    It apparently wasn't easy to spin this one! Look how long it took to come up with "it's a private matter" excuse for his behavior. It will be interesting to see what his voters think about his stubborn lack of common sense, let alone trustworthiness.

    Good morning, Dr. Chuckles.

    It's a sad day when people don't seem to equate the character flaws of infidelity with the potential character issues that could betray the public trust of public office.

    People lacking integrity can be bribed. What would Weiner have been willing to do with public funds, public security, etc, if he thought he could avoid this embarassment and damage to his career?

    What would Clinton have done to hide Lewinsky if he could have? Perhaps even he did for a while.

    Integrity matters, folks.

    Yes, it does. And I don't understand the rationale that character can be compartmentalized.

    So the story goes, there were an awful lot of threats and extortion done to keep the President's secrets. And dealing with all of these distractions while trying to run the free world probably didn't help things along.
