The Republicans are having a hard time finding a replacement for Sarah Palin. Might as well go with her again! So far there has been no improvement in prospects. Perhaps if they followed politics and get their heads from the women’s underwear, the fresh air might clear their heads. Or they are paralyzed with fear as one columnist, Gail Collins, puts it – fear of adultery. It seems like Republicans are finding it hard to practice what they preach and what they demand of others morally. Don’t they know that the good Lord has a way of exposing sins committed in the dark? Good luck Republicans, perhaps you have to seek the confessional first instead of the congressional. Of course this is what happens when humans try to usurp God’s Almighty grace and do it badly.
What you put out there is what’s coming back to you. Your judgment of others, your religious dictatorship, your denial of rights to others. Step down from your pedestal and humble yourselves then maybe the outcome would be a little different. Gail Collins’ column in NYT says it best…

A married congressman hunting for babes by posting a half-naked photo of himself on the Internet is Republican.
A married governor who fathers an illegitimate child is awful. A married governor who fathers an illegitimate child by a staff member of the family home and then fails to mention it to his wife for more than 10 years is Republican.
A married senator who has an affair with an employee is a jerk. A married senator who has an affair with an employee who is the wife of his chief of staff, and whose adultery is the subject of ongoing discussion at his Congressional prayer group, is Republican.
We haven’t even gotten to Newt Gingrich yet! Read more…
