The nominees for The IOKIYAR Award (for Brazenness or Hypocrisy) are...
- Brian Williams Likes Barack Obama - I don't recall similar concerns when Chris Matthews was gushing about President Bush, as he landed on the aircraft carrier to declare: Mission Accomplished!
- Defining "There" - Mallard calculus...Important: Decades old Clinton word parsing. Not Important: current Bush Administration unwillingness to define what "torture" is.
- Concern Trolling - Falsely conflating the Democratic Primary process with voter suppression (to express grave concern over the treatment of Hillary Clinton!) while ignoring actual voter suppression from Republicans.
- Nepotism - Mallard calculus...Important: Hillary Clinton being Bill Clinton's wife. Not Important: President Bush being President Bush's son.
- Guilt by Association - On one hand, ascribing guilt by association with Rod Blagojevich to President Lincoln would be crazy. On the other hand, did you know Rod Blegojevich and President Obama are both from Illinois? It's true, you can look it up on Conservapedia.
