    This paragraph of Melody's sums it all up:

    I know they'll tell you that my pending statement to the Senate cannot be trusted because I did some stupid things as a 20-year-old kid two decades ago -- even as they try to tell you that Mr. Bolton's bahavior toward me in Moscow and Kyrgyzstan 11 years ago just doesn't matter. They'll try to make my actions of two decades ago the story -- setting aside the forgiveness Mr. Bush grants himself about his own history of questionable behavior by stating, "When I was young and irresponsible, I was young and irresponsible."

    As of tonight, it's clear that I've truly risked everything to tell you -- and the U.S. Senate -- about Mr. Bolton. I've already told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee counsel about this episode in my life, and I remain committed to to going through with my testimony tomorrow. They still want to depose me.

    Hell, if I get a parking ticket 20 years ago, does that mean I'm lying today?  Of course not!

    The Democrats need to do what the Republicans did -- with far, far less justification -- in the case of Jeff Gannon:  Shout "Sleaze Politics" as loud as they can.

    In fact, this only goes to prove the point made by Melody and the other witnesses against Bolton:  That Bolton and his allies are vicious monsters who will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who gets in their way.

      ...that if you are questioned under testimony regarding your plausibility, then the above paragraph would be the exact thing you need to say.
