Carl Sandburg once wrote, “Why does a hearse horse snicker/ Hauling a lawyer away?”
And why should I snicker when yet another Republican pol is caught with his zipper down? Gingrich, Craig, Vitter, etc., etc., and now the beat goes on: Nevada senator John Ensign.
Snicker? When I gave Clinton and Edwards and Spitzer a pass?
Here’s why (h/t to Doonesbury):
“Last year I had an affair. I violated the vows of my marriage. It is the worst thing I have ever done in my life.”
— Senator John Ensign
“I came to that conclusion recently, and frankly it’s because of what he has put the country through. He has no credibility left.”
— Ensign, calling for Bill Clinton to resign over the Lewinsky affair
