Abuse Of Power?

Congressman Hinchey today on Sean Hannity's radio show was given a shot at providing evidence to support his allegations that Karl Rove planted the fake Texas Air National Guard documents that Dan Rather attempted to pass off as genuine. Like most left wingers, he attempted to claim that his speculation and his intellectual back flips to link Rove to the documents was "proof".
Basically his logic went like this.
Statement: The White House manipulates the Press.
Statement: Sean Hannity interviewed a gentleman that gathered press credentials under false information.
Conclusion: Because of these two "facts" Karl Rove planted the documents.
Such logic is dizzying. To say the least!
But I guess we can use the same logic to prove other things right?
Statement: George Soros is a socialist.
Statement: Soros contributed to MoveOn.org which donated money to the Kerry campaign.
Conslusion: Because of these two statements, John Kerry must be a socialist.
WOOOHOOOO! I like this game! It's much easier than expending energy to create a rational thought!
However there is something worse that happened during Congressman Hinchey's time on the program. Sean Hannity claims that during the break the dishonorable Congressman threatened to use his power as a member of Congress to attack Mr. Hannity personally. Sean Hannity claims to have this threat on tape.
Of course when asked several times if he had said it, Hinchey never answered the question but instead like a good little Marxist simply answered another unasked question. He would ramble on and on about how he had no desire to harm Sean Hannity or attack him or use his position to do him harm. Problem was, that wasn't the question that was asked.
Hannity pressed the Congressman time and again to deny that he had said what Hannity said he said. Hinchey declined each time to deny it.
Hannity said that he would hold the tape and only release it if Hinchey tried to make good on his threat. I say, release the tape now. Not only release it, but forward it to the ethics committee in the House. If Hannity's accusations are true then Congressman Hinchey has committed a high crime by threatening to abuse his office to harm someone. And if he committed a high crime then impeachment proceedings must be begun immediately to remove this low life of a Congressman.
Don't hold the tape Sean. Put it out there. Let us hear it and decide what punishment fits the crime and abuse of power of a Congressman that thinks his position gives him the right to threaten a citizen of these United States while throwing around accusations about the White House that he can't back up.
In the future will it be discovered that Rove did in fact plant the documents? I don't know. But so far all we have is some black box logic used to spit out an allegation. And a Congressman needs to act in a manner more befitting the office he holds. And he certainly doesn't need to be threatening civilians. And if the tape proves to contain the threat Sean Hannity claims it does, he should be made an example of.
