Welcome to Double Standardland

The double standard being applied to Tom Corbett's flip flop on the NCAA sanctions is breathtaking. His critics should recall their lack of outrage over the many political u-turns committed by the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

My print column is up.

UPDATE: In a column about gun control, Mark Tapscott quotes Thomas McCauley's observation about there being "no spectacle so ridiculous as the British public in one of its periodical fits of morality."

McCauley's observation could be applied to American media types as well, as they continue to spaz out over the Sandusky scandal, surrendering reason and perspective to emotional demands for greater and greater punishment for people who had little or nothing to do with real crime.
