Tis okay for me, but not for thee.

Why is it that Newt Gingrich was criticized in 1994, when he accepted a $4.5 million advance for his book "To Renew America" and ultimately ended up returning the advance because of political pressure, but Hillary received $8 million in advance for her memoirs and now Teddy Kennedy is reportedly getting over $8 million for his memoirs?

Why the double standard?

  • Uh...

    a. because Newt is a Republican and Hillary and Teddy are Democrats?

    b. because Newt is a Conservative and Hillary and Teddy are Liberals?

    c. Because the MSM is biased?

    d. because Newt's book was a selfish vehicle to advance American culture while Hillary and Teddy's books were selfless chronicles of their personal contributions to the greatness of America?

    e. because Newt is heartless while Hillary and Teddy are compassionate?
