From Michelle Malkin's site, she's got a post regarding 8-term, republican sleaze-bag Mark Souder. He got busted having an affair with a staffer and here are his hedges, I mean remarks, about stepping down....
Souder, a Republican, will will step down on Friday. He said in remarks obtained by Fox News that he “sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff.”
“I wish I could have been a better example,” he was to say. “In this poisonous environment of Washington, D.C., any personal failing is seized upon, often twisted, for political gain.
Michelle pointed out how these guys always invoke God for some reason as they blubber unconvincingly about how sorry they are. She's right, that is irritating. Then he goes on to blame the "poisonous environment of Washington" and whine about how his philandering would be "seized upon and twisted for political gain". By whom, Rep. Souder? All you had to do is keep your pants zipped and nobody could twist anything for political gain.
8 terms in Congress is enough already. All these corrupt republicans are doing is giving the liberal media a salacious, prurient story with which to entertain their readers/viewers and harm other republicans by association, rather than report on how Obama's policies have been rejected by voters at every electoral opportunity since his installation into the Presidency by them(feckless, lap-dog media).
