Interesting the "progressive" complaints

Byron York has an interesting article on former Al Gore's supposed attempted tryst with a masseuse back in 2006. What is even more interesting are the ridiculously pathetic excuses noted in the report by ... "progressives."

Finally she got away. Later, she talked to friends, liberals like herself, who advised against telling police. One asked her "to just suck it up; otherwise, the world's going to be destroyed from global warming."

That reminded me of a great hit from the Lewinsky era. Time magazine’s Nina Burleigh said, “I would be happy to give him” — Bill Clinton — “[oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”

And let me also remember Gus Savage, the Chicago congressman who set himself on a Peace Corps volunteer — black, like the congressman himself — in Zaire. He said, “Oh, come on, baby, when you help the shepherd, you help the whole flock.” He also said, if she submitted to him, she would be helping “the movement.” Later, when the young woman reported the congressman’s actions, he called her “a traitor to the black movement.”

You might remember Gore himself proclaiming Bill Clinton as the greatest president ever during the Lewinsky scandal. Our old friend Perry has time and time again guffawed at those who point out Al Gore's "green" hypocrisy (buying a huge mansion, traveling extensively). And then, of course, there's "old reliable."

What is this predilction among so-called "progressives" to turn a blind eye to outrageous and illegal acts among their own -- just to maintain their grip on power ... and dogma? Aren't "progressives" supposed to me the empathetic ones? The caring ones? The moral and law-abiding ones??

Just don't get in their way, however.

They really believe they are morally superior to you and therefore, better. Since they are better than you the normal rules do not apply. Their "minor" transgressions are not as important as their earnestness or zealotry in their cause. They want to Save The Planet you are EarthRaper! They Care About The Little Guy you care about eeeevil corporations!

Get with the program. It isn't "rape rape" if a Democrat does it, Hube.
