Senator John Ensign (R-NV) about the Clinton-Lewinsky Scandal:
[It’s] “an embarrassing moment for the country.” “I think we have to feel very sad for the American people and Hillary and Chelsea.” [Clinton should resign;] “I came to that conclusion recently, and frankly it’s because of what he put his whole Cabinet through and what he has put the country through,” he was quoted saying at the time. “He has no credibility left.” (link)
Fast-forward to today: “Last year I had an affair [with a married woman]. I violated the vows of my marriage,” Ensign said at a brief news conference. “It is the worst thing I have ever done in my life. If there was ever anything in my life that I could take back, this would be it.” (link)
I don’t care whether he had an affair or not. That’s between him, his family, and the family of the married woman he had an affair with.
What I can’t stand is the hypocrisy of blasting someone else for adultery, then being an adulterer yourself.
