Q. Have They No Shame? (Updated) 0

A. No.

Addendum, the Next Morning:

Will Bunch:

As for Ensign, despite his blatant hypocrisy, I’m not a big fan of jumping over every GOP guy who cheated on his wife; when it comes to morality, there’s no reason to think that either party has the edge, although for some reason it does seem like more Republicans have found themselves in embarassing spots lately. (Although I’m less worried about what Ensign was up to than where someone like Democrat Jack Murtha has been putting his hands — in the cookie jar).

If Jack Murtha has his hands in the cookie jar (as appears more than possible), that’s not a good thing and ultimately harms more persons than Ensign flying his ensign in foreign waters.

But Murtha hasn’t been running around sanctimoniously pontificating about other persons’ hands in other cookie jars.

As George Washington Plunkitt famously said, “There’s honest graft and there’s dishonest graft.”

It’s not the affair.

It’s the hypocrisy.

The cut-throat self-righteous sanctimonious hypocrisy which is the dishonest graft of the Republican Party.
