They'd never work in this town again

An interesting editorial on the ethics of investigating potentially homosexual Christian conservatives. I'm actually kind of torn on the issue, but this last paragraph is just beautiful writing:

"It would be the height of hypocrisy for a conservative to embrace her party’s most extreme views while simultaneously embracing a member of the same sex. The GOP rank and file takes its values seriously. Just imagine the outrage were Rush Limbaugh revealed to be a drug addict, William Bennett a compulsive gambler, Gary Bauer a philanderer, Strom Thurmond the father of a illegitimate black child, or George Bush a coke fiend. They’d never work in this town again."
