Ok, herself says I gotta get out of gloomy groove

But, how can I with news like this, from Yahoo news site:
Sen. John Ensign of Nevada, a leading Republican mentioned as a potential presidential candidate, admitted Tuesday he had an extramarital affair with a woman who was a member of his campaign staff.

You probably know it all already, but here's the whole story. What are we to think when Rs are boinking the help, just like Ds, and Ds are fiddling legislation for the corps, just like Rs?
I just happened on a cogent quotation from H.L. Mencken: "Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under." I intermittently aspire to decency and constantly feel the shame.

The same Monsieur Mencken who said, "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard." Don't stick it in too far, your honor.
