"The Beltway has changed nothing since the GOP scandals and is still acting blind, deaf, and dumb toward the Democrat scandals.
-- Michelle Malkin, lying again, Link

Massa resigned while Vitter, Sanford and Ensign stay in office and any headlines or current stories about them?

"The Beltway media has been doing its darndest to liken the ethical problems facing the Democrats today and those faced by the Republicans in recent years, but the differences could not be more stark. In the case of Eric Massa, for instance, within about a week of allegations of his misconduct coming forward into the public sphere, he resigned. Yet when you look at the scandals affecting the Republican Party, the response is very different. David Vitter, Mark Sanford and John Ensign are all still in office years and months after it became clear that they were worthless scumbags."

[SIZE=+1]Utah House Leader Admits Naked [/SIZE]
[SIZE=+1]Hot-Tubbing With 15-Year Old Girl[/SIZE]
Hard to believe it was a girl this time

"Fox news should keep this quiet for me"

Link
Excerpt:
Years ago, the Majority Leader of the Utah House took a nude hot-tub with a 15-year old employee, then paid her $150,000 and had her pledge to keep quiet, he admitted yesterday. The incident occurred in 1985, when Kevin Garn was 30, and married. In 2002, when Garn, a Republican, was running for Congress, the woman, Cheryl Maher, began contacting reporters prompting Garn to pay her $150,000 and have an attorney draft a non-disclosure agreement. With his wife by his side, Garn told reporters: "I expect to suffer public humiliation and embarrassment. Some lessons are hard to learn."

[SIZE=+1]FOX: Larry Craig who?[/SIZE]
They acted like this wasn't a story

mediamatters
Excerpt:
From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET on August 27, Fox News devoted only 3 minutes to segments discussing Larry Craig's arrest for trying to blow some dude and his subsequent guilty plea to charges of disorderly conduct. In the same six-hour period, MSNBC devoted 8 minutes to Craig's arrest, while CNN devoted 20 minutes.

Funny you should say that since the story only broke after he lost and it could not hurt him anymore. You may recall his faults were well known way back when... but why report the news when you can sit on it untill it's time to publish a book.:tongue:

so if he would have won the story would have gone nowhere?:cuckoo:

what is funny to me is that these guys hold office right now and did the same - David Vitter, Mark Sanford and John Ensign.

CNN on the first modern Tea Party (April 15 2009)

Nationwide 'tea party' protests blast spending - CNN.com

CNN) -- Armed with signs reading "no taxation without deliberation" and "stop bankrupting America," tens of thousands of people spent national tax day at organized "tea party" demonstrations across the country, protesting what some view as excessive government spending and bailouts.
"I think it's only a matter of time before these people quit carrying signs and start doing something else," said Ed McQueen, an Ohio resident who attended the Chicago rally. "What that is, I don't know. Quit paying taxes? Are they going to start carrying sticks and clubs? I don't know."
Bloggers in Seattle, Washington, were the first to bring conservatives together for a rally on February 16 against what they saw as too many government handouts to banks, the auto and mortgage industries. Protests followed in Colorado and Arizona.

The embers turned into a raging fire when later that month, CNBC personality Rick Santelli went off on Obama's policies live on air.
Liberal tea party critics aren't buying it. They call the protests "Astroturf," saying they aren't real grassroots events, but are organized by old-fashioned Republican Party bosses.
Really? :lol: The article concludes with a poll showing most American's support Obama. They did by the way, the poor guy had only been in office 3 months.

Now what about the Coffee Party?

CNN covers the launch of the liberal "Coffee Party"....

Meet the people who are percolating in the Coffee Party - CNN.com

Meet these members of the Coffee Party Movement, an organically grown, freshly brewed push that's marking its official kickoff Saturday. Across the country, even around the globe, they and other Americans in at least several hundred communities are expected to gather in coffeehouses to raise their mugs of java to something new.

They're professionals, musicians and housewives. They're frustrated liberal activists, disheartened conservatives and political newborns. They're young and old, rich and poor, black, white and all shades of other.
Born on Facebook just six weeks ago, the group boasts more than 110,000 fans, as of Friday morning. The Coffee Party is billed by many as an answer to the Tea Party (more than 1,000 fewer fans), a year-old protest movement that's steeped in fiscal conservatism and boiling-hot, anti-tax rhetoric.
Facebook? For reals?

Hopkins was 5 when she stared at the two water fountains: one marked "colored," the other "white." The New Yorker was somewhere in Virginia at a train stop with her mother and grandmother, and, well, she'd never drunk colored water before and figured white was what she wanted. But her grandmother yanked her away from that water, muttering something about her getting them all killed.
Touching story actually. Much hipper than those racist Tea Party people who's racism were bound to find proof of any day now.

Tony Anderson likes to say he was born into an organization. He has a twin brother and learned early on what it meant to work with others. Through church involvement and his family, the Detroit, Michigan, native gleaned more.

His great-grandmother's first cousin was the legendary civil rights activist Rosa Parks, whom he grew up calling "Aunt Rosa."
Another great story...really it is. And so much cooler than those racist Tea Party people who's racism we are bound to find proof of... hey it's only been a year

Hot Air Blog Archive Oh, by the way, Coffee Party leader volunteered for Obama and worked for the NYT

Nothing wrong with either of those things but they might have been worth mentioning in last night’s New York Times love letter to this exciting new nonpartisan civic group, might they not? William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has all the links you need, but before you read his post, re-read the Times puff piece and see if you can find any indication that this group skews left.
Le&#183;gal In&#183;sur&#183;rec&#183;tion: Coffee Party Parasites
I know it's another blog but between the two there are half a dozen legit links (I checked them all out, NYT to YT etc). It's just faster this way...

The New York Times and Washington Post are promoting a group called the "Coffee Party" organized by filmmaker Annabel Park.

The Coffee Party is a political parasite which presents itself as something it is not. As reported in the NY Times [see update below], Park presents herself as not hostile to the Tea Party movement, and in fact, hopes to bring some Tea Partiers into her group:
“We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party,” Ms. Park, 41, said. “We’re a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things.” ....

Ms. Park and chapter organizers said they would invite Tea Party members to join their Coffee counterparts in discussions. “We need to roll up our sleeves, put our heads together and work it out,” she said. “That’s, to me, an American way of doing this.”
In fact, a simple internet search (which the NY Times apparently is not capable of doing) reveals that Park organized the Coffee Party for the specific purpose of undermining the Tea Party movement.

Park is a former Strategy Analyst [Park's Linked In page has been taken down, here is a cached link] at the NY Times who was one of organizers and operators of the United for Obama video channel at YouTube:
Thanks for being on top of all this "objective" media! :clap2:
