Quotes to live by...

"If adultery happens in 41% of marriages, if the guy next door is hiring prostitutes, if Brett Favre’s penis scored nearly 2 million views, it’s not the politicians that are the problem, it’s Americans, who sit in turned-on judgment of those who dally sexually while doing so themselves, who dream of getting off in the same way but don’t allow themselves to do so, who devote their work days to looking at the latest leaked cell phone pics of genitals that belong to someone more famous than themselves.

Americans are fascinated by political sex scandals because the politician is doing what Americans are doing but won’t admit, or what they wish they were doing but won’t say, and Americans, rather than confess their natural tendencies or sexual fantasies, would rather criticize those political figures who there, but for the grace of God, are doing what Americans wish they were doing.
— Susannah Breslin
