Society seems to be taking a puritan attitude towards anyone in the public eye, especially politics. They have to be 'more Catholic than the pope' and never say or do anything immoral, unethical or controversial (Trump exepted). A guy who was expected to run in the upcoming election in Ontario quit because a paper discovered a few past facebook postings, some years old, which were vaguely naughty. They were bascially the kind of facebook posts almost any young man might post, but in today's atmosphere regular guys are anathema.

It's a strange and suspicious reversal of roles for the Democrats/Liberals to suddenly get puritanical. John Macdonald built a great country. Does it matter that he was a drunk?
Trump - Watch what he does, not how he says it.

 If it's us or them, I choose us
