I’m so sick and tired of the stupid, narrowminded crap that passes for a political message these days. Â Yes, what Representative Anthony Weiner did was a distraction. Â Yes, it’s an annoyance. Â But for the establishment, including DNC Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to call for Weiner’s resignation? Â Please do us all a favor and shut the hell up.
What Weiner did WAS NOT AGAINST THE LAW. Â It is an inconvenience. Â It’s a distraction. Â But again, NOT AGAINST THE LAW. Â He’s a stupid man. Â Men lie when it comes to sex. Â They always have, and they always will. Â Deal with it.
We’re not the puritanical society that these people want us to be, and I don’t hold political leaders to any other standard than I would a stranger on the street (though in this day and age, I’d probably be nicer to a stranger on the street than a Congressperson). Â Get over it and move on. Â This is a distraction that’s keeping you from doing your jobs. Â And to the media? Â Same thing – STFU. Â Who cares?
But here’s the hypocrisy of the situation: All of the Republicans who are calling on Weiner to resign haven’t said SHIT about Republican David Vitter. Â Senator Vitter (R-LA), who actually broke the law by using a callgirl service. Â He did far worse than Weiner ever did, and yet Republicans start whistling like nothing’s going on when you bring that up.
