Hip Hypocrisy.

This reminds me of Peter Schweizer's excellent book, Do As I Say, Not As I Do. Schweizer's book contains highly entertaining recitations of mind-boggling liberal hypocrisy. (In fact, now that Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House, we should dust off his profile of her.) But beyond mocking liberals, Schweizer makes a more profound point: when conservatives act in a hypocritical manner, violating their own principles, they go astray and screw up their lives. When iberals, on the other hand, act hypocritically, they usually are also acting reasonably. They find their principles hard to follow in their own lives in part because their principles are wrong.

Yes, the Powerline Blog is addressing John Edward's Wal-Mart purchase. What's the problem John? It must be great to be loaded to not have to worry about being thrifty, huh? Anyway, what happened may reak of hypocrisy or you may blame some young member of your staff, but most people really don't care. After all, who is hurt? Your life & career are not over because of this are they? In fact, you did what most of your constituents do on a daily basis purchase items at Wal Mart.
