Listening to Weiner on Real Time just makes me angry that he couldn't behave online. He's a strong-willed, well-spoken progressive. We need all of those we can get. But, dick pics and whatnot. You fool.
 
2014-06-16 12:09:22 PM
Actually yeah, it does sound like he's Farking with people.
 
2014-06-16 01:49:55 PM
I'll give him a pass on this one. I'm always hitting the wrong damn thing when trying to do shiat on my phone or iPad.

Well, yeah. Barring a phoenix-like resurrection, his political career is over, so why not act as an agent provocateur on Twitter? The more public utterances by the teabaggers, the better.

If he displayed even a modicum of self-control, you mean.

I don't care what kind of sexy times people get up to in private or in public, but he had zero ability to control his desires even when his career and marriage were being ruined by them. His problem isn't that he offended the morality of an uptight nation, it was that he had no willpower. That's REALLY not something you want in a leader.

Well then we dodged a bullet. I don't actually care about the private lives of politicians particularly. I assume that most of the ones that haven't been embroiled in scandal are just the ones that are better at not getting caught than the morally superior ones.

I don't even mind if they get caught, since a proven talent for covering things up from the public isn't terribly high on my wish-list for political leaders.

But if they get caught and then go and get caught again doing the same damn thing in the middle of their attempt at a comeback, that just demonstrates an inability to learn from mistakes and modify behavior when it's obviously necessary for what you're trying to accomplish.

Plus, if your name is Wiener and you're going to get caught up in a scandal, don't make that scandal revolve around pics of your dick. That just shows terrible judgment and lack of self-awareness.

The first time was a mistake, and while it was embarrassing it was minor by comparison to most sex scandals.  I feel he did the right thing by withdrawing from the spotlight (though he should have finished his term and simply not run for reelection), taking some time away, and then returning fresh.

The  second time it happened, on the other hand, was just stupid.  That was the point that I, previously a big fan of his, got sick of his shiat and decided I wanted him to just go away.  It evidenced a clear lack of self-control and even the bare minimum of basic decorum expected of a straight-talking New York politician.  Seriously, I'll tolerate a  lot of shiat from someone like that, but the back-to-back sexting scandals was just too much.

Out of curiosity, do you feel the same way about Bill Clinton?

He was a self-righteous panderer.  Weiner, at best, was a mouthpiece.  He didn't actually generate any accomplishments.  For actually getting good things done, he couldn't hold Henry Waxman's jock.  (But he could fill it and film it.)

Pretty much, yes.

The American public are a bunch of scandal mongers who feel best when they are morally superior to someone (anyone). If the guy stole money or used his legislative connections to attack his political opponents -then you would see a percentage of supporters standing up for him. Because it involves the dirty word SEX, then there is no defense as Americans in general just stand back and gawk at his misdeeds.  The "outrage" is little more than slut shaming and an excuse for "dirty" humor.

OhMyGosh his weiner amIright? Followed by retarded laughter.

THIS. Take note, would-be puritans and other slut-shamers. The more you go on about sexual behavior only more clearly illustrates for the rest of us how little you truly understand it.

I was meaning to direct that question to  Gunther, not to you. I agree with what you're saying. I just find it incongruous for people to go after Wiener for his "lack of self control" while defending Clinton and saying it didn't affect his ability to perform the job, especially when what Clinton did was demonstrably "worse" than what Wiener did, when viewed through that lens. That logic doesn't add up.

Thanks, Bane! Good to know someone cares.

Promise me you'll do the ladies in your live the favor of always having some gray boxer briefs. They present the package perfectly. Whites don't do that, and black obscures the, ah *relief*. Gray's the way to go.

In other news, politicians lie.  But the only time people really care is when it comes lying about penises, orifices or any combination of the two.

Why do we care, seriously? Is the guy sexually active? Is that our business? Why are we making it our business? Seriously, let it go!

Yep, exactly.

Sirsky: I was meaning to direct that question to  Gunther, not to you.


Then let me answer you: Clinton probably porked his way through a few sororities, but before his presidency it was fairly common for presidents to have mistresses and the press pretended not to notice. Making it a huge issue and bringing an impeachment hearing against him for it was an early sign that the GOP was turning into a party of douches. Clinton, to his credit, either stopped porking interns or kept that shiat far enough on the DL that nobody's been able to catch him at it in 20 years, so he's either demonstrating self control or extreme cunning, either way admirable traits in a leader.

Wiener was a politician in the modern era, who had to have known a sex scandal would damage his career and he tweeted pictures of his dick. OK, idiotic, but he surely deserved a second chance. Then during his comeback he farking did it again.

It's that second one that's the real kicker; I couldn't care less about politicians being monogamous, but he had to have known the consequences of it and he couldn't stop himself.  It demonstrates ZERO ability to control his desires.
