What a revolting display

"To be clear, I have never met these any of these women or had physical relationships at any time."

This is something you're proud to admit?  Look, I'm a fairly libertarian leaning conservative.  I've always felt some restraint regarding Bill Clinton's escapades - whose grave crime in my mind was lying before the Constitution he swore to defend.  It was a calculated act of complete disregard for the rule of law.  Cheating on your wife is an egregious sin but it's also a very personal matter.  We have no idea what goes on behind someone's closed doors.  That doesn't make it right, it just makes it none of our business.  Lying in a court of law was our business and it's a distinction that few people to this day seem able to grasp.

But this?  This guy didn't have consensual sex with anyone.  He didn't have an adult relationship with another woman.  He just sent grotesque images of himself in various stages of undress to random women whom he barely knew - right after getting married no less.  There's no "Well, maybe they met and it was love at first sight like Dr. Zhivago or something."  There's just gross picture's of this jerk's crotch sent to random girls whom he presumably knew only by Twitter photos and Internet handles.  What kind of a scumbag behaves like this? 

I don't believe in kicking people while they're down.  But I also don't believe in false apologies.  Too many people even on the right are saying essentially "At least he owned up to it."  Sorry, but that's a load of crap.  He owned up to it after being caught and trying to cover it up and realizing he had to cut his losses.  Furthermore, his apology stinks. 

He couldn't just admit that his behavior was deplorable.  He actually bragged that he "never met any of these women or had physical relationships" with them, failing to grasp how much more of a degenerate this makes him.  He even had the unmitigated gall to reassure us all that his wife is "not responsible for any of this."  Really Congressman?  Thanks for clearing her good name, you unbelievable jerk.

Let's put it this way.  If a close friend or family member I knew cheated on his wife and confided in me for counsel, we'd sit down and have an adult conversation about it.  I'd listen to what he had to say and give him whatever advice or feedback he might ask of me.  If a close friend of mine came to me and confessed this... I might punch his damn lights out.
