You’ve probably noticed that writing on the Insanity Report has dropped off a bit.¬† It’s not that I’ve gotten done blogging.¬† I’m actually spending more time at my other site MovieTrailerReviews.Net (cheap plug).¬† But every now and then I’ll still pop in and drop an article here cause some things just need that “Kriss perspective”.¬† And the Podcast will still be going so even if I don’t write an article about it, I’ll still talk about it on the show.¬† But anyway….
So…Anthony Weiner….the jokes make themselves.
First off, when this began, even though I really didn’t care about it, I knew Weiner was lying for several reasons:
1.¬† It so easy to send a tweet meant for DM to your entire timeline.¬† Forget to put a ‘D’ there and it’s a wrap.
2. He claimed he was “hacked”.¬† Everyone always claims they were hacked and I don’t ever really believe it. Especially when it’s something like this.
3.¬† He couldn’t say for sure if the picture was his or not.¬† That meant either he didn’t want to say it was his or he has so many pictures of his crotch on his computer that he wasn’t really sure if it was him. Either way, it was all bad.
So when it came out that he was in fact sending sexual (and sometimes downright creepy) photos of himself to young women not his wife, I was neither shocked our outraged.¬† ¬†¬†Listen, people cheating on their significant other is common.¬† It typically has no real connection to their job performance.¬† Unless we’re talking a John Edwards or John Ensign and there is a criminal aspect to it, it doesn’t matter.¬† Professional Athletes, Entertainers, Politicians, Fortune 500 CEOs, John the bus driver who drives your kids to school every morning and waves at you goodbye all cheat on their wives (or at least some of them do) and you never know because they do their job and that’s all that really matters.¬† So yeah, Weiner is in fact a giant DICK for sexting other chicks not his wife, but it doesn’t make him a bad politician.
Which leads me to…
Liberals always wonder why they seem to be fighting an uphill battle for progress.¬† The answer is simple.¬† it’s not right wing conspiracies or even that most people are stupid.¬† It’s cause being a liberal sucks.¬† Other liberals will turn on you at the slightest hint of you not being 100% what they want.¬† There’s almost no loyalty at all.¬† Is Weiner a giant douche dongle?¬† Yes.¬† Absolutely.¬† But it really has no bearing on his job performance.¬† Liberals should love this guy.¬† Matter of fact…I know liberals love this guy. They love him so much they even forgot about his comments defending Israel’s actions against the Gaza flotilla.¬† But yet now they’re writing about how their “done with him” and “he needs to resign”.¬† Come on folks.¬† Bill Clinton got a blow job as President in the oval office and not only did it not really affect his job performance but, dare I say it, I think it actually helped him out.¬† Whether you agreed with his politics or not, you gotta admit he always looked calm and relaxed like he just got finished getting his balls licked.¬† I actually think that’s why he came off sometimes like a cranky old white guy during the 2008 campaign.¬† He wasn’t getting blown enough.
But back to Weiner…
Weiner came out and apologized and cried and all I could think was “Man, Democrats really suck at this.”¬† Dude, why are you crying?¬† Embarrassing?¬† Absolutely.¬† But let’s be real here, he didn’t even send a full nude dick picture.¬† He sent his crotch in briefs. ¬† On the ‘DEFCON Scale of Cheating’, Weiner was a 5….the lowest you can fucking be.¬† He was sexting and flirting with women online.¬† That’s hardly enough to make him resign.¬† Hell, former Governor Mark Sanford left the country during Father’s Day Weekend to go sleep with his mistress and didn’t resign and Weiner isn’t even close to that level.¬† Did Weiner lie? ¬†Yes (and badly).¬† But since when did we start making politicians resign for lying?¬† Hell, I think agreeing to lie is part of the oath they take when they’re sworn in.¬† If we’re going to start setting that precedence, then there’s a whole slew of politicians that need to resign before Weiner.
Now’s the time to double down on Weiner.¬† Instead of whining about how Weiner has been a “distraction”, Democrats and Liberals should be rallying around him and pointing out the good he’s done.¬† Yeah he’s a creep but he’s a liberal creep that’s fought for a lot of things liberals want politically.¬† He did something that a lot of people, as much as they might deny it, have done.¬† It’s not worth abandoning him over for something that’s really really stupid.¬† Yeah, he’s an idiot and nearly fucked up his private life…but come on folks…he’s human.¬† Barring some revelation that he wasted tax payer money or did something criminal, it’s really not that serious.
