Remember this epsiode?
White House officials yesterday released a list of damage they say was done by outgoing staffers of President Bill Clinton, including obscene graffiti in six offices, a 20-inch-wide presidential seal ripped off a wall, 10 sliced telephone lines and 100 inoperable computer keyboards.I expect that soon after Jan. 20, we will be hearing reports from the White House along the lines of: "a Roman toga party was held, from which we have received more than two dozen reports of individual acts of perversion so profound and disgusting that decorum prohibits listing them here."
For months, Democrats had questioned the administration's credibility because officials refused to document allegations of vandalism they made in the week after President Bush's inauguration. In April, the General Accounting Office said it was unable to confirm damage, in part because of what it called a "lack of records" from the White House.
Of course, the compliant media will report that this is reminiscent of charges made by the Bush adinistration against outgoing Clinton staffers, but not all of the reports will point out that those charges were bullshit. And, of course, Faux News will run with the "sour grapes" story for weeks (at least), without once mentioning that the Bushies' charges were false but that the Obama administration's charges are true.
Just sayin'. We'll see if I'm right, but I have a feeling about the Bushies.
