Yes, John, I’m talking to you.
You know, as a general matter, whatever politicians do in their private lives is their business. I don’t want them poking into my personal matters or anyone else’s, so I think that’s only fair. Have extramarital affairs or don’t, but keep CNN and the networks at bay.
In our day of 24/7 news coverage and cable news that feeds on stories about sex or anything even coming close, you have to be a fool not to believe that if you fool around, you are going to get caught eventually.
I really didn’t think you were a fool, John.
Whether it’s our business or not, when you get caught (and people always get caught), it will pretty much be the end of your career, unless you are an uber-politician like Bill Clinton.
John, how could you not know that? The only way I would be more ticked off right now, is if you HAD become the Democratic nominee and this news was coming out 2 1/2 weeks before the convention. In any event, the GOP is still going to find a way to make hay with this. I know they are working on the ad even as I am typing this post.
Perhaps an even bigger problem for you, John, is that those of us who were your most ardent supporters, were also equally enamored of your wife Elizabeth. As a matter of fact, some of us thought she should be the one running for president. So, it’s sort of a betrayal two-fer — we don’t care about the affair other than how it impacts your important messages on poverty and health care, and how it impacts your amazing wife.
If you or other politicians are going to find ways to mess up your political careers, and disenfranchise those of us who supported you the most, can you find some new way to do it?
At least surprise us next time.
