What a difference a D makes. Media Hypocrisy

"Isn't it great to have a president who says something foolish or impolitic from time to time?"says Michael Kinsley of President Obama
Many won't remember him. He was Pat Buchanan's liberal on Crossfire. Occasionally, he turns up as a liberal talking head.
Well he turned up in the Washington Post smiling about President Obama's gaffes. He says that they are "like totallydifferent man", than the gaffes of others.
he says, "But Obama's rhetorical goofs usually are different from Joe Biden's momentum-mouth, just as they are different from the empty-headed nonsense of George W. Bush and the bizarre country-club-bar chatter of Bush's father."
He lists some of the gaffes. "Before Gates and the police, there was his joke about Nancy Reagan conducting séances in the White House, and then an unfortunate (though very common) use of the Special Olympics as a punch line, and so on."
Let us not forget others......

Sotomayor is member of all-female elite club.

Guess who wrote the article that the following excepts are from.......

President Obama's first Supreme Court nominee is a member of an all-women's club called the Belizean Grove.
If Obama had nominated a man who was a member of an all male club, that would be a big issue and probably a fatal one. So how is it different if Sotomayor is a member of a club set up specifically to be the female equivalent?
It's the openly expressed purpose of this organization is to create a female elite.
Sotomayor chose to make the preposterous argument that the Belizean Grove isn't a women's club. It's just that no men have ever applied for membership, you see. White clubs used to explain the absence of black members the same way. It's a laughable argument -- a brazen whopper -- and an insult to the citizenry and the Senate that must confirm her.

Was it some right wing hardliner? Was it a Republican Senator?
No , it is from little Michael Kinsley of Crossfire fame
