Down the Memory Hole

On the “Today” show, a friend of John Edwards talked about Edwards’ admission that he fathered his mistress’ child. According to the Washington Post: "Today" reported that Edwards did not come on the show himself because of the ongoing federal investigation into whether he used campaign money to cover up the affair. 

Wait a minute. The feds are going after Edwards because they think he might have used campaign money to hide his mistress? What happened to priorities?

Remember when Attorney General Eric Holder was poised to investigate the truly heinous crimes of the Bush administration? Once upon a time, Holder was going to hold W and his minions accountable. That story turned into just another piece of media flotsam that got flushed down the memory hole.

So, the Justice Department lacks resources to pursue torturers, but finds time to investigate misuse of campaign funds?  Change we can believe in?
