For those who follow all the news of sexual misconduct, as I do, this has been a banner week. On the reality show we call news, third place goes to former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (aka Sperminator). Schwar ... oh hell, Arnold admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock with a member of his household staff 10 years ago. All we can say is "Happy Birthday."
In second place we have former I.M.F. chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn (aka DSK), who tried to force his attentions on a chamber maid at his $3,000-a-night hotel. Apparently he didn't understand what was meant by turn down service. By the way, I.M.F. is the International Monetary Fund, not the Impossible Mission Force.
But first place goes to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (aka the US Conference of Catholic Bishops), which commissioned a report blaming the clergy sex abuse scandal on lack of training and the loose morals of the 1960's and 1970's. Evidently it was all just a simple misunderstanding. The priests were never told not to molest the children in their churches.
Stay tuned for further developments.
