InstaPundit points out that bloggers and pundits are jumping ALL over Pat Robertson for his sleazy connections to, and support of, Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. What he leaves out is that all three of the sources are conservatives, ganging up on an idiotarian conservative. I am still waiting for the left to stage a similar scene. Oh, sure, when Cynthia McKinney accused Bush of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, Joe Lieberman went after her, but for the most part, the left gives their morons a free pass. The whole Trent Lott affair picked up steam after conservative bloggers dogpiled him, and Rick Santorum has been roundly criticised for his statements equating homosexual behavior with incest, bestiality, and polyamory. We've yet to see similar behavior from the left, except for a small group of pro-war liberals such as Meryl Yourish, Charles Johnson, and Laurence Simon, who are truly at home with the term "anti-idiotarian". There's certainly no shortage of big lefty bloggers out there; let's see them go after their idiots with the same vigor that we on the right beat down ours.

UPDATE 14 July/9:30pmTwo more conservative bloggers who've beat on Robertson: Jim Miller and Stephen Green. (Stephen would probably take umbrage at being lumped in with "conservatives", but since he doesn't know I exist, it'll be our little secret).
