Hypocrisy of the left swirls like London fog

The chicken in the cage is dead and it's time to reach for our gas masks. A weapon of mass regurgitation has been set off in the form of hypocrisy. There are so many things the left accuses the Bush administration of doing that they themselves do. It is like some sort of psychological mirror complex where what they should see in the mirror somehow they think they see in others.

Basically it all boils down to the left going through this presidency with chronic foam on their chin - fomenting whenever the president just breathes. Everything that goes wrong is a brand new opportunity to tar and feather Bush. The cart is before the horse here. If they truly cared about people, they would want to discover what happened,how to fix it and how to prevent it from happening again. This process of determining what happened doesn't work very well when there are preconceived ideas prior to doing the research.

With every accusation that comes out from the left about Katrina, there are many layers of government, people, votes, actions and decisions that participated in the problem. Each time we hear Bush did such and so, we look and find significant culpibility in others.

With Michael Brown you have a heyday on the left of charging how irresponsible it was to appoint someone with his "experience". That may be true and a blot on Bush's record, BUT it also lays bare how irresponsible Democrats were during these Senate confirmation processes. While highly qualified appointees to various positions get grilled, stalled, smeared and sometimes blocked, Michael Brown sails through on a VOICE VOTE OF 100% CONFIRMATION.

While the Dems pompously proclaim the rights of the Senate to advise and consent as an excuse to harrass good nominees like Condi Rice, John Bolton, Gonzales, Priscilla Owen, Miguel Estrada, etc. they fall asleep at the switch when someone like Michael Brown is nominated. The Senate Democrats decrying "Brownie's" appointment are hypocrites of the foulest kind because they had the power to stop it.

I'm not sure if the left will ever learn that hypocrisy and credibility are not compatible.
