Wieners and the Truth

I really hate it when Republicans do something better than Democrats -- even when it comes to embarrassing sex scandals.

Think of the last three big Democrat sex scandals: Clinton, Edwards, and now, the fortunately named, Weiner. All three engaged in varying degrees of sleazy behavior, all three lied about it, and all three really wouldn't have been in that much trouble if they told the truth in the first place. However, because they didn't (for whatever reasons: wives, cowardice, wanting to see his package on TV more) one faced impeachment, one is facing criminal charges, and one will likely face an ethics sanction. Not because of what they did with their dicks, but because they lied about it.

Now think about the latest Republican scandal. You know the name -- it's as big as his bicep. Arnold fathered a child with a household staff member, hid the child for more than a decade, and then just released a little four line message admitting to all of it and saying he was sorry.

All four of these men faced the wrath of the press, and their wives, and the public. All four of these men took (or will take) career hits because of their indiscretions. However, three of them tried to publicly deny their guilt, claimed to be victims, and then had to make very public admissions of mea culpas in front of a slobbering press corps. One of them just got to write a note.

Oh, and Arnold was smart enough to have his sex scandal surface after he was out of office! Score -- no criminal charges or ethics investigations. Think of how much money he saved the people of California.

If only the people of New York were so lucky.

Well, what do you expect from Democrats though? After all, we do love to spend.

Ugh.

Word. I'm tired of having his junk waved in my face. Literally. Of course men in power do dumb things with their dicks. Just like ducks fart in water. It's a fact. But ducks don't blame the fish, do they?

That made way more sense before I started typing it...

Funny, I just wrote about the Oscar Meyer Weiner. :)

It reminds me of the Shaggy song "It Wasn't Me".

I never thought of it that way but you're so on point! I'm a big fan of Weiner (lol. weiner) and I have to say of all the sx scandals in all the world, I find myself thoroughly disappointed with him. I thought he was one of the good guys. :-(

Think he was just trying to live up to his name? Prove that not only is he a wiener, but he has one, too?

Why would he not have a separate secret Twitter account for Wiener picture postings?

I'm totally disgusted with him. He's texted this crap to a girl who is the same age as my niece. What a pig. And a creep.
