The Problem With the Mark Foley's of the World

The problem with ultra-conservatives, who I will call the Mark Foley's of the world, is that they set a standard for themselves so high that no human could live by. Then, when they fall, they fall hard! The Mark Foley's of the world hide behind causes (or the flag) to cover up their humaness, and when they themselves cannot live up to the standards they have set, they tumble with full velocity to the ground. If you're going to set those kind of standards, you better make sure you can really live by them!
