At long last, the news media has reported a story that is long overdue and should have been reported years ago. That Lawrence Walsh, the vindictive special prosecutor of the Iran-Contra affair, no longer has a pot to use or a window to throw it out of.

Walsh and his cohorts have been nothing but a bunch of blood-sucking leeches on the pocketbook of the taxpayers. They have spent over $31 million and for what?The truth of the matter is that the Democrats have been vigorously trying to win in court what they couldn't at the ballot box. They claim that Nixon lied, that both Reagan and Bush lied, that North, Poindexter, Weinberger and a host of others lied to Congress.

Well, I would like them to name just one congressman who hasn't lied to the public. The news media does it every day. How about FDR lying about the start of World War II, Lyndon Johnson about the Vietnam War, Edward Kennedy about Chappaquiddick? Metzenbaum of Ohio should have been prosecuted right along with Republican George Hansen of Idaho, but no, Metzenbaum was a Democrat.

How about the behind-the-scenes arm twisting of Anita Hill by Kennedy and Metzenbaum in the Clarence Thomas hearings? Those two even held a straight face while denying they knew anything about it.
