It’s their new Whitewater.

The Republicans could have looked inward and taken an inventory of the principles they can all agree on get about the business of rebuilding their party. They chose tabloid scandal mongering instead:

During the December 9 edition of Fox News’ Hannity & Colmes, host Sean Hannity asked fellow Fox News host Mike Huckabee: “Why is he [Obama] friends with all these radical, corrupt people? What — what does that say about him?” Huckabee responded: “Well, I think that his past relationships are certainly questionable. I still think Bill Ayers ought to be in prison.” Co-host Alan Colmes then said, “Didn’t we have an election? Didn’t we just decide all this?” to which Huckabee replied: “Yeah, we did. But I’m just talking about Bill Ayers. But Barack Obama, I don’t think has any connection to the specific bribery issue.”

Hannity later added: “I wonder if we’re beginning to see, perhaps, a lot of what we suspected about Barack Obama. A lot — that I think the Tony Rezko issue is going to be a big problem for him, especially because he’s all over this document. The pres — the word president-elect is mentioned 44 times in the document. Pretty troubling.” In fact, none of the references to “President-elect” in the complaint against Blagojevich indicate any wrongdoing by Obama. Rather, some of the instances in which the term “President-elect” is used suggest that Obama and his advisers were unwilling to conspire with Blagojevich, while other mentions were mere descriptions of the Senate seat vacated by Obama or references to his forthcoming presidential administration.

Lies and the lying liars who tell them.
