Did you see the pictures of his wife or read about her? She's gorgeous, well educated, well placed and well employed. She's twelve years younger than him and they've been married less than a year. It's pretty clear you couldn't find a better woman to shit all over.

Don't know whether to laugh or cry. I am pretty familiar with his wife's background and appearance, and I agree.

The reason Lee was out is because Boehner showed him the door. It even cost him the seat. I think he's right in that it's best to cut the tumor out not just for that case but the next one coming. Then the discussion is done.

Pelosi isn't focused on that. Too often in politics the tribalism is too great. The worst of us is better than the best of you.

I think it was really just a joke, but whatever. As for a third party, there is just nothing viable right now. People have tried, but breaking through the two party box has proven next to impossible.

I think that is slowly (but surely) changing. More and more Libertarian candidates are starting to be elected to local positions around the country. I think it's only a matter of time before we see them having legitimate shots at more prominent positions.

But there is something to be said about trying to use a corrupt system against itself, like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are doing right now with the Republican Party.

Dan Wolfe: Media would rather misreport, protect and incite death threats.

Quote:
Verum Serum: So how do you feel today now that you are in the clear and Weiner has admitted he sent that tweet you retweeted?

Dan Wolfe: I just feel like my eyes are opened as to what people in the media will do to get a story and/or protect their hero (Weiner) and it’s not pretty.

VS: The left really put you through the wringer for most of the week.

DW: To protect their hero not just Kos but Joan at Salon, Gawker, Village Voice, Mediaite, CNN, Maddow, all said I had something to do with this. They smeared me and put my family in danger. People started an actual manhunt for me. They found out I live in [redacted] and started a manhunt. This is life or death for me with losing my kids. I’m just a father and all I did was RT; for this I get treated like a criminal.

We talked a bit more and I asked him to settle a couple of basic identity questions many people have wondered about:

VS: BTW, is Dan Wolfe your real name or a pseudonym? Lots of speculation about that?

DW: Dan Wolfe is my real name

VS: One more personal question which you don’t have to answer if you don’t want. How old are you? Give me a range at least.

DW: I am 45-50 (closer to 50) lol

We talked a bit more and Dan had a few other loose ends he recommended I run down. As we were winding up I asked him once more about his experience being the focus of the left’s ire and suspicion:

VS: Do you have anything else you’d like to say to all the folks who accused you of hacking Weiner’s account?

DW: I don’t want to gloat. But if you use that quote about all the media that attacked me — they are wrong and should apologize, but they won’t. They protect their liberal heroes instead of being ethical journalists. It’s easy to make me out to be the devil.

VS: Would you like an apology from them?

DW: It would be nice if they apologized to me and told their users how wrong they were to incite death threats and a manhunt on an innocent man like me. It scared me and it made me scared as a father for my kids. So yes, an apology would be nice, but they aren’t nice people.

Then again, I never thought I’d live to see the day Anthony Weiner apologized to Andrew Breitbart so maybe anything is possible.

They also came after Breitbart hard. I heard some of his hijacked press conference. I was entertained, because he crushed some of the questions in hysterical fashion. There were reporters asking him why he even went with the story...implying it wasn't news. He responded by telling them he didn't even go with the story until he had talked with one of the women (I don't remember which one...Broussard, maybe?) and until Weiner claimed his account had been hacked. My understanding is that he knew before the Twitter pic was posted.

By the way, Fox News' Kirsten Powers (she's a Dem) and former girfriend has gone ballistic.

Breitbart was right this time. That means he's only fabricated 3 out of 4 scandals.

For a more complete overview on political scandals in the US, a LIST HERE.

Far and away the two most scandal prone administrations, as regards general corruption, were those of George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

And re. sex scandals specifically, THIS LIST of some 60 or so major sex scandals shows that Republicans have out-done Democrats approximately 150%.

Carry on with Weinergate.

Those are the scandals the propaganda wing of the federal government (mainstream media) actually reported, mind you.

That list is incomplete. Only federal scandals? It actually includes Clarence Thomas?

It's never really the sex but the lying about it. The guy filled his office with every major news organization and straight up lied to their collective faces. Now it looks like underaged girls were involved. We'll have to see.

Do we get to start generating more headlines yet? I'm starting to worry this guy might leave office soon and it would ruin all the fun.

Do you we really want "Weiner pulls out of office," or "Weiner resigns prematurely" to be the last jokes told about this?

Weiner seeks rehab for condition is only worth a chuckle right now. He's got to stick around.

I never called for Lee's resignation. He resigned because it turned out he was also chasing some transgendered women and apparently that's too embarrassing for a Republican to handle. Again, if that's what floats your boat, go for it.

But apparently you don't give a shit about lying to the American public on the senate floor when it comes to grossly mischaracterizing what Planned Parenthood does. That's not worthy resignation. But lying to the American public about one's sex life...well, that's the worst thing anyone can do.

SDW, those two things aren't the same. What Jon Kyl did was a million times worse.

90% vs 3%. You think that was accidental? The apology did not say "oops, I got the stat wrong, my bad." It said "that was not intended to be a factual statement." That's also known as a fucking lie.

An interesting thing about moral relativism is that oftentimes those who hold such a position don't realize they do. Nor do they realize how inconsistent their position really is.

Furthermore, they get extremely upset and lash out when confronted with the absurdity of their position.

I don't care what you're calling for. The point is that Republicans almost always resign quickly. Democrats are ill. They go to rehab. They get get excuses made for them. Another good example is Charlie Rangel. This guy has got to be one of the most corrupt members, and does he go anywhere? Nope...he's right there, "serving" the people of New York. Speaking of which, 56% of New Yorkers wants Weiner to remain in office. The problem isn't just among politicians and the media. Those two groups have succeeded in having the double standard and hyper-partisanship penetrate the culture itself.

You're right, it's not worthy of resignation. He spoke inaccurately. He was wrong. Politicians do this all the time---and there is no proof it was intentional. But more to the point...you're comparing this to Weiner? This man conducted multiple one-on-one interviews where he admittedly lied in premeditated fashion. He was stupid enough to use SOCIAL FUCKING MEDIA to do it. He's compromised ethically and politically. And we're supposed to believe his judgement is sound enough to remain a Congressman?

Right.

So because a Republican, who in my view had no reason to resign, did in fact step down, now Weiner has to? That makes no sense. It was Lee's choice to step down. He could have continued and I would have posted no objections. Now it's Weiner's choice. I'm consistent in my view here. There's no double standard. Neither should have to resign over their sex lives.

As far as Jon Kyl is concerned, what he did was utterly egregious. He didn't say it was just speaking inaccurately. Read the press release from his office. The press release stated that Kyl's words were "not intended to be factual." Please, SDW, what are you planning to do when you are not intending to be factual? What is it that you do when DON'T have the INTENT to be TRUTHFUL? Hmm?

Kyl actually went to the floor of the Senate and intentionally lied in order to advance a political agenda.

Are you seriously telling me that lying about one's personal sex life is WORSE than lying about something directly related to one's duties on the job? You're fucking nuts if you are.

Yea! I think it's far worse to call in the media for the only reason to lie to them and the people of america. If he had hunkered down and within 36 hours came and said "yea I effed up and made that shit up and tweeted to some girls some stuff I shouldn't have because I'm a horny lonely guy" it would have been different.

keep circling the wagons. It doesn't really matter so long as your side doesn't lose and their side doesn't win.

Lee stepped down because he was compromised and embarrassed. Like it or not, people make judgements about one's character based on one's "private" actions. Unless you're a Democrat, of course. Then the moral bar is set so low that it doesn't matter. Then you get to go to rehab.

Oh my God! He gave the wrong percentage for Planned Parenthood's abortion services! He exaggerated to make a political point! He then ADMITTED the number wasn't correct! Liar! Liar!

You're comparing what Kyl did to Weiner taking pictures of his wang and sending them to 21 year old women and perhaps, 17 year old girls, lying to everyone in the world for a week in public statements and one-on-one interviews, then admitting he was full of it. You've got to be kidding me. Really, you should read your posts out loud and listen to yourself.
