John Ensign’s Quandry

October 7, 2009

To start off my blogging fun I’d like to discuss a very amusing and yet very sad situation thats going on in the Senate. They’ve again settled into caring and discussing (yet another) political affair and its’ consequences. Seriously?!?! At this point I sort of figure they all cheat so as not to be surprised when they announce it on national cable.

The funniest part I think about this whole Ensign mess is how he keeps denying he did anything wrong. His best quote to date (which inspired this post): “we were very careful in everything that we did. You can see our statements on that.” I don’t know about you, but when someone says something like, “I’veĀ been very careful not to do anything ‘illegal'” brings to mind questions about what they WERE doing that made them question and CHECK the legality of their actions. If you think you’re doing something that makes you have to look up the law to accomplish your task, don’t you think you’ve already crossed some kind of line?

And its not like this is private, people. This will get out.

Riddle me this: How many politicians does it take to have a secret affair that goes public and ruins their political future until they all understand that its a BAD IDEA?!
