  • Republican Hypocrites:

  • Christine O'Donnell-

    "I dont celebrate Halloween because of what it means. Because it is a Satanic holiday. It is a Pagan holiday. And while people are going around getting free candy, other people are falling victim to human sacrifices and things like that. I mean, that's the reality of whats going on on Halloween."

  • The Hypocrisy:


  • U.S Representative Mark Foley-

    "If I were, uh, one of these sickos, I'd be, uh, nervous with America's Most Wanted on my trail."

  • The Hypocrisy:

    As the chairman of the House Caucus on missing and exploited children, and one of the foremost opponents of child pornography in the Senate, Foley found himself in the center of a scandal in which he was accused of sending sexually explicit e-mails to underage boys. Source

  • Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Former time-traveling cyborg, grenade thrower, snake-god killer and current respectable Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger has the time and inclination to protect our kids from experiencing violent imagery. Source

  • The Hypocrisy:

    Ironically, we all know that Schwarzenegger has starred in over 25 movies and in those movies, has ended the life of countless people.

  • George W. Bush-

    On Stem Cell Research. Source

  • The Hypocrisy:

    On The Death Penalty. Source

  • Democratic Hypocrites:

  • Bill Clinton-

    "I did not have sexual relations with that woman..."

  • The Hypocrisy:

    "Indeed I did have a relationship with Ms. Lewinsky that was not appropriate."

  • John Edwards-

  • The Hypocrisy:

    John Edwards, Presidential candidate, VP candidate and Senator, had sex with a campaign consultant while his wife was dying of cancer, and then lied. And he still won't take a paternity test to prove Rielle Hunter's child "isn't his." Source

  • Al Gore-

  • The Hypocrisy:

    Public records reveal that as Gore lectures Americans on excessive consumption, he and his wife Tipper live in two properties: a 10,000-square-foot, 20-room, eight-bathroom home in Nashville, and a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Va. (He also has a third home in Carthage, Tenn.) For someone rallying the planet to pursue a path of extreme personal sacrifice, Gore requires little from himself. Source

  • Eliot Spitzer-

    As attorney general, Eliot Spitzer signature issue was pursuing Wall Street misdoings and prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the states organized crime task force. As we all know, Spitzer was later caught meeting with prostitutes himself. Source
