    No ‘Family Values’ voters would ever, ever vote for someone who committed adultery. Would they?

    Hard to say…let’s ask Newt Gingrich, he should know!
    Of course, Bill Clinton’s supporters might know as well.

    So why mention it (assuming it is true)? Why not mention the host of current politicians? Including many of the so-called moral leaders who went after Clinton?

    Politicians who have affairs are older than this country. They’re a fact of life. It’s the ones who claim to be high morals candidates while getting it on that disgust me.

    God knows (yes … he does) that there are plenty of people who have no leg to stand on when it comes to fidelity within the marriage contract.

    Does the outright betrayal of ones “solemn and sacred vow” given freely before witnesses speak to ones character? Should it be used to “judge” whether one should qualify for public office?

    A public servant vows to “honor and obey” the “will of the people”.

    If they can not be trusted to remain faithful to a spouse, why should you trust them to remain faithful to the will of the people?

    The very nature of politics steals away honor and integrity. Back room deals, compromise on your principles to get the best deal you can, corruption, fraud, and LIES.

    So, if your guy – a wonderful as you think he is – has committed adultery (cheating, lying, stealing from the one he professed to love now and forever at one time) then don’t vote for him again.

    Or do NOT complain when he does it again and again.

    If the so-called “values voter” is outraged at Wiener’s political come back attempt, and not Sanford’s, then his actual beliefs are of partisan politics, so so-called “family values.” If Sanford’s electorate can forgive him, than Wiener’s can forgive him.

    While you are correct and your point is very valid, you missed the mark. Braindead08 said “Family Values” voters, the republicans are the party pretending to be the “Family Values” party. Weiner (at least as has been reported) has only shown despicable decorum in sexting his stuff, not leaving the state and country to shag his mistress. So far Weiner is only guilty of inappropriate behavior, whereas many members of the “Family Values” and “Religious” party are guilty of outright adultery. Subtleties of course, but pretty significant nonetheless.

    What if there’s a lot of good evidence that it’s perfectly possible for someone who commits adultery to be a very good politician? Examples abound.

    “It’s the ones who claim to be high morals candidates while getting it on that disgust me.”
    And that is why makes you different from (and better than) the average RWNJ on here.

    I think Bruce addressed that quite clearly,
    “The very nature of politics steals away honor and integrity. Back room deals, compromise on your principles to get the best deal you can, corruption, fraud, and LIES.”
    I guess you just don’t want to see it so you can continue to support the republicans who are guiltiest. And that is the point of the other arguments, the republicans are the first to claim the “Moral highground” but are also the ones with the greatest indiscretions and violations of the morality of which they claim. It comes down to their hypocrisy.

    Remember, folks, marriage is a sacred contract that only we heterosexuals have the right to desecrate and make a mockery of. Just as God intended!

    What does “normal” matter, anyway? It’s not “normal” to be seven feet tall, but I don’t notice that the NBA refuses to hire abnormally tall people.

    I think the comic is suppose to make light of the “value voters” that vote the idiotic “sanctity of marriage” acts who decry homosexuals as “immoral” as opposed to “different”.

    @The Wolf In Your Midst: great post.

    A typical “Family Values Voter” hates the fact that there is someone, namely Weiner that is such a scumbag that he makes a well-adjusted Gay couple look normal, and moral compared to him.

    Everyone knows that “Family Values Voters” are ONLY going to support Republican, Conservative, White, Straight, Married, Landowning, Christian, European Descended Males over the age of 50 who make more then $5.000.000 a year!
