Personal sex is personal. Public policy is public. The two shouldn’t be mixed. Politicians should not be denied public office on the basis of their private sex lives.
Nonetheless, the National Enquirer says that it has evidence that Sarah Palin had an extramarital sexual affair recently. The publication says it’s going to release a big story about it all next week.
That’s titillating news, but hardly surprising. Todd Palin seems to almost always out of the home, on an oil rig or a fishing boat.
But really, it doesn’t matter. It might not even be true.
Sarah Palin is a bad vice presidential candidate because she is inexperienced, poorly educated, inconsistent, unethical, disrespectful of the Constitution, politically extremist and mentally unstable. We don’t need a Palin sex scandal to conclude that Sarah Palin should never be given a job in the White House.
If Sarah Palin is really getting some action on the side, that’s her business, and her husband’s business. It isn’t ours.
