In the words of the ever insightful Ann Coulter of how republicans are treated. She compared them to the treatment of women. A woman has to prove themselves just to show they have what it takes. Republicans as well as women have to constantly prove they are smarter by doing and saying the right or smart thing. They have to be quicker to stay one step ahead of the critiques that know are about to come and they have to be better "in theory" because of the hostile environment and the attack dogs just sitting in wait for a gaffe or a misstep.
Unlike the treatment of democrats who are hailed as the intellects who know best and are so smart . Regardless of a democrat's blunders,inabilities or crazy shouting rants the adoring serve and protect media will always be on the side lines with their pom-poms.
So the next time the left wing media hawks call the republican candidates "shallow","clowns" or some other unfounded attack,we also know that 'they' are the only ones getting "thrills" up their legs for their democrat heroes, and that they are also chauvinist pigs~!
