There comes a time in all of our lives when we've behaved in one of those really annoying Holier than Thou" kind of ways.
People who do so on a regular basis, and I include myself in that category, come in various shapes, sizes and flavors. The world of faith, that of politics and certainly the world of finance have all seen their fair share of characters espousing the kinds of attitudes that have most people praying for someone to be taken down a notch or two.
Jerry Fallwell, John Edwards and Bernie Madoff come to mind very quickly.
There are so many more of the one time high flying, but then fallen angels, than I could possibly ever fit into the pages of this blog.
But in America our fallen stars can recover and become rehabilitated so quickly. Probably no nation in the world practices the concept of foregiveness as well as we do in America.
Either that, or our collective short term memory has taken a really big hit from way too many ganja hits over the years.
How else do you explain the phenomenon of Newt Gingrich?
Along with the late Henry Hyde (R - Illinois), no two were more vocal and critical of Bill Clinton when his literal and figurative peccaddillloes came to light.
Hyde trumped them all by having a 'baby momma" hidden from the public's views for all those years, although Gingrich wasn't far behind.
Gandhi was reported to have said "I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians."
Of course, these days, that quote would be artisitically toyed with a bit by the likes of Jon Stewart to something like "I like Christ, but Christians? Eh, not so much."
