Tell me which "latest Republican sex scandal" you have in mind and I will explain to you how it is different.

I'll even use small words.

The Big Question? Was the Call Girl part of sex "Slave Ring" and was she an illegal alien brought into this country against her will? "Sex Slavery" is alive and well in the U.S. and in Europe.

Also, the guys wife is sort of "hot." Why would he be messing around when he has such a fine lady waiting at home. Good looking kids to.

It is not the scandal itself that is different, but the implications.

Republicans are held to a higher standard of conduct than Democrats. When a Republican is involved in a sex scandal, Republicans are outraged. When a Democrat is involved in a sex scandal, his approval ratings go through the roof.

He is still deciding if he should blame Bush for his actions, or global warming. It's true, there is a double standard for liberals who are "too cool" for morals, or ethics. He will run for president in 2012.

Uh...Cletus? Don't use the small words for me, use them because they consume less capacity on your tiny brain.

There is no difference. Bad behavior is bad behavior.

You're kind of short on facts, Mr. Alleged.

I suspect one or more of your body parts is on the short side, too.

So your saying that Republicans would be better people if they did what Democrats do?

If you can spring for a $1000/hr call girl, go for it.

He needs to step down from office and face criminal charges just like any other john - maybe more serious charges, not sure yet. I don't gloat when anyone hurts their family like he's done so I understand why you're not gloating either. He's an embarrassment.

We agree on that point then. There is no partisan monopoly on immorality and corruption.
