Ted Rall for December 26, 1998
Man 1: The bar for impeachment has been lowered soon it will become routine to downsize presidents for mere perjury and obstruction of justice! Woman: That's terrible! Only Boy Scouts will be able to become politicians! Man 2: Liars and manipulators will never run for public office! Man 3: Think of all the petty criminals whose talents our country will lose! Man 4: I don't know if I'd want to live in a country that requires honesty from it's leaders... Man 5: It's a slippery slope, all right- the next thing you know, our presidents will have to demonstrate integrity! Man 6: Kill me now, oh Lord! Man 7: All the saints are going to the private sector! Man 8: Hell, it's all been downhill since caligula.
