Guess! That! Party!: The Lightning Round

This is fucking amazing. It's like they're not even bothering to hide it anymore.

This is a slideshow by ABCNews displaying pictures of 13 politicians caught up in sex scandals.

Check out the big brain on Piglito as he runs it down for us:

ABC News has a slideshow recounting 13 (12 involve elected officials) famous political sex scandals.

The 12 break down thusly: five are Democrats, seven are Republicans.

Of the Dems listed, only one is identified as a Democrat [one out of five].

Of the listed Repubs, six are IDed as Republican. [Six out of seven.]

Media bias quantified.

The one unelected official, incidentally, is explicitly ID'd as a political appointee of President Bush's, so while his nominal party isn't mentioned, hey, they sure make sure you know which team he's playing for, eh?

This is all in our minds, huh, MSM?

It's all accidental, right?

Then why does it keep happening, and why do you stubbornly refuse to make a simple style guide change -- requiring the party ID of any and all politicians caught in scandals upon first mention, in the first paragraph?

It's because you want to preserve your freedom to continue doing this. Only Republican scandals are, in fact, Republican scandals. Democratic scandals are never identified as such, and instead are, in your "nuanced" telling, either scandals of a particular man alone or of "The System" generally.
