When our role models, celebs, public figures, politicians make the head lines for having committed adultery or cheating on their mate or even being with a hooker, how does this affect us?
Clinton/Lewinsky affair, was followed in the media like a soap opera if not like a football game. We were on top of it. Was it because he was president and it was our political system in jeopardy? If you yank them from the celebrity status, would we have cared so much?
What if every affair and scandal went on public record? Joe Blow and Martha Bell have been sleeping with each other, dog is the witness, wife to leave him this weekend.
The most recent scandal of course is Tiger Woods and is multitude of banging whatever walks. Sex addict version of Betty Ford signs him up, hides him away from public eye, media dies down a bit and then bam! He is back on the tube again. When was golf compared to the presidency as being "why do we care?"
How much are we affected by the people in the public eye when they screw up? Is it just entertaining to have crap unfold in front of us, like a reality show we take personally.
Here are some scandals, did you follow these? Do you wonder why you even know so much?
But don't forget the women
