The story here has been so big, that I nearly missed the latest bit of fun and frolic from back over on the other side of the pond....
Back in the U.S., a well known member of the U.S. Congress, found himself on a scandal of his own, where a whole series of jokes have been writing themselves!
(via the GuardianUK...)
A number of friends of mine on the political right have had a great deal of fun with this "scandal" over the past few days. Right on cue the Republican Party was in front of any camera and microphone with calls for "Congressman Pervert" to resign. After all what Congressman Weiner did was shameful, and... icky...., AND he had the audacity to LIE about it! That is certainly a "beyond the pale" offense... right?
Mind you , the REPUBLICANS would never tolerate that kind of thing in their caucus... right?
You have to love this age of digital media we are living in... Cue Rachel Maddow with today's reality check....
Now as much as I find what Anthony Weiner did, to be ... Well, I was about to say unbecoming of a member of Congress, but apparently this sort of thing is par for the course there... That being said, as much fun as it would also be to rehash famous GOP "Sexting" scandals, (one of the more famous ones of which involved underage congressional Pages.) It hardly seems worth the effort.
It's gotten to the point where blogging about Republican hypocrisy doesn't even require any real work. It is a narrative that writes itself.
