Personal Responsibitity a Republican virtue?

Not any more. They will continue to lecture liberals, the unemployed, the sick and the unfortunate about personal responsibility but it's only a virtue for others.

Take e-Meg, the 'buy it now' candidate for Governor in California. She had a tough week. Not only did she employ an illegal immigrant as a maid but she was caught lying about it as well. If she had any decency or common sense she would take a deep breath, accept responsibility and hope she can put it behind her, except that in these times being a Republican means never having to take the blame for anything.

In her second debate with Jerry Brown last night she blamed him for her predicament, saying, "And Jerry, you know you should be ashamed, you and your surrogates ... put her deportation at risk. You put it out there and you should be ashamed for sacrificing Nicky Diaz on the altar of your political ambitions."

Brown replied, "Don't run for governor if you can't stand up on your own two feet and say, 'Hey I made a mistake,' You have blamed her, blamed me, blamed the left, blamed the unions. But you don't take accountability."

Hopefully enough Californians will refuse to buy her brand of bullshit next month.
