35. While it's true we have our bad boys (and girls)
I think the main difference is that unlike the Puke Party, we don't hold ourselves out to be party of "family values" or the defenders of the "sanctity of marriage." We don't wag our fingers at people telling them what awful sinners they are while secretly cheating on our spouse.

In other words: It's the hypocrisy!

As for your little list, well, they had Ted Bundy so that kinda cancels out Gacy. And like Gacy, neither Michael Skakel nor William Kennedy Smith held elective office. As for the other three, I don't know anything about them but again, the point is not so much about bad deeds, but about the enormous HYPOCRISY that accompanies them.
