With all that has been in the news the last few months, the chickens are coming home to roost for both the Democratic and Republican parties, and their hypocrisy has never been laid more bare. It is easy to divide ourselves along party lines, to call one side good and the other bad. The resistance against the establishment. The imposing Empire versus the scrappy rebels. But increasingly it feels like we're all getting played. Over the last two weeks in particular we've seen two stories unfold that lead me to believe the political class has no line it won't cross to advance its narrative. Over the last couple weeks we've seen two incredible examples of this hypocrisy, and I hope they give other Alabamians and Americans as much pause as they gave me. Let's start with the one that's garnered the most headlines in Alabama over the last month. The allegations against Roy Moore absolutely rocked the state, and despite his regaining some ground in the polls, could still drastically affect the outcome of next week's election. As soon as the accusations came out many commentators, party officials, and politicians on both sides of the aisle began talking a big game about holding Moore accountable. Everyone from Mitch McConnell to Joy Behar quickly lashed out, calling for him to drop out of the race.  The first blow was seeing so many Alabama Republicans who claim to be pro-family, immediately throwing Moore's accusers under the bus.  But when allegations against prominent Democrats Senator Al Franken and Representative John Conyers were revealed in the following weeks the responses from the left were on the whole... a little more concerning. Nancy Pelosi called Conyers an "icon," and while Franken's behavior was called "unacceptable," there have been precious few calls by Democratic leadership for either of them to step down. There were even commentators who said this behavior from Democrats is excusable because politicians on the left "care about people." Bottom line: I don't care how you vote, or what party you claim to be part of, sexual abuse shouldn't be excused. When it comes to rewarding that kind of behavior there is no greater good.  Enough on that, on to issue
