‘Our party leaders should stand up against the media’s double standards and refuse to pander to their desire for scandal.’



Text  



The response to the song controversy from Chip Saltsman’s camp is the following statement, and Saltsman’s spokesman indicated they’re not interested in offering further comment. With a war exploding in the Middle East and an economic recession deepening, perhaps the controversy will pass without further comment, perhaps not . . .

Liberal Democrats and their allies in the media didn’t utter a word about David Ehrenstein’s irresponsible column in the Los Angeles Times last March.  But now, of course, they’re shocked and appalled by its parody on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

I firmly believe that we must welcome all Americans into our party and that the road to Republican resurgence begins with unity, not division. But I know that our party leaders should stand up against the media’s double standards and refuse to pander to their desire for scandal.
