Why I like Don Surber

This is why I like Don Surber and why I link him often:

After reading the Editorialist’s coverage at the Washington Post of Al Gore’s overuse of electricity, I don’t want to hear about Republican hypocrisy ever again.
If Al Gore were a Republican, the story of his consuming 20 times the national average while lecturing the rest of us on cutting back on our energy use would be front page news from coast-to-coast. Late-nite comedians would have a field day. The editorial pages would puff up about Republican hypocrisy.

Instead we get excuses, excuses, excuses.


This story has been spun into an “attack” on Gore rather than the story of a Junk Food Junkie — an air-conditioned oil millionaire with a zinc mine who preaches one thing while doing another.
WaPo’s Editorialist is not alone in ignoring the hypocrisy.
The Tennessean fell for it. AP fell for it.

As a proud member of the mainstream media, let me suggest that this double-standard — this refusal to hold Al Gore accountable for his actions which are contradictory to his words — only feeds the belief that the media is biased in favor of liberals — particularly born-to-the-manor, overfed, limousine liberals who consume 220,000 kilowatts of electricity each year in just one of his three homes.

I found Don's link via Glenn and I loved his quip even more: Well, look at the kind of people who own newspapers . . . .

The comment was his, the link was mine.
