Credibility-Political Scandal Division

When a 30-year old woman spends an inordinate amount of time with an influential 60-year old man, and brags to her peers about how tight they are, the wicked world draws just one conclusion. John McCain, however, ferociously denies he and lobbyist Vicki Iseman were sexual partners. They were, to quote a cliche almost as old as the Senator, just good friends.

McCain expects to be taken at his word. He should wish he isn't.

Let's accept McCain's version of events. He had a non-sexual friendship with an attractive woman half his age who worked for somebody seeking favors from the government. The relationship scared his staff half to death, but no sex took place.

What does a 60-year old man get from such a relationship? Flattery, that's what. A boost to indefatiguable male sexual ego without the woman having to engage in sex with the body inside which the ego resides.

Frankly, that's just pathetic. That looks about 1000 times worse for McCain than would an actual affair. It brings to mind the late husband of the late Anna Nicole Smith.

When it comes to a potential President of the United States, I'll pick an old goat over an old fool any day.
