Suck it

This just may be the most reprehensible column of a long and enabling career.

Looming beyond the publicized cases of these relatively low-level operatives is the fundamental accountability question: What about those who approved of their actions? If accountability is the standard, then it should apply to the policymakers and not just to the underlings. Ultimately, do we want to see Cheney, who backed these actions and still does, standing in the dock?

Of course, David Broder does not. ‘L’Etat, c’est Dick!

It doesn’t matter who got raped, or threatened with powertools, we just cannot have people called to account in America for what they do — in the name of all-holy bipartisanship. The kind of position you would expect from Broder’s fellow quail devourer Karl Rove.

He goes on to remind us that Bill Clinton lying about a blowjob was a disgrace that required resignation.

So war crimes get a pass while being disingenuous about foreplay is a crime against humanity. Got it.

He ends on a different subject though it should apply all around:

I made an egregious error…I should have known better.

Indeed you should.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
