They're All Degenerates
I want to mention something my wife said several years ago, in response to a previous outbreak of Republican sleaziness. She suggested that, in response to the fact that a few Republicans showed a conscience in regard to the Nixon impeachment, civil rights legislation and other such things, the leaders of the Republican party decided that nobody would be allowed to advance in Republican politics unless they had some disgusting secret that could be held over their heads, to keep them from making one move outside the party line. I think she was pretty much joking when she first said that, but over the years, both of us have more and more begun to suspect that something like this is true. Well, here's another piece of evidence that she might be right.
