Rational, nonaddictive people find it difficult to imagine how otherwise functioning adults can behave so irrationally and contrary to their own best interests. But they do. That is not to excuse behavior but the “What was he thinking?” incredulity that we all experience when we hear of these incidents really is only answered by: “He wasn’t thinking, at least not rationally.” As for the lawyer, I’m sure Craig couldn’t even bring himself to tell his wife let alone a stranger what he had been accused of doing. The whole sorrid mess will hopefully end, at least for the public and pundits, when he resigns.
