    I think the original post message has been changed. The point being made is that Republicans run for office based largely on the fact that they are more moral. That Democrats do not hold the Christian high ground like they do. ((Many many posts about the current President not having Christian values))

    I could care less because I see them as the same but the original post had as much to do with claiming moral high ground than it does about doing something wrong.

    I have just one thing to say about this particular Republican Congresscritter:

    It was a woman this time. A very hot place has just gotten very cold.

    In related news, it has been reported that Chris Lee is switching to the Democratic Party. LOL.

    Bill Clinton lies under oath about having sex with a government employee... gets fined and disbarred. But, but, but it was his personal business... it was... it was his personal business. Leave him alone, it was his pesonal business.

    Lying under oath to deny someone their day in court is OK for Libs. It reveals their level of "standards". The party where perjury by their president is OK.

    No, you're not an American, but you surely are a promoter of the SAPs (Socialists of America Party). Even though you can't vote for them... you sure do run your mouth for them.

    Youz be a socialist in the Pelosi-Reid-Obama... Pierre Trudeau mold. A true SAPologist.

    Here's what Speaker Boehner had to say about Lee today on Meet the Press


    John Boehner Meet the Press (Video, Transcript) Feb. 13, 2011 | Shallow Nation

    MR. GREGORY: Let's talk about some of the things you've had to deal with just this week in Congress. Former Congressman Christopher Lee, who resigned after posting some, some photos, answering something on, on Craigslist. This is not the picture he put there, we didn't want to put that up. But it was a, a picture without his shirt, communicating with a young woman via Craigslist. He resigned immediately. You talked to him about it. What did you tell him?

    SPEAKER BOEHNER: I, I--conversations that I have with my colleagues are private, and I'm going to keep them that way.

    MR. GREGORY: But you made it very clear that that kind of behavior was not appropriate.

    SPEAKER BOEHNER: I'm not going to divulge conversations that I have with my colleagues. The American people have the right and should expect the highest ethical standards from their members of Congress. I made this clear to my members going back four years ago, and I told them that I would hold them to the highest ethical standards, and I have.

    MR. GREGORY: So personal behavior, personal indiscretions are fair game when it comes to evaluating leadership and fitness for office?

    SPEAKER BOEHNER: I'm going to hold my members to a high standard.

    MR. GREGORY: Personal indiscretions, personal behavior

    SPEAKER BOEHNER: I'm going to hold my members to a high standard.

    What about "I'm going to hold my members to a high standard." doesn't Gregory understand.

    What are the thoughts going on in his head when he took that photo?
