One of These Things is Not Like the Other

Martha Stewart was found guilty on four counts of obstructing justice for lying to federal investigators. She was sentenced to five months in prison.

Roger Clemons was charged with lying to Congress, facing up to 21 months in prison if convicted. He was acquitted.

Scooter Libby told the truth to Congress, but his recollections differed from another witness, so he was sentenced to a 30-month prison term, which was later commuted.

Eric Holder both lied repeatedly and presented false testimony to Congress (Mr. Holder believes there's a difference!). In addition, he refuses to turn over documents that could clarify exactly who is responsible for the Fast and Furious debacle which lead to the death of Border Patrol agent Brian A. Terry and literally hundreds of Mexican citizens.

Guess which one of these four is not or has not been under indictment for lying? Guess which one liberal Democrats are trying in vain to defend?

" undermine the person who is assigned to block the voter suppression in our country..."

Hey, Nancy! What do you call someone who is "assigned" to do something and then doesn't do it? Note she didn't say "the person who actually has blocked voter suppression in our country", because that would mean doing things like prosecuting the New Black Panthers when they practiced voter intimidation in Philadelphia, which he didn't.

Why is it that when anyone else lies to Congress over matters as insignificant as to whether or not baseball players used performance enhancing drugs, they throw the book at them, but when someone sworn to uphold the law, who holds the highest law enforcement office in the land, lies over policies with international repercussions, that got people killed because of seeming incompetence, with indications of a cover up of that incompetence, which could reach to the highest levels of government, partisan hacks like Nancy Pelosi can't even generate a little faux attention?

No, Nancy Pelosi, running away from Holder's lies and incompetence like Barack Obama running away from his record on the economy, is left with nothing but race baiting innuendo.

Someone tell me again how this ditz got to be Speaker of the House? This Halloween, when you need to tell a scary story, tell the one how Nancy Pelosi was second only to Joe Biden in the line of succession to the Presidency. But first, warn anyone with a weak heart!
