Who are the Dems kidding?

Republicans ousted representatives Gingrich and Livingston after both had extra-marital affairs. Republicans dumped Senator Packwood when he sexually harassed women in his office. Republicans forced Senator Foley to resign after he sent sexual explicit e-mails to Senate pages. Republicans don’t tolerate sexual misconduct and most involved don’t survive politically.

Democrats, on the other hand, fail the smell test. Democrats honor and revere their icon ‘Cigar Willy’ after he had sex with a young intern, stained her dress, and lied to a Federal Judge. Democrats praised and re-elected representative Barney Franks after he admitted to sex with a male prostitute, hired and allowed him to run a male prostitute ring out of his apartment. Democrats censored Jerry Studds then supported his re-election after Studds, unlike Foley, actually had sex with a teenage male page. Democrats also united to get mayor Barry re-elected after being taped with drugs and a prostitute, then stood behind a wet Senator Kennedy. Democrats surrounding the wagons in support of their sexual deviants has become, out of necessity, commonplace.

Does anyone else see the irony in Democrat attempts to convince America they’ve taken the high ground here. Who in Hades do these deceitful hypocrites think they’re kidding?
