You could see it in words that offer an assumption of elitism, or random associates who cause a guilt by association, or in actions like endangering the lives of everyone around you.

Rep. Vito J. Fossella (R-N.Y.) was arrested overnight in Alexandria and charged with driving while intoxicated, court records showed today.

Fossella is scheduled to appear in Alexandria General District Court on May 12 for an advisement hearing, the records said.

No other details were immediately available.

For some reason, issues of character don't often have anything to do with... personal character. Why is that?

UPDATE: It's also got to be one or the other. I mean, it could be all bullshit evenly spread for everyone, or all legitimate issues evenly spread. But when you have Barack Obama the subject of a character assassination campaign on the basis of his former pastor saying "God damn America" and John McCain never touched for saying "God curse and doom America", clearly there's some imbalance here.
