  •  Thought experiment (6+ / 0-)

    Let's do a thought experiment.  Imagine, first, that he was a Democrat as opposed to a Republican.  The screams of outrage would be so loud as to be deafening, and he would have been soundly defeated at the polls.  Second, and more interestingly, imagine he was instead a woman who had six affairs while married and had two abortions and was a member of Congress.  What do you imagine would have happened?
    This past election was in part about whether or not we would endorse two different sets of standards, one for those in power and another for the rest of us.  Thank goodness Obama won.
