    Bad day for Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.). Her husband,Thomas Athans, cofounder of a liberal talk radio network, is cooperating with police in an Internet-based prostitution bust at hotels in Troy, Mich., according to the Detroit Free Press.

    According to the paper, Athans told police he "paid a prostitute $150 for sex at a Troy hotel in late February." The story notes that Athans, 46, was not arrested or charged.

    "Subject: Jan 20th, 2009

    1. Outgoing President George W. Bush quietly boards his helicopter and leaves for Texas, commenting only: "Today is not about me. Today is a historical day for our nation and people."

    Eight years ago yesterday:

    1. Outgoing President Bill Clinton schedules two separate radio addresses to the nation, and organizes a public farewell speech/ rally in downtown Washington D.C. scheduled to directly conflict with incoming President Bush's inauguration ceremony.

    Yesterday:

    2. President Bush leaves office without issuing a single Presidential pardon, only granting a commutation of sentence to two former border patrol agents convicted of shooting a convicted drug smuggler. He does not grant any type of clemency to Scooter Libby or any other former political aide, ally, or business partner.

    Eight years ago yesterday:

    2. President Clinton issues 140 pardons and several commutations of sentence on his final day in office. Included in these are: billionaire financier, convicted tax evader, and leading Democratic campaign contributor Marc Rich; Whitewater scandal figure Susan McDougal; Congressional Post Office Scandal figure and former Democratic Congressman Dan Rostenkowski; convicted bank fraud, sexual assault and child porn perpetrator and former Democratic Congressman Melvin Reynolds; and convicted drug felon Roger Clinton, the President's half-brother.

    Yesterday:

    3. The Bush daughters leave gift baskets in the White House bedrooms for the Obama daughters, containing flowers, candy, stuffed animals, DVD's and CD's, and heartfelt notes of encouragement and advice for the young girls on how to prepare for their new lives in the White House.

    Eight years ago Yesterday:

    3. Clinton and Gore staffers rip computer wires and electrical outlets from the White House walls, stuff piles of notebook papers into the White House toilets, systematically remove the letter "W" from every computer key-pad in the entire White House, and damage several thousand dollars worth of furniture in the White House master bedroom.

    Headlines On This Date 4 Years Ago:

    "Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees"

    "Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times"

    "Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft"

    Headlines Today:

    "Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $170 million"

    "Obama Spends $170 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party"

    "Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate"

    "Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration"

    --And we're still dealing with the Clintons!!! "

    I thought it was particularly charming that the Hildebeeste had to have White House china for herself.

    Since the deed occurred ten months ago, it's unlikely to receive much media attention now. However, the likelihood of the media taking notice today is probably about the same as it was last April... that is, pretty much no chance.

    What little coverage the incident did receive indicated Mr. Athans' activities with the pay for play business lady was similar to what Slick Willie and Monica were doing - not the cigar part, the other part.

    Maybe the media mostly ignored story because according to the definition popularized by Slick Willie and widely accepted by liberal Dems at the time, Mr. Athans could claim, "I did not have sex with that woman".

    Prior to this morning, I'd never heard of Athans. Turns out he has a long history as a big dog in liberal talk radio including service as V.P. of new program development at Air America. Of course, 'long history' is a relative term since none of his ventures have ever drawn a sufficient audience to remain on the air longer than a few weeks or so.

    Perhaps if Air America spent as much time huffing and puffing (pun intended) about Mr. Athan's and the Slickster's "oral" activities as they did about Republican's sex lives, maybe it could draw an audience. As it is, even the libs won't listen to that crap.
