Why Republicans and Not Democrats?

As I read about this Sanford affair, I am amused by comments from Republicans. They immediately cry "leave him alone!" and "what about Clinton?" Well...what about Clinton? The Republicans tried to crucify him and pressure him out of office. Mr. Sanford was one of the leaders of that group in the House. Mr. Gingrich was another. Gingrich was having one of his many affairs at the same time. Now Mr. Sanford has done the same and gone to great lengths to lie about it, even up to the last minute. It even seemed that he was looking for a way out at his press conference, as he kept stalling and stalling.

So, why do we Democrats go after these holier than thou Republicans? Simply because the Republicans are so quick to condemn and to place themselves at the right hand of God. They talk morality as Gingrich and Sanford and so many others have done. They talk about family values and the sanctity of marriage. Yet, they are secret offenders, hiding their immoral activities, while condemning others. They are the worst of the worst.

"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."

So, it is better to have no morals and then have no one criticize than to have morals, but break them. That calls for perfection and would give you nothing to blog about. Does that make you feel holier to blog about peoples blunders?

You really need to work on your reading comprehension. I cannot find a single place where I wrote anything about it being better to have no morals. What I said was, if you are going to condemn someone, don't be doing it yourself. These guys haven't blundered. They have intentionally cheated on their spouses. The Republicans in SC are calling for Sanford's head, something they don't normally do, but then they didn't like him to begin with.
