Does that mean it's OK or expected for Democrats to cheat and philander around? Of course not, but it does mean there is sort of a sliding scale of moral turpitude...
Good points rev, and so true. It really makes me sad that the sliding scale you speak of is a fact. I guess I just wish that ALL Americans would hold ALL elected officials to the SAME standards. Even with that, I mean, even among private citiezens, people falter. Affiars happen. Are these elected officials to be held to a HIGHER standard than say, the average American ? I suppose one could make the argument that an affair by an elected official especially at the federal level, can kinda be a black eye to the nation and yes, bring in to question that persons character and the fact how he or she does their job and conducts themselves effects the nation.

But good grief...that kind of thinking is just ridiculous, and I can't deal with that. And the sad part is that there are a whole lot of complete dullards out there who'll eat that up.
If I thought for a second that Representative Kern's views were prevelant in the thinking, speaking, or actions of the Republican party, I would not remain a registered Republican. Period. If I didn't think her views and statements were nothing more than a single, no bigger than a pin point, blip on the radar, I'd be gone. I hear so many on the outside of the Republican party say we need to practice more 'tolerance'. Well, from where I stand, inside, I see tolerance. And as a Republican, I make this vow. I promise not to judge the entire Democrat party on the thinking, speaking, or actions of Nancy Pelosi.
