When is bigotry not bigotry?

When it is committed by a liberal. Sen. Trent Lott was raked over the coals for an offhand birthday remark to former Senator Strom Thurmond. Lott's remark never mentioned any specific race, and undoubtedly had zip to do with the subject.

Two days ago, Virginia Representative Jim Moran made an outright bigoted remark, and he's getting quite a pass. Moran effectively blamed Jews for our entire stance on Iraq, claiming, "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this." Imagine the furor that would have erupted had any conservative even hinted that anti-war protestors were primarily members of any minority.

"Today's report confirms that, despite White House scare tactics, Social Security remains sound for decades to come.."

-? Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (NV) upon hearing reports that the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds will go bankrupt even earlier than predicted.
