We Fall Down
For a saint is just a sinner who fell down
and got up
seems to fit in this situation. Also, maybe it’s time for Americans to GTFU and stop expecting sexual perfection from their candidates. I’m not talking about people who attempt to entice the underage and impressionable into sexual relations, or anyone who engages in an affair at work that violates sexual harassment guidelines or people who find their mouths on strange men’s penises while sharing a room with them (bear with me, I will find the link to that story).
I’m talking about a man who broke a vow to his wife. I’m not minimizing the fallout to their marriage but I would hope that pundits, bloggers and the whole world chill out before condemning John Edwards for doing something that is more common than most Americans care to admit.
Yeah, I’m including the lying too.
So before anyone decries how it’s the end of the world as we know it….
make sure to take a good look in the mirror before throwing around self-righteous condemnation and judgment.
