Don't Cry For Him, Argentina

It seems like every other day we're learning about some politician having an affair. First the senator of my state confesses he had an illicit relationship with one of his wife's best friends who also is the wife of the senator's long time, close friend. What a soap opera! Now the governor of South Carolina has admitted to an affair with his 'dear, dear friend' in Argentina. And we can even read his sappy emails to her.

To be honest I just don't care about the drama in other people's lives. When it comes to politicians I'm much more concerned with how well they do their job. Of course, it's got to be hard to do your job if you're busy sneaking around, hiding from reporters and your wife. But, seriously, I'd rather just not know.

It also doesn't work for me when someone like our senator, John Ensign, wants to judge the life style of everyone else and then wants a pass on his own behavior. Speaking out for the 'sanctity of marriage' while conducting an affair with his friend's wife is hypocrisy, plain and simple. Bleh!

I just wish we could all stop worrying about what other people are doing behind closed doors and pay some attention to more important issues, like maybe the economy.
