Has the liberal media gone barking mad?
One would think so after reading some of the liberal pap about G.W. Bush's innocent rub administered to the neck of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Like the story in the San Francisco Chronicle (''Bush Gropes, Planet Cringes'') found at http://sfgate.com/columnists/morford/
Good heavens, the president was simply comforting an American ally with a little conservative compassion.
Cowboy diplomacy, not erotic arousal, was W's intent.
But to some media, Bush's gentle touch bordered on sexual assault, worthy of a bill of impeachment, or at the very least, induction into the Executive Wing of Nancy Pelosi's Culture of Corruption.
These are the same media types that gave Bill Clinton a free pass when Slick essentially turned the White House into his personal harem, and committed perjury about having "....sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinski."
Where was the liberal outrage when Juanita Broderick, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willey accused Clinton of' unwelcome advances, some bordering on criminal behavior?
But once again, there IS a wholly unfair double standard that the media applies when reporting or opining about Republicans and Democrats.
To say that W simply ''rubs some people the wrong way'' is to deny the intensity of the Bush hatred among liberal media.
John W. Lillpop is a recovering liberal.
