Unlearned lessons of Watergate

I missed the 40 year anniversary yesterday but Charlie has it covered. He's right. We didn't learn the lessons of Watergate. Memories fade. Vigilance wanes. So then we had Iran-Contra.

We didn't learn the lessons of Iran-Contra either. Half the criminals of that unpunished exercise in deceit and corruption resurfaced again as Czars in Bush the Younger's administration. The Very Important Punditry never mentioned the connection. So awkward and impolite to speak of the peccadilloes of the past.

History repeats itself. [Mandatory soundtrack from Natural Born Killers.]
