I see by the newspaper that Speaker of the House Denny Hastert is in trouble. Not because he did something, but because he didn’t do something—fast enough.
Did Mr. Hastert fail to kill Usama binLaden?
Did Mr. Hastert play sex games with a young page girl in his office while on duty?
Did Mr. Hastert lie to a Grand Jury?
Did Mr. Hastert store ninety thousand dollars of marked money in his refrigerator?
Did Mr. Hastert proclaim that gay men were pedophiles?
Did Mr. Hastert loose a child rapist on the public?
He didn’t do any of the above, but they were done by people of the opposite party. There was no outcry.
What did Mr. Hastert do? He failed to expel a Congressman fast enough. The Congressman wrote nasty text messages which Mr. Hastert did not know about. There was no physical damage to another person as a result of Mr. Hastert’s lack of fast action.
Yet, from the outcry of those who either ignored or protected people who were involved in the dastardly deeds listed above, is enormous. The outrage they suppressed when obvious crimes were committed by Democrats has now been found.
It is good to let it out. I did not know the mainstream media had any outrage in their systems at all. They have held it in for so many years that I thought it had atrophied.
And now I understand. Outrage can appear only when it is directed at Republicans.
Understanding always helps.
