Bonus Presidential Coverage

American’s like sleaze. This is evident by the succsess of shows like Jerry Springer, the countless dating reality shows, and Rush Limbaugh. But apparently American’s are also less willing to accept lying and cheating when it comes to sleazy/sexy subjects than for those that actually matter. Theseideas are explored in this Boston Globe article.

But none of that explains the outrage over perceived lying about whether a wife knew about her husband’s infidelity. And it doesn’t explain the absence of outrage when it comes to possible dishonesty about an administration’s reasons for going to war. One issue seems a lot more important to the country and its future than the other. And the more important issue does not involve the tawdry story of an intern, a president, and a pizza delivery.
