The DOJ Scandal

THE DOJ SCANDAL….While I was at lunch it occurred to me that I hadn’t checked in at The Corner to see what they thought about the Justice Department’s affirmative action program for young conservatives, so I headed over there after I got back. Nothing. So then I checked Google Blog and Memeorandum. Nothing again from conservative sites. As near as I can tell, the story has been officially blacked out in the right-wing blogosphere.

There’s nothing all that surprising about this. Liberals prefer to spend their time documenting conservative embarrassments and conservatives prefer to spend their time documenting liberal embarrassments. Still, this appears to be one scandal that no one on the right is even making an effort to defend. I was at least hoping to find something humorous enough to get a mocking blog post out of.

How about TV? Anybody watching Fox today? Have their talking heads weighed in on this?
