Like swinging a bat attempting a sixer

I found nothing more interesting in the Edwards scandal than his choice of words while describing his affair. The statement started thus:
In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs...
Error in judgment? Intrigued, I googled the phrase in combination with "Spitzer" and it turns out that a number of commentators had attributed Spitzer's acts also to judgment error.

God withheld an inherent morality from Man, but afforded him a cognitive intelligence like no other animal on earth. Why blame judgment?
