Jonah Goldberg at NRO has written the ultimate thinkpiece on political hypocrisy: The Secret Files of the Anti-Hypocrite Squad
Michael Moore, the biggest mouthpiece of the anti-hypocrite Left, constantly denounces Republicans as racists for opposing affirmative action. Schweizer reports that Moore almost never hires black people. Moore insists, "I don't own a single share of stock." He denounces clever Enron style schemes to conceal wealth and rails against Haliburton as the Mother of All Evils. He told C-Span's Brian Lamb in his best prolier-than-thou voice that he wanted nothing to do with the stock market. "That's the rich man's game."
Well, it turns out Moore's got another game going. As Schweizer reports, Moore told the IRS his home is the headquarters of his tax-free foundation, to which he contributes some of his millions for the write-off. The foundation, in turn, not only bought stock — its holdings are a Who's Who of "greedy" corporations, including Halliburton.
Some of us Republicans marveled at Nixon opening the doors to China...but the press was beside itself. Thinly veiled hints of Nixon hypocrisy permeated the pages of NY Times and other bastions of progressive thought. Which, of course, was the point. It took Nixon to do that... otherwise imagine if Hubert Humphrey had been elected and sought to do the same!
Currently, one only has to look at the recent days' events to see more examples... Fitzgerald lionized; seen as the "Anti-Starr" by all the Moonbats. While attacked by shallow-thinkers like Hannity.
Well, Starr just did his job... get into a debate with a moonbat, get past the point of impeached for sex, which is difficult.. and the argument from the left comes up empty. But that doesnt matter, they'll continue to howl at the moon about the famous 16 words being a lie while Clinton's foibles were a 'misunderstanding'.
As Ann Landers once replied to a writer who said she doesnt go to church "because of all the Hypocrites, there"... where else would you have them?
Well, I'd rather NOT have them in politics.. but those beltway idiots are people too, so I guess there's no helping it.
