Behind The Headlines

All's fair in love and politics ... yes?              How many times have we wondered why the "disgraced" wife of a licentious politician stands in stoic solidarity at his side while he spills his guts on live television.  The scene has played out more times than we can count.  (Some recent incidents come to mind.)  It's always the same questions that pass the lips of those who care to gossip about it afterward.  Why does she stay?  How could he embarrass her like that? I would never!  Pundits hint at it, opponents decry her plight.  I've always wondered if the image tells the entire story.  In Hypocrites, my story featured in Rachel Kramer Bussel's Irresistible, I examine the lie that's told to the world because the world commands it.  Who are the hypocrites?  Well, that's for you to decide.
