Today In Both Sides Do It: Reliable Beltway Stalactite Michael Gerson

From the The Washington Post:
America is currently cursed, not only with tribal politics, but with tribal morality. Some liberals tend to minimize or excuse offenses against a few women in the broader cause of women’s rights. What is a politician’s wandering hand in comparison to maintaining legal abortion? Some conservatives tend to minimize or excuse offenses against women in the cause of conservative governance. What are a few old accusations compared to cementing a conservative Supreme Court or passing tax reform?

Both sides...
It has been said that too much Wingnut Welfare leads to slothful, crappy writing.

Which is not to say that to motivate Michael Gerson to write in a less shamelessly dishonest manner he should be pelted with dog poop whenever he shows his face in public.

Because that would be wrong.

So very wrong.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

I am at least happy that Some Liberals has been getting some acting work lately. Oh, he's always paid the bills, guesting in pieces by well-paid centrist mush merchants. Boy howdy, though, ever since Republicans entered the final stages of their transformation into a death cult, Some Liberals (along with his brothers Many Liberals and Even Liberals) has been getting so many jobs in the elite media. Sure, it's often just as an extra standing across from whatever rejected Bond villain is currently ascendant in the GOP, but that's still a damn good opportunity and I'm happy for him. Sucks for everyone else, of course, but Some Liberals is definitely coming out of this with newfound fame.

Stalactite? Seems awful ambitious...
Don't you mean stalagmite?

You know an argument is utter bullshit when it couldn't withstand the "which liberals exactly?" follow up.

But then again, he's equating inappropriate talk and actions on one side with a future Bible thumping Senator forcing a 14 year old blow him behind a restaurant dumpster that has also been endorse by an actual rapist-in-chief in the White House.

Clearly Gerson, like much of the media, got their "Make sure Democrats CAN'T run on this shit!" marching orders.
