The surest sign of desperation
Damn! We knew we should have organized a betting pool based how long it would take the GOP to invoke Bill Clinton's name to deflect criticism of the new Taft ethics charges.
We agree with Mauk that lying about getting laid and getting a blowjob is not on the same level and far less serious than getting handjobs on the golf course from thieves and grifters.
"We expect [criticism] from the Democrats," said Jason Mauk, of the Ohio Republican Party. "It's unfortunate that they're not providing proactive, positive leadership ideas for moving Ohio forward. They're engaged in political partisanship.
"These are some of the same people who just a few years ago were defending President Clinton against charges of obstruction of justice and perjury, and now they're suggesting a governor who failed to report some golf outings should step down or be impeached. I don’t think those two are on the same level," Mauk said.
