Alex in Savantland

Okay, is Alex (the girl on the right) supposed to be politically well informed, or remarkably ignorant?

I do not think it means what they think it means

One thing I’ve been hearing a lot over the past few weeks is that if Senator Larry Craig did indeed solicit sex from an undercover police officer, using various methods of Secret Homosexual Communication, he’s a hypocrite because he’s come out (so to speak) against gays in the military and same-sex marriage and civil unions.

How is this hypocrisy? You can be a smoker and still believe that smoking should be prohibited in public spaces and that taxes on cigarettes are good policy. You can believe that adultery should be illegal, yet nonetheless adult. It may not make you an honorable person, but there’s no hypocrisy there: You’re stating your honest beliefs, even though they might be in your best interests.

A little closer to true hypocrisy would be the fact that while Craig’s fellow Republicans are calling for his resignation, they’re fairly mum about Senator David Vitter’s recently-revealed adventures with a prostitute; though even that wouldn’t be hypocritical if said Republicans are open about the fact they consider homosexual sex to be inherently wrong. They may be homophobes, but that doesn’t make them hypocrites.
