The incredible right-wing hypocrisy
More proof of the hilarious, blatant hypocrisy of Loofah boy and Mr. Oxy(Neo)contin

There is plenty of hypocrisy on all sides of the table, whether it is right or left wing media or political figures. With the recent news that Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin’s 17 year-old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant, my oh my how the right wing hypocrisy has reached colossal new heights!
Bill O’ Liar had this to say recently about the Bristol Palin pregnancy, “Millions of American families are dealing with teenage pregnancy and as long as society doesn’t have to support the mother, father or baby, it is a personal matter”, and “It is true that some Americans will judge Governor Palin and her family…for the sake of her and her family, we hope things calm down”.
Back in December of 2007, in his idiotic segment “Pinheads and Patriots”, Bill O’ Liar had this to say about the pregnancy of 16 year-old Jamie Lynn Spears, “On the pinhead front, 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. The sister of Britney says she is shocked. I bet. Now most teens are pinheads in some ways. But here the blame falls primarily on the parents of the girl, who obviously have little control over her or even over Britney Spears. Look at the way she behaves”.
In other words, if you are non-religious TV star who does not go around preaching to everyone that you should be moral, then you should live by the highest standards and not have premarital sex. You should live the way Jesus wants you to live and not sin. It’s your fault because of your non-religious parents who brought you up in a non-religious home. But, not because they didn’t teach you religion, but because despite the fact that you had no role models and no religious instruction, you should have practiced what the Bible teaches anyway.
But, if you are the daughter of right-wing, religious, conservative parents who are constantly in the public eye and subject to scrutiny on a national level, then it’s perfectly OK, because it’s no one’s fault. It’s just one of those things that happen to good, religious, God-fearing people. After all, we are all sinners, right? If we didn’t sin then Jesus died for nothing. The sin has to be there so it can be forgiven. It’s not your Christian, God-fearing mother’s fault. She’s a public servant elected to a high office. She doesn’t have much time to teach you not to have sex. There are Bibles laying around the house. You should have read and studied them, but despite the fact that you didn’t, it’s OK. It’s not your fault. It’s society’s fault for the sexually explicit commercials on TV and the sexual references in the music you listen to that your Christian, Jesus-loving mother, once again, did not keep from you. This is a private matter and you should be left alone.
Classic O’ Reilly
Jon Stewart does a nice segment on this
Another defender of Palin’s daughter is big, fat, pill-popping Rush “I hate the troops” Limbaugh, who just days ago, on September 2, said this in response to a question that asked if Chelsey Clinton was pregnant when Bill Clinton was in office, would the reaction from the Republicans have been the same? [as it is about Bristol Palin], “You want to talk about Chelsea Clinton and what if she had gotten pregnant while living in the White House? Well, we could say, how do we know? How do we know she didn't?” Then said, “This is an all-out effort to destroy a 17-year-old child. I'll tell you, this is just despicable. It is just despicable, what we have become in this country, to destroy a 17-year-old girl in the hopes of destroying her mother and her father.”
But, in December of 2007, after the news broke of Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy, Mr. Oxycontin said this to a caller:
CALLER: Would you tend to think that a family in this position, though, wouldn't you think that there would be a more watchful eye as a parent to be watching over these kids so this doesn't happen to them?
RUSH: I would certainly hope so, but it's long past time for this to happen. The parents here are the culprits!
As with O’ Reilly, Rush Limpballs also believes that the higher standard should be practiced by the ones who don’t profess to be bound by that standard, while the religious conservatives get a free pass on the very standard they impose on others…..simply amazing
Billo wins the gold (again) in Worst Person!
