Breathtaking Hypocrisy

| 1 Comment
Hypocrisy is common in politics and especially in the highly contentious issues we deal with.  Yet once in a while there comes along an instance that takes the breath away from even the most jaded.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has opened up a wide lead in the race for Hypocrite of the Year for 2015.  An AP story on today's decision concludes with these paragraphs:

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy issued a statement Thursday saying those who have been on death row will spend the rest of their lives in state prisons with no possibility of freedom.

"Today is a somber day where our focus should not be on the 11 men sitting on death row, but with their victims and those surviving family members," he said. "My thoughts and prayers are with them during what must be a difficult day."

If your focus had been on the victims and surviving family members, Gov. Malloy, you would have vetoed the damned bill, as Gov. Rell did before you.  You are solidly on the side of the murderers against the victims and you very well know it.

Malloy did what he did and, unlike some other governors, told the people he would as he was running for the office.  But to invoke the victims on this day and say we should focus on them when he is the one who sabotaged their hopes for justice, that is just gratuitously rubbing salt in the wounds.  This statement is beyond despicable.

Like I always ask, what is it about Democrat politicians and capital murderers?
