The American obsession with infidelity.....someone elses
Here we go again. As the world burns, the American economy crumbles underneath us, and US soldiers die in foreign lands for no apparent good reason, our President golfs and our attention is riveted by the dalliances of a Hollywood turd who everybody knew was a turd.
Why do we love to stand safely on the sideline and revel in the mistakes of others? And the despicable media gladly provide us with up-to-the-minute updates on each and every mistake by prying into the private lives of anybody who they think might be hiding something from them, as if they, and by extension we, are entitled to that information.
I am by no means defending Arnold, but unless it can be shown that he compromised his office by having affairs in his physical Sacramento office, the guy is not the governor anymore so why should we care? I had the same standard for Bill Clinton. Had he not "done" Monica actually in the Oval Office during work hours, rather met her in a seedy motel off the interstate like everybody else, I wouldn't have cared.
Surely there are more important things going on than digging up dirt on a private, but famous citizen. I'm sick of the Jerry Springer media playing gotcha with peoples' lives as if it's their right and our business.
