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.

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.
Anita Creamer? Just spat coffee all over my keyboard from laughing!
Is this lady’s name for real?
LOL. Same here.
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.
Here's Anita Creamer.
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!
Anita Creamer, that sounds like the stage name for some San Francisco drag queen.
Americans will simply never attain the world-weary sophistication of the French. . .”
Sincerely hope not. Not a way I want to greet each new day.
I think I’d be laughing too much
Even more ironic if your coffee was black
and in need of creamer.
Mah coffee... Ahneeta Creamer.
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.
I had forgotten about the sex scandals that get too much plublicity until I read this article about sex scandals getting too much publicity.
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...
Creamer thinks these scandals are about sex. Missed that boat.
