    People do fuck up. Most people, however, don't lie to the world about their fuck up. They man up and deal with it.

    When a republican guy posted bare chested pictures of himself Boehner bounced his ass before the end of the day. Why does Wiener deserve a break? Did he use gov't facilities or property to do this stuff? Isn't there something in the House ethics similar to what the military has: conduct unbecoming?

    It is a very thin list of things that qualify as "conduct unbecoming a democratic politician".

    So you're okay with a US Rep who repeatedly lies to you? You're okay with a guy who has that much disregard for anybody else, who has that much poor judgement? Sounds like he used gov't property for personal monkey business. That's a big non-no, and everyone who works for the gov't knows it. And you're fine with that?

    No, he's saying the the Democratic Party doesn't punish ethical lapses by their members very often because ethical lapses are their default mode.

    Bush never lied, nor did he fuck up with the Iraq war.
