Consistency...

...has no part in the way those clowns* in Washington think or act. Among a horde of hypocrites jockeying for power, privilege and plunder, Hillary Clinton must rank near the top.

I'll give her credit for one thing: she never lets the truth get in the way of what she wants.

Take this statement her p.r. flack released this morning:

STATEMENT OF SENATOR HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON ON THE GROWING CONTROVERSY OVER THE FIRING OF U.S. ATTORNEYS

Washington, DC - With the White House now acknowledging a direct role in the Justice Department's U.S. Attorney firings, the president must affirmatively step forward to explain what he is doing to address the politicization of our prosecutorial system and what role he and his aides played in this controversy.

The president is the chief executive of the country and this matter goes to the heart of his ability to manage our federal law enforcement and U.S. Attorney system. It is imperative that the president act swiftly to explain what role the White House played in this situation, hold those who acted inappropriately accountable, and take responsibility.


I found this fascinating, especially after my memory was refreshed by this synopsis of a story from the New York Times, published back on March 24, 1993:

Attorney General Janet Reno today demanded the prompt resignation of all United States Attorneys, leading the Federal prosecutor in the District of Columbia to suggest that the order could be tied to his long-running investigation of Representative Dan Rostenkowski, a crucial ally of President Clinton.

This was, of course, in the days when Hillary fancied herself "co-president" along with Bubba....

If anyone ever asks (not likely, considering the pathetic kowtowing of the media to the wacko lefties), she'll no doubt say she "doesn't recall." That got her off the hook for some highly questionable actions in the past.

Or she might blame it on Janet Reno. Somehow, I doubt Reno did much more than brush her teeth without getting the okay from one or both of the Clintons.

What I find particularly repulsive about this -- aside from an innate loathing for Clinton and all she stands/claims to stand for -- is that we never seem to get past the eternal cycle of partisans slinging rocks at their opponents for doing the same things they themselves did, or would like to do. When one party is in power, the other demands to be cut into decision-making, which naturally doesn't happen.

The Republicans did this. Now the Democrats are doing it, albeit with more success because they seem better able to get away with doling out distortions, half-truths and blatant lies at will.

That's not something to be proud of.

And, lest anyone forget, I think Jorge Bush's real mistake here was not firing US Attorney Johnny Sutton's corrupt ass. Oddly, the Democrats aren't clamoring for his removal.

They're all crooks.



* I need to think of a better insult. I don't have anything against clowns.

I've never been fond of clowns.
Sometimes these "people" are so bizarre that it is hard to find any words to describe the.
I wish they'd fire more than a few US attorneys, most or all prosecutors 99% of congress, and then themselves.

In another note, I just heard a friend in NC may volunteer for Ron Paul. He may have more support than we think.

They wear different hats and they have different mascots, but underneath the facades they're all the same. Crooks!
