If we were to do the Pepsi challenge and decide one party is “better” than another, I think we’d have trouble – obviously aside to particular issues that interest an individual. It’s often difficult to differentiate the two since both parties are political machines often beholden to special interests. There’s nothing that makes a Republican inherently more corrupt than a Democrat. There’s nothing to say that Republicans have greater morals than Democrats and so on and so forth.
And yet there is one major difference I believe between the two. Republicans have no sense of hypocrisy. It’s not to say that the Democrats couldn’t be hypocritical. They just aren’t.
Take for instance this ridiculous notion that Obama has sullied the office of the President by not wearing a jacket in the oval office. A Democrat would never make such a claim knowing that it would quickly be disproved. Or pointing out that the opposition needs a teleprompter as if no politician in the history of politicians ever used a teleprompter. Or wearing a flag pin. No Democrat in their right mind would criticize someone for not wearing a flag pin while not wearing a flag pin.
Is it lack of reflection? Is it a complete disconnect between fact and reality?
