The jokes are easy to come by, but once the excitement dies down, we are forced to take stock of the state of the US Congress. Whether or not this moron gets reelected, or even gets to serve out his term, pales in comparison to the continuing travesty that is our federal government.
Is there even any point in recounting the number of degenerates who have held public office for decades? And, we might ask, what about the ones who are clever or lucky enough not to be caught?
In the meantime, this country as we know it is rapidly going down the tubes—your tax dollars at work. The incompetence and fecklessness have always been there, but license to be lewd and lascivious is a relatively new phenomenon.
As even the most clueless libertine must realize by now, these current events are a direct result of giving Bill Clinton a free pass.

When all decorum is gone, what more can we expect?
Oh yes, we'll be sure to hear the mantra: "If his wife forgives him, who are we to condemn him?" The problem is that the offense was not just against his wife, who is likely part of a "business arrangement" marriage, anyway. The offense was against our country and our traditions, which are rapidly disappearing.
The real joke is on us, only it's not funny at all.
