I turned on the morning news, because I am a glutton for punishment, and they are still talking about Imus, and giving more time to the Imus Apologist Chorus. Meanwhile, the White House has been caught doing something that makes the infamous gap on the Nixton tape look like an innocent little whoopsie - an 18 minute gap on one audiotape v. 5 MILLION emails they are required to archive going missing - and it's all but ignored. Sllly "lefties" getting all worked up over a little lawbreaking, sit down and let Blond Ken Doll Weatherman tell you about the weather in Boston today! Oh, wait, now we're talking about the Duke lacrosse players, and Prince William's breakup, and the Boston Marathon - how's that weather in Boston? Oh wait, it's the minister's wife who shot her husband! Wow, let me get anther cup of coffee, that's a matter of national importance.
I was in junior high when Nixon waved bye-bye and went back to CA in disgrace, and I remember what a huge event it was. The months and months of news coverage that preceded it got brain numbing, especially if you were in junior high, but it was clear that Nixon's people did wrong and he was held responsible. Bush is held responsible for nothing in his own administration. But obviously the ongoing revelations about the current administration are less important than the Prince William breakup. The contrast between then and now is just surreal.
