There's a word for it... it starts with "hyp..."

After Trent Lott was booed at the Wellstone memorial, blame was cast upon the organizers of the event and their motives.

When Hillary Clinton was booed at a 9/11 function, blame was cast upon the Senator, herself. The heckers did nothing wrong. For verification, look here, here, here, or here.

Which is it going to be? You can't pretend to be on a moral high-road -- stake a claim for class and decorum and values -- only when it's personally beneficial. Either both booings were wrong or neither of them were (I say both). There's a word for that. But, I suppose that talking down the Wellstone memorial will get votes for Coleman, and that's all that matters.
