Double standard?

 

Dear Editor,

Now can’t you just laugh when you look at the big picture! Infidelity is not the flavor of life on most people’s list. At least I should hope not. So here’s Herman Cain. Getting knocked down for being such a wretch. How dare someone have anything as awful in their past as he apparently has! Actually, I’m being a bit sarcastic.

The part that is funny (maybe to me only) is that we all of a sudden got values and morals! The poor guy is getting slapped around for his past behaviors and it’s talked about in such a way that if the accusations are true, he’s then a dreadful man. How very, very shame-filled he should be for being so awful. Are the accusations true? Don’t know. Is his past relevant? Perhaps.

I still didn’t get to the funny part. What one does should matter when it comes to morals and values, don’t you think? But don’t you think it should be fair treatment for all as well?

Finally the funny part. When we had an elected person who was on the job getting paid with “our dollars” doing such things that are even hard to mention on paper (nor would you even want your young uns to read about it) it somehow doesn’t get mentioned or remembered. It’s been pushed off to the side. See what would happen to someone working at Mcdonald’s who tried to get away with such actions while on the job–on the time clock. Don’t think the manager or boss would say, “give that man/woman a raise!”

So if the accusations of Cain are so unscrupulous, why don’t we remember the actual and truthfully proven actions of a certain “commander-in-chief”? If someone who’s merely aspiring to be president is so bad, why did/do we allow someone who had actually been in that utmost position–on the job–be and remain acceptable? Isn’t that a rip? I sure thought so.
