Conservatives of all strips have taken a god offal hit today with commutation of 'Scooter' Libby's sentence. Eight years ago, when the GOP & conservatives pushed for the impeachment of Pres. Clinton they took the position that it didn't matter one iota what he lied about, what mattered was that he lied under oath. In eight short years we see this simple idea disowned like a drunken uncle. What can we expect from a political party that is younger by several decades than the Democratic party calling itself the "Grand Old Party". Not much it would seem.
Please do not think that the GOP operatives will stop harping on the Lying of Clinton under oath, not for one minute. What will happen is that the 50% of the voting public that are fundamentally "independents" will no longer blindly except the proposition that conservatives in general, and the GOP in particular, are more ethical of the two parties. Some may even see how much the GOP has been taken over by the extreme Authoritarians of the conservative movement.
