Party Of Government?

Occasionally we've mentioned the existence of the Party Of Government (and have taken a slight liberty, re-naming it the Party IN Government with the acronym P.I.G.)

It certainly works for Sandy Berger (D) National Security Adviser to X42, whose criminal activities at the National Archives were ignored by GWBush' Attorney-General's office.

Former national security adviser Sandy Berger removed classified documents from the National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported Wednesday.

The report was issued more than a year after Berger pleaded guilty and received a criminal sentence for removal of the documents.

The "sentence"? A $50K fine and 100 days' "community service."

Contrast to ...oh...stiffing the IRS...which usually means jail AND loss of every material possession one has...

Inspector General Paul Brachfeld reported that when Berger was confronted by Archives officials about the missing documents, he said it was possible he threw them in his office trash.

"In total, during this visit, he removed four documents ...

And we will NEVER know the contents of those documents.

The term "Clintoncide" comes to mind...
