Steve Benen put up a pretty good construct for why Republican adultery is often viewed less favorably than the Democratic variety:

If you help run Mothers Against Drunk Driving and you’re get caught drunk driving, it’s going to be a bigger deal than the typical DUI. If you’re the local fire chief and you’re caught setting a fire, it’s going to be a bigger deal than the typical arson.

And if you’re part of a party that hails itself as the political arbiter of virtue and morality, it’s going to be a bigger deal when some of your party’s leading figures get caught in sex scandals.

    The Republican claims to the moral majority and family values stance is just political spin to control the populace. They have never been able to walk the walk. Their ethics only consider what is good for the party now, not tomorrow or next year or in five years.
