On Geese and Ganders

It may have occurred to you to ask why it is such a huge deal that John Edwards cheated on his wife, but not a huge deal that McCain cheated on his first wife. You may have asked this question, perhaps rhetorically, over dinner with your wife or at a ballgame with a conservative friend.

Fortunately, the Republicans have answers.

1. John McCain was a prisoner of war for five and a half years.

2. Edwards' wife has cancer, whereas McCain's wife was merely crippled in a car accident.

3. Five and a half years. Beatings every day.

4. It was thirty years ago.

5. Senator Byrd used to be in the Ku Klux Klan.

6. Five and a half years of beatings every day.

7. John Edwards condemned Bill Clinton for having an affair. (He voted "not guilty" twice, unlike McCain, who voted "guilty").

8. You try being a POW for five and a half years and see if you don't cheat on your wife.

Don't believe me? Watch the video here.
