Lost amidst all of the bullshit surrounding
Hillary Quayle Sarah Palin, the utter and complete lack of vetting by the McCain campaign, and the apparent decision (based on last night’s speeches) of the Republicans to desperately return to Rove-style culture-war election tactics, was this particular bombshell:
First reported by ABC, but lost in the noise, Joe Biden said yesterday that an Obama administration could pursue criminal charges against the Bush administration if they are elected in November:
“If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued […] Not out of vengeance, not out of retribution — out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no attorney general, no president — no one is above the law.”
Not nearly as “newsworthy” as Romney raging against “Eastern Elites”, Giuliani doing his Mussolini lisp about “cosmopolitans” and
Hillary Quayle Sarah Palin braying about her experience as the mayor of an 8,000-person town, but I think it might merit some coverage…..
