Thanks to Matt Ashby over at Stark Truth for the idea for this post. In my post yesterday about sour puss Kerry making a racist statement and barely being taken to task for it, Matt re-posted it on Stark Truth and made the comment "Republicans are held to a higher standard". I don't believe it's so much a higher standard as it is a double standard. Like he said, Democrats get away with anything. Trent Lott was giving praise to a 100 year old man and was called every name in the book for his comments and was pressured into stepping down, yet Kerry isn't. Why? Why is it okay for Robert Byrd have once been a member of the KKK, but not David Duke. I think both should be beaten within an inch of their lives by the way. "Bubba" Clinton is held as the greatest president of all time to the Dems even though he habitually cheats on his wife, yet Arnold is demonized for groping. Again, I don't agree with either action. A conservative says something about blacks, gays, Jews, Mexicans or Asians and he's a racist, homophobe or gay basher. A Dem says the same thing and it was taken out of context. What I think it may be is that we Republicans talk so much about values and morality, that when one Republican does something dumb it reflects on all of us. Dems see the Rush Limbaughs and Pat Robertsons talking about living a moral and decent life and think that's the way we all live. So when one does something and screws up, in their eyes, we all did it. I've never claimed to live a decent life. I've done things that I'm not proud of, things I wish I could change. So don't think because the powerful Republicans talks about decency and morality, that we all live by their words.
