It's the sex, stupid!!!!!
This Kerik story won't go away. Now I see why.

I'm watching the Countdown, and Olberman is lamenting the resignation. He's wondering how many more juicy stories that are still to come out regarding Kerik's love life.

Washington hasn't had a good-juicy-sex laden scandal since Clinton.

There was also a Washington Post reporter on who looks like he's about to cry.

The media needs sex. Sex breaks open the story. Sex keeps the story going.

Right now it's all Kerik, all the time.

If Chimpy were ever to become embroiled in a sex scandal, his teflon would come flying away.

I'm not sitting around waiting for that to happen.

However, I think it's a sad state of affairs when the only way the press will start digging and doing investigative work is when sex is involved.

1. Interesting.
This is what brought down Jack Ryan as well. So, I guess with this it is not all about party affiliation. It just isn't as interesting when sex is not involved.

2. And let's not forget Clinton and the hoopla
that ensued. It is sad, but I'll take whatever makes the repugs get negative attention.

3. I totally agree
I mean, for such a puritanical society, outraged by sex, the public sure eats up sex scandals

4. sex is nonpartisan and simple
If you bring up a real scandal it gets complicated and hard to explain. You might get accused of bias. A real scandal might implicate the owner of your media outlet or one of its major advertisers. Sex scandals are the easiest and most convenient to cover. It sells papers too.

5. Hmmm...
Sex brings out the media, wolfpack style... other (negative) issues become public... People howl for resignations....

That's it, we need someone to seduce George Bush and go public (with evidence)!

Any volunteers?

15. Personal life vs official business
If you only count the sexual affairs of Kerik, that might be juicy to some, but I could not care less since it has more to do with his PERSONAL life.
It is his total disregard of ethics in relation to his OFFICE that I find so blatantly offensive.
Allegedly using the apartment that was donated to the firefighters for 9/11 for illicit sexual liasons is offensive for obvious reasons.
If he had his trists somewhere else, I could give a hang.

17. The Pugs set the precedent
by dogging Clinton's personal life since 1992. Now the Pandora's box is open and it's open season on intertwining personal sex lives with politics...the box is not going to close anytime soon.

As for the Pugs, it's now one of their own. They should STFU and take the heat.

19. It's the media, stupid
the media is sad and sensational. What gets the newspapers flying of the shelf quicker than talks of blowjobs, affairs, wardrobe malfunctions, and chopped off reproductive organs.
