    but we did not lose Ted Kennedy (until we actually did, from death, not scandal), and the righties have not lost Newt (although they may wish they had), Larry (wide stance) Craig, John (savings and loan) McCain  or (diaper) David Vitter.  
    No, I don't condone what he did.  I think it was stupid, foolish, weird, dishonorable, but I'm gonna wait a while to see what actually comes of it.  Due to precedent, I'm not convinced we've lost the voice we want from him -- not the one that sends stupid pictures and dishonors his marriage and position -- the one that calls Clarence Thomas out on his shenanigans.

      I hope both he and Spitzer can make the climb back.  We really need their talents....

      Yes, Ted is an example of redemption, but that was before we had instant communication/internet/and corporately owned media.

    •  The problem is, he can no longer take (4+ / 0-)

      the high road.  Now, it's just the pot calling the kettle black.  What he did was stupid and dishonorable -what Thomas did was stupid and dishonorable but in a different way.

      Wiener was doing a wonderful job but has now lost his credibility.  It doesn't help that his offense and his name are so related. Nobody in either party will ever be able to see him or his name without remembering.

      I don't think I am the only one who wants and expects integrity from those in positions of power-especially those who are supposed to represent me.
