Why Are All The Left-Wing Bloggers in Milwaukee Such Hypocrites?

Why are all the Left-wing ...such hypocrites?

Is this a trick question?

And I'm assuming that all the conservatives who trashed Bill Clinton for his affair will be equally as harsh on Jessica McBride then... otherwise they are just as much of a hypocrite... righte?

Hey Tom just for laughs, why don't you link to any one on the left who is calling for Flynn to resign, like the banshees on the right did when Clinton was president.

You see, you guys don't do scale and perspective very well. There is Joe Flynn the philander, and Joe Flynn the cop. We can separate these, even though adultery is still on the books in Wisconsin is a crime.

The story said they had an affair, not that they were doing the nasty, unBiblical things that Clinton's body parts did!

So then you believe that appropriate reaction from those who blogged about the Edwards affair would be...what?

Can we expect the usual defenders of marriage to flense these two? Pro'lly not, huh?

No, for the laughs I'll keep relying on your comments, Keith. Nobody does it better. Though sometimes I wish someone could. ;-)

Y'all never dealt with the issue of Clinton's perjury back then, and I see 10 years haven't made a bit of difference. Given the evidence, that's probably a smart move on your part.

Still not an impeachable offense Tom. You all screamed and yelled that SOMETHING had to be done to the point where the American people saw through the real reason for the hubbub.

Unfortunately with what the last administration got away with the bar has been raised so high to render the articles of impeachment null and void. Thank you Nancy Pelosi.

Perjury before Congress not an impeachable offense?!? Obstruction of justice not impeachable?!?

How pointless would it be to ask Keith to identify the US Code broken by the last administration? I've heard a lot about "illegal wars" and "illegal interrogations" and "illegal incarceration" but I've never heard a single citation of a law that was broken. Far as I can tell, anything a Republican does that a Democrat doesn't like is "illegal."

Got news for ya. Perjury and obstruction of justice are prohibited under Title 18 of the US Code. Thus, impeachable.

That being said, adultery is a felony under Wisconsin state law, so those who supported the impeachment of Clinton ought also to support criminal proceedings against Flynn & McBride; those who opposed the impeachment ought also to oppose criminal proceedings against Flynn & McBride.

Huh? What would adultery have to do with whether I supported the impeachment of Clinton (which I did)? I guess I'm missing the connection.

You're a reasonable person (I've seen your blog) and I don't think your support of Clinton's impeachment was simply because he's a Democrat. I think you supported impeachment because he broke the law.

Likewise, Flynn & McBride broke the law. While you may disagree with the law itself (I know I do), the people of Wisconsin have upheld the law, so like it or not it's set in stone.

We are a nation of laws, not of men, so we must punish our criminals based on the laws that the break, not on whether we like them or not. Nobody is above the law.

That being said, I hope the court is lenient...because it is a silly law. But then I don't live in Wisconsin, so I have a different perspective.

The "adultery is a crime" argument is the reddest of red herrings. Still, I'll let anybody who called for Milwaukee Democratic Mayor John Norquist's prosecution to make it.

Speaking of adultery, the lefties were silent on John "The Haircut" Edwards' affair (and subsequent bastard child) because he never was a family values advocate, meaning he did not commit that worst of all modern "crimes," hypocrisy.

Except, of course, that he did, as documented by Ann Coulter:

P.S.: My apologies to any left-handed people who are offended by my usurping the term "lefty" to refer to left-wingers.

Lying under oath? Perjury?

"Not an impeachable offense"?

You or I do it, we go to jail.

Sounds impeachable to me.

Actually, it appears as though you're missing substantial brain function. Have you had a neurologist check on that?

If "A" commits a crime, but should not be punished, then why should "B" be punished for a lesser crime?

"A" is Clinton. Fill in the rest.
