Double standards of the Versailles villagers

Gene Lyons

Take the Valerie Plame affair. What if the Clinton White House had deliberately identified a CIA employee to punish her husband for not going along with an administration line that helped drive the nation to war ? What if Vice President Al Gore’s chief of staff had been convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice ? Would Bill Clinton have survived to commute his sentence before being impeached, convicted and removed from office ? Would Gore have escaped criminal indictment ?

To ask the question is to answer it. Goodness, Washington went berserk over Clinton’s ignominious sex lies. Add a beautiful blonde and the word “treason,” and the Capitol dome would have levitated into the heavens. On “Meet the Press,” Tim Russert would have spontaneously combusted.
