The Democratic National Convention (DNC) was short on substance, but long on character assassination, which is typical of hypocritical Democrats. They never argue policy, since their policies are indefensible, but simply demonize their dissenters. In the end, the DNC decided to bet Joe Biden's bid for the White House on their excoriation of Donald Trump's character.
Now, if you're looking for sterling character, I'd suggest you look elsewhere, somewhere outside the parameters of present-day politics, since contemporary politicians are, for the most part, corrupt to their core. As incontrovertible proof of this pervading corruption in today's political circles permit me to point out a couple of glaring hypocrisies from this week's DNC.
First, Democrats selected, of all people, Bill Clinton to lecture Donald Trump about his character and conduct in the Oval Office, despite the fact that "Slick Willy" hung his character out to dry in the cloakroom of the Oval Office by turning it into a trysting place with Monica Lewinsky.
Second, when Clinton's sleazy character was uncovered, in spite of his desperate attempts to keep it under wraps, such as lying under oath and perjuring himself, Democrats circled their wagons around "Slick Willy" and insisted to the country that character didn't matter. The only thing that mattered, according to Clinton's exonerators was his excellent policies, not his moral deficiencies.
I've come up with a new name for the Democratic Party—"Beamers." Now, it has nothing to do with cricket or Democrats driving BMWs. Instead, it has to do with the words of our Lord in Matthew 7:3-5. While Democrats are eagle-eyed when it comes to a "mote" in their opponents' eyes, they are as blind as a bat when it to comes to a "beam" in their own eyes. Whereas Bill Clinton's character was de minimis, Donald Trump's is disqualifying, which explains how Democrats could tap "Slick Willy" to take Donald Trump to task for all of Trump's terrible transgressions.
