When Are Democrats Indistinguishable From Republicans?
When there's an opportunity for hypocrisy, of course. A letter to the editor from the St. Pete Times:

Who's the bigger hypocrite, the Democrat screaming for the Republican politico's head for lying under oath after steadfastly defending President Clinton's lying under oath, or the Republican steadfastly defending his politico, accused of lying under oath, after calling for President Clinton's head when he lied under oath?

...Nobody should be surprised by perjury. Go to the courthouse, to a trial. The best is a divorce and next best is a criminal trial. You have to look very hard to find a husband or wife who isn't lying in the divorce trial to get what he or she believes he or she is entitled to. Jailhouse snitches lie every day to curry favor with prosecutors in order to get their sentences reduced, and co- defendants do the same, or simply lie to deflect blame from themselves. Nobody is searching for the truth anymore. We just want to win . . . at any cost.

The fact is, until we start charging and punishing perjury, our judicial system will continue to decline in both credibility and effectiveness. Then what?

The saddest part of this premise is that the people for whom this is intended will think it is talking about someone else.
