Clinton’s lies vs. lies by Bush

Recently there have been several requests in the letters column from right-wingers wanting to know what liberals were doing when Bill Clinton was lying about his dalliance with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office.

I was cringing inside, thinking, “Oh for God’s sake, Bill, look at the damage you’re doing!”

Now I have a question for the right-wingers. Why are they silent in the face of the remarkable flow of lies currently coming from the Oval Office? While they remain fixated on the one lie they can pin on Bill Clinton, their hero has generated enough lies to inspire a whole book on the subject: “The Lies of George W. Bush,” by David Corn.

Apparently lies about sex are bad, but lies that have led to the deaths of thousands of Iraqis and hundreds of young military people are OK.
