If you are a Liberal, when it comes to Republicans there is only black and white. While they (Libs), themselves, exist in the gray areas of the world, Conservatives are not allowed that luxury on any issue.
That is the main tactic that they use to try to point out Conservative hypocrisy.
If we’ve attacked Iraq because Hussein was a dictator, we should immediately attack Saudi Arabia and North Korea because they, too, are dictators. Anything else is hypocrisy.
If we haven't led perfect, saintly lives, we have no business speaking of "moral values". Anything else is hypocrisy.
Unless you've been to war, you're unfit to wage (or even speak about) war. Anything else is hypocrisy.
In other words, Conservatives are to be judged by the standard of perfection which no one, least of all Liberals, are able to attain.
On the bright side, it's nice to know that they think so highly of us that they believe we are able to attain perfection.
We judge them using the same standards that we judge anyone else by, because we know that perfection is divine and that man is not divine. Therefore, perfection is unattainable.
So we judge them using the criterion of whether their actions match their words.
When PETA fanatically "defends" the rights of animals and is then caught killing them and throwing the corpses in a dumpster, that is true hypocrisy.
When rich Liberals whine about us working people not giving enough to help the poor, while a small fraction of their combined wealth could put an end to poverty for the next century, that is true hypocrisy.
When the Clintons whine about a "vast right-wing conspiracy" that is trying to ruin them while hiring private investigators and illegally gathering information for the sole purpose of ruining people, that is true hypocrisy.
When they expect President Bush to appoint a "moderate" (i.e. someone who will agree with them most of the time) to the Supreme Court after Bill Clinton appointed former ACLU attorney Ruth Bader Ginsburg (with very little fuss from the Senate, I may add), that is true hypocrisy.
When the Liberals whine about President Bush going to war without U.N. approval in Iraq after President Clinton went to war without U.N approval in the Balkans, that is true hypocrisy.
When virtually every person on this earth, including the liberals, professed to believe that Sadaam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction until a month after the Battle of Baghdad and, when we didn't find any, suddenly turned around and professed that they knew all along that Hussein didn't have any WMD's that's...well...that's insanity.
