Expect that kind of reaction from the media whatever Republicans do in the 112th Congress. My latest American Spectator column:

Even before they were sworn into office, Republican freshmen in the 112th Congress had already shocked the political press corps in the nation’s capital.
A group of the incoming GOP representatives scheduled a fundraiser with country singer LeAnn Rimes as the star attraction and this event was treated by Politico reporters Ken Vogel and Marin Cogan as the biggest scandal since Teapot Dome.
How dare those Republicans try to raise money to get themselves re-elected?
This kind of ginned-up controversy typifies the political double standards that suffuse the work of America’s political journalists. Anything can be portrayed as scandalous as long as it involves Republicans, because the GOP is presumed to be The Party of Wrong and Evil. Yet no Democrat’s words or deeds, not even the most heinous crime, can ever qualify as evidence that the Democratic Party is anything but a force for all that is Good and Right. . . .

Read the whole shocking thing.

How dare Republicans host a concert by notorious bikini-wearing Leann Rimes? There are even scandalous rumors that Republicans may keep their promise to repeal ObamaCare. Shocking!
