Re May 8 column by Issac Bailey, “‘Family values’ charade must end”
Even though I disagree with Issac Bailey about everything, I enjoy his writing.
Today’s column, however, really annoyed me. His holier-than-thou attitude about Mark Sanford and the GOP in general seems a bit disingenuous. Before dumping on the “family values” of the GOP, he might want to take a look at the left side of the aisle.
For the Democratic Party, shameful behavior is a “badge of honor.” The “icons” of the party would be ostracized by the GOP.
Robert Byrd, a former Klansman, is revered. Ted Kennedy, who left a young girl to die alone after driving off a bridge and not even reporting it for a whole day, was called the “Lion” of the Senate. How about Bill Clinton, a womanizer extraodinaire, who used the Oval Office as his personal brothel? He’s a hero of the party.
The list goes on, but the main point is that Mr. Bailey should look to the left before throwing rocks at the right.
