Do you solemnly swear?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 11, 2008 at 8:37 AM

The Iconoclast suggests that it might have been fun to get former Sen. Tim Hutchinson under oath to ask whether he'd had an extramarital affair with the aide he later married. This week, Hutchinson finally answered the long hanging question with an unsworn "no."

It was just such a scenario, TI recalls, that led to Hutchinson's vote for -- and Bro. Asa prosecute for -- removal of President Clinton for not being truthful about his private life. Calling Kenneth Starr. But now, instead of sex, let's look at illegal torture, sprying on American citizens and lying about the war and sundry other matters of great national importance.
