Partisan Hackery Rule of Thumb

If you’d not offer the same excuses for the scandals and wrongs of the opposite party — e.g. “What does it matter?” or “The President couldn’t have known what these low-level government employees were doing” or “We shouldn’t pry since it’s a matter of national security” or “It’s for the children!” — then you’re just a partisan hack.

Now that some scandals are bearing down on Obama’s Administration, I’m seeing that in spades from my progressive friends. Next time the GOP wins the White House, I’ll see lots of the same from my conservative friends.

Objectivity in politics can be difficult, but too many people don’t even try.

    Exactly. The last two times I’ve brought this up online were 1) conservative complaints about how long it took to get the Boston bombers, and 2) “Umbrellagate”. I don’t think either one of those things would have been in the conservative press under a Republican administration.
