NOT Shutting Down the Investigation

Too often, Americans are asked to "put it behind you, for the good of the country". That was true of the violent 60s radical movement, the Whitewater investigation, the Clinton impeachment/trial, the death of Ron Brown, the Clinton Foundation irregularities, the WMD "snafu", the Tea Party/other conservative attacks by the IRS, the VA deaths, and on, and on, and on.

The scenario is always the same:

  • Deny everything
  • Accuse those who question you of being haters, conspiracy theorists, evil
  • Lawyer up and drag your feet about compliance with court orders
  • Bring in the media to whitewash your actions, and imply saintly forebearance in the face of these unjust attacks by pathetic people
  • Dig up accusations of similar type - sex, drugs, theft - and throw them against Republicans, particularly if that person is in a leadership position
  • Use influence to get a Republican indicted - make sure to have media there for the "perp walk"
  • Repeat, repeat, repeat
  • Last, admit the most innocuous charge, claiming an "honest mistake", and loudly proclaim the need to "move on"
Lather, rinse, repeat. Every time.

Rush Limbaugh has taken some heat from questioning the WMD intel given to Bush. He is now WONDERING whether this was an accident, or something more. For that, he is being labeled a tin-foil nut (BTW, no one uses tin foil - it's aluminum foil, perfectly adequate to protect against BOTH alpha and beta rays. Not, however, gamma - only lead will stop them).

Linda Fox, please stop with the fake news. Aluminum foil is perfectly adequate against alpha and beta rays, but to protect against mind rays, we use tin foil. Tin.
