But don’t you think that political officials should be held to a higher standard? They know when they take their jobs that their moves, personal and political, will be in the spotlight. The same goes for athletes, actors, etc. It’s practically part of the job description.
Fuck no. Only idiots hold athletes, actors, and politicians to a higher standard. That kind of thinking is what creates paparazzi and congressional hearings on major league baseball.
Having high standards is one thing, but holding anyone to a higher standard than you would hold yourself is a fundamental exercise in hypocrisy.
