Choking Hypocrisy From Left

The high profile hypocrisy monitors never seem to focus on liberals / Democrats. Sure the conservative blogs and talk shows put the spotlight on them, but it is very hard to find elsewhere. The fact is that the hypocrisy on the left is so thick it has a choking effect to observe. We see jet-setter Al Gore hiding behind his Environmental Bulimia. We see the Dems different standard on perjury and pardons when you compare their treatment of Scooter Libby and Bill Clinton. Harry Reid is grandstanding and making a fool of himself demanding that Bush pledge not to pardon Libby.

There is a double standard on perjury between Libby and Tim Russert. According to Victory Toensing in National Review Online:
The court prevented the defense from impeaching Tim Russert: The NBC anchorman, who has a law degree, testified he did not know a lawyer could not accompany a witntess before the grand jury. The defense then exhumed three clips where Russert had said on the air that a lawyer cannot go into the grand jury with his client. The judge would not allow the jury to hear that other honorable people sometimes forget or misspeak when being grilled on the witness stand.

If this is the case, why is Russert still considered honorable and respected. Why no charges from Fitzgerald against the same kind of perjury that he accused Libby of? In fact there is more evidence of Russert perjury - video tape, than against Libby - witness testimony with demonstrable memory faults. I found it ironic that on CNN somebody stated that it was likely Russert's testimony and "high credibility" that tilted the decisions for the jury.

With such a mountain of examples to choose from, I will finish with John Edwards. Edwards is building his presidential campaing on class warfare and massive wealth transfers. To bolster his argument Edwards drops the name "Jesus" by stating:
I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs...I think he would be appalled, actually.
Of course nothing portrays "selfish short-term needs" like an 82,000 square foot house and a $2.6 million beach summer home. (photo courtesy of Rush Limbaugh). Rest assured if AP had been doing a similar story on a wealthy Republican, they would have squeezed in references to such excess.

The fact is that liberalism is loaded with hypocrisy. However, they bank on people being ignorant of the details. They count on the media keeping their dirty secrets from high profile exposure. They look to mitigate what is told by picturing conservative sources as angry and hateful instead of informative. Liberals have infested and infected every influential area of society: media, education, unions, science organizations, medical organizations, legal organizations, all levels and departments of government (including the Pentagon, State Department, the CIA, the FBI, the Justice Department), the entertainment world. At times it seems a nearly impossible battle to fight. Ignorance, deception and disinformation are a liberal's best friend.
