Sex scandals

I'm beginning to think all these non-stop revelations of Republican's affairs is a deliberate shock & awe tactic to inure the public to sex scandals prior to the 2010 cycle of elections. They just keep on coming. The latest is yet another abstinence-only GOPer who admits sexing up a 22 year old intern. Comes with a tawdry backstory of domestic violence.

Meanwhile, yesterday's philanderer, Chip Pickering kept a diary of the details of his long term fling with a married woman. So far he's been able to use his family connections to keep it under seal but that could change during the court proceedings. Even juicier, his soon to be ex-wife says the diary names names of "several men who enabled his adulterous trysts and helped him cover his tracks." Not clear how many of them were residents of the C Street den of iniquity. But the real question is, how stupid do you have to be to keep a diary of an extramartial affair?

And new clues to the identity of the mysterious Governor X we heard about earlier. If we're to believe the shock jocks who interviewed the madame today, it's PA Gov. Ed Rendell. Of course that breaks the pattern since he's a Democrat. Maybe it's a bi-partisan strategy.

Of Course Stanley is a rabid proponent of sexual abstinence, gay bashing and the rest of the syndrome that goes with it.

Bipartisan? Sure, they always try to provide a Democrat for every ten Republicans that go wrong, but it's all like Bernie Madoff excusing himself by saying Jean Valjean stole a loaf of bread.

The most vocal moral police are usually the ones that are guilty of commiting the "crime" they condemn.

And GOPers surely win the scandal war, but as long as one Dem is also caught, they will excuse their own. It's all silly but I can't resist looking. Train wreck syndrome I guess.
