Hearing voices

Biggest difference?  One of them had enough class to resign.

I can't do better than Jim Geraghty on this week's news:
When there is evidence of scandalous or bizarre behavior on the part of a political figure, and no reasonable explanation is revealed within 24 to 48 hours, then the truth is probably as bad as everyone suspects. 
Nobody withholds exculpatory information.  Nobody who's been accused of something wrong waits for "just the right moment" to unveil information that proves the charge baseless.  Political figures never choose to deliberately let themselves twist in the wind.  It's not the instinctive psychological reaction to being falsely accused, it's not what any public communications professional would recommend, and to use one of our president's favorite justifications, it's just common sense.
As someone else said recently,
Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems.  Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works.  They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner.  You should reject these voices.
I should reject something, that's for sure.

No reasonable explanation revealed? Why should they? They'll just run out the clock like they usually do.

When was the last time you heard anything about Fast & Furious?

Someone recently quoted the Clinton Rules: "It's not true, it's not true, it's not true, it's old news."

On those voices in his head, I'd like to know if there's room for one more....

One of them wasn't corrupt and was actually fighting the Left.
