All this sturm-n-drang about the CBS AWOL memos and all the attempts to refute them by talking about typefaces and proportional-spacing and superscripts puts me back in mind to the early months of 1998 and the increasingly bizarre contortions Clinton supporters went through in order to deny the simple fact that he lied about his relationship with Lewinsky. And I speak as someone who was an active participant in said attempts (I had my own personal theory for several months that Lewinsky's conversations with Tripp were all an elaborate fantasy world created by a star-crossed young girl).

There comes a time when reality intrudes on fantasy and you have to put the fantasy away. Perhaps now is the Lewinsky-moment for the Bush supporters.
