While many can agree that this is just one...
Liberal ideas and ideals are true by definition (or at least so they believe). There's no need to explain or think about them, and every reason for them to demonize those who dare disagree (why, they must be evil!). The beauty (if you can call it that) of this sort of thinking (again, if you can call it that) is that you can hold your enemies to one impossible standard while holding yourself to none.
This past Friday, August 24, 2012, while campaigning in Michigan, Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a joke concerning his own birth certificate. The Obama campaign reacted with outrage to Romney’s joke, even though President Obama has joked about his own birth certificate in public. Naturally, responding to the Obama campaign’s outrage, some members of the media followed suit and did the same. Yet, the Obama campaign and the media refused to show outrage when Vice President Joe Biden recently made racially charged comments while on the campaign trail.
