John Austin personal training

It is sad. Newt, Foley, L. Craig, Livingston, Vitter, Spitzer, McGrevey, Packwood, Clinton – there is a long list of public people with personal failings. I am not put off by the act or the lying (What do they have to lose at that point?), and as a general rule, I don’t think adultery should be a disqualifier for office. What is repellent to me is the hypocrisy, the cravenness that they hold on to power after being caught, and the humiliation their spouses have to endure when used as props when they make public admissions. They are self-absorbed malignant narcissists. Bob Packwood ran for reelection. Bob Livingston did it right; he got caught and resigned in hours. I did notice McCain gave a firm no comment to an Edwards affair.


When I saw this I was devestated(sp?). And for two reasons. The mere fact that he cheating(Pond scum) and when his wife was battling cancer.

To me that is the creme de la creme of slaps in the face. Is there a good cleaner in town?

I can't believe he had the gall to run for office - he must have known this would come out. Yet another vain, self centered, stupid bastard. My heart goes out to Elizabeth. Obama must be thanking his lucky starts he hadn't picked Edwards for VP.....
