Another lie, another slander -- just par for the course

Jonah Goldberg points out that the most vicious of slurs and smears no longer even cause us to pause:
We have become so accustomed to distortions and outright lies, you'd think it's patriotic to insinuate decent nominees are racists, sexists or liars. "Oh, that's just par for the course" is no longer an observation; it's a rationalization.

Of course, this is not limited to the arena of confirmation hearings. Lies and slander are the essence of the Democratic playbook. Dishonesty is the liberal staple and it leads to the vote fraud, election violence, and bogus prosecutions that the Democrats seem so fond of.

It permeates every Democratic special interest group. Civil rights groups, feminists, homeless advocates, environmentalists, anti-war agitators, unions, gay rights groups, et al -- they all use the big lie and the vicious slander to promote their causes. When they all come together to support Democratic election campaigns, the tactics don't change.

We're not surprised at the dishonesty of Congressional Democrats in sliming judicial nominees because dishonesty and slander have become a daily assault. Is it any wonder that the Clinton administration was so corrupt? The only shock would have happened if thousands of Democrats had come to work for an administration and hadn't produced dozens of scandals and hundreds or thousands of crimes.
