The story of Congressman Weiner should remind us that there is a just God. Only the one who created the mind of Shakespeare could script a story as ridiculous, sharp, funny, and deadly serious at the same time.

What will He come up with next?
And Douglas Wilson highlights one of the fundamental lies of our current political climate, the separation of public/private.
He wants the voters to know that when it comes to this public sphere over here, he is a man of integrity, who would never knowingly violate a House rule, or an oath of office, whatever, but who, when it comes to the private sphere over there, and the private parts contained therein, he is a liar, skunk, and inept Twitterer.
Politics stinks. Mainly because its full of skunks.
