Andrew Sullivan catches the water board loving Noonan in a stunning display of hypocrisy. This is gotcha journalism at its best:
“The Democrats had long labeled the
impeachment debate a distraction from the urgent business of a great
nation. But the Republicans argued that the pursuit of justice is the
business of a great nation. In winning this point, they caught the
falling flag, producing a triumph for the rule of law, a reassertion of
the belief that no man is above it, and a rebuke for an arrogance that
had grown imperial,” –

hard for me to look at a great nation issuing these documents and
sending them out to the world and thinking, ‘Oh, much good will come of
that.’ Sometimes in life you want to keep walking… Some of life has to
be mysterious.” – Peggy Noonan, April 19, 2009.
Remember also that the issue with Clinton was perjury in a civil suit. That required impeachment. But war crimes?
