Well ! Have to start someplace ! Perhaps it will catch on.

The sea, I am afraid, is only rising slightly. Is it be merely a slight sea breeze?
I would hope that the mighty tide would rise and bowl away the disingenuous before election time. With incantations, the media will educe these changes. May their light shine forth !

'Tis good to see some high-profile individuals paying for their misdeeds, but its just the tip of the icegerg.
When the momentary euphoria has vanished, we'll continue seeing things as they really are.

The epidemic of dishonesty and other indiscretions are not cured overnight.
And politicians will continue to be politicians!

Why should I care if these people apologize to me anyway?

The politicians are acting like Hollywood stars who apologize for their drug use, go to rehab for a few months, find Jesus, and do it again. Here is what Peggy Noonan has to say about Huckabee with thoughts on Hill and Bill:

Speaking of apologies, are we going to get one from Lawrence O'Donnell on TMG this week? That guy makes Huckabee look like a boy scout.

As for Michael Vick and Conrad Black, they broke the law and are paying a price for their crimes. I'd rather have someone emerge from jail a better person, than issue an insincere apology before going to jail.

Still digesting the Mitchell report.

There is one person that I have yet to hear apologize in his LONG career of PERSONAL destruction and that is America's self-appointed Minister of Vice and Virtue. Take a look at his career:

and what is Al Sharpton up to these days:

No wonder Al "Do as I say, not as I do" Sharkton is endorsing Hillary and not Obama. He seems to have a lot more in common with Hill and Bill.

Monica, I hope there is a sea change going on but I don't know where it will go from here. Everyone believes the ends justifies the means and as you pointed out above, most are not repentant after being caught with their hand in the cookie jar. What is shocking to me is the lengths that the Clinton machine will go to get her elected and how the leftie media is willing to sell their soul and join forces with her in perverting the political process. The latest I've heard is that political operatives from the Hillary campaign are prepared to hijack the Iowa Caucus' by planting operatives everywhere. They justify their unethical behavior by putting out their delusional stories about how the big bad Republcans prevent blacks from voting--criminal behavior justified by delusions.

And let me say this, Hillary didn't apologize because she was really sorry, she apologized because her campaign is collapsing and she is losing the black vote hand over fist. She is caught between a rock and a hard place, the more she trashes Obama, the more black votes she loses. That's why she apologized, not because she suddenly got religion. For most of the people who apoloziged, they did it to stop the bleeding not because they suddenly saw the light.

Mormonism is NOT Christianity. They say their Book of Mormon is also devine scripture on a par with the HOLY BIBLE. That alone disqualifies that religion to be related in any way to Christianity. It is a polytheistic religion and does not hold to the Trinity as the one and ONLY God. Mormonism is no more Chrisian than is Hinduism.

Romney is a flip-flopper of the first order. He is prolife, then pro-choice, anti Gay rights, pro Gay rights, then anti-Gay rights. He flips and flops so much you can get dizzy just watching his career.

My first choice for President is Fred Thompson. My second choice right now is Mike Huckabee. Both are social conservatives and both have a consistent track record in that social conservatism. I can find a few issues with each that I disagree with, but at least they are consistent. Also, I must say I love Huckabee's idea to abolish the Income tax and replace it with a national sales tax.

Isn't Christianity also polytheistic? Its followers worship a god they call God and his son they call Jesus. I'm not a mathematician but I think I counted two entities that they worship, so that's not monotheism.

SteveOk

I think it's important to respect everyones religion and repect the Bill of Rights and our freedom of religion. Accusing Mormons of being a cult or not worthy to be called "Christian" or American or anything else is ridiculous. We shouldn't have religious tests for those seeking political office, period.

Fred, as for Christianity being polytheisic, Christianiy believes that the Trinity is made up of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit but that they are not separate but one God. That is solid Christian doctrine taught by all the major Christian religions and backed up by any objective interpretation of the Bible.

FK

Oh, so now Christians worship three gods, but say they are monotheistic because the three gods are really one. If some other culture tried to pass this off, we'd call it BS.

"Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge." (Job 38: 2)

"The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God." (Psalm 14: 1)

Good idea to cite religious scripture to counter criticism of religion. I don't care what some psalm says. How about citing solid sociological analyses that there is an actual benefit to organized cults ... oops, I mean religion.

charlie

The Psalmist is so right!
Even an idiot would know that creation needs a creator. But, I suppose, some have retrogressed beyond that.

Unfortunately, the 'ologies' and 'isms' of this world, instead of enlightening the mind, seem to have a debilitating effect on some.

Wonder how long these 'wise guys' can survive without oxygen, which is obviously provided by someone or something!!

Perhaps we had to have some kind of origin, but that doesn't mean we have to believe in fairy tales to explain that origin.
