There is one letter here, that - aside from being moronic - is so unbelievably scary that I cannot reprint it here. Suffice it to say that this particular writer actually believs that there is nothing inherently evil about criminalizing a point of view that runs counter to the far-left-wing PC intellectual fad of the moment (as Canada does). Read it if you dare, but this twit doesn't deserve any more attention, and hopefully he'll crawl back into his hole, where our liberties would be safe from him and his ilk. Pure. Undiluted. Evil.
So will go for the lighter side: intellectual dishonesty, Bill Clinton and penis jokes:
The right-wing spinning point is unmistakable: Scooter Libby was a slightly misguided victim of a political witch hunt who acted alone. [Er, I don't recall anybody calling this a "witch hunt" - anyone that matters, anyway. But, by all means, feel free to make shit up to prove your point! -ed] After all, if there was anything substantive to the original charges that an undercover CIA agent was illegally exposed by the White House administration in an act of political retaliation, the indictments against Libby would not have been rooted solely in legal mumbo jumbo concerning his grand jury testimony.
I'm sure the legions of Republicans claiming exoneration for Libby, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and their ilk are willing to grant the same judgment to Bill Clinton [Heh. He just used the word "Dick" in the same sentence as "Bill Clinton". - ed.].
M@RK J0H@NS0N, ST. PAUL.
One problem with this line of reasoning, if it can be called that.
No, it actually cannot be called that. Let's call it what it is: not-very-well-thought-out-drooling-disingenuousness-since-I'm-pretty-sure-Mark-didn't-consider-perjury-a-serious-violation-back-then.
Where was I? Oh yeah: there's one problem with this not-very-well-thought-out-drooling-disingenuousness-since-I'm-pretty-sure-Mark-didn't-consider-perjury-a-serious-violation-back-then. No actually theres two:
1) Clinton's license to practice in the federal courts was suspended for a year and he was forced to pay a $90,000 civil contempt fine for lying in a deposition, and suborning perjury. Sccoter hasn't had his day in court yet.
2) Nobody who matters on the right is minimalizing the import of the perjury and obstruction charges in Scooter's indictment. But it is notable, that there were no other indictees or crimes charged, is it not?
So who's applying different standards again?
So, we're all sorry for your disappointment that you didn't get Karl Rove's head on a platter, but could you please shove your sorry ill-informed temper tantrum letter up your butt, and never poison the public discourse with your inane crap again.
Perhaps you could do something more constuctive with your time like voting for Chris Coleman 47 times under phony voter registrations. That's what you lefties do for fun, isn't it?
Thank you, and piss off.
