Because not all of us are diddling kids. I'll say my piece on the kid-diddling now. Try them, if guilty lock them up and beat them with broom handles or whatever, I don't care. Hell is too good for kiddy diddlers. If found innocent then WTF happened? How did the charges get brought, was it a sham to shame them? In cases of pedophilia there are so many out there that feel so strongly on the issue that they get overheated with the emotion and are ready to get the stoning blocks ready. When people are found innocent there should be a little more investigation as to why the charges were brought and the circumstances of the case. Pedophilia is the most heinous of black marks on a person's record so if they're innocent that should be given proper consideration as well.
Now, on to the hypocrisy bit. I, and most folks...I hope, don't have this skeleton in the closet and I dare say that these folks constitute an infintesimal portion of the GOP and I am offended at the premise that somehow I (being a GOP'er) am being tossed into the same basket as these f!ckwads. It pisses me off. I don't support, condone, or otherwise accept this kind of behavior. Let me make this even clearer, should I be lumped in with this group by any assertion that these **** stains ARE the GOP and that they represent the values and ideaologies that I hold I will not accept it. I will be pissed, and I rarely get pissed. The difference between the liberal left and myself is that the liberal left wants to "understand" the life situation that led to this behavior...I just need to know that the act was commited to justify kicking every one of their f!cking teeth down their throat, gouging out their eyballs with a coathanger and smashing their balls in a vice...how's that for understanding?
Clearly, no conservative has refuted the list Spider posted. It does not look "infinitesimal" to me.
IMO, what is needed is for their own party to start expressing outrage and demanding recalls and prosecutions. If it pisses you off, have you written to any GOP offices to express that sentiment? Until American citizens do that, things are not going to change... and face it, the GOP will give more weight to the opinions of its own voters than to Dems.
