Good Person Doesn’t

07Jul10

Oh, by the way… Bill Clinton was among those who misrepresented Robert Byrd’s many years of overt racism and hatred for Blacks.

“He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done and he spent the rest of his life making it up.

And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians.”

We’re not looking for perfect, we’re looking for a single standard for judging those who transgress. Clinton was lying, like all the other Dems, about Byrd’s racism.

    I can understand Clinton’s excusing Byrd’s more youthful “pursuits” given the manner in which Clinton dismissed his own “misrepresentations” WARNING: Headache Alert – http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/transcr.htm :

    “Q If you’re wrong and it’s within definition (1), did you engage in sexual relations under the definition, with Monica Lewinsky?

    A But, Mr. Wisenberg, I have said all along that I would say what I thought it meant, and you can infer that I didn’t. This is an unusual question, but it’s a slippery slope. We can — I have tried to deal with some very delicate areas here, and, and in one case I’ve given you a very forthright answer about what I thought was not within here.

    “All I can tell you is, whatever I thought was covered, and I thought about this carefully. And let me just point out, this was uncomfortable for me. I had to acknowledge, because of this definition, that under this definition I had actually had sexual relations once with Gennifer Flowers, a person who had spread all kinds of ridiculous, dishonest, exaggerated stories about me for money. And I knew when I did that, it would be leaked. It was. And I was embarrassed. But I did it.

    “So, I tried to read this carefully. I can tell you what I thought it covered, and I can tell you that I do not believe I did anything that I thought was covered by this.”

    But as for President Obama’s acceptance of Byrd’s segregationist dalliances, well… I hope he doesn’t bump into Mr. Malik “Cracker-hater” Zulu Shabazz, Esq. anytime soon.
