It must be nice to be a Democrat
Just think how nice it would be to be a Democrat. Why, the world would be your oyster.
It would be possible for you to be a racist, a law-breaker, a child molester, a rapist, perhaps even a murderer, or many other things yet never have to worry about apologizing or not getting re-elected.
Several cases come to mind immediately. First of all, Teddy Kennedy had a little accident where he ran off a bridge and left a young woman to drown.
Did that keep him from being re-elected Senator from Massachusetts for six more terms? Nope. One of his nephews was charged with rape. Convicted? Nope.
There was a congressman, Gary Studs – name not a coincidence - a Democrat, also from Massachusetts if I’m not mistaken, who pursued young male pages even having a sexual affair with more than one.
Did that keep him from being re-elected to several more terms?
Now a Republican can send racy e-mails to an intern and it’s get out the cross, hammer and nails.
As far as being a racist is concerned, why you could even be a former Grand Klegle, or whatever, of the Ku Klux Klan and not have to worry about a thing. Even using the "n" word doesn’t draw a second glance.
That is, however, if you are a Democrat.
But, let a Republican crack a joke at someone’s one hundredth birthday party and it’s break out the tar and feathers for that racist.
Congressman Barney Frank, a Democrat, hired a male prostitute with public funds then allowed his "aide" to turn the Congressman’s home into a male brothel.
He’s now is chairman of the powerful House Banking Committee.
But, he did get a reprimand in his record. Whoop-de-do.
Chicago Congressman Dan Rostenkowski was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, one of the most powerful posts in Congress.
He served 18 terms and was indicted on seventeen charges connected to the House Bank scandal.
He served right up to the time authorities frog-hopped him out in handcuffs and off to the hooskow.
Heck, you can even be a Democrat and get caught on videotape discussing future bribes in 1980 and still be in Congress in 2008.
The name Jack Murtha ring a bell?
How could we overlook a former president who never had sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinski?
He was allowed to serve out his term as president with all the other Democrats circling the wagons to defend his peccadilloes on the basis "it’s only sex."
Never mind the perjury that got him disbarred. That certainly doesn’t rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.
The Democrat former president mentioned above even pardoned a Democrat Representative, Mel Reynolds, after having sex with female pages.
It pays to be a Democrat.
It’s even to the point journalists, or anyone else for that matter, are strictly forbidden from making any negative mention of a particular Democrat candidate for president or his wife, his blasphemous anti-American former pastor, his Communist former mentors, his former terrorist associates, his Muslim father, his Muslim step-father, his education in a Muslim school, or absolutely not mention his middle name.
In fact, any criticism of his hate-spewing wife, his blasphemous anti-American former pastor, his former Communist mentors, his former terrorist associates, his Muslim father, his Muslim step-father, his education in a Muslim school, or his middle name will be considered racist.
This Democrat candidate is allowed to make outrageous assertions about any racist tactics of his opponents or their lackeys since he is half-black.
Plus, he doesn’t have to substantiate those comments in any way.
What’s even more important to realize is the U.S. media is required to serve as press secretaries for his campaign requiring all the big TV anchors to travel with him when he makes a trip.
Naturally, all comments and reporting must be completely favorable.
Any press stories on him are not to portray him as inexperienced, unprepared, out-of-the-mainstream of American political thought, or a flip-flopper on important issues.
Also strictly forbidden is to present any negative aspects of his health care plan, his defeat, retreat and surrender plan for Iraq, or any other position.
Now, if on the other hand, one happens to be a Republican, there are no holds barred.
It’s perfectly permissible to lie, cheat, steal, write, or publish anything you want because they are conservative, after all.
Liberalism is always correct and conservatives are not just wrong, they’re evil.
So, wouldn’t life be wonderful if all candidates were Democrats?
But if that were the case, who would the media be biased against?
