Is he really so different from the average man? 60% of men physically cheat, he didn't even go that far (that we know).

I don't see the Politicaloutsider Conservative lynch mob out for David Vitter, either. Why are you not calling for his resignation? Do you think tweeting your penis is worse than soliciting prostitution?

I think what Weiner did was honestly worse. I really do. Visiting a prostitute is looked at as morally wrong by many people. But I also think people understand that sex is our most primary drive, and that some have trouble containing it. He cheated on his wife. What Weiner did is seen as more odd and even perverse. He used social media to send pictures of his wang to multiple women. He had cybersex with multiple women. And then he conducted a campaign of premeditated lying. He lied to literally everyone: One-on-one interviews, public statements, former girlfriends, friends, supporters, other members of Congress...everyone. He did this for a week until the fact were such that he HAD to admit it.

Any public official who uses social friggin' media to send pictures of his wang, pictures in a towel, sex chat, etc...shows such incredibly poor judgment that he ought to literally have his head examined. And dude...he's been married a year to an attractive younger woman, yet at one point he's chatting with a 17 year old? What is wrong with this guy? I think what he did was far worse than Clinton as well, though I do believe Clinton was a womanizer with deep character flaws as well. But he basically gave evasive answers under oath, and made a single statement in public ("I did not have sex that woman, Monica Lewinsky"). And really...everyone knew Clinton was getting blowies long before he took office.

Oh, and he was married to Hillary..so hey, what would you do?

I'm not a conservative. I'm a libertarian.

Why, thank you for asking, tonton! That is quite refreshing!

Weiner did nothing illegal (that we know of...). No victim, no crime. He was not obligated by law to resign.

That said, I believe he is not trustworthy and wouldn't want him representing me - especially with the unconstitutional power government has over us today. But that's ultimately up to his constituents, not me.

Fair enough. Would you want a married man who solicits prostitutes representing you?

No, I personally would not.

Not only does it demonstrate a propensity for self gratification and objectification of women, it clearly shows that he doesn't honor his personal commitments.

I know nobody is perfect, and I certainly don't expect perfection from those I consider for public office.

But should we not hold our elected officials to a high standard?

How can a man of such questionable character be trusted to honor his commitments to the Constitution and his constituents?

Wiener, Vitter, Clinton.

Only one of those people broke the law.

Clearly, that's not a problem for you.

And how about this guy?


Also, indexed sums this nonsense up quite nicely: http://thisisindexed.com/2011/06/cho...oral-majority/
