Answer one or both, Answer them here or wherever you want.
If you support Governor Doyle's rather substantial set of tax increases, are you bothered by the fact that he ran for reelection by promising not to raise taxes? Circumstances change, but they probably haven't even disconnected the phone at campaign headquarters.
If you support the Regents' adoption of "holistic admissions" including granting persons preferential treatment on the basis of race, are you bothered by the fact that it is clearly illegal? Does the fact that you like a policy (or think the law is a bad one) mean that you don't care if people who are sworn to uphold the law enact that policy by acting as if the law did not exist?
Don't answer by pointing to what you believe are similar acts by conservatives. I am sure you can find them, but they ought to be dealt with on their own terms. Can you defend the Governor's tax proposals and the Regents' policy on any basis other than "everybody does it"?
