What if they had been republicans?

One of the core ongoing problems I keep having with folks who want to excuse the behavior of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush based upon trying to appeal to something that the democrats did or were alledged to have done, remains that simple straight up problem
But What IF they were Republicans?
wouldn't we want to compare them with say Republicans? or Republican Moral Values? Or Republican Ethical Standards? HUM????

Is that really asking that much? Or are we suppose to be offering quarters in this Kulltur Kampf and admit that they are not really Republicans - that they should not be used as an illustrative standard of Republican Standards - and that they really are Clintonites in Drag and should be held to no higher standard. Since to do that would put their frail male ego's at risk.... That at best they should be held up to the "Special Olympic Ethics Standards" where everyone is a winner simply by being, not by what they actually do.
