Apology Accepted...?

"Rich White Male Apologizes Sincerely For Affair In Which He Cheated On His Wife With Another Married Woman"

And it's very touching. Senator John Ensign has deeply and with real emotion apologized for his personal sexual affair...to his work buddies? Who applauded afterwards?

I guess his wife will read about it here. Sorry, Mrs. Ensign. A man's gotta have his priorities.

Why am I vomiting in my mouth?

Hmmm. Just searched your blog (in vain) for Sen. John Edwards (D-NC, love child born while seeking Dem. nomination and wife on chemotherapy), Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D-NY, weird sex with NYC hooker), Gov. Jim McGreevey (D-NJ, extramarital same-sex affairs), Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI, sexual harrassment allegations), Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA, gay brothel run out of DC apartment), Rep. Mel Reynolds (D-IL, statutory rape/assault), Rep. Gary Condit (D-CA, extramarital affair with intern), Rep. Gerry Studds (D-MA, affair with underaged male page), and Pres. Bill Clinton (D-AR, kinky sex with intern in Oval Office, numerous assault allegations, rape accusation).

Wondering if you can still taste the vomit from any of those, or are you strictly partisan in your feigned outrage?

Sorry, krid, but in my snarky attempt at humor, I evidently didn't make my point.

I'm not in the least bothered by his personal affairs - I'm bothered by the Good Old Boy Club (aka the Senate) that A) requires him to apologize to them for his affair (!?!) and B) applauds him for his humiliating public apology in the hopes that now all will be better in Senate-GOPville. It's rather throat-fillingly disgusting.

The story should never have made the national media or been a story at all. I'm sure I have neighbors within a few blocks of me, people I don't even know - gasp! - having extramarital affairs. But I guess I'll find out about when they have to apologize at work and the local paper is there to cover it. As always.
