Republican Sex Hypocrites Owe Bill Clinton an Apology

Starting with Mark Sanford and John Ensign, the large contingent of Republican sex hypocrites owe Bill Clinton an apology. Remember when they called for Clinton's impeachment, the most profound act in our democracy? Where are they now? What a bunch of phonies! Don't you agree?

I don't play holier-than-thou. Personally I wish Obama had named Eliot Spitzer, one of the few who got it totally right about Wall Street corruption, to a high regulatory post. But isn't it amazing how many Republicans have a double moral standard, and how it seems that when Democrats get embroiled in sex scandals they usually leave office, while Republicans usually remain?

The only person who should resign is Mark Sanford, not because of his sex, but because he abused public trust by disappearing from office and apparently using public money. For the rest I would leave it to their conscience, their families, their God and their voters.

These sex scandals are not partisan. Even today there is a former staffer for John Edwards pushing a book deal where he may claim that on top of Edward's other attributes, there were sex movies made. Is this true? I have no idea, but neither party is immune from these scandals.

These Republicans crack me up. The same people doing their own lascivious deeds were demanding the president of the United States be impeached. The same party that fought for Clinton's impeachment fights for their oversexed studs to stay in office. Give me a break.

Each and every Republican who called for Clinton's removal from office, but is not calling for the removal of Republicans from office for their deeds, owes William Jefferson Clinton a deep and heartfelt apology.

And I still say, bring Spitzer back. Let's have some real change in our financial system from a guy who tried to save Americans from financial disaster, because he was right when most in both parties were wrong
