One of the endearing qualities of the Left

Has always been its ability to cry about how petty Conservatives are when they focus on things like birth certificates or where Obama's middle finger was when he scratched his eye.  Then, of course, in response to Rubio's decision to drop out of the race, they have no problems with:

The water bottle.  Wow.  It's been almost a week since I heard them mention that event from years ago.  It reminds me of the famous P-O-T-A-T-O disaster of Dan Quayle.  Even though we were a bunch of non-religious, self-proclaimed liberals, my roommates and I said give a break with the round the clock coverage of that scandal.  The man made a mistake, move on.

Of course we have the famous George H. W. Bush gaff when he said Pearl Harbor was attacked on Dec 7, 1981.  As if he didn't really know the date since he was actually in the war.  Yet the pre-24 hour cable news gave that at least a good weeks' worth of coverage.  And can we forget the jelly bean panic of Reagan's first months in office?  I remember the evening news running a story on the negative example Reagan is setting for kids by having jelly beans on his desk.

But when anyone who does't conform to liberalism makes the slightest gaffe, expect it to go into the chronicles of conservative losers and be brought up time and again for years to come.  Sigh. That is one of the Left's biggest aces up its sleeves.  Do in spades what you cry about others doing at all.

As an added bonus, this little comments section demonstrates what my boys meant when they said Donald Trump is the candidate the Facebook generation deserves.
