122. So, You Only Liked Him Because You Thought He Was Faithful to His Wife?
I guess now he's no longer someone you'd want to have a beer with?

You can blast these asshats (read: ALL politicians, democrat and republican, male and female) for being hypocrites and liars (which they ALL are), but to lose faith in one because he cheated on his wife? There are a lot more important things to worry about than who a politician is sleeping with.

There's a certain type of arrogance inherent in anyone who runs for public office, and this arrogance often manifests itself in a compulsion to fuck around. If people find this morally reprehensible, too bad. An elected official does not owe you fidelity to his/her spouse. They only owe their spouse that, unless the spouse agrees otherwise. And if people are using fidelity as a measure of competence, that's idiotic.

GET OVER SEX, America. Your puerile obsession with who sleeps with who is one of the big factors preventing you from putting your house in order.
