How about a truce?

In reference to the media storm surrounding Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting revelations, a recent letter calls on us to “get off our high moral horse and take care of our own character problems.” How about we offer politicians a truce? You stay out of our personal lives and we’ll stay out of yours. But as long as politicians pass laws prohibiting gambling, smoking, trans fats, marijuana and countless other victimless vices, their personal moral failings should be exposed for all to see - with some scorn and ridicule thrown in for good measure.
