Anita Creamer: Sex scandals they take the place of real issues
Sacramento Bee ^ | 3/28/8 | Anita Creamer

Posted on 03/28/2008 8:24:31 AM PDT by SmithL

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.

Anita Creamer wants more French:
Americans will simply never attain the world-weary sophistication of the French about extramarital flings if we're stuck dealing with the likes of Dr. Laura and ex-Gov. Spitzer, moralizers without much in the way of real morality.

Call and ask her. Her phone number is listed at the bottom of the column at the link.

“Americans will simply never attain the world-weary sophistication of the French about extramarital flings...”

For the survival of our culture and our greatness as a nation, let us hope not.

No, I’m not being overly dramatic......

Morality DOES indeed matter, and it matters greatly.

Yes, and I bet she’d just give her hubby/BF a big wet kiss and forgive him if she caught him en flagrante; even more so if his picture was plastered all over the Internet!

I can't take seriously a woman whose name is "Creamer"; way too many jokes there.

But seriously: listen up, ladies! Anita thinks that adultery is no big deal. So, if Anita is married...and to a man, feel free to indulge yourselves. Anita won't mind; there are "more important issues" at stake in her life.

Yeah, its just sex. Nothing to do with lying under other, financial misdealings, concealing evidence, crossing state lines to commit a crime, subborning perjury, conspiracy, misappropriation of government funds, potential blackmail or mob ties, etc., etc.

She has a good point. The media wants flash, not substance. Stories about details of Hillary’s Health Care plans, Obama’s foreign policy proposals, or McCains Economic plans are too “dull” and “above the heads” of the people. We know the basic poritions of Hillary’s Health Care plans, but the details won’t make the light of day...

And because sleaze is quite a bit easier for the public to comprehend than potential avenues for government intervention in the foreclosure crisis or policy differences in the presidential candidates' positions on [the socialization of] health care, we dive right into the latest scandal along with them.

Morality is interfering with *gasp* a big government socialist agenda! Us peasants won't forgive our leaders of their trespasses and let them fight on in the battle for the Common Good™.

So I guess Ms. Creamer misses the fact that engaging in prostitution, on either side, is ILLEGAL.

If you examine all leftist issues, you’ll see that the ONLY “freedoms” that they ever defend are those involving the genitals.

Everything else MUST be controlled,

but anything related to sex, even if there are other crimes involved, must be excused.

In some respects, yes. There is a striking inconsistency in leftist rhetoric. They can argue, in the same conversation, that crosses must be removed from public squares because some people are offended by them, and that parades in which floats depict Jesus being sodomized are protected by freedom of speech.

I found myself in agreement with a lot of what she had to say until she veered left into liberal issues like government intervention and health care.

The fixation on sex allowed Clintonites to frame the debate about the sex and not the lying under oath. The bigger issues like terrorism, campaign contributions from China and the gutting of our defense capabilities were ignored because people wanted to focus on the sleaze. In Spitzer’s case there bigger issues at play that wind up being ignored because we want to chirp on about sex.

Ignore who the politicians are screwing. Pay attention to how they are screwing us and the nation’s future.

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.

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.
