The Washington Post, in a seeming answer to Ben Stein’s piece yesterday, analyzes why it is that Republicans are more susceptible to hypocrisy allegations than Democrats when sex scandals erupt. Reason, in a nutshell: the GOP’s socially conservative image.
Todd thinks he knows who’s to blame for this: “It’s the media, to be honest. What is the standard ‘gotcha’ story in the media? It’s hypocrisy. If we can prove hypocrisy, we have a story. . . . So in a sex scandal, the bar for Republicans is lower.”
