In the last two weeks, two politicians, one a Democrat and the other a Republican, are involved in scandals that should have the public outraged, but which one do you think the DDBMSM are steering the public to be more outraged about?
Politician number one, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villar (currently, his surname is Villaraigosa, but when the wife gets her divorce, she will take back her part of the combined last name, Raigosa), who not only gets caught cheating on his wife, but with a Spanish language television reporter who was covering, ta da, the mayor! Well, obviously cheating on his wife is bad enough, but this is not the first time as in 1994, Mrs. Villaraigosa filed for divorce when Mr. Villaraigosa was caught with his pants down. But with a reporter that is supposed to be covering the mayor from an "unbiased" position, that alone raises numerous questions including conflict of interest on both the reporter and Mr. Villar and whether or not there was more favorable coverage of Mr. Villar as a direct result of the affair. But, somehow because it is a Democrat that has gone this way around the block many times, the media seems to be covering for Mr. Villar instead of doing their job and finding out not just about this affair but others that Mr. Villar may have had with other women in powerful positions.
Politician number two, Louisiana Republican senator David Vitter, a down the line conservative. Sen. Vitter's sin is cavorting with at least one or two prostitutes before he became a senator and was a measly member of the House of Representatives. I have to give it to Louisiana, corruption and morally questionable politicians is one thing that appears to be bipartisan. Now, buying sex with a prostitute is wrong on many levels, but we have no concrete evidence of this. All we have for sure is his telephone number ending up in the phone logs of Deborah Palffy, who has been indicted for running a prostitution ring under the guise of an escort service. And today, another prostitute in Louisiana who said that Mr. Vitter was a customer. So, Mr. Vitter admitted to committing a sin and that he asked his wife's and God's forgiveness. Now, since he was not actually caught in the act of buying sex, he can not be prosecuted. But the media is jumping on this scandal and probably scouring all of D. C. and Louisiana to find more prostitutes to embarrass the senator further. All possibly leading to a resignation and, well ol' Gov. Kathleen Blanco, as in blank during Hurricane Katrina, a Democrat could appoint another Democrat and increase the Democrat majority in the senate.
Clearly, Sen. Vitter is getting slammed more than Mayor Villar. One is a Republican who at least knows what standards are and one is a Democrat who goes through women like one does the weekly laundry.
In the DDBMSM eyes, Sen. Vitter is the hypocrite and Mayor Villar is not.
But, here is a little point. When one has very high standards and falls short, he or she does not blame anyone else. When one does not have high if any standards, he or she finds everyone else to blame.
Maybe that is what drives the DDBMSM crowd batty and trying to get conservatives riled up. The seeming hypocrisy.
The real story is that both Sen. Vitter and Mayor Villar are men who fell short in the most sacred earthly relationship, marriage. One asked for forgiveness, the other decided not to put up a fight. Too bad the DDBMSM crowd does not get that story.
