    I don’t get it. Is adultery still frowned upon? Our culture celebrates every other type of sex act imaginable but still flagellates someone who gets caught in adultery.

    One of many double standards we live with.

    The same American that goes to a “save the whales” march in the morning will stop by a “kill the unborn” rally in the afternoon.

    If only Petraeus would tell the press “so what”, and take them to task for their hypocrisy.

      It’s only frowned upon when it’s committed by a conservative. It’s ballyhooed here because the press would rather hype it than cover the Libya scandal. That’s actually the double standard being exhibited. Not that the others don’t exist.

        You’re probably right.
