When it comes to petty crimes and ethics violations, what is the difference between Democrats and Republicans?
Democrats are expected to commit them, so when they are caught and exposed, they try to lie their way out of it, often with lame, childish excuses, and hang on to their jobs for dear life.
Republicans are expected not to commit them, so when they are caught and exposed, they say "I did a bad thing" and then they resign.
Of course, there are some exceptions to this rule. Duh.
We have lost some good Republicans and been stuck with some bad Democrats because of this double standard.
