The Vice-President's inappropriate and sexist remark to a female Senator being sworn in this past Thursday is illustrative not only of this man's complete disrespect for his office, but the rampant hypocrisy of the Left. During the swearing in ceremony, our ever classless VP told a female senator to spread her legs because she was going to be frisked. One could not imagine Dick Cheney, Dan Qualye or George H. W. Bush saying something so inappropriate and rude. But had they, the Left would have not only run them out of office, but would have tarred and feathered them and expelled them from Washington on a rail. As of yet there has been no condemnation from the feminists or any of the other hypocrites on the Left.
Joe Biden, like every other Liberal, is excused from the standards of sexism and racism that the Left applies with abandon to everyone on the Right. Which leads one to believe that they really don't believe the pap they preach, but like everything else in their world, it is to be used for political gain when possible. There is no political gain to calling out one of their own as a result of inappropriate behavior. Joe Biden's remark this past Thursday is only the latest glimpse into his complete lack of character and that of the establishment Left. While running for President in 2008, Joe Biden said that finally the Democrats had a clean, articulate black man in Barack Obama. I listened very closely but heard no criticism of this remark from anyone on the Left at the time or since.
This sense of hypocrisy has filtered down from the leadership on the Left to the rank and file. I know, for instance, woman who claim to support the advancement of females into positions of power and authority, except in cases where a woman exhibits Conservative principles. Then they are demonized, as is the case with black Conservatives. Those on the Left don't really support the advancement of women or blacks, but only Liberal women and blacks. The non-response from the Left in the wake of the Vice-President's remark proves this point beyond any doubt. In other words, there is no such thing on the Left as a deeply held conviction or principle, there are only the fluid positions that are guided by the winds of daily politics.
On issue after issue over the last few decades, one can outline a pattern by the Left of shifting loyalties based purely on a political outcome. There is a gaggle of Democrat politicians that claim to have worked with President Reagan on a whole host of issues from the economy to national defense, but actually fought him every step of the way. But now that history has rightly seen him as one of the greatest Presidents in modern times, Democrat politicians fall all over themselves to hitch their wagon to his star. This is the hypocrisy of politicians whose ideology has only wrought failure because it is not anchored by principle and conviction. And actually, in a real sense, Joe Biden is an appropriate standard bearer for the Left, their silent defense of his behavior is what I call the Joe Biden Effect.
