snopes, the problem is that those liberals are contagious, so they can infect good, upstanding Republicans. That is why bipartisanship is bad, it can lead to outbreaks. Heck, even poor Larry Craig must have been exposed to Democratic cooties in an airport sometime.

At least he had his extramarital affair with a woman, as God intended for him to do.

Oh but he wasn't a real Republican then was he? If this argument sounds familiar, it should.

Y'all still don't get the real problem. You see, it was the eighties, and down in Arkansas there was a young governor whose star was on the rise but he had a problem keeping his pants up. It was looking inevitable even then that Bill Clinton was going to become president and then go on to lie about his sex life. Even among good Christian Republicans, this was causing everyone's moral compass to go all kerflooey, and Domenici couldn't control himself any more than anybody else could!

By the way, has Fox News done the inevitable report on Ex-Sen Pete Domenici, D-NM, yet?
