CNN Dismisses Bill Clinton's Political Gaffes While Highlighting Mostly Republicans

January 17th, 2006 7:34 PM

Earlier today on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, contributing correspondent Bruce Morton hosted a  list of "political  gaffes." Noticeably missing from the list was former President Clinton and VP Al Gore, as well as Al Sharpton and a long list of other Democrats.

While CNN set up the piece with the latest outlandish comments from Hillary Clinton and Mayor Nagin, I do find it telling that they picked on Pat Robertson while they had only a millisecond of the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Highlighted gaffes included: Republican Trent Lott on Thurmond, Bush Sr. - No New Taxes, Rev.  Pat Robertson, Jesse Jackson calling Jews hymies, former VP Dan Quayle on Murphy Brown, and James Watt, former Secretary of Interior under Reagan.

I seem to recall one extremely famous quote from former President Clinton where he said, "I did not have sex with that woman..."  Watch the video here.

And we could easily find a number of other egregious comments Dems have made with a simple click of the mouse.  Do you suppose CNN has gone out of their way to highlight the few Republican gaffes to distract the viewers from the outrageous and unbelievable racist and inappropriate comments made recently by the left, including Nagin, Kerry, and Gore.
