Sure, I get that it’s “funny” because yet another Republican was caught saying one thing while doing the opposite.
What I’m saying is that alcoholism and drunk driving is a sad thing that can affect anybody; it’s almost never funny; and that owning up to it and facing the consequences is about all anyone with a shred of decency can do.
Republicans don’t hold a monopoly on drunk-driving politicians. This guy doesn’t hold a candle to Ted Kennedy, who is still the poster boy there. And this certainly doesn’t qualify as an example of Inherent Democratic Superiority to rally around.
