Nope, no double standard here, folks. Just move along.

September 2nd, 2008

The press apparently thinks that the HUSBAND of a Vice Presidential nominee getting arrested for driving under the influence when he was 22 is a bigger problem than an actual candidate for President admitting he smoked pot and did cocaine at about the same age.

Well, cialis sale capsule just as long as we hold everyone to the same standard.

    Oh, I thought you were going to bring up GWB’s drunk driving thingie. Or his Daddy’s.

    Sorry. Carry on.

    As someone who thinks drugs ought to be illegal… there is a technical difference as long as Obama never drove a car while under the influence of pot or cocaine. But overall… you make the correct point.

    And when I say “illegal”… I ment legal. Stupid Tuesday morning after a long weekend.

    I know what you mean, Nick.

    It’s sort of a toss up to me.

    Driving drunk is ridiculously dangerous and pisses me off.

    Of course, my guess is I could have been charged with it a few times in my 20s, too.

    And Palin has said that she tried marijuana and “didn’t like it.” So I guess that’s all cleared up now.
