    what has that got to do with the merits of the case? Is this about legitimate concerns over the actions of the DoJ? Or is it just an opportunity to bash folks for presumed hypocrisy?

    If the latter, I'll take a pass.

    •  There is no "presumed" hypocrisy. (0+ / 0-)

      Hypocrisy is a fact in this matter.  And I'm pretty damn sick of it.

      Show me where I'm wrong that no Democrat would have called this a scandal had Bush encountered the exact same events.  Tell me that there would be no front page stories or diaries reciting how Bush was wrong, how this was, indeed, a scandal, actually three of them.

      That's my point.  Follow the thread, I suggest.  

      •  A speculative opinion isn't a fact. (0+ / 0-)

        It doesn't matter what the odds favoring the speculation are.

        You're arguing about hypothetical hypocrisy over a hypothetical scandal in a hypothetical alternate scenario. You're choosing to do this rather than discussing the issues material to the actual situation.

        That remains a fact, regardless of how much you may insist otherwise, in this thread or any other.
