It seems to me that if you are a Democrat, you get away with it but if you are a Republican, you do not. The Dems rush to the defense of their compatriots almost without fail. When a Republican makes a mistake in word or deed, there are always a few Republicans who quickly throw him to the wolves.

Well, after all, an adulterous Republican is a hypocrite, but an adulterous Democrat isn't.

The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair has raised and will continue to raise a number of questions.

First among them (OK, maybe not first, national security being more important, but stay with me) is why should he have resigned? I am always amused when journalists use the words "sex scandal" when writing about such things. Having abandoned most standards for what used to be called "upright behavior," culture now "tsk-tsks" when someone is caught in a compromising position.

Bill Clinton didn't have to resign after the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He lied about their assignations...
