Fact is, the Democrats are praying Condit will not resign (or get arrested), but it has nothing to do with right and wrong, the public and the private, or sex and lies. They are only worried that in any special off-year election, Condit‘s open seat will be snatched by the GOP.

So, let the coverage continue. This is a story that not only resuscitated but actually managed to unite the opposing media-pundit teams from the salad days of Zippergate. Gore Whores like Lanny Davis and Cynthia Alskne together at last and in agreement with conservative columnist Ann Coulter and ex--federal prosecutor Barbara Olsen.
