Sharpton Slip

Al Sharpton has become judge and jury of anyone uttering less than PC remarks about African-Americans as we saw in the Imus debacle. However, which is more offensive - what Imus said about the Rutgers womens basketball team or what Sharpton said recently about Mitt Romney? Sharpton said "As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyway, so don't worry, that's a temporary situation." As Justin Hart writes in American Thinker, Sharpton argues that a non-Christian candidate doesn't believe in God and has no place in politics. How would these comments be recieved had a conservative made them and replaced a Mormon candidate with a Jewish one, or gasp! a Muslim candidate? The hypocrisy is stunning, as is the media bias. Whether you're Ted Kennedy (Chappaquiddick) or Sharpton (Tawana Brawley) it's amazing what you can get away with, as long as you're a liberal.
