    That would be ... a strawman.

    I never claimed any elected officials were 100% in agreement with their party, voters, and claims.

    Further, not being in agreement with your constituents is not the definition of hypocrisy.

    Other than that .... wait, there is nothing other than that.

    Re: GOP Lawmaker's Graphic Sex-Bragging Caught On Tape

    It's time for me to break out my tried and true argument in cases like this: I don't think the personal lives of politicians is any of our business. I think that the more they have to live under a microscope, the less likely we are going to get good people to run for public office. If that is "displaying my hypocrisy", so be it.

    In this instance the woman,
    Heidi DeJong Barsuglia, is a lobbyist for an energy company, Sempra Energy, and Duvall is vice chair of the Committee on Utilities & Commerce.

    So there is some clear and obvious conflict of interest when a legislator is actually in bed with a lobbyist.
    I may be wrong.

    True enough, I was referring to the whole [insert legislator] slept with who arguments in general. Should've been more clear

    You claimed he was a hypocrite because of his stance on family values.

    "First of all, hypocrisy of any kind is a massively appropriate target."

    Did you not write that? What hypocrisy where you targeting if not his stance on family values?

    Further, not being in agreement with your constituents is not the definition of hypocrisy.
    no, but running on a platform claiming to do things that you don't believe in yourself is.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    The most shocking part of this article was there was a republican from California in office.
    Thank you

    You need to pay attention. My very next sentence said my post contained none of those charges.


    Second, you're getting closer to a definition of hypocrisy, which btw has nothing in common with what you posted first.

    And, if this guy campaigned on a family values campaign, then he deserves every drip and bit of charges of hypocrisy. EVERY BIT.


    Frankly, I think it would be hard to find an elected republican NOT ripe for charges of hypocrisy if caught in an affair (never mind two). Modern republicanism rests on family values and traditional marriage almost exclusively. It is one of the three legs to the stool of the Reagan coalition, as we are told again and again and again.

    When Republicans (generally) quit telling everyone else what a 'family' properly is, then they will quit being charged with hypocrisy when caught sticking their weenies in a non-spousal orifice.
