10. Honorable men and women have feet of clay....in reality and as judged on the Sainthood Spectrum.
Each scandal for "normal, human aberrations" determines the coverup; from petty break-in, enjoying the favors of hot and horny women thrilling at the bedding of powerful men, not-hot, horny and powerful men away from wives seeking companionship and physical/sexual reminders of their power, and those anxious to create their own "star" or book deal or get revenge. (also reverse gender or gay) Which is worse...adultery or unrestrained and financially lucrative revenge?
It sets the bar higher and higher for those willing to risk public service and the potential global exposure and inch-high headlines on the National Enquirer at every grocery waiting line, and internet opinion sites, many vicariously living their own fantasy lives.
Apologetics? No. Reality? Yes. End of the world as we know it? Not in the beginning, but perhaps in the salacious, hypocritical, ass-covering and favor-demanding coverup made necessary by the Victorian Public. They prefer to pay to watch vicariously...tv, movies, internet.
Will the next Saint please come forward to run for public office or public service? Sinners ... past, present or future, need not apply. Those few truly morally qualified and financially capable, consistently decline. Thus, the pay will, by necessity, escalate, and the candidate quality will likely degenerate after each Hanging in the Digital Public Square.
If every person in public service or public office resigned today who has had an affair, tried to get political information on their opponent, watched or downloaded porn, tweeted or IMd or emailed improper private thoughts, or kept silent rather than become a public, political or career scourge, we'd be in a self-righteous and literal world of hurt.
