Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't believe Obama & half the Senate are having gay orgies.  I do believe they are all taking advantage of the financial perks of their positions.  But it is precisely because everyone is doing it that prevents everyone from individual guilt.  If it were one person, one could be outraged, suspend disbelief that such acts are pervasive (see: Rod Blagojevich).  But to go after a 2 of the 3 branches of government for it?   You are simply making their defense for them: it is just the way things are done.  Not to mention that we need people running those two branches of government.  Moral outrage can't govern a nation.
