The Dog Trainer‘s slime job on Arnold may create some interesting opportunities to see hypocrisy on display. I am particularly interested to see if Bill Clinton fans will turn purple with outrage over a guy who engaged in some groping.

While we’re talking hypocrisy, somebody ask the folks at the Dog Trainer why it’s fair game to run stories about Arnold’s treatment of unidentified women — but not similarly sourced stories about Gray Davis’s physical abuse of his employees, including “hurling of phones and ashtrays at quaking government employees and his incidents of personally shoving and shaking horrified workers.” Jill Stewart, a former Dog Trainer reporter, has not only written about this, but has said that the Times was aware of the stories and didn’t run them because the sources would not identify themselves. Double standard? You make the call.
