"John “Sly” Sylvester worked as a messenger at Foley & Lardner in the early ’80s, where he befriended Feingold and supported his forays into politics, eventually serving on his campaign staff.

"An emotional close friend and campaign advisor to Feingold, John Sylvester, touted the victories the Senator has had throughout his career, but said he wasn't completely surprised by the loss "The economy's bad, people are looking for answers. When you're part of the incumbent party, that happens sometimes." When asked what Feingold meant when he mentioned "the next battle in 2012" Sylvester said "He hasn't made up his mind yet" on what he'll do next. "

Let's listen to Sly again: LINK. How much worse was Rush Limbaugh's ham-fisted joke calling Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute?

Hypocrisy, thy name is foron.

The hypocrisy is in condemning Rush's behavior while keeping silent about Sly's.

There's this one guy in South Dakota who says some bad shit, too.
Nobody here ever condemns his statements. Buncha hypocrites.

Yeah. Let's spend just as much effort slamming a local loudmouth as we do the national one who's getting a bust of himself installed in a state capitol rotunda.

Because you know, they're both having the same effect on America and they have as much money, and all that.

OK, I apologize for not speaking out about Sly's nasty, misogynist comments.

Now you have to apologize for Geraldo's nasty, racist comments about black kids wearing hoodies.

That's how we play this game, right?

So why aren't you speaking out about Geraldo or Vicki? You fuckin hypocrite.

And when you're done with those two, I'll have the rest of the list ready.

I hereby denounce all white male misogynists. HEED MY WRATH!

I'm a little shocked, Meade, about your condoning of Jeffrey Dahmer's cannibalism.

Meade isn't a hypocrite. He's a neanderthal conservative who is too cowardly to take a stand on an issue.
