Lyncho goes Leviticus
Former Vice-President Al Gore testified before a Senate committee about global warming and Republicans were annoyed because he supposedly got special privileges, including being allowed to speak for thirty minutes with an opening statement. Of course, allowing oil company executives to testify before the Senate without being under oath is just business as usual.
President Bush does not want congress to subpoena his top political strategist, Karl Rove. The president does not want a “witch hunt.” Of course, his party would never use that kind of tactic on a popular Democrat president.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is thinking of running for president and he says that the private lives of candidates should not be allowed. That means we cannot ask about his divorces or the affair he had while leading the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Hypocrisy is nothing new, but you would think they could learn a little finesse.
The family values crowd might do well to learn a little about the Golden Rule.
No, not that one. Of course conservatives live by the one that says those who have the gold rule.
I have in mind the one that tells us to do unto others as we would want them to do unto us. That would work in politics too.
