As I understand (or, at least, thought I understood) things, so long as you're a "Democrat," you can engage in sex acts with youthful interns in the Oval Office, and be caught dead-to-rights suborning their perjury concerning same, and that's...no big deal.
And if you're a *gay* "Democrat," your boyfriend can run a brothel out of your apartment, and that, too, is...no big deal.
So why all the fuss about Anthony Weiner's relatively tame internet misadventures?
I'm genuinely puzzled. I honestly don't get it. What am I missing, here? After Barney Frank & Bill Clinton, I thought it was pretty much settled that the Dems can do whatever they want, sexually speaking, and that traditional rules about sex only apply to the "Repugs."
