Several segments on last night's The Ed Show were devoted to the "sexting" scandal around New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner. Mike Rogers, the über-blogger and investigative reporter known for outing closeted anti-gay politicians such as Ken Mehlman and Larry Craig, offered some context.
"The Republicans are great about making it about people when it's about principle. And they have no principles. You just heard RNC Chairman Reince Priebius say, 'We don't want to revisit that,' of course you don't, because it will show exactly how hypocritical you are. Anthony Weiner hasn't done anything illegal, like paying prostitutes. David Vitter has. That's why they deflect."
