Glenn Reynolds has another sibling taunt of Clinton Did It Too on MSNBC: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/...
Ah, the new twist.
Now Clinton identified that Saddam was evil, therefore everything that W has done would have been done too. OR wouldn't have been done, but needed to be done. OR Would have been done but much more poorly. Yea, I couldn't follow it either.
I can't keep all these tautologies straight, much less what Suzy is Selling by the Seashore.
Here's what I sent to him in the comments. Really, we can't let this go unchallenged. Remember, for the GOP to succeed, all it takes is for the good men (& women) to do nothing.
- I don't think Reid views the indictment as lame, but maybe since it didn't include a blue dress, perhaps so. I'm not quite as up-to-date on my law as many of our lemonade stand proprietors.
- He didn't demand an investigation, he demanded progress on an ONGOING investigation. Spending too much time squeezing those lemons?
- Ah yes, the Clinton did it too! defense. There is no evidence in any of this that the Clinton administration would have prosecuted its efforts at neutralizing Iraq in the same way this administration has bungled their, excuse me, fought their way. Indeed there is contrary evidence, of qualitatively better results, just over the curve of the earth in North Korea. Oh, and didn't I just sense that the current administration is back to trying the same Clintonian efforts with that card carrying member of the axis of evil?
- Lastly, are you saying that EVEN if War was required, on this particular evil of the cacophony of evils extant, that we would have gone without armour, without vests, without a plan for the aftermath, without preparation? There is no way. Although, it would probably be true that the Clinton administration might not have had the Oil Ministry quite as high an after-conflict protectorate.
I know you loath comments - as do most wingnuts - I mean, your blog doesn't allow them. And I sometimes agree that wingnuts do fly off, but geez, maybe if you had allowed comments someone could try to pass along advice, even to the Lemonade/Clarence Darrow wannabe you are, sound advice, like, oh, Gee Glenn, Try something NEW, try thinking!
