Lies, damn lies and Repubs

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2009 at 6:17 AM

John Brummett endeavors to explain the rules of decorum to the blind, deaf and intellectually dumb (defenders of Joe Wilson, Sarah Palin, etc.) In the matter of Joe Wilson:

This prevailing and chronic tit-for-tat rationalization of boorish political behavior — “it’s no worse than what they did” — is rampant these days. And it’s bogus, better left on the grade school playground.

Sometimes there can be no tit-for-tat. Sometimes what one side says or does is way more wrong than what the other side says or does. Sometimes one side is flat right and the other is flat wrong.

Like now.
