Neither side has cornered the market on hypocrisy. The conservative kind embarrasses me, because that’s my team and I can’t defend it. The liberal variety, on the other hand, makes me laugh — at them, not with them.
Remember the suburban New York newspaper, the Journal News – the paper that printed the names and addresses of area residents with gun permits? Well, the Journal News got a lot of flak for their anti-gun stunt, a lot of phone calls and emails that the paper found threatening.
So what did the Journal News do in the face of so much criticism? It hired security guards to protect its offices and its employees. Security guards … with guns.
Get it? The journalists at the newspaper believe that guns are bad if they protect you … but they’re good if they protect the people at the Journal News – even though they don’t like guns.
