Letters: Voters act like abuse victims
Few would condemn a person for throwing out a cheating spouse, while more might criticize a spouse who continually accepts back in a drunken, cheating, lying husband or wife all the while defending them.
Oddly, most people in this country have this kind of strange love affair with their politicians. It is somehow acceptable when their own elected official comes back home, distorts the truth and lies to them. They welcome them back with whatever flimsy concocted excuse given. This makes these D.C. politicians even more emboldened and brazen.
To expect the political parties to address corruption is a pipe dream.
Not since the crumbling Roman Empire has the world seen such morally inept and intellectually insipid animated stooges as Hatch, McCain, Boehner, Reid, Pelosi and Feinstein, plus the Bushes, Clintons and Obamas. Pathetic.
