I’m feeling guilty.
As soon as I read about President Obama’s gaffe on Jay Leno last night, I immediately began to make excuses for him in my head.
Then I had to stop and wonder how I would have felt if John McCain had said the same thing. I know how I would have felt.
I would have been freaking out.
McCain has said far worse, to be sure. And really, we should be judging our officials on their actions, not their words. Particularly words on silly television talk shows.
Still, I feel more than a little uncomfortable about my double standard.
