Contempt is in the Eye of the Beholder

This cool quote popped up on the Instapundit ticker today....
“If only the media had as much contempt for lying, thieving, corrupt politicians as they do for sports stars who use steroids.”
Given today's roiling political environment, and the media that abets the Democrats that run the political machine and ignores their vices and scandals, it seems like a very apt quote.

But if you track the links all the way back to its inspiration, the lying, thieving, corrupt politicians that aren't held in contempt by the media are not Rangel, Dodd, Pelosi, geithner, and the Chicago Machine, but...George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, and Rudy Giuliani.

Apparently Duncan Black, writer of the Eschaton blog, must have been hitting the Ambien a little too hard over the last several years. The media didn't show contempt for W, Cheney and Palin? YGTSM.....

Of course the explanation for all this lies in the disclaimer at the bottom of his posts:

I am glad we cleared that up....

UPDATE: Forgive for not knowing that Duncan Black was actually 'Atrios'....I never read his stuff...for good reason....
