Wall-to-Wall Spitzer, Weiner. So where was the coverage of Sanford & Vitter?

In case you haven’t noticed, this past weeks news had a Weiner fetish… and that’s not just a bad pun. Since NY Mayoral candidate (and former Liberal-champion for whom I was a huge supporter) Anthony Weiner’s revelation that he continued his admitted bad behavior for more than a year after it forced him to resign in disgrace, the news it seems has […]
