If one were to judge by the turgid vitriol spewing from liberal Democrats and the mainstream media regarding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christies’s connection (if any) to the George Washington Bridge incident, one might infer these groups think the world is ending (“N.J. Democrat: Christie’s ‘Bridgegate’ just ‘tip of the cover-up,’” Web, Jan. 10). According to them, this “scandal” must be investigated immediately, all resources brought to bear and no stone left unturned. Funny how the same cabal has been so ataraxic regarding, for example, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS opprobrium, the lie that is Obamacare, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s politically motivated positions and numerous other actual scandals. Their usual poison of sophistic indignation coupled with flagrant, left-wing hypocrisy forms an unremitting disease that, unfortunately, has no known antidote.
