quote: Democrats suck.
The hold their GOP counterparts to a much higher moral standard than they do themselves.
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
Democrats, don't have any moral standard rules to live up to.

Menendez is compromised. The impropriety alone of not declaring private jet escapades provided by his big donor is unethical and an example of what is wrong with politicians today. His declining to be interviewed and sudden reimbursment smack of guilt. He should resign IMO. And nobody should mention Vitter in response to this thread. His failures have nothing to do with Menendez.
