It's Not the Sex...

It's the lying about sex.

That's what they used to say about the Previous Bonehead in the White House.

So let's try, for purposes of strictest symmetry, here, to come up with a parallel construction pertinent to the affairs of today:

It's not the awarding of White House press credentials and access to Valerie-Plame-related documentation to a sleazy Z-list Republican operative posing as a reporter who asks factually incorrect and blatantly partisan questions in a presidential news conference...

It's the lying about sex.

Specifically, it's the fact that a guy who spouts fag-bashing horseshit in public, is actually, quite literally, in the baldest (heh) sense of the word, a manwhore.

Excuse me for a moment while I hankie the green bubbles of schadenfreude off my nose.

Where, oh where, is the outrage?

(Why it's out in the back alley, negotiating a two-hour outcall with a cut-and-buff, high-and-tight ex-USMC topman, Mr. Bennett... What's your excuse?)
