Douglas Murray muses:

“It has become a staple of US election coverage that any Democrat’s foreign policy fumble is a ‘mis-speak’ while any Republican saying something even mildly contentious – as opposed to wrong – is a world-class clanger which shows them to be unfit for office.”

    That’s bullshit. Kerry was absolutely marmalised (“for it before I was against it” anyone?) and things like his war record were dragged through the mud even though he was a hero and Dubya had managed to get out of active front-line service.

    We were totally incensed that Bob Woodward’s new book on Obama’s domestic record was not praising him as lavishly as we are doing, so we invited him to report to us on our flagship Toady Programme.
    It appears we did not win any brownie points from him, but hey, did you hear our comrade James The Red Naughty have a go at the Republican Party this morning? – we will get hold of Jimmy Carter’s grandson later to interview him as to how he revealed Romney’s speech to Mother Lode

    Except when a Democrat says such it normally is a genuine mistake; whereas with a Republican it’s either a sign of their ignorance or an inadvertent revealing of their true policies.

    Just ignore the disparity of the two parties regarding context or the sheer level of mis-speak and just start whining that these nasty liberals are picking on us (except of course when Fox News bashes the Democrats in which case it’s fair game and quite justified).

David Cameron drug policy reformer and leadership contender in 2005…

“Politicians attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator by posturing with tough policies and calling for crackdown after crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.”

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
