I can't stop laugh-crying.
Here it is, in all its awful splendor:
The president should announce that he has told the Justice Department to appoint an independent investigator with bulldog instincts and bipartisan credibility. The list of candidates could start with Kenneth Starr, who chased down the scandals, real and imagined, of the Clinton presidency. It might include Patrick Fitzgerald, who was special counsel in the Valerie Plame affair, winning the conviction of Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, and who has successfully prosecuted two corrupt governors of Illinois, one from each party.Yes -- I know that Bill Keller is no longer the Executive Editor of the Times.
But if his history and stature at the newspaper make it hard to avoid the conclusion that this kind of thinking is representative of thinking at the paper as a whole.
Yes -- that's the ticket:
Bring back Ken Starr!
I'm ready for the Obama Penis Apocalypse of 2013.
How about you?
