This is another example of why Republicans place too much faith in capitalism. Rational self-interest clearly didn't work here. Let's see, a few months of clandestine fun vs. ruining your life. Not hard to run that cost-benefit analysis! Of course, there's no point in gloating since this is not a strictly Republican problem. But it seems a little more complicated than just a fling - the woman and her husband both worked for Ensign, each in a highly sensitive position. It's a reminder that the news doesn't stop, even when there is a potential revolution on the other side of the world. Stay tuned!

Oh, look, a scandal
Sen. John Ensign yesterday admitted to having an affair with a staffer. Oops. Not good for the presidential ambitions! It is somehow not surprising that he is the senator from Nevada. Insert bad "what happens in Vegas" joke here.
