I was tickled by the Senate's move to vote for a non-binding resolution against the pull out of troops from Syria, even though the Senate did not have the courage to vote for military use of force in Syria.

So a good buddy of mine went to VMI and he showed me a pic of him with the title “coonman” underneath his name.

It's just terrible what strong drink does, sometimes.

Murray Rothbard enjoyed some good Sunday drunk posting, too.

Now Gov. Blackface, (D) Virginia, has allegedly leaked that his black Lt. Gov. has a sexual assault in his past.

Alyssa Milano outside Va. Lt. Gov. Fairfax's office is going to be LAF.

 

Also, the Washington Post failed to report on the VLG even though the woman claiming assault gave dates and details.

Compare that to their coverage of Kavanaugh. Disgusting double standard.

Compare apples to apples: I suspect if the woman wants to testify in person in front of the Senate, and there is a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court with no possibility of ever facing voters before or after the appointment involved, the "disgusting" Wapo will cover the event fully.

 

Added:

 

Oh, and there is also the fact that it is the dems who are pushing him to step down unlike the reps in the Kavanagh case. So not so much partisan conflict to report either.

 

Is perhaps your disgust based on something other than a strict comparison along the same relevant dimensions?

Give me a break. There was no evidence at all except Ford's words. None of her friends could verify her claims. Then you had multiple Dems and the media labeling Kavanaugh as a GANG RAPIST despite zero evidence of this being true. They said due process be damned. Even after no  corroborating evidence could be found, the media still vilified him.

 

How is this not apples to apples comparison? Two men each having sexual assault allegations hurled at them with questionable evidence, if any at all. Media put one on blast, the other gets off because there are supposedly "holes" in the story. The only difference is one was a  republican thrust into the spotlight after nomination, and the other is a state level democrat Lt. Governor.

 

So no, my disgust is with the blantant double standard. It's that simple. You can try to pull this conversation into the microscopic details, but I'm not playing that game with you.

 

Either you have a consistent standard to apply to these situations, or you don't, thus creating bias. The Washington Post gladly takes the latter.

We are all hypocritical when it comes to politic.  I think the government is too large and has no business dictating whether I purchase health insurance or what type I purchase.  I also do not care that the NSA has access to all of my texts and phone calls.  See? Hypocritical.

Well I think we see things a bit differently.

 

1. BOTH Northam and the Lt. Gov. have been getting multiple calls from dems to step down. There is NO wall of party loyalty being shown. Unlike the Kavanagh situation.

2. Kavanagh was not being considered for a criminal conviction, he was being considered for a promotion. There is no applicable criminal standard to apply no matter how many times anyone asserts there is. None. Nada. I sure as hell wouldn't hire him to escort my daughter anywhere there is beer in the area. Nor would I support him over other equally qualified, equally conservative candidates of which there are scores. This is the silliest part of the whole Kavanagh deal to me.

3. Kavanagh has never and now will never have to face voters. For possibly the best part of a half century on into the future. Not true of the politicians. They both would and no dem party organization is going to support their candidacy in the future. The party cannot force them to resign, but it can force not supporting any future candidacy.

 

There are other differences, but these are hardly "microscopic". 

 

Anyway, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

So I watched the State of the Union, well until I got bored. Apparently the Dems don’t feel applause is necessary that we have low unemployment and that minority unemployment is low.  Dems also seem to disagree that all immigrants should come to our country legally.  Their applause coordinator needs some work.

I have always found the SotU the most unwatchable of all political theater.  Even when the person delivering it is a reasonable adult human.
