Alcohol To The Rescue

ONCE AGAIN A politician/celebrity in hot water has run to rehab for cover. With the news Sunday that Mark Foley has checked himself into an alcohol rehab clinic, some are opening wondering if his sex-laced emails were simply the result of intoxication.

Has it come to this? Are we now at a place where we can drive cars into the Capitol (a la Patrick Kennedy), rant against Jews (a la Mel Gibson), or send sexually suggestive emails to minors (a la Mark Foley) and get away with it by blaming alcohol? It seems to be the defense du jour at the moment.
