Why I'm a Republican
This is reason one of one hundred, at least, reasons why I'm a republican. Read the first paragraph of this article. There was no shame on the part of the media to identify the party affiliation of the aggressor. I think of this as a good thing because I want to know what my representatives are up to, and I might not ever find out if they're Democrats. In order to compare, I Googled William Jefferson because there was a piece about him on the Cox home page recently. I picked the very first one and this is it. Strangely absent in this article is a party affiliation. OK, so there is a capital D-La in the second paragraph. Thinking that perhaps I was being a little too biased, I selected the next of the Googled Articles. The word Democrat was displayed predominately in this one, but I get the feeling as I read the article that he is a victim of partisan politics. Read the first few paragraphs here and try to imagine a similar article on Tom Delay. But I see this as ultimately a good thing because I am under no illusions that just because a politician has an R after his name he is a good politician. If Democrats know the same thing about their representatives, if would be difficult to determine how. But because of the media's eagle eye on Republicans we hear about it if one sneezes. This is as it should be and I say again one of many reasons I'm a Republican.
