Imagine the response from Republicans—and reporters—if Bill Clinton had been responsible for one of those things, much less all of them. - - Anna Quindlen, in Newsweek.

President Bill Clinton was impeached by a Republican-controlled Congress for lying about sex. President George W. Bush and aides lied the United States into a stupid, unnecessary colonial war that has so far killed more than 305 Americans and seriously wounded more than 1,400. It has also cost many thousands of Iraqi dead, and $1 billion US weekly.

Lying about sex is an impeachable offence; lying the nation into war apparently is not. - - Eric Margolis, in the Toronto Sun
