DOUBLE STANDARDS
Am I the only one who thinks it's kind of funny the way the Left and the Right reacts when a book comes out that attacks their respected beloved leader? Former FBI director Louis Freeh is writing a book, My FBI, that he says will expose the real Clinton. The Left are bashing it and the Right are embracing it. And here's where the double standard comes in. When Paul O'Neill wrote his book, The Price of Loyalty it was the other way around. The Right bashed it, including me, and the Left embraced it. Then we have all our pundits going on every news program saying how hypocritical it is for the other side to bash this book while embracing the other. Don't you just love politics?

But then you're ironically following the exact same double standard that you highlight.

That's why I put "including me".

Yes, I did see that. You only put it on one of the two books though...

However, it's interesting that you're bringing out this double-sided double standard. Any particular reason?
