I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Delay and the Double Standard

Tom Delay is gone from Congress before a trial. Yet on the other side of the isle the Democrats still harbor members with serious legal and ethical problems, some for decades. Most recently is the Cynthia McKinney scandal. Hitting a Police officer and misusing public funds would cause such an uproar in the press and within Congress that a Republican would be hounded from office, yet McKinney who wastes no time in calling everyone in sight a racist and claiming privileges that normal people would be embarrassed to rely on. But that's just today. Look at this list of compromised members of Congress who have enjoyed remaining in office despite their legal and ethical problems.

Joe Biden, Plagiarism
Leahy, Left the Intelligence committee because he was guilty of leaking classified information.
Pick a Clinton and pick the scandal.
Ted Kennedy, Kopechne

These are just the obvious that I can pull off the top of my head. I invite comments to add to the list. This is not to say that Republicans should enjoy the freedom from repercussions that the Democrats frequently do, but rather point out one of the manifold hypocritical practices of the left and their allies in the press.

I'm mellowing on Clinton just a tad. I mean if he had done the right thing and resigned instead of fighting the impeachement thing then AlGore would have been the incumbant President and given the closeness of the GWB first election ALGore would probably have won.... and been President on 9/11 and every day thereafter... which goes back to the old be careful what you wish for thing..... like if the impeachement had been succesful and then you would have had the same scenario.... Oh ick ick!

I think I've pretty well convinced myself we shoud all just throw ourselves down and beg for mercy we dont even come close to deserving.

Let us not fail to remember the honorable Senator from the Klan, Robert Byrd. Or Bahgdad Bob McDermott, the eavesdropper. Or the geriatric prodigy of bovine economics, Hillary Clinton.
