Clear Division

The chief benefit of a two-party system, among others, is the ease with which anything can be divvied up between the Republicans and the Democrats. Most states and even districts are divvied up as red or blue. Issues are divvied up - abortion for Republicans and healthcare for Democrats.

But the most astounding division is that of sex scandals. Republicans seem to have gotten the gay sex scandals and Democrats seem to have cornered the straight sex scandals.
