There is a double-standard when it comes to the press and how they treat Republican and Democratic sex scandals. It's a simple reality. Getting outraged of the unfairness of this situation won't change the fact that the situation exists.
This double-standard has existed for years, if not decades. That Democratic politicians will be pilloried for sexual indiscretions while Republican politicians will get off virtually scott free shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Least of all Democratic politicians. It's been 24 years since Gary Hart got caught stepping out on his wife.
John Edwards is on my shit list.
