Forty years ago, the Congressional investigation of the Watergate scandal began to be broadcast on TV. I didn’t expect to see that bit of history repeat itself, but it looks like it just did. Besides the Benghazi fiasco heating up, for the first time since last year’s election, two new scandals emerged: news that the IRS gave special scrutiny to conservative organizations, and the discovery that the Justice Department had been bugging twenty phone numbers belonging to the Associated Press.
You know President Obama is in trouble because comedians didn’t want to make too many jokes about him in the past, but he’s fair game for them now.

He pointed out that this is a milestone for Democrats; this is the first time they had to deal with three scandals at the same time, and none of them involved sex! Leno also predicted that FOX News is going to change its slogan, from “Fair and Balanced” to “See, I Told You So.”
