  • Thanks for the list. I found more names on links from Kos. Is there a grand, referenced master list anywhere? Think we could buy a huge ad in papers around the country to point out these Repubs hypocrisies?

    Oh, and don't forget Katrina Heung, a powerful Republican donor and party activist, having affairs with two FBI agents, while at the same time acting as a double agent, on the FBI payroll and providing classified information to the Chinese. And another Republican traitor, Robert Hansen, was a conservative Christian pervert and convicted spy. Great Republican values.

    Let's round all these up on one well referenced site, eh?

  • There is no "master list" other than what is here, so if folks want to post to add more (providing links to source docs would be nice too), please do so. We want to get it up in some sort of database form so people can add to it that way.

  • Sure, you could buy a huge ad.

    Then, the next day, you would see reprinted every single quote of Democrats made during the Clinton impeachment about how commenting on peoples' sex life was wrong, it was OK for Clinton to be a hypocrite, and how they would never do such a thing as to air peoples' dirty laundry in public.

    Chalk up yet another Democratic Party flip-flop.

  • Jeff,

    I wasn't blogging back during the days of Monica, but anyone who knew me back then knows I didn't give Clinton a break on that whole debacle. On this topic, I am consistent. I don't like hypocrisy on either side of the aisle. The Right deserves even more grief because they are so publicly sanctimonious and judgmental about others in this vein. They try to corner the market on "values" when they have, at best, a tenuous grasp of morals when it comes to their own behavior.

    By Pam, at 2:17 PM  
  • As my father always puts it, Pam, exposing a hypocrite is ridiculously redundant -- they do it themselves. Moreover, you can't argue against someone for doing something, then do it yourself -- I think that falls under the "he hit me first" fallacy.

    You want the electorate to stop being obsessed with sex scandals? Quit bringing them up yourself.

    By North Dallas Thirty, at 6:39 PM  
  • S'OK, Jeff. Agree to disagree on this one, as usual. :)

    By Pam, at 6:45 PM  
  • Jeff, your observation is spot-on! I remember well those halcyon days of the Clinton Administration. Hardly a day went by when Clinton or members of his administration were lecturing all of us on morality. They were always telling us what the right kind of marriage was, demonizing gay people, and using "moral values" as a political wedge. It was a non-stop sanctimoniousapalooza!

    (Whoops! I forgot to turn off the SNARK LOCK key as I typed that...)
