Hypocrisy in the House of Representatives

quote [ Republican Rep. Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania has announced that he will not seek re-election after a report said he requested that a woman with whom he had an extramarital affair get an abortion. ]

One really can't make this stuff up. "Of course I don't expect the rules to apply to me, they're for those other irresponsible idiots out there."

(Thumb is Janus, the two-faced Roman god of gateways and transitions. As in, "I'm transitioning out of Congress to spend more time with my family.")

"I ask you to respect our privacy during this time." - unlike the privacy I do not grant other families and their difficult decisions. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I continue to be an asshole after the world discovers I am one.

To be fair, the bill he was supporting banned abortion after 20 weeks of gestation. His mistress could very well have been early in the pregnancy it turned out she didn't actually have.

I read that as "god of gateways and transistors". Transistors. Gates. Drains. Clearly too early in the morning.

To be fair, I can't imagine who's be a better god of transistors. Maybe Hermes.
