Skip to comments.Anita Creamer: Sex scandals – they take the place of real issues

Anything to distract us from what's really serious.
It's a clever nickname, but I forget which disgraced politician from the Northeast is supposed to be the "Luv Gov."
Is it Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as New York's governor almost two weeks ago in the midst of scandal after he was linked to an alleged high-priced call girl ring?
Is it his replacement, David Paterson, who spent his second day on the job confessing publicly to running around on his wife while saying that she'd been unfaithful, too?
(Way to overshare, governor. And now he's giving interviews about the drugs he's done, as well.)
Or is it former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey, who left office in 2004 after confessing to gay affairs and was last week alleged to have had three-way trysts during the marriage that ended after he came out of the closet as, in his words, "a gay American"?
Honestly, it's all gotten so confusing.
You can see why women are so drawn to men in power: They're genuinely decent, courageous and honorable people who focus above all on the greater good and will do anything to protect their wives and families from public humiliation.
Right? Unfortunately not.
There's nothing like a politician to turn sex into something that's really too icky to discuss in polite company. They're dragging us all down in the muck with them, the narcissistic monsters.
They use their wives as damage control, and even more appalling, their scandalous behavior results in panels of TV commentators speculating not only on the political fallout but also on the psychological subtleties of the infidelity at hand.

LOL! Mike Hunt, Amanda Huggenkiss and Hugh Jass are all in agreement.
Man, even if she shortens it to A. Creamer, it’s still funny.
Has Anita’s married sister, Ahgotyur Creamer Riteheer, weighted in yet?
With a name like that, she has every right to slap her Mama.
Gov. Spitzer went on a crusade AGAINST prostitution as the Elliot Ness like AG.
Change the law if you want to see it play less of a roll.
I do not recall ANY of these libs absolving Foley or the toe tapper in recent elections. Those were used to paint a picture of a GOP that was “out of control” and a “culture of corruption”.
Meanwhile Senators visit Saddam and the whole deal stinks of PAYOLA but no one bats an eye.
Obama has a photo like that somewhere. Only it isn’t milk.
The media knows that the public would never swallow Hillary or Obama’s healthcare plans if the public was aware of what they really were.
So if Hillary or Obama are discredited as politicians but not on the issue of socialized medicine, socialized medicine survives for “debate” (and a prop issue to get votes) for another day, regardless of who the candidate is.
Her maiden name was Anita Mann.
Don't forget Heywood Jablome.
(Squantos will never gitit!)
I got it last night ....what are we talking about ?!?!?
Ohhhhhh that !
Girl Friday got me a nice sweater. Told her I’d much rather had a moaner or a screamer !
