Gingrich ca. 1994: "Democrats bad! Must smear!"

From Crooks and Liars: Newt in ‘94 vowed to investigate Clinton for 2 years as his platform
C&L brings you this CBS/NBC report from 1994. Gingrich went nuts over Clinton and his new-found subpoena power, yet if Democrats want to hold hearings on oversight and Iraq war profiteering that's supposed to hurt them.
The beginning of the twelve years of filthy lies of the right. Gingrich was a disgusting, hateful, corrupt, shameless pig, and his lies inspired a generation of wingnut pundits and politicos with no morals to lower the bar until they had to dig long, narrow holes to place the bar in.

And yet Nancy Pelosi, the new Speaker of the House (and damn do I love saying the phrase, "Speaker Pelosi"), won't investigate Bush's crony circus. Most will call that a good idea, a way of not alienating moderates, the "high road", but we know for a fact that they wouldn't (hell, DIDN'T) do that if they had a chance. I say, investigate the Smirking Killer, impeach him, remove him from office, and send him on his way to notoriety.

We have the power now. It's time we use it.
