There must be something in the Washington DC water. Yet another politician has resigned over inappropriate behavior. It has become so commonplace that it is mentioned briefly in the press, and then gone. The only ones talking about it are the other politicans, glad that it's not them. It will be. Life is a numbers game and their's will come up.
I took a look at the picture of Christopher Lee that he sent to his Craigslist pen pal. Not a bad looking dude.
Eliot Spitzer. The governor of New York visiting hookers on a regular basis, he even has a favorite, Ashley aka Kristen, or is it the other way around?. You know Mrs. Spitzer was pissed, she had just finished redecorating the governor's mansion, and now, they have to move. She went down a notch in my book for standing by him at his press conference. A good swift kick in the nuts was more in order. To embarass your spouse in public is in such poor taste but, he is deeply sorry.
Mark Sanford, what a piece of work. I didn't know the Appalachian Trail went all the way to Argentina. You learn something new everyday. Yes, I am married and have three boys, but she is my soul mate. Please. Mrs. Sanford did give him a swift kick in the nuts as she was leaving. Good for her. She is the one with the money, so good luck shopping at Big Lots Mark. And yes, he is also deeply sorry.
Newt Gingrich. He just makes me ill. While he was cheating on his wife, he was leading the impeachment against Bill Clinton. Pot meet kettle. Again deeply sorry, alcohol involved blah blah blah......
John Edwards. No need to say more. RIP Elizabeth.
Gary Hart. Way back in 1988, he was caught screwing around with Donne Rice. She was not Mrs. Hart. Back in those days, it was a MAJOR scandal and it damn near did him in politically. He was the front runner for the democratic nomination in the 1988 presidential election. Needless to say, after his picture appeared with Donna on his lap, it was over. It was a real shame, he had promise. That's what happens when the little head does the thinking for you. Deeply sorry and still married to Mrs. Hart who has been the recipient of some very expensive jewelry over the years. I made that part up.
Can you imagine how our society would be if everyone who has an affair apologizes and then resigns from their job? We'd be short doctors, plumbers, mechanics, grocery store clerks, etc. Unemployment is already a nightmare. Since most of us are not in the public eye, no one really cares if we are engaged in inappropriate behavior. I also bet more men get a swift kick in the nuts and for that, I am not deeply sorry.
