The difference between the left and the "right"

I wouldn't normally link to Hot Air, but it's worth noting that Allahpundit is surprised lefties are defending Christine O'Donnell in the wake of Gawker's disgusting hit-whoring in publishing a smear piece about O'Donnell's wild night with some anonymous boor in Philly.

Allapundit marvels, "but this is worth blogging anyway for the unusual degree of bipartisan contempt directed at the “scoop” in question."

Well that's the difference between the left and the "right." Lefties will call out misogyny, no matter where it comes from. Conservatives could take a lesson from that in light of the recent events in Kentucky. The left didn't launch into "the bitch deserved it defense" even when the target of the abuse is a political opponent. And Gawker was just stomping on O'Donnell's reputation, not literally on her head.

Saw somewhere on the internet today a post from some prominent right winger saying the Left's defense of O'Donnell "didn't seem genuine."

Wish I could remember where I saw it.

They judge everyone's motives by their own duplicity.
