Maybe a 'Failure to Launch' Would Have Been a Good Thing

John Ensign, a conservative Republican senator from Nevada and possible contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, has admitted to having an extramarital affair with a member of his staff. Even worse, the woman he had the affair with was also married. Not that anyone's counting, but in a sense the senator's libido helped violate TWO sets of marriage vows. And in case that's not bad enough, the woman's husband was a golfing buddy of the senator.

Do I understand the Republicans' position correctly? Same sex unions would destroy the so-called "sanctity of marriage" but boinking the wife of one of your best friends honors it?

Makes perfect sense.
