    Remember when the National Enquirer and Drudge broke the story on John Edwards? A lot of people thought he was a disgrace. Are the same people defending Ensign now?

    My position? Edwards - Personal business. Ensign - Personal business.

    Republicans? Edwards - Public business. Ensign - Personal business.

    Democrats? Edwards - Personal business. Ensign - Public business.

    Am I calling this one right, or can somebody here correct me?
    I agree that you are right.

    I also agree that i feel the same way about Edwards as I do about Ensign, and about Clinton.

    I don't remember what my comments were regarding that other guy Aps mentioned, I might not have liked him so much....was he the guy who was being gay with the teenagers?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Really? This grammarian understood his post. Maybe this says more about your reading comprehension than his grammar.

    Was your comment necessary? Are you Ensign and you're pissed off because you're embarrassed that you have been caught acting in a manner you previously chastized?

    Larry Craig? He was the one that was caught soliciting sex in a men's room and says he's not gay.

    I mentioned this a long time ago, but my husband saw Larry Craig in a men's room at Chicago O'Hare airport.

    The problem is that when you are the party that A) vows to protect the "sanctity of marriage" and B) proclaims yourself as the more "moral" party, you just become the hypocritical party and your arguments bear less weight.

    This is going to be a back and forth partisan mouth frothiness isn't it?

    While we're waiting on a pic of Gov Sanford's South American hottie,
    here's Sen. Ensign's tart:

    First picture of Cindy Hampton! - Shenanigans - POLITICO.com
    "Inside Edition" has beaten everyone to the punch with this lovely photo of Sen. John Ensign, his wife, Darlene, and Cindy and Doug Hampton, the couple at the center of the Ensign extramarital scandal. This picture was taken in 2001 at a high school reunion.

    "Inside Edition" says, "According to former classmates, Cindy Hampton (known as Cindy Barnes at the time) and the senator's wife, Darlene, were close friends in high school in California.

    Will their be as much outrage from the GOP and right wing as there was with John Edwards?

    Didn't this guy take to the Senate floor defending the sanctity of marriage?

    Why would he discriminate against gay marriage on one hand using the sanctity of marriage argument and the violate that same sanctity.

    Apparently he was "friends" with the womans husband, whom also worked for him.
    There is no defense for this crapola. I don't get why these guys can't just own up to the fact that they are unhappy in their marriages and get divorces or just keep their dicks in their pants.

    Because of it's blatant hypocrisy. This guy voted to impeach Clinton; the least he could do was abide by his own values which he felt everyone else should abide by.

    Mind you, Clinton's offense was far more grievous in that he bonked an intern, but still, this guy was a hypocrite extraordinaire.
