....we must be:
~The punishment for oral sex in the Oval Office with an intern???
You become a respected elder Statesman!!
The punishment for stomping on an American Flag (Lil Wayne) while spewing hate filled lyrics during a Hip Hop performance...
Aw..he really didn't mean it!!
The punishment for sitting in a Church where your Pastor shouts out from the pulpit, "God Damn America??"
You become President of the United States!!!!
The punishment for showing your puny chest and gherkin-size penis on a Congressional Web Site???
You get to run for Mayor of New York!!!!!
And, the punishment for cavorting with prostitutes on a taxpayer-funded trip while Governor of New York (Eliot Spitzer),
You wind up as a political analyst on CNN!!!
BUT. The punishment for Celebrity Chef, Paula Deen, who admitted using the dreaded "N" word in private conversations years ago.
An instantaneous termination by the Food Network plus media-wide public scorn and a complete destruction of her earning capability in the future.
Are we Nuts???! Have we lost the ability to distinguish right from wrong !??
