Liberals are always cheering for the wrong people.
Have you ever noticed?
In our war on islamo-facism they ask America to withdraw. When Hugo Chavez smells sulfur at the United Nations, liberal democratic Senators "understand" him (i.e. Tom Harkin). But no one is a liberal's hero the way an adulterer is.
You would think in a world shaped by modern liberal feminists that liberal media types and liberal politicians would be rushing to the aid of the poor wife and kids offering them welfare and state-funded counseling and beating the offending man to within an inch of his life. But not so.
The original love affair with adultery happened with the former President who to this day can not be offered a cigar without a range of comments flooding through people's minds. Yet by comparison William Jefferson Clinton's adultery was a little bland, even unimpressive by the new superhero, extra-marital fornicators of our time.
Who are they? Men who engage in same-gender sexual activities!
This is why Bishop Eugene Robinson of the now nearly defunct Episcopal church is revered by those on the political left. "He was true to himself," they say with almost breathless whisper - as if this act of discovering his belly button was some form of epic courage.
Forget the fact that he has ruined an entire denomination of Christian faith, the fact that he can go home at night and engage in sick sexual perversion makes him a legend amongst the political left.
But now there's a new kid on the scene. Having done all he could to ruin the state of New Jersey - a state he took a solemn oath to protect and serve - the new adulterer that liberals all love is Jim McGreevey. Just in the last week alone he's held hands with Oprah, and shared New Jersey rest area secrets with Matt Lauer.
He's also invoked God's name about three hundred times.
And now he says, "it's all about telling the truth."
But I'd like to know, "since when?"
It wasn't important enough for the Governor to keep his pants zipped after pledging to do so before God and man... with his wife... twice!
There was no commitment to "telling the truth" or "confessing" (a reference to the poorly titled book the ex-governor is now pimping) when he's arriving home from the busy day in Trenton and telling his wife and child everything but the truth - only then to whisk himself away under the late night guise of more work to go have an anonymous tryst with psychopaths along turnpike hide-a-ways.
There is no need to tell us about the prayer cards you read before you made your big press conference announcing your resignation.
While Oprah, Lauer, McGreevey, and the throngs of democrats who "support" him may be holding hands singing Kumbayah - some adult needs to come along and ask a few serious questions.
Questions like why should you be praised for your "honesty" now when you are putting sexual pleasure ahead of the security of the state you served? Who can trust you after you named a lover to the post of homeland security czar who was neither an American citizen, nor was qualified to even attend homeland security meetings?
But what about the deeper questions that no one ever asks these jokers?
Robinson, McGreevey, and even Clinton to a certain degree became sympathetic figures because of this "true to your self" mantra. But in the grown-up world don't we try to instruct our boys that the definition of a hero is someone who overcomes his own natural fears to accomplish more, and be more, and do more than they think is possible? Isn't it good to teach our young men that when they enter into a marriage that they should strive to be their family's superhero?
Isn't it a healthy thing for a father to leave the home in the morning thinking, "I'm going to go slay the dragons of this world so that my family, and the sacredness of my home won't be victimized by the evil in the world?"
One of McGreevey's actual excuses, as relayed on Lauer's interview was to blame his parents for being bad role models - because they themselves did not engage in homosexual activity.
Is he listening to himself? Did he want them to?
If they had - HE would not even be here!
In the whole spin cycle of garbage about sexual behavior and why we're "made a certain way" we forget that choices are made for every single action taken. With Clinton the issue was "come on every body does it." With Robinson and McGreevey its simply, "I'm being true to myself."
In truth its selfishness coupled with the refusal to curb their sexual appetite. Its the refusal to make the choice to not be a slave to their impulses. Basically they are still little boys who do not know how to discipline themselves - only now they wish the world to feel sorry for them. And in McGreevey's case he's openly seeking to work with kids for his life's mission now.
Uh... no thank you!
I don't understand the attraction. But one thing is true - liberals love adulterers.
And today, if you break your vows of commitment to your wife and children, abandon them, and get kinky with rest stop lowlife, while simultaneously endangering the most populous state in the union - in the midst of a war on terror - you're a rock star!
