The unforgiving minute: In fairness to Mr. Williams

While he did tell what Huckleberry Finn called "a stretcher" regarding his time in Iraq in 2003, Brian Williams was a piker compared to the top eight members of the Bush Administration during the same time.

One wonders if any of them -- Dubya, Cheney, Condi, Rummy, or the rest -- considered taking themselves off the air for a few days.

One doubts it. One doubts it very seriously.

Williams only egged on, and surfed on, their crimes. He's a sad case -- albeit a sad case with magnificent hair -- but he's not the one who belongs in a cell in The Hague.
