Newt and Slick Willie: Equally Reprehensible?
By: John Lillpop
Revelations about former Speaker Gingrich’s extra-marital affair while he was pursuing Bill Clinton’s scalp for impeachment are titillating, but only to those seek to fill their hollow skulls with unmitigated pap.
In other words, liberals have not been this excited since South Viet Nam fell to the communists!
While it is true that both Gingrich and Slick fell victims to lust and debauchery, it is not true that their transgressions were equally serious.
In the case of President William Jefferson Clinton, it was never about a “private matter between consenting adults,” despite the nonsensical spin fabricated by liberals like Laney Davis and other Clinton apologists.
Rather, Bill Clinton stood accused of perjury, subornation of perjury, and obstruction of justice.
Mr. Clinton’s felony crimes–not his sexual dalliances– lead to his impeachment, disbarment in Arkansas, and revocation of his right to argue before the United States Supreme Court. The later two sanctions were subsequently lifted with the passage of time.
Given his position of power, Clinton was surely guilty of sexual harassment as well, both as president and while Governor of Arkansas.
In fact, if Clinton had been a Republican, liberals in Congress, egged on by feminist wackos, would have pressed for his immediate castration, followed by impeachment and removal from office.
As it was, NOW and other feminist organizations seemed more interested in midnight basketball than the deliberate and premeditated stalking of young females by the most powerful man on earth.
Newt and Slick: Equally reprehensible? Don’t you believe it!
John Lillpop is a recovering liberal, “clean and sober” since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are considered reasonable!
