Jeff Poor actually spends an entire March 24 MRC Culture & Media Institute article complaining that the media "applied two different standards" to Joe Biden's and Dick Cheney's 2004 use of the F-word on the Senate floor directed at Patrick Leahy.
It seems not to have occurred to Poor that Biden used the F-word in excitement and celebration, while Cheney used it in hate and anger, intended as a deliberate insult to a sitting senator. Is Poor really not able to tell the difference between the two?
Speaking of double standards...
We looked in the MRC archive to see what it had written on Cheney's F-bomb at the time. The answer: Nothing. Zip, zero, nada. Even the notorious prudes at the MRC couldn't get worked up over it.
If the MRC gave Cheney a pass then, it has no moral authority to complain about Biden now.
