5. What's really irksome about all of that money
is that it was our money. Seems to me that it could have been spent on any number of other things, like health care, education, and even defense. But they had to get to the bottom of the affair, so to speak. That's $100 million we'll never see again. A total waste.

7. Exactly, neocons know how to spend tax payer money in order
...to take away the rights, political power, economic independence and enslave tax payers to their will.

6. NOT the Lewinsky affair....
The right winger's obsession with it and their relentless hounding of Bill Clinton....

IF anything distracted BC during his last couple of years in office, this was it. Fucking hypocritical lying bastards.

8. Actually, had the STARR INQUISITION not been going on.......
.........and SO MANY FBI agents being used to track down EVERY Clinton aquaintance, there MIGHT have been enough agents in the late 90's to realize that we had ILLEGAL ALIENS learning how to fly PASSENGER JETS, without ANY CONCERN about LEARNING HOW TO LAND THE DAMNED THINGS!!!

I have a Republican friend who used to like to say that he was GLAD that Starr hounded Clinton for so long, because, in his opinion, it kept Clinton from "taking away gun rights"...???

Kenneth Starr is probably MORE responsible for 9/11 than BILL CLINTON EVER WAS!!!

THANK GINGRICH, DELAY, AND THE REST OF THE GOP GESTAPO of the day!!
