There's nothing like a little sex scandal to restore one's faith in politics as the greatest source of trashy entertainment. So, thank you, Missouri Speaker of the House John Diehl for wrecking your career by exchanging a string of cringe-worthy texts with a 19-year-old female intern.
The girl was an enthusiastic participant in this sexting, using cheery little emoticons to emphasize that she was ready to romp. “I just want you to be in charge,” she wrote. “After all, I do like a man in charge” -- emphasizing that point with a little winking yellow balloon head. Now, consider that Diehl is a doughy, middle-aged man with thinning hair, a double chin and eyes that are a little too close together. Not exactly Brad Pitt or
