Today's best government video

Serious, high-minded journalists will no doubt spend the next few days discussing the case of U.S. Rep. Mark Souder, R-Ind., a socially-conservative, "family-values" Republican who is resigning after confessing an affair with one of his aides.

If you are looking for serious discussion, i.e. is it fair for the media to focus on personal behavior by politicians, look elsewhere. Me, I'm just posting about this because I can't watch his video without laughing. That would be the video the married congressman made with his girlfriend, on the virtues of using the government to promote sexual abstinence.
