Yesterday, Yahoo! posted a story discussing Republican Senator John Sununu’s call for the dismissal of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. The story was originally titled “GOP Senator Sununu calls for Gonzales’ dismissal,” but was changed within the hour to “Senator Sununu calls for Gonzales’ dismissal.” I think this is a blatant form of political pandering and shows that there is some kind of political authority at Yahoo! making sure that news stories don’t reflect badly on the Republican party. Disagree? Agree? Comment.

First, read this article.
The following is a quote.
“Gingrich was an outspoken opponent of Bill Clinton, frequently attacking the President on his lack of morals. But Gingrich had more than his share of skeletons in the closet. Gingrich has been divorced twice and married three times. He called his second wife in the hospital while she was recovering from cancer treatment, to tell her that he was filing for divorce.
While the GOP-led Congress was crucifying President Clinton for carrying on an affair with Monica Lewinsky, Gingrich was busy carrying on an affair of his own. Gingrich was having an affair with a Congressional intern who would eventually become his third wife.”

This goes right back to the discussion of morals we were just having. Claiming to be more moral than someone else is just a form of posturing that in reality has little to no effect on policy decisions. If anything, those who try hardest to be seen as moral are the ones who are most likely to be hiding their immorality. Normal people don’t need to regularly assert their moral superiority, as they are quite comfortable in expressing this through their actions instead of through their words. The next time you call someone else immoral, think about what you’re saying and see if you’re actually speaking your mind or just trying to inflate your reputation. If its the latter, then you are an actor playing a role and not a human making a decision.
ewwwww, who would want to have an affair with this guy?
