Better Do A Doubletake

"Waak told the Denver Post that the vandalism, allegedly carried out by a former Democratic canvasser and who left behind an anti-health care reformer poster, was "an effort on the other side to stir up hate." After learning about alleged vandal's political past, Waak told the newspaper that "there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum." [link]

Notice how instead of offering an apology for a false allegation the tone changes. What type of reaction would Waak have had had the alleged perpetrator belonged to something other than the Democratic party?
