Quote of the Day: The GOP's Tawdry Sex Scandals

As noted frequently on this blog, today's Republican Party claims to be the party of "family values" yet when one looks at political sex scandals, its the GOP that leads the way at least three to one against Democrats.  A short quip in the Washington Post s sums it up well in the wake of Dennis Hastert's indictment:

If I understand the history correctly, in the late 1990s, the President was impeached for lying about a sexual affair by a House of Representatives led by a man who was also then hiding a sexual affair, who was supposed to be replaced by another Congressman who stepped down when forced to reveal that he too was having a sexual affair, which led to the election of a new Speaker of the House who now has been indicted for lying about payments covering up his sexual contact with a boy. 
You can't make stuff up this good!
