What were they thinking??

I was hoping that the story would just fade away, but it hasn't. What was Rep. Anthony Weiner thinking when he sent a picture of his crotch to everyone on his Twitter list? He lied about the entire thing from the beginning. He didn't know if the picture was him, his account had been hacked, it was a bunch of right-wing extremists, and on and on. he finally owned up to it a few days ago. Now, like in the Tiger Woods story, there are women coming out of the woodwork, who claim to have had some kind of relationship with him.

What kind of moron engages in this type of conduct and expects to remain in Congress? Okay, let me rephrase that. What kind of moron other than Barney Frank or a Kennedy expects to be able to remain in Congress after the crotch shot heard 'round the world? What kind of moron would vote for this guy? Plenty. A poll on Friday showed that 56% of voters would vote for him again. Noooooo!!!!

I'm pretty sure that I don't understand the Twitter thing. After this, I'm sure that I don't want to use Twitter. The chance that some guy's crotch picture will show up on my phone is a risk that I'm not willing to take.

What's the best thing about the whole Weiner incident or as one paper called it, the battle of the bulge? Thank God, he's a Democrat!

Republicans had their own problems this week as Newt Gingrich's campaign staff bailed out on him. This happened as Newt returned from a two week cruise in the Greek Islands. His staff apparently felt that despite his massive intellect, Mr. Gingrich was unable to grasp the meaning of "commitment". Who can be puzzled by that? He's been married three times!

I had hoped that Newt would make a good run in 2012. It's not going to happen. There are talkers and doers in life. Mr. Gingrich makes his living as a talker.

It wasn't just politicians this week, there was room left for others to be stupid.

In Brandon, Florida a man was charged with putting a camera in a unisex bathroom at a Starbucks. When employees found the camera and called the Sheriff's Department, deputies found that the pervert had filmed himself and his license plate. There's an easy case to solve.

In Greensboro, a former Guilford College professor was charging with taking pictures under some girl's skirt with a camera built into a pen. When police searched his home they found some child porn on his computer. This guy was a professor at a college started by and owned by Quakers. Here's a great picture of a guy who you don't want teaching your children! Mercifully, I had no pictures of Mr. Weiner.
