It's appalling if their guy does it

In an unsigned editorial today, the NY Times writes that,
it would be appalling to suggest that terrorists were rooting for one side or another in this race.
The reference is to a recent comment by Dick Cheney, a known supporter of Bush.

Where was the outrage of the Times editorial writers when Times columnist Paul Krugman, a known hater of Bush, wrote,
In reality, all infidels probably look alike to the terrorists, but if they do have a preference, nothing in Mr. Bush's record would make them unhappy at the prospect of four more years.
