When you post something said by a 'liberal' which deserves analogous condemnation, I'll be happy to join in. When you post it only as a reaction (and attempt at deflection) to something a conservative said, I'm going to ignore it.
In the meanwhile, forget about the mythical 'double standard'. It doesn't exist.
