Do you think the public has a legitimate right to know about a politician’s personal/romantic life? When, if ever, do you think a politician’s personal history is relevant to his/her ability to perform in office?
Which reminds me... here in Portland there's this huge hullaballoo about mayor Sam Adams because he (an openly gay man) had sex with a younger man. Whoop de frakking do! In the first place, having affairs is a politician's rite of passage. Secondly, he's not even married, so it's not technically an affair! And why does anyone give a shit that's he's getting laid? The guy Mayor Adams boinked didn't work for him or have anything to do with anything that might be considered a conflict of interest, so WHY DO PEOPLE CARE?
For that matter, why is ANYONE'S sex life of anyone else's concern? Tiger Woods should have said, "What? I'm a celebrity. Fuck you!" in not so many words. It's nobody's business but his and his wife's!
