John Edwards was right; there are two Americas; one that has to follow the regular laws, and one for the big people.
NBC’s David Gregory skates on his “30 round magazine’ pratfall.
Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
It seems to me that if there was a clear violation of the law, then the Prosecutor should prosecute it. The arguments in mitigation (clean record) go toward the sentence.
Take it in another context – suppose I went to a school and threatened to shoot a bunch of schoolchildren with a .22 revolver, then claimed I did it to make a point about the silliness of the assault weapons bill. I have a clean record. I was making a political point. I only threatened them for a short time. I passed up other options to make my point. Should I get a pass as David Gregory did?
Or is the “break-the-law free” card only for Democrat VIPs?
It’s the VIP thing.
