Condi Rice, Lying Liar

Don't miss this at the Daily Howler. It should be obvious by now that there is one set of rules for Democrats and a different set for Republicans. Clinton's irrelevant lie about the infamous blowjob warranted impeachment; Al Gore's unimaginably inconsequential honest error about which forest fire he inspected with James Lee Witt made him a liar and unfit for the presidency. On the other hand, Bush's patent lie to Congress about a matter of vital national security import--during the State of the Union Address, no less--doesn't matter. And apprently Rice's concerted effort to evade the 9/11 comission and then mislead them is inconsequential as well. She, like most of the rest of the Bush administration, is a liar, and her lies are not limited to small ones about private matters. She lies big and often about important things. And yet, somehow, it doesn't seem to matter to the majority of the American people.
