I don't think she was psycho, either. I think she was incredibly
shrewd, manipulative, gold-digging bitch. I agree with Greg: if it
weren't for transactional immunity, there'd be a pretty damed good
extortion case, and perhaps other potential civil and criminal charges,
against her.

GMAFB. This kind of job reference / "old boy" crap happens all the
time. It's *perhaps* an impeachable offense, but it's one that *EVERY
SINGLE POLITICIAN* practices. It's the lubrication on which our whole
"wonderful" political system flows. ("Favors" being loosely defined,
here --- no matter if it's cigars, campaign contributions, or just
vaguely defined "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" exchange.
Here's a thought, Geege: maybe you're the one hung up on sex. I don't
care if it's a blowjob or a promise to put a large federal project in
*your* congressional district. Backscratching is backscratching, and it
happens all time, and if you're gonna make the call on it, be fair.) To
think otherwise is incredibly naive. Apply the idealistic bullshit
uniformly, if you want to apply it.

Nolo contendre on that one, counselor.

I think we can stipulate that. Nonetheless, stupidity's not an
impeachable offense...

Disassemble, disassemble, disassemble...
