oh, NOW Republicans want privacy… how convenient…

Did you know that we’re not supposed to criticize any Republicans, ever? For some reason, the holier-than-thous feel that whenever they make a mistake, they should be instantly forgiven and the whole incident swept under the rug.

Sarah “Token Woman” Palin’s 17 year old daughter had some anti-Republican premarital sex, and got herself pregnant. Palin had to release this info to combat rumors that her youngest child, Trig, might have been Bristol’s. So, how do you combat a rumor that your unwed teenage daughter didn’t give birth to 4 month old Trig? You do it by saying:

oh yeah? How can Trig be her son when she’s 5 months pregnant?

So now that “TW” Palin announced her personal failure of abstinence-only education, we’re supposed to respect the privacy of her failure to lead as a moral mother.

During the Clinton years, the Republicans set a new precedence concerning the privacy of politicians and their families by viciously attacking the Clintons. I was in high school at the time, not too concerned with politics in general, and even I remember jokes made at Chelsea Clinton’s expense.

In fact, it was John McCain that told one of the more popular jokes about Chelsea. To whom did he tell this joke? Not to his “cunt” wife (his words, not mine), not his children, not his aides, staff, friends…

No, John McCain found that joke worthy of speech material for a fund-raiser. Business as usual, ey Johnny Boy?

And we all know that it was ok with the Republicans to screech about Bill Clinton’s affair on a regular basis. But when David Vitter was caught, oh then we’re supposed to respect their privacy? What makes the Vitter situation really laughable, was that during the Monica Lewinsky affair, Vitter’s wife said:

“I’m more like Lorena Bobbit than Hillary,” … If he [Senator Vitter] does something like that, I’m walking away with one thing, and it’s not alimony, trust me.”

Then when her man’s fetish for hookers & diapers was revealed, she apparently hid all her knives.

Scroll to 1:34 to see blazing hypocrisy.

How about all the other trumpeters of “family values” and Clinton denouncers who overwhelmingly were adulterers themselves? I see no one holding back in their attack of John Edwards and his infidelity. And I’m not saying that anyone should, but…

Why is it ok to pry into the sex lives of Democrats, but when the tables are turned, all of a sudden, everyone is supposed to give the Republicans some privacy?

So now that Bristol (Myers Squibb???) Palin is knocked up, nobody’s supposed to talk about it?

Nope, its called precedence. Sorry Bristol. I feel bad for you on many levels. (Only a Republican would name their daughter after a pharmaceutical company.) It’s not fair that she’s going to have to be in the spotlight, but the Republicans set that precendent in the 90s. And what makes it even more of a story, is that it is the Republican party who touts the morals that would actually denounce you. (Ok, that’s not fair to all Republicans. I mean the Religious Right Repubs.)

This was the party that found Monica Lewinsky more important than actual dealing with issues that affect their constituents. This was the party that insisted on dividing this country over stupid non-issues like abortion or gay marriage. This was the party that touted “family values” yet lusted after destroying the families of anyone left of Ann Coulter. It was around this time that I really thought about some quote Nietzche made…

Something along the lines of… beware of those who are quick to punish…

Anyhow, I blame these people with the rapid degeneration of our nations politics. They impeached a president over lying about a blow job, but defend to the death, a man who lied us into the worst foreign policy move in the history of America’s existence.

The current “Republicans” care way more about image than anything of actual substance. They are a party governed by convenience.

Why bother vetting a VP choice when we can just throw a woman up there to git dem Hillary votes?

If it was a party of actual knowledge and substance, they would have noticed how offensive the Sarah “Token Woman” Palin nomination would be to anyone with a functioning brain. Of course, the right did their typical dance of calling the choice “brilliant” just because a Republican made it. Everyone else thought… “wtf?”

Now that all the fuck-ups of the past decades of conservative rule are coming to light, now that people are starting to see that these guys are the BIGGEST hypocrites… Now, they ask for privacy? After 8 years of dismantling our civil rights, after decades of constant insults and ridicule for our “questionable morals”. Now they want us to give them the respect they would NEVER give to us?

Wow.

Talk about presumption…

Do you know what I call people like this? Stuck up. People that demand respect they don’t give you; think they are better than you. And these guys had the nerve to brand liberals as elitists! You know how to tell where the Republicans really stand? Take a look at what they denounce. Why else do you think there’s practically a Republican sex scandal coming out every other week? That’s why I hate the current stock of Republicans more than I hate the Democrats. And as bad as I feel for Bristol Palin, its really not that much. She should be thanking her lucky stars that her mom’s a Republican. They’re the ones who do the real mud slinging anyways. Democrats, overall, have too much empathy to sink to that.

If she was Obama’s daughter, that would be the end of his campaign. If she was a Democrat, the Republicans would be calling everything into question. That’s their MO. There would be all these “experts” commenting on urban lifestyle, or some other bullshit. They would find a way to mention it in every public appearance, on all talk radio, on their blogs, and the rest of their noise machine. Anything to win, right guys?

Like I said, a party of convenience. Remember the “nuclear option” the Repubs wanted to introduce a few years ago? They wanted to get rid of the filibuster. Cause being in charge of all 3 levels of government, just wasn’t quite enough power huh? Part of me was hoping it would go thru, because anyone with a brain saw that their reign would not last too long. They’re way too greedy for that.

But alas, they caught a break and it didn’t pass. Just like how Bristol will probably get a huge break. She’s lucky her mom’s a Republican.
