Jim Geraghty: Say, I Notice This Rule Against Attacking Politicians' Children Has an On-Again, Off-Again Quality That Cycles Every Four or Eight Years

Can't really add a thing to this.

About a year ago, the Washington Post ran a piece blasting Elizabeth Lauten, then the communications director for Rep. Stephen Lee Fincher, for a Facebook Post that criticized Obama’s daughters. The Post wrote several stories on Lauten, the paper' "social justice reporter" dug into Lauten's writings for her college newspaper, and Chris Cillizza declared she had "the worst week in Washington." This week, that same Washington Post posted a cartoon depicting Ted Cruz’s daughters – aged five and seven – as trained monkeys.

I'm glad people are talking about that incident. I had forgotten about it myself, and it's a proof of the media's double standard so damning they refuse to even attempt to explain the different treatment of the two cases.

They just clam up and refuse to talk -- you know, like criminals caught red-handed.
