The other day an actor friend of mine told me he got a small part in A Streetcar Named Desire.
"That's great," I said. "I heard that's a good show. What's it about?"
"It's about this doctor who takes a crazy lady to a nuthouse," he said.
That's what's going on in this appearance on Thom Hartmann's The Big Picture.
It starts out being about ABC's news ethics in adding the Marianne Gingrich interview to the Public Trust's permanent collection.
For Hartmann, it's about the racial disparities in political sex scandals, as seen in the title of the attached video.
For me, it's all about whether law enforcement agencies should take an interest in whatever erotic refinements Sen. David Vitter (R-Louisiana) may have purchased from another consenting adult.
Maybe Newsweek's Eleanor Clift stays on topic.
