From Out of Left Field

In a piece that's really all over the place, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd comes down against the "professional left" for attacking President Obama, but also against the President's Press Secretary Robert Gibbs for saying so. At least that what I think she means. You decide.

Anyway, I was struck most by this passage from her column:
The lefties came to the defense of the centrist Clinton during impeachment. Now that Obama is under attack, however, they are not coming to his defense, even though he has given more to the liberal cause than the scandal-stunted Clinton ultimately achieved.
Let me get this straight. The Left just might come back to President Obama's defense if he were to have "sexual relations" with an intern (Must it be an intern or will any woman other than Michelle do?) and then lie about it, both publicly and persistently?

Hmmm, I think that tells you all you need to know about the Left, professional or not.
