Scot Lehigh gets it wrong again...

Re John Ensign and Mark Sanford:
As bare-your-soul-about-baring-your-body press conferences go, Sanford’s was one for the ages. And now, having watched it in its entirety, I have a confession of my own to make.

No, no, not that kind of confession.

Just this: I don’t care that much. Not beyond the hypocrisy, which is admittedly delicious to point out.

The real problem isn't hypocrisy, it is more to the point that one collection of ideologues within the overclass cannot live up to the "standards" they normally use to punish those with whom they disagree politically.
Morality therefore has become a weapon in the hands of the inept, and that is a bad thing for morals public and private. If all morality is, is a means to vex your enemies then morals themselves become degraded.
And that my frenz is a bigger problem than mere hypocrisy at the topmost reaches of the USA.
