    If he were a Republican, imagine the reaction.

    Rep. Bob Filner is facing an assault and battery charge after an incident at Dulles Airport where he allegedly pushed an United Airlines bag claim employee as first reported by ABC7/Newschannel 8.

    ABC 7's Jay Korff and Kris Van Cleave broke the story

    Filner, a Democrat from California, allegedly attempted to enter an employees-only area on Sunday night.

    Hell, when I first came across this story, I had to Google his name to find the party affiliation. The stories I read made no mention of it.

    Hmmm...I wonder if that would have been the case were he a Republican?

    I'm sure, somehow, the Republicans will be responsable for his actions...;)

    The CIA, acting on orders from George Bush, stole his luggage.

    I'm shocked!

    Seriously, the story I first read went on and on about what a civil rights hero he is... I guess if you're in the right party, you could, I don't know, drive drunk off a bridge and drown a girl in the river and the press would still worship you.

    How about ... if your values are good and you've done good things in your life for people other than yourself and your cronies, then people cut you some slack when you screw up?

    Nah...why would it work that way.

    you guys are more apoplectic about this guy losing it (and yes, he did and he's a jerk for it) than you were about Cheney shooting a guy in the face or a CIA agent being outed.

    Pretty funny if it weren't so very sad.
