Double Standard

Democratic senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin are screeching about Bill Frist’s plan to speak at a–gasp!–church about Democratic obstructionism over judicial nominees. I’d take their concerns more seriously if they had raised even a peep about the numerous partisan visits to churches over the years by fellow travelers such as Jesse Jackson, Bill Clinton, and John Kerry. When Democrats do it, it’s called voter education. When Republicans do it, it’s called a dangerous mingling of church and state. If it really is dangerous (and label me skeptical), then let’s have both parties sign a pledge to stay out of the pulpit. Are you interested, Mr. Reid?
