High infidelity

Don’t get the wrong idea; I have not lived my life on a pedestal.
When the Final Ledger sheet comes out, I’m sure my sins will add up like the national debt in this country.
I just hope God grades on a rather liberal curve.
But are us guys idiots or what?
The latest example of outright stupidity allegedly belongs to Chris Hansen, the host of NBC’s “To Catch a Predator,” who has reportedly been cheating on his wife.
Hansen, 52, a father of two who resides with his wife, Mary, in Connecticut, has been carrying on a four-month affair with Kristyn Caddell, 30, a news anchor at WPTV in West Palm Beach, Fla., according to National Enquirer reports.
The two have allegedly been hooking up for months.
How about this Anthony Weiner (yep, pronounced like the hot dog that goes by the same name) character? Supposedly intelligent, he goes and tweets lewd photos of himself to young women.
What is it about  people like Hansen and Weiner? Is it ego, a lack of common sense or both? I wonder how John Edwards is doing these days? Now there is a real champ. His wife had cancer. He had an affair. He already has kids. His mistress has a kid. Oh, the consternation; where do you spend Father’s Day?
Edwards was indicted by a federal grand jury over $925,000 spent to keep his mistress and their baby in hiding during the peak of his 2008 campaign for the White House.
Speaking of kids, what about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s litter? He hires a maid. He impregnates a maid. She has a child who is 13 years old now and I’ll bet you the Terminator did not attend one of that son’s birthday parties. Forget the fact that the former governor of California was already married with kids.
This blog could go on forever. It could be the War and Peace of blogs. Forget Evans, the author could be Tolstoy. There is certainly no shortage of sex scandals. Tiger Woods and his affairs. Larry Craig and his wide stance. Eliot Spitzer and his longing for paid employees. Bill Clinton and his ardent support of internships.
I’m no saint, folks, but the list of sinners seems to be growing longer and longer. Does anyone know Kwame Kilpatrick’s prison address?
