I'm an ordained United Methodist minister no longer pastoring churches, a former media producer with skills ten years out of date, a writer trying to sell my first novel, and a sales associate keeping body and soul together working for the People's Republic of Corporate America. I'm married to the most wonderful woman in the world, who was my best friend for 17 years before we married.

On Congressional Scandal

Bob Somerby at The Daily Howler ( makes a point today. If the Democrats had been prepared this would have been a Katrina moment.

His point, with which I agree, is that the Democrats should have been pounding Congress over its lack of oversight: oversight of the Administration before the Iraq war, oversight of the conduct of the war itself, oversight of Constitutional rights, and now it shows it can't even oversee one of its own, a sexual predator in its midst.

But no. Now, the corporate media screams about a sex scandal while the outrage that should arise from Bob Woodward's book is buried under the Foley scandal.

Sex trumps everything else.
