Dems Gone Wild...Press Mostly Silent

I would be remiss if I didn't point out two stories that, had they been Republicans, would be looping on CNN ad nauseum...

Imagine the stories/comments on Kos if Saxby Chambliss gave a gun to his aid to sneak into the capital building (although it's illegal to have a concealed weapon in D.C..) and then let the aid sit in jail and take the rap...

"A senior aide to U.S. Sen. Jim Webb (D) pleaded not guilty to weapons charges Tuesday after he allegedly entered a Senate office building with a loaded pistol.

Thompson was arrested Monday when he entered the office building with a loaded pistol and two other loaded magazines in a briefcase that he placed on an X-ray machine, court documents said. He told the officer at the building's entrance that the weapon belonged to Webb." (source)

Now envision the press John Warner would get if it was found that vets suffered under his decisions while his family was directly profiting from the "illegal" wars...?

"...SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.
Feinstein abandoned MILCON as her ethical problems were surfacing in the media, and as it was becoming clear that her subcommittee left grievously wounded veterans to rot while her family was profiting from the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan." (Read the entire story)

Things that make you go hmmmmmm....
