The “scandal” is a yawner, and McCain is a goner, but this caught my eye as I started my second cup of coffee:
“Conservatives are stupid to defend McCain from this story,” Coulter told Politico. “Democrats are the party of adultery, not us.”
I don’t want to be judgmental (gee, especially not on Sunday!), but, according to the public record, here’s the score:
Since 1932, the adulterous presidents (who indulged during their terms of office) were: FDR, JFK, LBJ, Clinton.
The non-qualifiers (on the public record, anyway): Truman, Ike, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Ford, Bush, Bush.
Any corrections? Anybody? Anybody? …. Let’s not always see the same hands …8:17 am on February 24, 2008 Email Christopher Manion
