John McCain has suddenly become a darling of the religious and far right crowd because the New York Times published an article which claimed there might have been a romantic relationship between the senator and a female lobbyist. Rush Limbaugh and other TV pundits are up in arms at the very suggestion a prominent political leader could be chaged with sexul misconduct and accuses the New York Times of slanderous news reporting. It is reported thousands of dollars are pouring into McCain’s coffers as a result of this newspaper attack. Rush hopes McCain has learned from this lesson what happens when one is friendly to liberals who halt at no point in their mean-spirited manner of slandering right thinking political leaders.
Perhaps, I have been sleep walking these past few years, but don’t I recall Mr. Limbaugh –AND the New York Times printing slanderous comments about the alledged Whitewater Scandal? I assume the New York Times prints all the news that is fit to print when it publishes false accusations against Democrats. The Clintons were never proven guilty of anything related to Whitewater but Rush Limbaugh– AND the New York Times had a field day smearing their reputations. I believe Mr. Limbaugh never said a word about Monica Lewinsky on his program because he does not believe in discussing the personal romantic lives of political leaders. If there was an Olympic medal for hypocrisy, Rush Limbaugh would win the Gold.
The New York Times received information from a former aide of John McCain who hinted there may have been improper behavior on the part of McCain. After all, the Senate reprimanded McCain in the 1980s for improper behavior involving a banking scandal. Their was certainly grounds to pursue the story. Perhaps, Mr. Limbaugh can agree to halt any further personal attacks on Democrats in exchange for Democrats halting personal comments about his new hero, John McCain.
