No Hypocrisy Here: Patrick Kennedy Really Hates Bad Press Aimed at Democrat Misbehavior

But he wasn't crying when the press went after Mark Foley in 2006 rather than focusing on Iraq. That was sooo four years ago. From Hot Air:

Go figure that a scion of Camelot, who’s lived up to the family legacy in so many ways, would look dimly upon press coverage of politicians’ misbehavior. Funny, but I don’t remember many Democratic complaints about the sustained media swarm over Mark Foley in fall 2006 while Iraq was falling apart. I’m sure there’s an explanation for the difference somewhere.

Hey, when Dems get into tickle fights with staffers, that's no news. When Republicans send questionable texts to underage staffers, that's big news.
