Democrat hypocrites

Without question, the Democratic Party has become the part of "Do as I say, not as I do." How else to explain putting a tax cheat in charge of tax collection? Or a President who plans to wreck the economy with limits on carbon emissions, who flies 2 747s and a c-17 round trip to Chicago in order to take his lovely wife out for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Whatever else they may be, the Democrats are not the sort of people to lead by example.

Today's most hilarious example of Democrat hypocrisy comes from San Francisco, where Mayor Gavin Newsom banned city departments from buying bottled water, on ecological grounds. The City Insider Blog of SFgate.com reports:

This week, the City Insider spotted an almost empty case of bottled water in the back of Mayor Gavin Newsom's hybrid sport utility vehicle as it was parked in front of City Hall. At least one full bottle of Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water remained under the plastic covering.

This from the mayor who in June 2007 issued an executive order directing city government to no longer purchase bottled water, saying the containers clog landfills while the city owns a pristine reservoir in the Sierra Nevada that produces some of the country's best-rated tap water.

Newsom, a former restaurateur, last year called on the restaurant industry to stop selling bottled water to customers and start serving local tap water instead.

Because of that, the mayor generally declines bottled water at any event or meeting, lest he be photographed with an offending bottle.

The mayor blames his security detail for buying the water. Of course. It's never their own fault, is it?
