Can you please NOT stand by your man for once?

Note to Mrs. Spitzer, Vitter, Craig, Clinton, etc., etc., and all the "Stand by Your Man" political wives: How about you refuse to be a part of their hypocrisy? How about you say,"No, I won't stand there next to you while you apologize for catting around in brothels/ men's rooms/ wherever. Maybe you could learn something by watching this video of a Chinese newscaster with a cheating husband. She refused to leave the podium during a pre-Olympics hoopla event, instead publicly calling out her husband and the others on stage for their part in this charade.

Of course, this being China, she is now in prison and certainly will be there until after the Olympics. But Human Rights don't seem to be much of a concern for Americans anymore... goes with the general atmosphere of hypocrisy, I suppose.

Thank you for saying what had to be said! What in the world are these women thinking of when they stand by their man as he humiliates them in front of the country? Honestly, women need to stand up for themselves. If I were her, I'd be throwing his stuff out on the lawn while he was giving his little apology.

LOL! Do you remember in "Waiting to Exhale" when Angela Bassett's character takes all her cheating husband's clothes, throws them in the backseat of the car, pours gasoline on them, and sets it on fire and walks away?

That's what I'm talkin' about, ladies!

I totally agree.

Mrs. Spitzer looked so horrified I don't think her standing there did him much good anyway!

The Washington Post described her expression as that of a "food poisoning victim"!

Hey, we can't say anything to China because THEY OWN OUR COUNTRY.

at least most of it's debt.
