Comments: Time For An Old Joke

The source is a presidential counselor. Apparently a good rat knows how to flee a sinking ship.

Yes. And rats don't get much better than these people.

What if the source was Harriet Meiers? If she was confirmed to the Supreme Court, would the rule still hold by which she would not be required to recuse herself, if the case against her went to the Supreme Court?

I believe she's only allowed to not recuse herself if she's old hunting buddies with Dick Cheney.

Sophisticated thinkers (for instance, Richard Cohen) understand the whole idea of "rules" and "laws" and "abominations before God" is passe.


Again, you're making the mistake of thinking there are rules of any kind. This will only hinder you if you—like all good Americans—yearn to climb to the top of the huge hill of dung.

I think we now know the truth - Clinton did NOT "have sex with" Monica (not real sex.)
