Democrat consultant Pat Caddell (right) shown here with President Jimmy Carter in 1977, called Tom Donilon the 'leaker-in-chief.' [White House Photograph]Imagine a Republican appointee going on numerous talk shows to repeat a fictional story about why U.S. property was attacked and Americans were killed in Libya. We all know what would happen if that Republican, instead of being penalized for falsehoods, earned a promotion, right?
