How many times have we seen THAT look before?
So, yet another politician has been caught cheating on his wife. Naturally the poor woman is expected to "stand by her man" when you know she wants to tell him off (and probably has). Can somebody please tell my why the wife (and lets be clear... it's always the wife) has to stand next to her husband during these oh so apologetic press conferences? I understand that it somehow makes the cheating man look more sympathetic if his wife appears to have forgiven him (even though it's mere hours after the big reveal). Just once, once, I'd like to see the wife stand up there and bitch slap her husband in front of the world. Or, better yet, walk out, hand in hand with the asshole, then stop short of the podium and wave him up as if to say "There you go hot shot. You got us into this mess, go get us out." Just once I'd like to see that happen. That would be beautiful. Instead, the politician's handlers drug the wife up and guilt her into wearily standing next to her husband with that familiar, miserable expression on her face. It's all so ridiculous. I tell ya, one day some politician is going to cheat on the wrong woman and she's going to decide to be uncooperative and publicly flip out on the turd. I can't wait!
