I hate the Gannon/Guckert story. I hated the Mary Cheney and Maya Keyes stories. I hate the fact that all these personal exposes are relevant and newsworthy. And they ARE relevant and newsworthy, just as are the reports that Rick Santorum is financing his children's education at Pennsylvania taxpayer's expense even though they live and are educated in Virginia.

I hate the fact that Republican leaders are hypocritical, emotional sadists. They manipulate the good intentions and cultural fears of religious middle-Americans by demonizing Democratic tolerance while experiencing, even luxuriating in, and hiding from the voters their own human frailties while trumpeting their "righteousness."

Let the public beware of this institutional hypocrisy. Christ said of a prostitute, "He that is without sin, let him be the first to cast the first stone." The "religious" wingnuts have long forgotten that lesson of humility. And as long as they do, their lives will be subject to examination and exposure. It's the reasonable, and fair, consequence of their own policy of intolerance.
