God knows a sleaze-addicted media and public had to wait long enough. This president is well over three years into his term, and, until this month, the man’s only brush with real scandal (as opposed to fevered conspiracy theories regarding his birth certificate and religion) involved the possible preferential treatment of a solar-cell manufacturer. I’m sorry, but it’s tough to gin up too much outrage over that, even in our outrage-happy political climate. Halfway through even the most basic debate over whether politics played a role in the Energy Department’s decision to award … zzzzzzzzz. I’m sorry. What were we talking about? Oh, yes. Solyyyynnndra. Hardly the stuff of which presidential “–gates” are made.
