More evidence of a double standard?
"...from the Democratic leadership in Congress to allegedly anti-Semitic remarks made by Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) compared to their outcry over racially insensitive remarks last year by then-Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.)."
Moran's comments are "allegedly anti-Semitic", but Lott's were "racially insensitive".
It seems that when it comes to Democrats that blatant anti Semitism is "alleged". But assigned interpretations of a Republican's comments make them "racially insensitive". They can't even write about a double standard without insinuating a double standard of their own!

Again, I say: It's time to quit putting people on the cross -- Democrats AND Republicans -- for things they say about race and ethnicity. Save the "outrage" for those rare occasions of true hate speech.
Quit worrying about "double standards," and stick to principles. (Of course, maybe your principle truly is that Americans should by hypersensitive and politically correct.)
