We are All Democrats Now

This from the Rush Limbaugh newsletter pretty much sums up what I think of the Sen. Craig scandal:

Larry Craig's behavior is an individual's behavior, not that of an
entire party. The difference is how the parties (and the media) react to
scandals. You will not find any prominent Republicans saying Craig didn't do
anything wrong, but if this were a Democrat, the whole party would be jumping to
his defense. There is a double standard, and there is hypocrisy, but it's not on
the right.

Without defending this guy's action, almost everyone in the GOP is jumping on the skin-Craig-alive bandwagon, something you don't see from the Left when a similar incident occurs in their Party, who without fail get a pass from the MSM no matter how bad their actions are. I wish the Right would at least go slow in passing judgement and not give our enemies in the Media any more ammunition to slander our Party.

Update: Tom Delay, quoted at Blogs for Bush nails it-""There are scandals that need to be addressed. Republicans address them, Democrats re-elect them." Check out the link for examples.
