JIM GERAGHTY:

There's one set of rules for regular folks, and another set of rules for celebrities, former high-ranking government officials, and other "important" people. If we break the rules, we pay the price. If a Dan Rather lies on the air, or Sandy Berger steals classified documents, there's no consequence.

Anybody feel like contacting their CBS affiliate? And saying, "that's it, we're taking out our frustration on you guys, because we trusted you when you guys said, 'the network is investigating, and we're confident they will handle this properly'"? I mean, the suits at CBS are laughing at us.

And the pajamahadeen always laugh last.

Call me crazy, but I think there's a connection between that sort of double standard, and things like this.
