This has long been a defining contrast between the two parties. Both parties produce bad apples. Republicans tend to throw theirs out. Democrats promote theirs, and then pretend that in doing so, there was no bad to begin with. Over the years, Republicans have undoubtedly had more politicians resign in "disgrace" than Democrats. But Democrat disgrace abounds. The difference is that there is rarely a resignation following their disgrace. If anything, they celebrate when one of their own emerges virtually unscathed from a scandal that would bury a Republican. And of course they can always count on their loyal media to forget about investigative journalism and to look the other way when the accused has a D attached to his or her name. Could a Republican survive driving off a bridge while drunk and waiting nine hours to call for help while his passenger died? Or sexual assault in the Oval Office and perjury? Or the many recent unconstitutional power grabs that are now becoming almost routine? Not a chance. Many things uttered by Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Harry Reid over the last few years would have easily ended the career of a Republican. They would have been major Republican scandals, with round-the-clock "bombshell" coverage (a la Todd Akin). Instead, each is a harmless 'mispeaking', forgotten a moment after it is spoken. But this is what you get with Democrats. It's the party first, the unions second, and the citizenry be damned.
So if you're a liberal, even racism is okay. The establishment Left and their media allies may not like it, but you can rest assured they will quietly sweep it under the rug, where it will soon become old forgotten news.
You got two things wrong, Ransom. First, as a conservative, I did not vote for McCain because of Sarah Palin. I voted for him because I would have voted against that unqualified and shady-looking Democrat (whom, to this day, still hasn't proven his eligibility to hold the office), regardless of who was running on the GOP ticket. And secondly, Sarah Palin would make a better president than Mitt Romney? Nope. Stupidest thing I've read in some time.

Good article. It illustrates the fundamental problem with socialism and why it always fails. Socialism either denies the existence of human nature, or pretends that it can be overcome by government compulsion. Both beliefs are utterly preposterous, hence socialism's dismal track record.

This should mean that every decision made by the NLRB since 2012 is null and void. And if the suspicions many of us have about Barack Obama's ineligibility to hold the office are ever confirmed, every law and executive order signed by BHO since 2009 should likewise be declared null and void.
Once again, Ron Paul reminds us of why he never had a shot at the White House.
Blaming the victim is nothing new for Hillary. She did everything she could to destroy the women who came forth with their accusations against her sexual predator husband.

Disgraceful hypocrite. It's now obvious that this administration is going to crash and burn its way out of office.
College students. I've got to chuckle. Man, they're stupid. But with a media so eager to ignore and forget everything Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama have said or done more than two weeks ago, it's no wonder these kids are shocked by Hillary's past. The media is a major cause of their ignorance. If you'll recall, the mainstream media dug vigorously to discover whether teenager Mitt Romney took part in an unsolicited haircut nearly fifty years ago, but couldn't be bothered to find out what Barack Obama was doing the night of the 2012 Benghazi attacks, dismissing the debacle as 'old news'. It would be easy to shock these kids many times over again by reading them other various quotes by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, quotes from not so long ago.
No one with real faith and values would vote for Hillary Clinton any more than he or she would vote for Barack Obama. But Hillary, like Obama before her, is in luck, because, unfortunately for those of us who do have faith and values, our segment of the American electorate is now a minority.
