Karl Rove vs. Sandy Berger

One can only assume that this report on Karl Rove will lead to an "unbiased media" feeding frenzy.

But remember a few months ago when former Clinton Administration National Security Advisor, and advisor to presidential candidate John Kerry, Sandy Berger got into a bit of mischief over some pilfered classified documents from the National Archives?
Mr. Berger plead guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on April 1 to stealing classified material from the National Archives, destroying three of the five stolen documents, and lying to federal investigators.

The Rules of Professional Conduct for an attorney in the District of Columbia prohibit a lawyer from committing a criminal act that reflects adversely on trustworthiness; engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, deceit or misrepresentation; and acting in a manner that seriously interferes with the administration of justice.

The stolen documents were copies of highly secret memorandum (possibly with handwritten notes) that were allegedly critical of the Clinton administration’s response to the “Millennium 2000” terror plot to bomb the Los Angeles International Airport.
He was given a pass. I remember Clinton chuckling over what a absent-minded rascal Sandy Berger was. He didn't mean to abscond with the documents, he just forgot to take them out of his shirt (but not his socks) and return them. It coulda happened to anyone. And the destruction of three of them was, I'm sure, some sort of accident that is quite humorous in retrospect.

So, that said, will Karl Rove be given the same benefit of the doubt that Mr. Berger was given? Or after all these years of being hunted and hounded by the left, will they attempt to go for Rove's throat, whether or not there's any justification?

We already know the answer to that, don't we.
