Christmas Cards vs Abu Ghraib

In today's Inky, Dick Polman's article, "Republican Congress starting to stir out of oversight slumber," includes this paragraph:

Another telling statistic was reported late last year by the Boston Globe. Citing House records, it found that, in the mid-'90s, the GOP Congress took 140 hours of testimony on whether Clinton used his Christmas card list to find potential campaign donors. By contrast, in 2004 and 2005, House Republicans took 12 hours of testimony about the prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib.

Something definitely out of whack there.
