Hypocrisy on parade

April 17, 2009

I promise to get back to writing posts and inane music videos soon, but politics this week has just about made my head explode.  I don’t even have the energy to rant anymore.  I’m just going to bullet point some highlights:

Americans may not know or care that the UK Government is having a bit of a PR meltdown, which is crystallized in the following qute from the troubled PM Brown: “I take full responsibility for what happened. That’s why the person who was responsible went immediately.”  This quote sounds like it came from a alternate reality where Yogi Berra was Nixon’s speechwriter.

Second, if you are a school of journalism, giving a journalistic award to an alleged journalist, should you then be arresting journalists who are covering your event?

Third, if you are a representative in congress, should you be calling current “tax” protests despicable and shameful when your husband pleaded guilty to tax violations and bank fraud in 2005? (via Instapundit)

Finally, you would think that a Supreme Court justice would have a little more respect for the first amendment when speaking in a public forum.  But then you’d be wrong. (via Freespace)
