John Cole at Balloon Juice has a solid piece on The Senate Taken Hostage: the Richard Shelby story

Not familiar with the acronym Cole uses to close his piece and I appropriated for the header?

Its Okay If You're A Republican, which appears to be the motto not only wingnuts everywhere but a significant portion of the--wait for it--Liberal Media Elite. Dems get regularly lambasted for stuff the Repugs do without a murmur.

Think I'm exaggerating? Consider that serial mind-changer John McCain remains a "man of honor" and one of the most frequent guests on the Sunday Morning gasbag shows despite his gaffes, angry outbursts and basic irrelevance, not a single one of the Repugs caught up in truly tawdry sex scandals has resigned his post and Newt Gingrich is considered a potential GOP presidential candidate and Dick Cheney is not in prison somewhere.

I rest my case.
