When little piggies fly, Bucko

Talk about chutzpah!  We take the House and some ass wipe from Pennsylvania thinks the way for Republicans to show their "bi-partisanship" is by disavowing the Clinton impeachment:

(The Hill)- On the day after Republicans reclaimed control of Congress, a Democratic lawmaker said he will introduce a measure that would “disavow” the impeachment of former President Clinton.

Rep. Chaka Fattah (Pa.) said that the resolution is necessary so that Democrats and Republicans can work together in a bipartisan fashion.

“As we enter a period in which bipartisanship will be a major priority for the Congress, it is vital that we disavow the most highly partisan example of the politics of personal destruction in the recent history of this House,” Fattah said in a statement.

The last time they were in power, House Republicans impeached Clinton for allegedly perjuring himself over his supposed affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton, only the second president in history to be impeached, was eventually acquitted at trial in the Senate.
First of all, strike the words "allegedly" and "supposed" from the paragraph above.  William Jefferson Clinton did indeed commit perjury by lying in a deposition in the Paula Jones case and he did, after some prodding, admit that he did indeed have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.  Facts is facts and history is history.  Neither can be changed by some ridiculous House resolution.  But the bigger question is why is Fattah looking back to 1998 instead of working towards solving the problems of 2010? 

If Fattah thinks that bi-partisanship consists of House members giving each other back rubs and big wet kisses he is in for one, big bumpy road.  Newsflash for Fattah:  we won.  Bi-partisanship is you working with us.  Get used to it.
