Didn't He Get Impeached for Lying?

I'll have some more thoughts on the whole Sestak matter later, but what really cracked me up this week was the revelation that none other than former President Bill Clinton was the one who allegedly made the maybe-a-job-maybe-an-advisory-position offer to Joe Sestak if he agreed not to run against Arlen Specter in the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary.  

I find it very odd that Sestak's original story that "the White House" offered him a "high level" "federal job" has now changed quite a bit in the past few days, so now the message is that Slick Willy wasn't really offering him a job, but just an unpaid advisory position and really not a big deal at all, which is why the White House finally released this information on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend.  Regardless, the White House counsel has assured us that no laws were broken, and nothing wrong was done, so we should all just move along now, nothing to see here... 

...anyone else reminded of this?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

Ann Coulter made a great point on Friday's Red Eye show, which if you're not watching, you should be.  (Seriously, it's the Daily Show with less liberals and more rock musicians.  Good times.  It's on FoxNews weekday nights at 3 a.m.  Set your DVR.)  
I think the issue is whether this actually was what was offered...if this is the way Bill Clinton says it happened, I'm sure it did, because he hasn't perjured himself under oath for at least a decade.
