High Broderism

Washington Post columnist David Broder, Dean of the Washington Press Corps and high priest of High Broderism, warns President Obama not to give in to those awful vengeful people who want to investigate, perhaps prosecute, and possibly even punish the Bushies who made torture (or "torture" as Broder puts it) national policy. Bear in mind this is the same David Broder who called on President Clinton to resign and cheered on Republicans intent on impeaching him because said President Clinton had a quickie with an intern.

Now, if I were a cynical person, I might think that David Broder was nothing more than a worthless partisan hack who was willing to excuse any misconduct as long as it was committed by Republicans. However, I am a stranger to cynicism, so I'll just assume that Broder is actually a moral cripple who genuinely believes that sex is more deserving of punishment than torture.
