not a good standard to go by

Tell me, which serial killer has killed the fewest people? I am not ascribing any moral equivalency between serial killers and senators. Rather, I am trying to make a point that saying someone is the least bad of a lot is not a criterion we should use to determine whether someone should get our support.
