Things we have learned about politics in the last decade:
That the old adage about being caught with a dead girl or a live boy no longer applies, if you're from the right side of the aisle. Heck, even being diapered by a prostitute doesn't apply.
However, if you're from the wrong side of the aisle, lying about a beej will get you impeached and disbarred.
If I ever go into politics, I know which side I'm joining.
