  •  Its Clinton's impeachment and Iranamuck (2+ / 0-)

    Its not Watergate that shapes the behavior (and btw, Bush had at least four Watergate-size breaches).  Its the memory of 1) the Iran Contra hearings (which convinced Congress that they are incapable of effectively investigating deep corruption and/or doing anything about it, and 2) the memory of Clinton's impeachment - which still creates fear among pathetic dems that action against Bushies looks like tit-for-tat.

    This is a dangerous time for democrats - not only will they actively look to open and flush the memory hole, but we could easily see all over again the sort of spineless wallowing (Exhibit 1: the Hillarycare debacle) that led to the backlash in 1994.

    Will W get to keep Saddam's trophy pistols? Will he get to collect unemployment?
