Yep, Double Standard.

The inimitable Charles Pierce, in his weekly Friday posting at Eric Alterman's Altercation, reaffirms a point I made in the previous post and pins a bullseye on the sleaziest pair on the contemporary political scene:
John Edwards is pretty far beyond rehabilitation as a public figure at this point, I suppose. (Although why he is, and both Newt Gingrich, who dumped two chronically ill wives because of his own Comely Aide Problem , and John McCain, who dumped his severely injured wife to marry well out in Arizona, are still considered perfectly respectable National Voices, is beyond me.) 
IOIYAR, Charles  (and I like how they expand the definition to include hypocrisy.)
