  2. Hello again Polimom,
    The difference is the subject of hypocrisy. The Democrats aren’t running around pretending to be something they’re not to get the “values” vote. The Republicans have been caught redhanded lying to their base about the very reason their base votes for them. That’s a world of a different situation!
    Want to better understand some of the desperation among Christian politicos and what else they’re pretending not to know about? Follow the links and read about who I am and what I have to say. Notice that my last name is Page? Think this “page” scandal is a mere coincidence? The timing and ramifications are much worse than most realize yet.
    If Christian political leaders are going to go around attacking others for not living up to their professed values, it’s a damn good idea to be truthful and actually walk the walk. Logs and motes in the eye, camels through the eye of a needle, glass houses, kettles and pots, and what goes around comes around, et al. Karma’s a bitch when She finally decides enough is enough! This wouldn’t have been so bad on Republicans if they hadn’t been such arrogant hypocrites in order to corner the so-called values voters! Now the Two Candlesticks and Two Witnesses (Truth and Justice) are “breathing fire” and “raining hailstones!”
    Remember that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it!

  3. I don’t think it is accurate to say democrats elected a similar actor in the past. Democrats from one district in massachussets re-elected him. I don’t think Studds would have survived the 24 hour news cycle of today. Also, tying democrats of today with a congressman from over 30 years ago is about as meaningful as tying democrats of today with democrats in the 1960s that opposed civil rights.

  4. Cliff — I have to agree that the way things are covered now is having an enormous impact. But it’s also the more partisan atmosphere, I think (though I’m admittedly pretty ticked off about that, generally, and maybe put more emphasis there than others might).
    And yes, I wrote about the shifting cultural cycles last week: it’s hard to judge yesterday from today. Even without that swinging pendulum, though, I myself have changed a lot since the ’80s, particularly as regards children. As a result, I have some pretty big questions now about the “age of consent”, children and adults, and the very confused way we are approaching those issues. (Parenthood makes a BIG difference in a worldview… lol…)
