And boots, for that matter, which have allegedly been knocking in the McCain campaign.
Bill Clinton fools around with an intern. He gets raked over the coals, dragged through the muck, and, scorched and dirty, gets impeached.
John McCain allegedly has a relationship with a lobbyist, for whom, say the Post and the Times, he used his leverage as chair of the Senate Commerce Committee to do favors. He might not even lose his presidential bid.
Upon reflection, though, this couldn't possibly help him with the social conservatives that are already a little leery of him. After all, they're the only ones who actually care about crap like this. But there are legions of people who don't, in their heart of hearts, care about this crap either,
but will absolutely vote against him to convince themselves that they're moral people.
I've no idea what the full fallout will be. I kind of hope it ends up with the GOP nominating someone completely impractical like Huckabee to run against Obama. (And let's face it, it's looking more like Obama every day.)
I'm not going to attack John McCain for this, either. I don't think the personal lives of politicians, unless they're selling secrets to the Chinese, are any of our business; a product of my formative years, which were during the Clinton presidency.
But it's hard not to crow, just a little bit.
