Franken, other Liberals silent about Midler? You "Bette"!

When Vice-President Dick Cheney told Senator Pat Leahy (D-VT.) to go "F--- yourself" last year in a private conversation, what was the prevailing outcry amongst Liberals?




Al Franken, comedian, radio commentator and looter-of-funds-from-seniors-and-children, consistently ridiculed Cheney's outburst towards Leahy.

When referring to a letter she received from the Republican Party, washed-up singer Bette Midler also exclaims "Go F--- yourself"!

The response?

Wild cheering amongst the crowd gathered for a Hurricane Katrina fund raiser.

I'll have to keep you updated on any rebuke or satire from Mr. Franken.

Yes, I know. Dick Cheney is Vice-President of the United States and thus should maintain some sort of decorum, given his role in society. But I think the exact opposite is also true. Shouldn't there be a standard of decency to live up to regardless of one's stature? Especially in a venue which is supposed to provide relief to victims of a terrible catastrophe like a hurricane?

But alas, these are liberals we're talking about. As Ann Coulter once opined, "Hypocrisy is the only sin that really inflames (liberals). Inasmuch as liberals have no morals, they can sit back and criticize other people for failing to meet the standards that liberals simply renounce. It's an intriguing strategy. By openly admitting to being philanderers, draft dodgers, liars, weasels and cowards, liberals avoid ever being hypocrites."

They've managed to stumble into hypocrisy this time.
