The party of personal responsibility

Remember how the Republicans preached about their moral superiority when it came to taking responsibility for your own actions? That's why it is so darn amusing to watch them try to slime Democrats as the leakers of the Foley Affair.

And that's why this story showing Democrats failed to get the media to bite on the story for months is so instructive. (We will ignore, at this moment, why no one at Florida newspapers like the Miami Herald and St. Petersburg Times showed an interest in it. Tuckered out after Monicagate?)

Equally laughable is the assertion that the Democrats are unfairly making political hay out of a sexual scandal. Is this same party that did a great impersonation of the Taliban sex police during the Clinton years?

Enquiring minds want to know.
