SWNID Inspires Cohen; Hence, SWNID Agrees with Cohen

SWNID has previously disparaged the judgment and opinions of WaPo columnist Richard Cohen. Today we give him props for his rightminded complaint that special prosecutors are making a mockery of our justice system.

Specifically, he argues that Monica Goodling, an assistant to AG Gonzales, has taken the fifth regarding testimony before a Senate committee precisely because the atmosphere of suspicion created by the specter of special prosecutors means that anyone in Washington who makes any statement under oath is asking for a perjury trial. That's a brilliant point.

But where have we heard it before?

Oh, yes. SWNID said it about two weeks ago.

We congratulate Cohen on his discovery of a source for improved ideas for his column. Mr. Cohen, we are honored to be your muse.

I'm wondering if SWNID intentionally borrows his "you heard it here first/I told you so" rhetoric from a certain overly confident conservative radio personality, or if such language is what students often call "unintentional plagarism."

Whatever the similarities or distinctions between the two might be, it is comforting to be in the hands of one who is truly so Seldomly Wrong, making sures his readers are in fact Never in Doubt.

Any resemblance between this blogger and the stentorian radio personality are purely coincidence.
