Bill Clinton, Ken Starr, the Republicans, Sex in the Oval Office, and Impeachment

12 Nov

I realized last night that a pattern seems to be developing.  The Republicans spent most of Bill Clinton’s term trying to find a way to impeach him.  Although they attacked from several fronts, the only thing they ended up with were perjury and obstruction of justice, both of which would not have occurred without the investigation in the first place.  Apparently, they are going to continue this process with each Democratic President from now on.  Truth be told, there’s only been one other, so it’s just two at this point, but the insistence that no Democrat should ever hold public office again seems to be ingrained in the people running the party right now.

What I’m really curious about, though, is what would have happened had Clinton not lied.  What would Starr’s reaction have been if he said, “Monica gives really good head.  Sometimes if I had a bad day or was under a lot of stress, I would have someone bring her to the Oval Office to give me a blow job.”  That would have meant that there was no perjury or obstruction of justice, and no possibility of impeachment.  Clinton had already been reelected, so essentially nothing would have happened, and the $70 million dollars would have been an even bigger waste. 

I don’t know how much money Darrell Issa has spent keeping his promise to hold investigations five days a week, forty weeks a year, but I suspect the results will be the same.  They will never come up with anything concrete, nothing supported by anything but their own hatred, and Barack Obama will serve the entire eight years of his Presidency.
