There's been an epidemic of Palinitus sweeping the nation this week. Conservatives and politicians are dropping like flies.
- First, Representative Eric Massa (D-NY) announced he wouldn't seek re-election after allegations of sexually harassing a male staffer surfaced.
- Then anti-gay Republican California state senator Roy Ashburn was arrested for drunk driving after leaving a popular Sacramento gay bar with an unidentified male companion. Ashburn divorced his wife a few years ago and recently announced he wouldn't be running Congress.
- Finally, Don Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association, has stepped down from the leadership of the organization due to health reasons. Wildmon has been plagued by ill health in recent years as his organs were sucked into the black hole where his heart used to be.
