    Put it up and then let's go through it and see all the "family values" publically and loudly religious Democrats who make a point of proudly telling the press about their teetotaling that have been busted for drunk driving over the last 10 years or so.  I'm interested in your list.

      Are we judging him for drinking and driving or for claiming to not drink and then lieing?  

      •  Both, of course. (4+ / 0-)

        One is risking the death of innocent lives, and the other is political hypocrisy.  Either one is begging for commentary from DKos.

        When extra-terrestrial beings make their first appearance on our planet, and ask for representatives of our species to best exemplify humanity, I'm sending a nurse, a librarian, and a firefighter.

        drinking and driving as I've had that problem in the past.  However, I'm not a loudly religious mormon bishop who has made a point of telling people that I don't drink, nor am I politically concerned with other people's "family values" as this guy's voting record indicates he is.  I'd have no problem forgiving him for making a mistake if he weren't so hypocritical.
