Hypocrisy Alert!

Times like these, I wish I could emulate Ben Tribbett's wig-flipping Larry Sabato.

It seems that some in the far Left moonbatosphere are up in arms over radio talk-show host Bill Cunningham's reference --- in warming up a crowd for John McCain, who limp-wristedly disassociated himself from the comment --- to the leading Democrat presidential contender as "Barack Hussein Obama." They don't like the fact that someone is using his full name.

'Course, they don't mind referring to the former junior Senator from Virginia as George Felix Allen, which was part and parcel of the Virginia Democrats'/Jim Webb campaign's attacks on the former Senator.

Feel the love ... er, hypocrisy, on Cobalt 6, here and here.

Not that it would make any difference at this point, but one might take the criticism more seriously if it were accompanied by an apology to Senator Allen. As Byron York observed at the Corner on National Review Online, "Perhaps if they had criticized the whole George Felix Allen thing, they might have more credibility."

'Course, the boys and girls over at Ranting Kids ... er, Raising Dough, ... er, "Raising Kaine" have pointedly not lept to Cunningham's defense.

There are at least a few non-hypocrites out there.
