Robert Stacy McCain points out the all-too-familiar but nonetheless deeply depressing double-standard that is applied to the GOP by the MFM, to the point that simple, basic fundraising rises to the level of a scandal as the RINOs run for cover.
“Democrats can go to prison for corruption (Rep. William Jefferson of Louisiana) or be censured for ethics violations (Rep. Charlie Rangel of New York) and no reporter ever considers this a reflection on the Democratic Party in general. Yet every would-be Woodward and bush-league Bernstein knows in his heart that GOP politicians are all crooked, so that an army of intrepid investigative journalists stands eternally ready to pounce on the Pulitzer Prize to be won by exposing a Republican scandal. And while they wait for the next great “-Gate” to come along, they amuse themselves by making nefarious Nixonian mountains out of the routine molehills of politics.”
Go over there and read the whole thing. The new Congressmen are going to need balls of steel to stand up to this nonsense. Fortunately, some of them appear to have just that, and the new Speaker certainly does.
And speaking of the new Speaker, I just discovered that when I type “john boehner” into Google, Google helpfully recommends “john boehner affair” as its first search option.
Well isn’t that helpful? Can’t let a moment go to waste before demonizing the man for the sin of being Republican.
