The Day Democrats Stopped Protesting the War
(i.e. Inauguration Day)

As Gomer Pyle used to say, sur-prise, sur-prise.


My take on political hypocrisy is that it's generally more common on the liberal side of the aisle not because of any inherent conservative goodness but simply because the lame stream media is much more tolerant of liberal hypocrisy.

This all reminds me of how the problem of homelessness, a great "scandal" during the Reagan years, was magically dropped as a media fixation the day Clinton was elected. To use a film analogy, with politics it's always Groundhog Day.

Not bad, TS.

Thanks Bill. Read from Isaiah the other day the line from Scripture, "I am doing something new!" That is something we don't much see in politics.

Where are the stats from? I want to keep this arrow in my quiver.

Just hit the link under the words "surprise, surprise" and then that First Things link should reference the original research...
