I'll use one glaring example to prove my point.
If there is no double standard then I shouldn't be able
to find one billboard, no aircraft carrier, no mountain side
size example of a double standard.
Right ? I mean that's logic isn't it ?
To disprove "there is none" don't you only have to find "just one" ?
McSame brings the family to the Sturgis, South Dakota Biker Rally.
That sentence alone should pretty much slam dunk this one, imagine
if you will Barack bringing Michelle, Malia and Sasha to let's say,
a Gangsta Rappa Rally and partying, singing to the choir ?
Come on think about it, what would Morning Joe and his crew,
Wolf Blitzer, Chris Matthews, David Gregory, Glen Beck, the
apologizers, propagandists, enablers of ABC, CBS, NBC,
msNBC, CNN, FUX, et al, what would they have said about this ?
But this example gets, much, much more, well, like a friggin'
elephant eating pumpkins in front of the 50 inch plasma screen.
Along with making history with his appearance, McCain came close to breaking new ground as he introduced his wife, Cindy McCain (who, Drogin wrote, "wore the equivalent of a nun's habit here: black jeans and a long-sleeved shirt").
McCain, Drogin relates, told his rowdy listeners "that he had encouraged his wife to enter the annual Sturgis beauty contest, one in which nudity is not uncommon. ... 'I told her with a little luck she could be the only lady to serve as first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip,' he said with a broad grin."
There were a couple of excellent diaries here on DKos yesterday, please
post a link with any comment you'd like to make.
But what I want to discuss is what would have been the MSM commentary
if Barack while attending the Gangsta Rappa Rally had offered to enlist
Michelle in let's say a jello/mud wrestling or wet T contest or just
offered to have her walk the Gansta Rappa Runway in a bikini, smiling
and waving ? And all this with the Obama family onstage ?
What would they have said if Michelle stood there smiling, giggling as
Barack threw her hat into the jello/mud/mosh pit ring ?
Quod Erat Demonstratum, no make that SNAP Q.E.D. !!
