36. Double standard? HOGWASH!
It is only a double standard if you accept a MORAL equivalency between the two candidates and motivations for an endorsement. There is no such equivalency. Bush* has a record of war and death, deception and debt. Kerry doesn't.

If Shilling had said "vote Kerry" I would have been happy. He would have been promoting something beyond his own self interest. By saying "vote Bush*", he was selfishly promoting his own narrow self-interest (a big fat tax cut for rich people like himself).

That is no double standard.
