Sockgate

The first time as tragedy, the second time as farce:
Law enforcement sources said archive staff told FBI agents they saw Berger placing items in his jacket and pants, and one archive staffer told agents that Berger also placed something in his socks.

That allegation drew sharp responses from two of Berger's associates. President Clinton's former spokesman, Joe Lockhart, said Berger "categorically denies that he ever took documents and stuffed them in his socks.

"That is absurd," said Lockhart, who is now advising Berger. "And anyone who says that is interested in something other than the truth."

Former Clinton aide Lanny Davis challenged any unnamed official who accuses Berger of stuffing documents into his socks to come forward and level that charge publicly.

"I suggest that person is lying," he said. "And if that person has the guts, let's see who it is who made the comment that Sandy Berger stuffed something into his socks."

So a former National Security Advisor stuffing classified documents into his jacket and pants, taking them home, and losing them, is okay, but to put them in his socks is beyond the pale?

Thank you, CNN.

1 It is a horrible breack of subversive politics propriety to use one's socks in such a manner. Merely suggesting that Sandy put items into his socks is akin to reaching into his pants and giving his short hairs a twist.
