Creeping Excuse-ism


In a previous post, I asked:

How long, you figure, before somebody in the GOP — probably Michele Bachmann — comes up with the following argument:  “No wonder we’ve had such a rash of infidelity among our politicians!  When President Clinton got away with it, everybody realized all the rules were off.”  GOP infidelities are Clinton’s fault.

As if on cue, Rush has taken the first step in that direction:

“This is almost like, ‘I don’t give a damn, the country’s going to Hell in a handbasket, I just want out of here,'” said Limbaugh. “He had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn’t want any part of it. He lost the battle. He said, ‘What the Hell. I mean, I’m — the federal government’s taking over — what the Hell, I want to enjoy life.'”

So, in under 24 hours, we’ve already gotten as far as blaming the Democrats for Sanford cheating on his wife.  Right now it’s Obama’s fault.  We should start a pool on when they’ll get to Clinton.

On a related note: just imagine how big a mess this country would be if conservatives weren’t standing up for personal responsibility.
