The Brothers Bennett
Rare is the day when both Bennett brothers are in trouble at the same time.Bill Bennett makes a mess of an otherwise valid point
in his radio show, suggesting (as some take it) that aborting more black babies would bring crime down, trying to make the point that such comparisons and linkages are easy to make but don't change the wrongness of abortion, yet he inadvertently associates blacks with crime in his extemporaneous analogy. Those offended are, of course, forgetting (if they even know) that Planned Parenthood's revered queen mother, Margaret Sanger, was herself a pro-genocidal racist.
And then there's Bob Bennett, esteemed top lawyer to Beltway Democrats, who so successfully protected Bill Clinton from scandal with an affidavit stated in the present tense. Orin Kerr at the Volokh Conspiracy wonders
why Bob Bennett let his client, Judith Miller, sit in jail for three months while the matter of Scooter Libby's sincerity is resolved, if that's really the whole story. It seems the widespread doubt is bipartisan.
I don't think they're indecent men. I am glad they're both private citizens and we won't have an extended media focus on either of them.
