Pat Robertson (who is an absolute lunatic) has been getting a lot of heat lately for this comment:
"If Chavez expects us to assassinate him, we should."
Yet during the Clinton era senior administration adviser George Stephanopoulos called for the assassination of Saddam Hussein while writing an op/ed piece for Newsweek.
Where was the clucking-of-tongues in the media then? Where was the outrage from the political left when it was one of their guys calling for assassination?
It didn't exist. Why? Because there is a double standard in the media when it comes to Democrats and Republicans. Kind of like how the New York Times was against the filibuster...until Democrats wanted to use it.
