#1 ..now a President just flat out lies, because he knows the MSM has his back.

#2 As the C-n-C of the U.S. mil it would have been appropo for him to lead by example, i.e. he should have stepped down out of shame (if he had any) or removed from his position of power. This would have been no different than what happens to the military members under his charge when they violate the UCMJ for committing the same (adultery) or lesser infractions (inappropriate relationship). He abused his position of power by seeking a self-gratifying sexual relationship w/a subordinate, and then lied about it. It was never about the sex, it was about the trust and confidence and the fact that this asshole treated the White House like a Motel-6. That a good number of Americans still don't get this issue is very disconcerting to me.

#3 Another outstanding moment in history.

Just as aside. I was listening to a guy on talk radio while going to the doctors office yesterday. The guy was saying that political campaigns were always dirty and underhanded. Early in our history, one campaign had a candidate referring to his opponent as: "The hermaphrodite half bred son of a squaw." What would be the response to such as assertion today?

#4 What is the meaning of "as?" Should have read "an aside."

#5 What would be the response to such as assertion today?

Ah, qualifies for a quota open seat on the Harvard law school faculty?

#6 Most likely that would qualify PK2. After all "An" and "as" differ only by one letter. Harvard would overlook such lapses in spelling and grammar.
