What a shameful waste of time, engergy, and govt resources. Now the Repos will similarly retaliate against the next Demo president. I can support impeaching and prosecuting Bushies for such things as the treatment of wounded veterans, lying about real matters, torturing, and many other authentic actions. But this is just non-sense to me. However, with all the horrible things that the Bushies have done, I don't object to one of them going to prison. I just wish it were over something authentically horrible.
That was pretty much my view of the Clinton prosecution for lying about Monica Lewinski. He should never have gotten asked such a question under oath, and I cared neither about him screwing around (even in the white house) nor about him lying about such a personal matter. However, he championed the very law by which he got asked this question under oath, a horrible feminist law that has caused (presumably) many innocent people to get railroaded. Had that law not passed -- with his advocacy and signature -- the civil case against him involving an allegation of sexual assault could never have included a "pattern of conduct" aspect. That law made sexual allegations special in that unlike any other criminal or civil allegation, juries and judges can consider not only the facts specific to the particular allegation, but also "pattern of conduct." Remember that prior to this law, if I got accused of armed robbery, adjudicators of this allegation could not consider that others have also accused me of other robberies.
This law makes false claims of rape easier to pursue, and thus easier to use as unfair weapons of revenge and extortion. Only for that reason did I not care that Clinton was getting railroaded; because he created the mechanism of his own railroading. However, this led to no public discussion or reconsideration of that unfair law. Instead it just made Clinton look sympathetic, like he was getting persecuted for an act that is -- or should be -- of no concern to anybody outside of his family, by people who just wanted to "get him."
