The right wing nuts try to blame liberals for EnronI find the attempt to blame Clinton for the moral deterioration of Enron particularly funny.

Why is Enron a problem for conservatives? Even if the Bush administration turns out to be squeaky clean, which we'll never know unless it starts to be more forthcoming, the scandal threatens perceptions that the right has spent decades creating.
