For years now, the GOP, in concert with the corporate media have engaged in institutionalized hypocrisy, a double standard where what's wrong for Democrats is perfectly fine for Republicans. One example of this is all the hoopla made over the John Edwards affair, and the numerous affairs of Bill Clinton, while giving Republican adulterers like John McCain, Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani a free pass. And this from the supposed "party of family values". But sometimes, in their rush to ridicule, they often will trip over themselves.
Another example of this is the derisive comments from the GOP concerning the back drop for Obama's acceptance speech, which has attracted all kinds of negative comments from the Republican party. What they don't tell you is that George W Bush used a similar backdrop for his 2004 acceptance speech. I guess it's OK for Bush to use one, he was a frat boy at one of the most exclusive colleges in the US (but that doesn't make him an elitist), and them frat boys are steeped in Greek culture. And so, with out a whiff of irony, the same shitheads that supported Bush in 2004 are now criticizing Obama. I guess the idle rich have nothing better to do.
Oh yeah, it's only a matter of time before McCain reminds us that for five and a half years, he didn't have any columns.
