I am sick of pathetic apologies from public figures for "sins" that have nothing to do with their public duties and usually aren't even illegal.
Why can't one of these powerful guys just tell the media and the public to "Buzz Off"?
The first elected official who has the guts to say "My private life is my business including what I post on Twitter or Craigs List or what I do in airport restrooms or which reporters or staffers I am banging or who are my love children" will have my respect and probably my vote.
If there is an ethical violation or a wrongdoing that directly relates to their office, then I want to hear about it. If not it is none of our business.
The voyeurism in US culture is really out of hand.
when i think of things i want to see and hear from public officials, the name Bud Dwyer springs to mind, there was a man who knew how to hold a press conference
