Move along, nothing to see here?

By Creature

You know, I have no idea if the Obama-passport-breech story is a big deal or not (it certainly makes me uncomfortable in a police-state/Nixonian sense), but the way die-hard Clinton supporters (Taylor Marsh, TalkLeft, and No Quarter) have completely dismissed it out of hand (because, obviously, only a few hours after the story breaks it's simple to conclude that there's "no there there") disturbs me.

Shouldn't we all be concerned when "low level" contract employees are blamed?

We have seen this passing of the buck, this shifting of blame down the chain, too many times during the Bush's years, and some kind of investigation is needed regardless of who one supports during this fucked-up, highly irrational primary season. "Move along, nothing to see here" should be left to the likes of Limbaugh, not to so-called progressives who, just a short time ago, were all fighting the good fight together.

Update: Clinton and McCain join the PassportGate club too. How soon before Condi says something like "no one could have foreseen" blah, blah, blah? She is worthless.

  • what disturbs me is that we have so many contractors working in the government. there used to be a time when one had to pass a civil service exam to become a government worker. now, they have what amounts to loyalist temps running the show. that worries me. there is no investment to do the right thing- no whistleblowers if you will.

  • Given what has happened throughout Bush's presidency, there is good reason to suspect that everything that happens in the federal government is somehow motivated by partisanship.
