So Much For Principle On The Left

February 2nd, 2007 1:46 AM

One would think there'd be outrage all around on the Left given reports of a sitting female Democrat Representative allegedly being called a whore by the chairman of a caucus. But look around, there's hardly a peep from the Left.

The mainstream media hasn't exactly gone out of its way to carry the story either. A search for Sanchez's name at Google News produces an insulting 150 or so links.

Note to Representative Sanchez, next time someone calls you a whore, make sure it's a Republican. Otherwise it seems such things simply aren't news.

Rep. Loretta Sanchez has quit the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, accusing the chairman, Rep. Joe Baca, of telling people she's  a "whore."

Baca denied the charge.

In an interview with The Politico Wednesday, Sanchez, a California Democrat as is Baca, also cited concerns about whether Baca was properly elected Hispanic Caucus chairman in November and about his general attitude toward female lawmakers. The caucus represents 21 Hispanic Democrats in Congress.
