John McCain seems to have eluded his sex scandal unscathed as far as in the court of public opinion; at the very least it appears that it won't have too much of an effect on his bid for the White House. The thing that surprised me the most was not the fact that according to the NY Times he allegedly had an improper relationship with a lobbyist during his 2000 presidential campaign, but rather that a Republican man could be involved in a sexual scandal with (gasp!) a woman.
Their recent track record seems to make this the exception to the rule. Larry Craig, Mark Foley, Jeff Gannon, Ed Schrock--the list goes on and on. I don't want to say that all Republicans are gay, but apparently there's more closeted homosexuals in the Republican party than on American Idol.
What's worse is that all these repressed hypocrites are always the first in line to speak out against homosexuality, and the ones holding political offices vote against gay rights any chance they get. I can't think of a more ass-backwards betrayal to one's self. If they would just come out maybe they'd stop being such douches and be happy for a change.
It truly is the party of repression and self loathing.
I'm still crossing my fingers for ex-Senator Rick Santorum to be photographed in all his glorious and shiny leather S & M gear at some Pittsburgh-area gay underground sex club. Wait, I take that back. I bet he's totally a pedophile. That makes much more sense.
