    the getting caught part doesn't happen often enough, but it does happen. When it does, if the culprit is a Republican, we always hear that keening whine about how it's not fair for the poor, poor Republicans, and the silly refrain that Democrats get away with the same thing.

    I can't think of any such weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth from the Democrats, but it makes sense that they would do the same thing.

    Can anyone think of examples of moaning and wailing from Democrats about being "held to a higher standard?"
    This has absolutely nothing to do with partisan politics and everything to do with reality and observation...

    It's downright wrong that democrats get a free pass when a democrat gets caught (buried at the bottom of page 40 in the paper mentioned as a mere blurb not even mentioning party affiliation) while every time a republican gets busted for something stupid it's front page (some times even the headline) not to mention the party affiliation his in the headline itself.

    This is why democrats are ignorant to their parties own dirty laundry, and why democrats believe their party is morally and ethically more superior.

    As a libertarian I think both parties screw up, however democrats screw up way more but the MSM helps them out by keeping the public ignorant to that fact and it chaps my ass.

    Where did I say that?

    Why do you hate America and its system of government so much? Is this a tea party school yard thing?

    The progressive media controls everything you think you know. That is why you champion crap like the fairness doctrine.

    If the "progressive media" had that kind of control, how would the fairness doctrine benefit them?

    I don't think Democrats screw up more or that they're not held accountable. I remember Anthony Weiner was pretty front page and I don't remember very many people, liberals included, defending him. Oh there were some that did what you're doing now. It was deflection then and you're deflecting now.

    Well how the hell can the media bury a censure?

    I'm talking about House and Senate members (both state and federal) getting popped for simple crimes, DUI, disorderly conduct, assault etc..

    If a republican gets a DUI its sensationalized and is front page news. If a democrat gets a DUI its buried. Sure both are reported but one (like I said) is sensationalized and the other is just a blurb.

    Again another example of when a story cannot be buried. You cant bury the Weiner story. He was only married with a kid and he was flashing his dong all over the internet.

    Because "fair" to the progressive is no alternative news or ideas to their own.

    Fair to them is ban Fox News and clone MSNBC while banning conservative talk radio.

    Re: Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Having taught 4th. grade for a number of years, I'm quite familiar with the "You're picking on me because I'm (a boy, a girl, Hispanic, white, red headed, whatever) argument. The "Republicans get held to a higher standard! keening wail is the same thing, and about the same level of childishness.

    and a 351's post pretty much blew that childish, silly, unsupported refrain out of the water, didn't it?
