Washington comPost headline: "Democrats Criticize Bush For Saying DeLay's Innocent"

Democratic leaders sternly criticized President Bush yesterday for saying former House majority leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) is innocent of felonious campaign finance abuses, suggesting his comments virtually amounted to jury tampering before DeLay stands trial.
I guess that I never saw James Carville, madder than a Katrina evacuee having exhausted the free money and needing to get a job, getting on TV saying that Bill Clinton was innocent of everything he was ever accused of: lying about Paula Jones, lying about Gennifer Flowers, lying about Monica Lewinsky, etc. No, Carville and Paul "The Forehead" Begala and Madeleine Dumpty Not2bright and other Clintonistas never got on TV or in the fishwraps and said that Clinton was innocent...before any trial was even held.

What? Carvile et al really did defend Clinton before and during trials and legal proceedings, loudly proclaiming his innocence? You know, that innocence that resulted in his admission that he lied under oath (most folks call that perjury) and resulted in his disbarrment for five years? Nah, couldn't be! After all, that would make them hypocrites, and we all know how consistent Dems are and how they practice what they preach...don't we?

For those of you in blue states, the prior paragraph was sarcasm.
