Let the Sandy Berger Jokes Commence!


One other piece of paper the former national security adviser--memorably and accurately described by Reason's own Tim Cavanaugh as a Gale Gordon manque--finally got around to returning.

As this Washington Post article makes clear, the Bergergate is in every sense an echo of the Clinton scandals: Stupid, petty, not fully provable, mostly irrelevant but a dark window into how power players act, and almost destined to die not from a bang but from a whimper. And, I should add, a good deal of fun, especially in its ability to generate all sorts of demeaning, if apocryphal, details.
