On offergate

Look, I don't normally comment on things I'm writing about, because I feel it undermines my sterling reputation as an impartial observer, but the fact is we are likely never going to know what actually happened in discussions between former President Bill Clinton and U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak.
Only those two men will ever know what they said to each other, or whether what they said they said to each is actually what they said to each other. And, to be honest, I'm probably not alone in thinking the president has more important things to worry about at the moment anyway. (Actually, this fella has some pretty good ideas on what the Prez. should be doing.)
(Although Pat Toomey, the Republican candidate for the Senate seat Sestak is also seeking, has posed the question that if all this job offer business is really as innocent as it's been made out to be, why in the hell did it take so long for someone to just say so? It's a good point and I've been promised an answer.)
In the meantime, all this bluster over "offergate" is really starting to look familiar. U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. - who has led the charge on this, even going so far as to say it is possibly an impeachable offense - and Republican members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees have now asked the FBI to get involved. Call me an Obama apologist if you like (or you can chalk it up to "I'm just sayin' is all") but all this posturing really does make you wonder if these guys just woke from some sort of coma.
