Republican VP

McCain has chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate.

It would be so classic Republican for it to come out that he's having an affair with her. So classic, indeed. *waits*

edit: I take that back. It would be more classic for him to be having a gay affair, so... nevermind.

No, no. Republicans are corrupted by power and money. Democrats are corrupted by sex.

Hey, I'm a big believer in stereotypes. How do presidents get their kicks?

Kennedy? Horniest president on record.
Nixon? Anything to stay in power.
Reagan? Iran-Contra = the thrill of defying Congress
Clinton? Being president is a great way to meet girls.
G.W. Bush? Unilateralism, torture.

That would be funny if it were still true, but unfortunately Republicans are taking over the sex scandals in recent years (Remember Larry Craig's "wide stance"?) Here's a page for reference: http://www.dkosopedia.com/wiki/Republican_Sex_Scandals

That's debatable. I do think that the GOP has the market cornered on homosexual sex scandals, though. Hence "GOPedophiles". I also think that the GOP is probably singled out because of the way this makes hypocrisy out of the "family values" platform:

That should have read "the GOP has the market cornered on underage homosexual scandals". Sorry for the lack of editing.

Hence the edit I made before all this.

I guess I don't think of extra-marital affairs as sex scandals unless they involve something illegal.
