Honest & Forthcoming?

Oh, gosh, Paul Wolfowitz is 'sorry' for helping his girlfriend get a high-paying job at the World Bank.

The World Bank Group Staff Association is asking that Wolfowitz step down, as his actions call into question his integrity.

Well, duh. Did you honestly think a man who helped push the War in Iraq onto the plates of America's soldiers was a paragon of virtue? Frankly, folks, you got what you paid for.

And honesty seems to be in short supply around the White House of late.

Already drawing criticism for their use of an RNC-operated e-mail server to circumvent federal law on record-keeping, the White House now says it has lost critical e-mails that may pertain to the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys.

Not one or two, not a dozen, not a hundred � but over five million e-mails.

"We're being very honest and forthcoming," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.

Which is why y'all were trying to skirt the law in the first place, no doubt.

The marketplace may be safe (give or take a hundred soldiers and five gunships), but the Green Zone apparently isn't.

A suicide bomber struck, killing eight members of the Iraqi Parliament as they sat in a cafeteria.

A brief word about the firing of Don Imus.

Standards need to apply to everyone in equal measure. If Imus' words are unacceptable at the level of broadcast, then that determination must apply to both conservative and liberal voices. You don't get a free pass because your cause is noble and just, or because you're fighting the good fight.

So while liberals may be salivating about the possibility of a long queue of conservative media personalities being given their pink slips for their words, they'd better keep in mind that the microphone does not take sides.
