David Broder just said on Meet the Press that the Democrats were the big losers in the Trent Lott affair. The reason: “When the Democrats had a moral issue in front of them in the form of President Clinton, they denounced him” but refused to remove him from office. Yes, exactly David, because getting a blow job is more-or-less equivalent to supporting segregation. Bill Clinton’s actions harmed no one at all, whereas segregation was responsible for causing untold misery to millions of people over the course of decades. Sounds about the same to me.
A.) It misrepresents Broder.
B.) Broder is normally a liberal hack, but now he is being attacked vicisously by the Clinton kool-aid crowd.
C.) No one is capable of discussing Clinton rationally, and I am included.
D.) The lawsuit against Clinton was brought by the person who was harmed, so it is foolish to claim no one was harmed.
E.) Trent Lott is a bigot, but you can not blame segregation on him.
