Here is a new and foolproof way to use the latest PC double standard to slide out of any responsibility for anything.
Who says we don’t get anything useful out of congressional hearings?
This past week when J. Edgar Hoover understudy, James Comey decided to drop by Capital Hill for a fun day of madcap banter and torturing the US Constitution, we all got an unexpected bonus of a wonderfully weaselly way to dodge any responsibility for any legal missteps we might make.
Just use the Huma Abedin defense that head Fed cop Comey blandly threw out to congress to explain away the former Hillary aide and wife of the famous Weiner pervert who forwarded him thousands of classified emails… “With respect to Ms. Abedin, in particular, we didn’t have any indication that she had a sense what she was doing was in violation of the law.”
Well, isn't that special.
And what a gift for you and me folks.
Just think... the next time you get pulled over for speeding or running that stoplight. “But officer... I didn’t have a sense that light was red, or that I was doing 60 in a 25 zone.”
And of course, our friendly neighborhood cops, taking their cue from the nation's top cop, will simply tip their hats and say, “ Well then, that’s all right. Hey if it’s good enough for our boss then obviously everyone gets a pass too”...
Ah - right. So, could you please see how this brilliant new excuse goes down and let me know what happens - I mean after the cops get through howling with laughter and throwing you in jail.
What do you think … would the new “Huma Defense” work for us, or is it like most of the time when the law works differently for us than for the privileged and connected?
