A friend of Bill- as least if I remember that correctly- makes an interesting point on Hufftingpost.com
And yet when I watch the liberal punsters on television, I can't help suspecting that they're taking advantage of the homophobia in the culture in order to make slightly more of this episode than it may in fact turn out to be worth. When I watch the Democratic politicians smack their lips, I can't help wondering whether they've forgotten that this is the sort of scandal that can happen to either party, and there's no evidence that Democrats would have handled it any better. In short, I can't help thinking that the homophobia is catching.
I've been wondering this myself.
If this was ancient Rome (please don't throw rocks at me for saying this) mothers would be shoving their sons at Mr. Foley. We may think ourselves superior, but then, I think those old Romans knew what we have forgotten under our cloak of moral righteous: its not about sex, it's about power.
