Newsbusters' Kyle Drennen:

In addition to wondering about the fate of the party nationally, Schieffer also asked about Sanford's political future: "Should he also resign as the governor of South Carolina?...This seems to go beyond just the fact that, you know, he became involved in this relationship. He was basically missing in action for five days... Isn't this more than just a sex scandal here? I mean, this is dereliction of duty, isn't it?"

It's interesting that Schieffer never leveled such a charge against Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Uh ... maybe that's because Clinton never skipped town, ditching his security detail and lying to aides about where he was going and leaving the Vice President unable to reach him and the nation essentially without a president for five days?

Seriously, Drennen is complaining - sorry; he finds it "interesting" -- that Schieffer never accused Clinton of being "missing in action for five days"? No, it isn't "interesting." Shieffer never accused Clinton of being "missing in action for five days" because Clinton was never missing in action for five days.

What is wrong with these people?
