I just hate those fking right wing hypocrites like Spitz....WHAT? He's a Democrat!?!? OMG! How can that be? He's always seemed so much better than everyone else, so righteous, so ethically, morally driven to excise evil on Wall Street and Main Street. OMG, my timbers are shaking, I just can't imagine such a fine man having---uh, clay feet.

Charter member of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy and proud of it.

Well, there is likely representation from both sides of the aisle on that client list . . .

So, two things.

1) This guy endorsed Hillary. Ohshit for her. It all comes down to dicks with her.
2) Finally, finally...someone on the other side of the aisle gets caught doing the nasty. But it's okay, because A) he fucked a woman, and B) nobody expects Democrats to be upstanding citizens, because they're too chicken-shit to take a stand against anything that makes one feel good.

Umm, how did this get twisted into a partisan issue?

But, aren't these cases more accurately described as hypocrite issues?

A politician votes or vocalizes against activities, then gets caught red-handed perpetrating the said same activities? I don't see how this is partisan.

Sure it is. Just because your party is filled with spineless do-nothing cunts, doesn't excuse them from scrutiny or vilification when they fall short of the expectations held of them by their constituency.

Right or wrong, perfect or not, Republicans have at least been willing to say "this is wrong, and as a society, we can't stand for it". Democrats aren't brave enough to do the same, which they think means if they get caught doing something questionable, they're off the hook. I call bullshit on that. Your party is insignificant. Whether or not you're a hypocrite is insignificant. That you fell short of your duties as a leader and role model is what is significant, and we should hold EVERYONE in elected office to an exceptionally high standard. We should fucking crucify them when they do something ignorant like this, if for no other reason, to send a message to others that they should take their power trip somewhere other than government.

Bringing this full circle, it's partisan because Democrats are all a bunch of guilt-ridden self hating vaginas. Cunt cunt cunity cunt. There...a wild generalization painted by a wide, sticky brush. Lemme go get some popcorn, brb.

Green Party slander. Care to back that up?

As a libertarian, I'm feeling completely left out.

Except that prostitution is a victimless crime, thus should not be a crime at all. But we're still left with that whole hypocrisy thing...

Back that up? Look no further than the accomplishments (or lack thereof) of this latest congress, versus the cumulative platform which delivered them to the majority.
