This is too good to be true.
Years back we had Slick Willie who couldn't keep Willard in his britches. And now we have a Congressman named Weiner caught sexting pictures of his wiener to a young lady. After a week of denials and side-stepping, a young nurse-to-be brought herself forward, challenging Weiners assertion that he did not text his wiener to that woman. When it was a certainty he couldn't deny it, he held a teary-eyed press conference where he admitted to sexting activity with "approximately six" women.
Am I missing anything?
Observations from the peanut gallery.
1) As Henry Kissinger once said, power is the greatest aphrodisiac. If you want to know why so many men seek power, well maybe you get a hint here. This not-so-good-looking man was engaged in a pretty steamy text message exchange (complete with pictures) with a not-so-bad-looking young woman. That's the one of six we know about.
2) Getting caught with your pants down in the information age seems like a pretty common thing. But men in power can't help themselves. Democrats and Republicans alike get caught in compromising situations. (Remember Arnold???)
3) It seems that when Republicans get caught, they resign. When Democrats get caught, they stay on and are reborn. You tell me - which party is the party of good times??? (joke)
4) When is a politician caught with a major case of bimbo eruptions going to admit flat out that he just did it and it's none of your business? If you're going to get caught anyway, and your politician wife probably knows you're a slut, why not???
