False Equivalency Awesomeness

DougJ at Balloon Juice nails this:
What I’ve learned over the past few days is that both sides do it. Whether it’s a left-leaning writer using the phrase “curb-stomping” or an angry mob of conservatives actually performing a curb-stomping, whether it’s a liberal drawing a Hitler mustache on George W. Bush or a right-wing militia member blowing up a federal building, whether it’s two black guys in berets standing outside a polling station or a hundred years of Jim Crow laws. It’s all the same stuff and we should just admit it.
It feels like anytime something happens that's bad for conservatives, the media spends more time trying to find something similar on the Democratic side so they can play this game, rather than actually investigating what happened.

I'm not sure what it will take to stop this type of dishonesty, but it really has to change.
