When it comes to the world of politics, there are times when an shady act can fairly be categorized as a betrayal. It usually comes in the form of someone choosing expediency over principle.

I used to watch The King of Queens with my wife from time to time. Though it wasn’t one of our favorite sitcoms, it was usually good for some laughs. The star of the show, Kevin James, did a great job of portraying loveable delivery driver Doug Heffernan. Heffernan was a fun character because in…
