Smoking gun or steaming

Smoking gun or steaming pile?

Some Democrats seem disappointed that no one has yet found the first. But the Enron scandal and its consequences for the Bush presidency seems much more like the second. Sometimes what makes a scandal truly damaging isn’t this or that particular thing you did wrong as being in close proximity to something really nasty and unpleasant. And President Bush and his top brass look like they’re closed off in the Oval Office with … well, something really nasty and unpleasant.

Some Republicans are beginning to realize this.

Give it time. Give it time.
