    Even in bad circumstances there are positive lessons to learn...

    There isnt a dimes difference between them. This type of behavior is common in society...why would we not expect it to be common with overpriveleged 'representatives' who demonstrate over and over they cant be trusted but still get sent back?

    It depends on what the definition of "is" is.

    And unlike liberals, conservatives don't embrace their bad apples. We throw them out with the trash.

    Conservatives embrace their principles, while liberals embrace their celebrities.

    You're right. It was pretty impressive the way the Conservs forced Larry Craig out of the senate after his "wide stance" non-sense; then insisted on the immediate resignation of values guy Mark Stanford once he returned from his nudist walk along the Appalachian trail; how they blocked Vetters from running again after Mr. family man had his daliance with the hooker; and of course, it was incredible how they championed the resignation and full prosecution of John Ensign after the revelations that he may have paid off a staffer in the cover-up of his sexual romp with that staffer's wife. Yes, all these impressive things happened in the alternative universe you live in. In this universe quite the opposite is true.

    Conservs may not "embrace their bad apples', but they sure look the other way. I would love to have an example where they "threw one out with the trash" (in this century please)

    don't forget the once shining star of the chicago dem crime family and a poster child for affirmative action-Rhodes Scholar Mel Reynolds who was convicted of extortion and banging a 16 year old girl. what republican congressman has been convicted of child rape in recent history.

    what was craig convicted of?

    I have yet to meet either a defense attorney or a criminal prosecutor who believes the state could have convicted Craig of anything if he had gone to trial. the cop jumped way too soon and in the absence of physical contact or spoken words, the state didn't have sufficient evidence of any crime

    squire, as an officer of the court, correct me if i am in error

    but my recollection was that larry craig entered a guilty plea in that matter

    and here you try to insist that he was innocent

    Re: John boehner sex probe

    some republicans are deserving of the hypocrisy charge when they spew their family values crap and then bag some extra familial beaver

    however, that is nothing compared to those rich fat cats like John Kerry whining about the rich when he married two rich heiresses and registered his yacht in a different state to avoid punitive property taxes or the Kennedys [who engaged in all sorts of tax scams (like putting assets in a trust in Fiji)] to avoid taxes they want to impose on other often much less wealthy citizens.

    yeah and if you actually read what I wrote, you would note I stated if he had gone to trial

    never said he was innocent but merely the state did not have sufficient evidence to overcome the presumption that he was innocent if he had fought the charges
