So. A Senator from my state of Nevada may face criminal charges. Seems like old times. But if you think that former Sen. John Ensign's story is just a simple case of a fling with a staffer, and a payoff. . .well, watch this clip from Thursday's The Rachel Maddow Show. Rachel's been following this story from the beginning, and was one of the few to report on Ensign's C-Street connection (and connection to a host of other C-Street scandals). Rachel's clip below is engrossing, and would make a hell of a movie. But the ending isn't written yet. Will Ensign go to jail? Will Sen. Coburn? Will C-Street ever be exposed for all the creepy religion/politics stew being cooked up there? The Uganda "kill the gays" ties? Will the Republicans' legendary hypocrisy around morality and "the sanctity of marriage" ever go away, or be laughed about by the general public? Time will tell.
