Setting a Low Bar

SETTING A LOW BAR….I’ve now seen two cryptic references to this, and sure enough it’s worth clicking through to see. But I’ll save you the trouble:

Rep. Don Sherwood, a Republican fighting for re-election in northeastern Pennsylvania, says in a TV ad that he is ?truly sorry? for cheating on his wife but denies ever abusing the woman he had the affair with.

See? No abuse. That’s family values, baby, family values.
