Believe it or not there are gay people who do not necessarily buy into the whole gay marriage issue. I know some.

What I find sad and pathetic is how the liberals revel in the downfall of another human being. Even one who they might consider a hypocrite.

Agreed Incognito on both issues. This issue is getting old and trite. Ok so people are hypocrites.

Snooze....

I couldn't disagree more II.

The idea that hypocrisy should become a mundane aspect of our political leadership means we should simply stop caring about who we elect. Yea, people become desensitized to this stuff, but it is important to keep pointing it out -- at least it reinforces the disdain for this behavior in the less jaded (younger) generation.

As for gay marriage as an issue - yea, some gays could care less... So what? I know some too.

"Reveling" in the downfall of another human being is appropriate if that person is in a leadership position and is evidently a hypocritical ass who uses his position to denounce a group of people and a behaviour that HE HIMSELF practices. The idea that we shouldn't "judge" our leaders is ludicrous.

"They might consider a hypocrite"... Why is this a liberal/conservative issue? He is a hypocrite -- by definition!

The man is advocating a position -- in OUR government -- a position he obviously doesn't adhere to himself. I don't care that he's gay... But he was caught breaking the law with a male prostitute while denouncing homosexuality as immoral in the halls of Government.... and your concern is "liberals reveling in his downfall" ...

Sorry to break it to you, but that's called "accountability" ... when our leaders turn out to be duplicitous hypocrites who act like the law doesn't apply to them, it is incumbent on the populace to hold them accountable. Again -- the issue isn't sex: he can fuck who he likes... but don't fuck a guy and tell your constituents that its "immoral".

I simply fail to see why people don't consider this relevant... Perhaps if it was a democrat the comments would be different... at least from the conservatives.

Funny how conservatives spout "personal responsibility" when talking about welfare mothers, but when people with actual power abuse it, we shouldn't point it out...

Oh, we should most definitely "judge" our leaders. But that a man may be gay doesn't make him a hypocrite for thinking gays shouldn't be legally entitled to marry.

With regard to his status as "leader", perhaps we should stop putting so much holiness and sanctity in our "leaders" and take back more of the power to ourselves.

When you demand sainthood of "leaders", you get conmen who are frauds. Truly "good" people would never engage in the sale of the soul that is demanded by politics. Let's be realistic about the nature of politics and stop being so distracted by the trivia of who is fucking whom.
