Chris Dodd, Dem poster boy

Thomas Lifson
The New York Post reviews the "cavalcade of scandal" surrounding Connecticut senator Christopher Dodd, implicitly raising the question: why haven't the Republicans made him the daily target of corruption charges? If ever there were a poster boy for Democrat Senate corruption and involvement in the financial meltdown, it is Chris Dodd. Barney Frank, a singularly unappealing man, can lead the House contingent.

Andrew Breitbart, writing in the Washington Times, supplies a partial answer: Conservatives play by different, far more genteel, rules.

The right, for the most part, embraces basic Judeo-Christian ideals and would not promote nor defend the propaganda techniques that were perfected in godless communist and socialist regimes. The current political and media environment crafted by supposedly idealistic Mr. Obama resembles Hugo Chavez's Venezuela more than John F. Kennedy's America.

The Huffington Post, Daily Kos and other left-leaning sites benefit from the right's belief that there are rules and decorum in political debate and civic engagement. Of course, every now and then, a curious right-winger will go in and engage in discussion at a left-wing site, but rarely under purely disingenuous and mass coordinated means.
