"By the way, Tobias had been running the Bush administration's global AIDS prevention program which emphasized abstinence, because there is nothing the administration can do that is not ironic."

Of course the slavishly loyal Sean Hannity is already excusing the scandal away, which tells me there are some Republicans involved. If it was the Clinton White House that was implicated in the scandal (like the Bushies have been), I would bet my car that he and FOX News would obsess about it for the next two years. But that's just stating the obvious.
