There's been a lot of discussion and op eds and stuff in the news in the past couple of weeks, ever since Anthony Weiner was revealed to have continued to "sext" women even after he'd stopped down from his congressman position in disgrace.
Now, he is trying to become mayor of New York and even though he must have known he was going to try to re-enter politics, he had been sexting yet more women.
And now this is known and he's refusing to step down.
Now, I haven't read any of the guy's interviews, and I haven't read any of the articles about him - I've just read the headlines and some of the op ed pieces.
But come ON.
Even if a person's sex life is their own business, and has nothing to do with politics, surely politicians must be ethical in that they mustn't LIE. They mustn't be STUPID.
How can anyone in this day and age who "sexts" and who is a public figure, think that he can get away with not being found out?????
Anthony Weiner is a stupid man, and we've already got too many stupid people in politics.
What puzzles me is why anyone continues to support this man. How can they not look at him and picture him taking a picture of his "junk" and then sending it - unsolicited, mark you - to women.
According to a poll Rush read a few days ago, women age 18-20 still support Weiner. Now that is a very sad statistic. Even if you're used to being "sexted" yourself - and I venture to say women "sext" men more often than the other way around - don't they see how demeaning that is?
Sadly, they don't.
