Back in 2004, I noted the differences between the GOP and the Democrats in the way that sex scandals were treated.  In short, Republicans are the party of accountability.

Today, recalling that Republicans forced a congressman to resign in the wake of his sending shirtless photos of himself, it will be interesting to see whether Democrats have anything at all to say to Anthony Weiner.

Is this behavior A-OK among the party that LOVES to insist that it is the party of feminists?  Or is this just one more manifestation of the indiscipline that also characterizes Democrats on fiscal matters?
