Hitler's sister has intelectual honesty ? Is against double standards ? That IS a surprise! -- law

The Left had a field day over Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's remarks on NBC's Meet the Press this morning in which she downplayed possible perjury and obstruction of justice indictments this week in the Rove/Plame/Miller/Libby/God-knows-who-else leak case. I watched the rebroadcast of the show tonight and have to say that I found Hutchison's pooh-poohing more than a bit disturbing...

The New York Times, for what it's worth, reports that Sen. Hutchison's tactics are part of a coordinated GOP strategy to "blunt leak charges." If that is true (contrary to the unhinged Left, I'm not on the White House talking points e-mail list), I really object to that--and so should every other rule-of-law Republican. Perjury and obstruction of justice are serious crimes, whether committed by D's, R's, or otherwise. Period...

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison has some integrity problems of her own. Lately, she's been preoccupied with saving the one-of-a-kind American Airlines/DFW Airport monopoly in Dallas/Fort Worth via a crazy law known as the Wright Amendment.

Next week, her Senate Aviation Subcommittee is holding hearings on the law... which her own constituents overwhelmingly oppose.

She's fighting to keep the monopoly in place. Why? She benefits two ways:
1) Her own husband, Ray Hutchison, is one of DFW Airport/American Airlines' primary attorneys, raking in legal fees estimated in the millions.
2) Ray Hutchison's law firm, Vinson & Elkins, is the largest collective source of her re-election campaign contributions.

If DFW Airport is hurt, it looks like it will her own pocketbook and that of her re-election campaign.
