Um, I don't get it. You're just as bad. So are you saying liberals and conservatives really aren't all that different?

From what I've seen (if you mean Democrat=Liberal) you're full of shit. The Republicans and Fox Republican mouthpieces are almost all disgraced from improper behaviors yet keep their base.
Many should be introduced as Liar, Thief, War-Criminal and/or Constitutional violators (ironically enough,pledge-breakers)

Do you actually have someone in mind,themuzicman? Or is this crap coming out of your mouth because your arse is blocked?

Yea, not true. What we rail against is the hypocrisy , you dumb ass. When an asshole like Larry Craig sponsors anti-gay legislation because Jesus told him homos are going to hell then is caught sucking dicks in airport restrooms we have a problem with it. This is opposed to a guy like Governor McGreevey who, while he hid his sexuality (because of bigots like you), never once stood on a soap box and told others that being gay was a ticket to everlasting damnation.
If you can't see the difference between those things then you aren't worth talking to.

"When liberals are presented with evidence that one of THEIR guys has been bad, they attack the source and do whatever they can to keep them in power, in spite of crimes committed."
You don't know we Brits vewwy well! You've never heard of satirical TV comedy series like "Have I Got News For You" and "Mock The Week".
Those you'd regard as 'Liberals' savagely ripping the piss out of anyone. Including other 'Liberals'.
They've taken the piss out of previous Labour prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Since late 2008 there's been a few digs at Barack Obama, but mostly in an affectionate and ironic way (which he'd probably laugh at, he being the intelligent American he is, who along with all other intelligent Americans recognise the concept of irony.
And are thick-skinned to shrug off the slings & arrows of outrageous fortune like everyone else). But mostly because he's not Dumbya, the richest source of satirical comedy & parody in recent years.
Post-Obama, you wouldn't believe how such programmes - to say nothing of the rest of the satirical media (newspapers, radio, magazines like "Private Eye" etc) have torn apart Sarah Failin & her right-wing ilk.
But then, those on the Left are intelligent enough to know not
to get mixed up in the sorts of things that warrant such attacks. To my knowledge, Richard Dawkins has been shown in a very
positive light. Mainly due to the fact he knows what he's talking about (certainly more than your average comedian* & tabloid journalist/editor; he is a scientist after all), and - as long as he doesn't do the sorts of things 'celebs'/politicians get up to - there's not much scope for satire and tabloid/character annihilation. Tom Hanks and George Clooney? They walk on water. They're untouchable.
The GOP, Repubicans, Teabaggers, Religious Right et al, on the other hand however...:
And one on a continuous loop, P.R.-wise, via everything they say, do and think.
*- The exception being the Irish comedian Dara O'Briain. He has a degree in theoretical physics.
