in the interest of fairness

I went all on a rant about Elizabeth Dole's arbitrary "atheist" namecalling against Kay Hagan yesterday, but I would be remiss not to call attention to it when Democrats (or Dem affiliates and surrogate groups) do it too.

Not that I'm overflowing with love for Mitch McConnell or anything, or that the actions of one Dixiecrat group are representative of the party as a whole, or that McConnell isn't responsible in his own small way for being a prominent promoter of that mindset that believes homophobic smears are A-OK. And also that particular blog entry smacks heavily of the kind of pox-on-both-their-houses disdain that tries to present a false equivalence between the practices of the right and the left, as though the slime-off is really even close. (He's kind of off his rocker by that last paragraph.)

Still. This sucks.
