A Little Honesty

This was what a "Code Pink" activist said at an anti-Arnold rally:

.... She admitted that Bill Clinton (news - web sites)'s sexual peccadilloes were as inexcusable as Arnold's.

"The difference is that Clinton was so brilliant," she said.

"If Arnold was a brilliant pol and had this thing about inappropriate behavior, we'd figure a way of getting around it. I think it's to our detriment to go on too much about the groping. But it's our way in. This is really about the GOP trying to take California in 2004 and our trying to stop it."

Such naivete is ALMOST charming (if admittedly in the service of a vile agenda and mind-boggling hypocrisy). She has yet to learn Mike Kinsley's classic definition of a gaffe, namely when a politician accidentally says what he or she is really thinking.

I get it - the ends justifies the means - the fundamental of leftist philosophy.

Just confirmation of what we always knew, I guess.
