Right. And Democrats never make any odd statements at all.
I find it amusing that the paper holds up Sharron Angle as the paradigmatic example of a candidate who says oddball things:
Who is she running against? Ah yes, Harry Reid. The guy who said that you can “literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol” in summertime?
Reid is also the guy who declared Obama could win because he is “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect.”
Reid is the guy who declared Justice Thomas to be “an embarrassment to the Supreme Court,” claiming that one of Thomas’s opinions was similar to “an eighth-grade dissertation.” It was far inferior, Reid said, to the opinion of Justice Scalia in the same case. Except that Scalia hadn’t even written an opinion in the case.
Reid has compared opposition to ObamaCare to support for slavery; has decried a Supreme Court decision upholding a partial birth abortion ban that he had voted for; and has justified his vote against John Roberts by saying: “I’m not too sure if his heart is as big as his head.”
Oh — and if we were going to look at actual issues of honesty, as opposed to goofy statements, we could always remind people of Harry’s dirty land deals (which were actually exposed due to the good work of this newspaper, so they certainly know about them).
Or, we could just pretend that Republicans are the only people who say goofy things and write a big article about it.
