Worth Repeating Again

Nothing causes howls of pain from right wingers more than a rehashing of the case of "George W. Bush and the Mysterious Gap in Service." They accept Bush's lame response that he has "some recollection" and we should all move along. We should ignore the fact that a mere mortal caught doing the same thing would have been drafted and shipped off. But never mind.. move along, move along.
From May to November 1972, Bush was in Alabama working in a US Senate campaign, and was required to attend drills at an Air National Guard unit in Montgomery. But there is no evidence in his record that he did so.
I said move along damnit!!!
David at Orcinus has more.
If only the targets of Bush and Co.'s opposition campaign of distortion would get off so easily. If this were a limbo contest Bush's bar would be held over our heads and the Democrats bar would by held flat to the floor. But defining the rules of the game are stock and trade for this group.
Witness, Halliburton employees get busted for taking kickbacks. So now we'll see that bar fly up. Is it really a conspiracy theory if there's overwhelming evidence? Of course we have Cheney making shit up again. No accountability there either.
I like this response to the discovery that a junior aide had found ways to get memos from the Democrats computer system.
"Those documents that I did read were, in my view, not obtained in any way that was improper, unlawful or unethical," he said. He described them as "inadvertent disclosures that came to me as a result of some negligence on the part of the Democrats' technology staff." His only obligation, he said, was to see that the Democrats were told that the computer system had a flaw that allowed Republican aides to read some of their memorandums.
Umm, it was their fault for not locking things down tight enough? I think a car theif should use that one. "I mean judge, if they didn't want me to take it they should have done more to protect it, I mean sheesh, we all know that its isn't stealing if the car wasn't locked right? I was a flaw in the owner's security staff that allowed me to drive away with it! I swear!!"
Can we all agree that Jim jumped the shark... a long time ago?
