Tee hee. Feels good to come back with a chuckle. Yeah, they're virtually all liars and hypocrites (though technically in this specific case Clinton was impeached for perjury not adultery). No news here, everybody knows it. Why is it then that so many of us think we can pick a 'team' possessed of absolute righteousness? It sometimes seems that you couldn't find a solitary person with an ounce of trust for anyone proclaiming political aspirations, but there they sit, living like royalty.
Being mortally short of omniscience, I don't fully understand the silliness of humanity, but it is clear that we are failing our obligation to ensure accountability in our public servants. All we can be bothered to do... on occasion... is vote them out, which just moves them along to the real money-making as a lobbyist, board member, or even better... defense contractor.
There I go railing off topic again. I am a preacher who hates preachers, and the joke is on all of us, tis true. I ain't mad at ya Newt. Let's just take this opportunity to learn that despite how much we may lie to ourselves and others, we are all woefully human, and "family values" do not talk themselves into existence. Is there really any mystery why America strays? You espouse uncompromising abstinence while committing adultery, and you aren't alone are you?
