First, here; the Department of Justice's recent indictment against John Edwards (aka "Silky Pony") indicates that not only did some of his campaign donors ignore the fact that he was cheating on his cancer-stricken wife, but also helped him pay for the upkeep of his mistress. This boggles the mind; someone actually paid to help cover up an affair for a guy who had earned tens of millions of dollars in legal settlements? I would hope that, if asked, I'd at least say "you can pay your own money to keep your mistress quiet, Silky Pony."
Abroad, it appears that France's socialist party is set to expel the mother of another one of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's apparent victims. Evidently, it's more important for the Socialists to win the French Parliament than it is for an unrepentant rapist to be put in jail.
I wish I could only point towards the left here, but suffice it to say that the GOP failed to push out people like John Ensign, also caught in Silky-Pony like malfeasance. It used to be that the principle was more important than the person; evidently, that is no longer true. Or at least it's becoming more obvious that we don't really believe this.
