Rielle Hunter

I behaved badly. That may seem obvious to you but it's taken me a long time to admit that, even to myself. For years I was so viciously attacked by the media and the world that I felt like a victim. I now realize that the attacks are actually beside the point. The point is: I behaved badly.

This week Bibi Netanyahu addressed Congress; President Obama extended the Patriot Act for another four years; prosecutors moved another step closer to indicting John Edwards for misusing campaign funds to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter; and Newt Gingrich scrambled to reconcile his claims of being "very frugal" with his $500,000 revolving line of credit at Tiffany. Meanwhile, in a political version of The Hangover sequel, the GOP's leadership, drunk on Tea (Party), did something wild and crazy -- creating a plan to gut and privatize Medicare, and pressuring elected Republicans to vote for it -- only to wake up in New York's 26th District with a pounding morning-after headache. If Democrats don't provide a cure by agreeing to deep cuts in Medicare as part of a deal to raise the government's debt ceiling, this GOP hangover could last until November 2012.
