Why I, a Self-Described Independent, Keep Picking on the Republicans.

Excellent op-ed piece summing it up here at BTC News by Weldon Berger.

Money quotes:

Assuming it’s not a parody, the stomach-churning essence of the argument is that crime is now indistinguishable from politics. While Davis admonishes Republicans for their “criminalizing politics” mantra, he likewise chastises Democrats for finding an indifference to national security in the Plame leak.

For going on 40 years now, Democrats have gotten their asses kicked when it comes to hardball politics. Lanny Davis and Libby/Rove are emblematic of why. If Davis wants to wish a pox on both parties’ houses, he should probably wait until Democrats get a house.
