Pelted off the public stage  

I haven't yet posted about the revelation of Bill Bennett's big blunder, but I guess that's because I regard it as an amusing anecdote a la Boccaccio more than anything else. What I mean is: I don't think I'm constitutionally capable to turning the tables and becoming the monster moralizer, even to ferret out hypocrisy (from all the bombast). Michael Kinsley is a little more zealous.

Suprisingly, I never posted on Rick Santorum's bizarre comments of a couple weeks back either, which, though apparently less career-threatening than Bennett's gambling gaffe, seem to me more dangerous and sinister.
