Michelle Malkin writes about the double standard in today's column:<quoted text>
Being blunt, like honesty, is always the best policy.
First we had Bill "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton, then we had John "I did not cheat on my wife fighting cancer" Edwards, then we had Anthony "see my weener" Weiner, then we had Barney "my apartment is used for prostitution" Frank and now we have Robert "hateful rightwing blogs" Menendez.
But the Cheerleaders couldn't report enough news stories and articles about a Republican toe tapping in a bathroom stall.
We're going to hear the same crickets we heard when Clinton was getting BJs in the Oval Office, Edwards was paying his mistress and love child on the side with taxpayer money, Weiner was showing off his private parts and Frank doing what Frank likes to do as we are with Menendez.
The same crickets we heard when the Federal Election Commission imposed $719,000 in fines against participants in the 1996 Democratic Party fundraising scandals involving contributions from China, Korea and other foreign sources.
But whatever you do...never, never, NEVER tap your foot in a bathroom stall.
Was that blunt and honest enough?
So far, the magical “D” after Sen. Sleaze-Bob’s name has conferred supernatural immunity upon him. New Jersey Democrats are AWOL. Liberal columnists for the nation’s fishwraps of record remain uninterested. David Letterman was too busy trading fat jokes with donut-munching Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stubbornly clung to his assertion this week that Menendez “did nothing wrong.”
But the mountains of Things Menendez Should Have Known But Conveniently Overlooked and Things Menendez Should Have Done But Conveniently Forgot just keep growing. My invitation to Democratic women on Capitol Hill to join Ladies Against Sen. Sleaze-Bob still stands. Guess it must have fallen through the cracks
