Skeevy Perverted Politicians

With all the latest news of the John Edward’s sex tape scandal, I wonder why it is that so many of our political figures are such sexual perverts. I understand that it’s not a new thing, but it’s really starting to get on my nerves.

The list of modern American political perverts is long and getting longer. From Bill Clinton to Barney Frank and Eliot Spitzer to Larry Craig, the perversion crosses party lines and sexual preferences. And these are all just the scandals we know about. Yet no matter what, these guys continue to get elected. We get rid of one guy, finding ourselves replaced with another even worse. Every day I turn on the TV and it seems like there is yet another scandal involving tickle fights, or hookers, or extra-marital affairs, hell even child pornography. So to me that begs the question, are these politicians deviant from the beginning, or does their perversion escalate with their power? Is there anyone out there left in American politics who is monogamous? I mean is that too much to ask?

As conservatives we talk about cleaning house and electing men and women who will truly represent us. We call for smaller government, less spending, strong defense, protection of our god-given rights under the constitution. But along with all those things, is it possible to elect men and women with morals? Or does it even matter? I would like to believe that it still does. If we are truly electing politicians to represent us, then I would hope they would do so both politically and morally. I think that for John Edwards and the rest of them, a career in the porn industry may be a better place, although, when you think about, I guess politics isn’t really that far off these days.

    Oh, OT, I just noticed when I put you in my RSS reader that your posts are showing up as complete, with full content. That’s fine, but lazy people like me might just decide to stay at home and not click over. Dunno about WordPress, but Blogger has a RSS option for ‘partial post content’, just the first few lines to hook a reader and reel ’em in. )

    Best,

    I agree. Why can’t they be moral? monogomous? why can’t they be faithful to their wives? And why do these mistresses insist on going on tv, to magazines and the like and spilling thier guts and hurting the families more then they have already been hurt? I just don’t get it!
