White House Christmas List

It's so disconcertingly unreal to hear a commentator like Peggy Noonan decry the Left for its savagery. People like her truly are ostriches with their heads in the sand; they can't really be as unintelligent as they appear. Here is a quote from Paul Krugman's latest that tells us a lot about what goes on when comparing the right wing to the left:

"The current Congress has shown no inclination to investigate the Bush administration. Last year The Boston Globe offered an illuminating comparison: when Bill Clinton was president, the House took 140 hours of sworn testimony into whether Mr. Clinton had used the White House Christmas list to identify possible Democratic donors. But in 2004 and 2005, a House committee took only 12 hours of testimony on the abuses at Abu Ghraib."

Yeah, the supposed misuse of that Christmas list was heavy, apparently worth much more time than an international torture scandal. The Christmas List is almost as infamous a crime as Travelgate. This sounds like a freakin' joke, but it's for real.
