Few remember Congressman Gerry Stubbs (D-Mass 1973 - 1997), one of the first openly gay congress critters. He took an underage male paige to a foreign country to have sex. The Repubs went for Censure. When Stubbs returned, the Dems gave Stubbs a standing ovation on the House floor. This is your democrat party. Always was and always will be.

The list is endless. Newt Gingrich et al. I am socially liberal, so I have gotten over all of the biblical injunctions against divorce and contraception -- some of my best friends are divorced and most of them used contraception in the days when it mattered to us.

Conservatives are always told they don't do enough to reach across the aisle. We're divisive, obstructionist and hostile to bipartisanship. So in the spirit of unity and comity, I'm announcing the formation of a new social justice group: Ladies Against Senator Sleaze-Bob.

Now all I need are some principled Democratic ladies and liberal media lionesses to step up to the plate with me to protest the vulgar, sexist behavior of Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.

Surely, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Cher, Sandra Fluke, Eva Longoria and I can all agree that when a powerful Washington politician abuses his power to victimize young women,...
