An interesting quote.

Just throwing this one out there with no comment.

"Observe the process by which we remove some of the most essential American figures of the last century for having failed to corral their sexual organs in the marital bedroom: Roosevelt, gone. Eisenhower, gone. Kennedy, gone. Lyndon Johnson, gone. Clinton, gone. Martin Luther King, Jr., gone. Edward Murrow, gone. Follow the gamboling penis to an arid expanse of sociopolitical wasteland, where many of the greatest visionaries and actors can never tred, a desert in which the Calvin Coolidges and Richard Nixons stand as the tallest totems. Anyone who looks at the history of mankind and thinks that private sexual fidelity exists in direct proportion to political greatness or moral leadership is either a chump or a liar," - David Simon, on the Petraeus affair.
