We can all rest easy now. South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has been found. He’s safe and sound but sadly was caught with his pants and underwear down. He’s just another politician thinking with his third leg.
This gets less shocking all the time – male politicians cheating on their wives and getting caught. Those on that sinful list include John Ensign, David Vitter, Eliot Spitzer, John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani. And remember what President Bill Clinton was doing with that intern right there in the White House?
Sex scandals have even happened here in sleepy Cincinnati. In 1974, Cincinnati City Council member Jerry Springer wrote a check to a prostitute for services rendered. At least he didn’t pull out his American Express card.
I don’t recall any female politicians getting caught in this kind of activity and I guess that says something about men. Are we really all alike?
In my view, I don’t really care what these guys do in their personal lives. It doesn’t make them a bad politician or a good one.
I think Clinton was a good president despite that stuff with his intern. John Edwards is probably a decent person despite his lovechild and Rudy Giuliani is an idiot even if he hadn’t cheated on his wife.
When these guys get caught, I’m not one to think they should resign. Come reelection; let the voters decide if they want the dude with the hard on to stay in office.
And another thing, you male politicians, stop the tears, cut the crying. That goes for you too Mark Sanford. I’m not about to feel sorry for you because you were cheating on your wife and banging some hottie. Pull your underwear and pants up and get back to work.
