When hypocrisy isn't

Head over to Myrhaf's blog to find out why calling the seemingly hypocritical actions of our powerful "public servants" are nothing of the sort. Do you think Nancy Pelosi's use of millions of dollars of Air Force flights and lavish bar tabs at taxpayer expense is hypocrisy? Myrhaf says of our elected Platonists:
Instead of calling it hypocrisy, I think it would be better to point out that our rulers' actions are perfectly moral by their premises. They get to live by their own special rules. That's the way statism works, and that's the way it will be until we restore freedom in America.
Read the whole thing, and don't miss the last line. Damn, that's a good summation of the issue.
