Compare and Contrast
We just had the chief of staff to arguably the second most powerful man on earth convicted of a felony, lying about the outing of a covert CIA agent during a time of "war".

Want to take a bet on how long it takes for this story to kick that story off the radar?
Obama attended Harvard Law School from 1988 to 1991. During his time at Harvard, Obama lived at 365 Broadway in Somerville, according to his parking tickets. Records from the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation office show that between Oct. 5, 1988 and Jan. 12, 1990 Obama was cited for 17 traffic violations, sometimes committing two in the same day. The abuses included parking in a resident permit area, parking in a bus stop and failing to pay the meter. Twelve of Obama’s 17 tickets were given to him on Massachusetts Avenue.
Oh my. Get my smelling salts. Parking tickets! Oh my.

Boy, that's some intense investigative reporting going on there. But watch right wingers say things like "it's indicative of his character" and "he obviously shows no respect for the law" and other such nonsense.

You watch.
