Letter to the editor: Cool it with the feigned outrageDemocrats never cease to amaze us with their double-standard as it applies to Republicans.
Democrats never cease to amaze us with their double-standard as it applies to Republicans. Recent letters to the editor in this paper exhibiting outrage over Sen. Lillie’s move to Woodbury is quite typical of liberals. Mr. Lillie is being accused of being a carpetbagger for this move.
Keep in mind, these are some of the same liberals who thought it was just fine for Mrs. Hillary Clinton, by way of Arkansas, via Chicago, to move to New York after Sen. Patrick Moynihan’s seat opened up due to his retirement. Out on the campaign trail, Mrs. Clinton claimed, while donning a Yankees ballcap, that she had always been a Yankees fan. I do not recall Democrats being outraged over this blatant exercise of carpetbagging along with her pandering to New York voters. Mrs. Clinton insisted that she was a New Yorker and should be considered for the seat because she “is” a Yankees’ fan? Please. She had no connection with New York. Mr. Lillie’s connection and community involvement with Woodbury is far more credible than Mrs. Clinton’s is to New York. Are Dems really as easy to fool as they seem, or is this just phony outrage created by those trying to drum up misplaced anger for not getting their way?
The bottom line is this: liberals need to spare us the double-standards. It doesn’t fly with the educated public, and frankly, it sends any credibility they have right out the window.
