The Most Shocking Thing About the Matt Gaetz Scandal

Whatever the full scope of the tsunami that is (or perhaps isn’t, see below) about to engulf the 38-year-old Congressman from Pensacola, the most shocking thing about it is that, aside from possibly his own mother, literally no one is shocked, or even mildly surprised. Twitter was awash this week with pundits, staffers and just plain folks who knew that this scion of panhandle royalty has a serious drug habit, a lack of self control when it comes to underage sexcapades (A/K/A rape), and the sharing of photos of same, including on the floor of the Florida State House.
