It’s a good thing Tim Mahoney is a member of a party that respects women and has an enlightened view on gender issues. A Republican caught in flagrante delicto might have handled this in a misogynystic or sexist way:

You might conclude that Mahoney had treated his former girlfriend shabbily, but she’s being treated no worse than most other women that Democrats find inconvenient – from Sarah Palin, to Hillary Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, to Chandra Levy, to Paula Jones. How long before the lamestream media begins to notice that Democrats are perfectly happy to destroy the reputations of women who stand in their way?
