I had the misfortune of passing by the telly when Kay Hutchinson was taking the newest leak spin – that perjury is a mere technicality – for a test drive on one of the Sunday morning yak-fests. I was exposed to a toxic dose of hypocri-trons. Fortunately, Think Progress and the DSCC have concocted an antidote: scads of entertaining quotes from the days when Hutchinson and her ilk were outraged by perjury. (I have yet to see a single news story refer to these flip-flops.) It must just kill these folks to see Fitzgerald repeatedly portrayed as fair, honest, thorough, and non-partisan.
I certainly hope that if there is going to be an indictment that says something happened, that it is an indictment on a crime and not some perjury technicality where they couldn’t indict on the crime and so they go to something just to show that their two years of investigation was not a waste of time and taxpayer dollars.
That’s not just a flip-flop; that’s a full gainer!
