Does nobody remember the really rough treatment of George Bush-41’s pick for secretary of defense, ex-Texas senator John Tower, in 1989?
The Democrats have repeatedly set the rules of engagement over time. They should not be surprised that sometimes, this rises and bites them in the gluteus maximus.
I remember it. Fat Teddy sat there so pompously criticizing Tower for his drinking and womanizing. As far as the public record shows, Tower never got so drunk while out womanizing as to drive of a bridge and kill the object of his womanizing.
