She was against perjury before she was for it

The Washington Post, of all places, responds to recent BS from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Numbskull) by comparing her words from Sunday with comments she made about the Clinton impeachment back in 1999.

I certainly hope that if there is going to be an indictment . . . that it is an indictment on a crime and not some perjury technicality...

I do think . . . that something needs to be said that is a clear message that our rule of law is intact and the standards for perjury and obstruction of justice are not gray. And I think it is most important that we make that statement and that it be on the record for history.

I very much worry that with the evidence that we have seen that grand juries across America are going to start asking questions about what is obstruction of justice, what is perjury. And I don't want there to be any lessening of the standard. Because our system of criminal justice depends on people telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
