A bunch of petty Democratic partisans got their tighty-whities in a bunch Thursday because this web site had the audacity to publish a news story about former Bill Clinton security advisor Sandy Berger’s incredibly stupid and illegal stunt of removing classified documents, hiding them, and then having to retrieve them from a dumpster.
They just could not believe we would run a story about one of Clinton’s minions breaking the law. How on earth would we stoop to such things when it is our mission, they say, to concentrate only on the bad things that George W. Bush and his gang of Republican thugs try to foist on the American public day after day?
Typical partisan pap from a group of political sycophants who think fairness is exposing only the wrongdoings of the other side while ignoring the same kinds of actions of their own.
It is this kind of bullshit that cheapens political debate in this country and makes any real reform impossible. Partisans don’t want reform. They just want their side to have the power and the upper hand. Reform is always for the other guys.
And the partisans accept the biased crap that their one-side only web sites put out as gospel, ignoring the old adage that there are three sides to every story: Your side, my side and the facts.
There is no doubt that George W. Bush may go down as the worst President in American history. He is a lunatic, a madman on a mission from God, albeit a God that exists only in his deranged view of the world. We at Capitol Hill Blue are always around to point out what a danger this man is to freedom, justice and the American way.
But we were also around in the 1990s to ride herd on another despotic American President, a philandering whoremonger named Bill Clinton who lied to the American people, abused the power of his office and deserved a lot more punishment than the disbarment he received for his many crimes.
Clinton is, and always will be, Arkansas trailer trash and no amount of makeovers can mask the unbridled and unprincipled political ambitions of his wife, the carpet bagging Senator from New York.
Let’s not forget that a number of Clinton’s gang went to jail or left their positions in disgrace because of multiple crimes against the state. Sandy Berger is just the latest Clinton crony to get caught.
Republicans blew their chance to nail Clinton because they got wrapped up in the tawdry tales of blowjobs from interns in the Oval Office and strayed away from the corruption of Whitewater that triggered the original investigations.
The Clintons went into such deals virtually broke, yet left the White House millionaires. They continue to live high on the hog while their legal bills and other obligations remain unpaid. Such antics are not the actions of honest people.
I consider both Clintons lairs, scumbags and crooks. Both belong in jail, not public office and certainly not back in the White House.
So a word of advice to partisans of any political stripe: If you want one-sided political pap, try DailyKos, NewsMax, Free Republic or Democratic Underground.
They pander to partisans.
We do not.
