I have to take a breath and read something funny about politics. Slate gives me a scandal flow chart. Awesome.
The best flow?
Scandal! Was it Sex? (Yes) With a teenage male page? (No) With another man? (No) Are you in charge of Clinton's impeachment? (No) Was she a prostitute? (Yes) Are you from Louisiana? (Yes)
= Stay. In. Congress.
Scandal! Was it sex? (No) Was it money? (No) = Stay in Congress.
All told, three Louisianans make the chart. Though Barney Frank makes it twice.
