  •  Yes, and I think Lee resigning was absurd (5+ / 0-)

    I would never in a million years would suggest anyone resigning for what Lee did. There must have been more he didn't want investigated. Vitter is many times worse than Weiner and we need to hound him out of office. Otherwise, we have simply proved we are always in the end too weak to fight off the Republicans.

      Transvestites and there was much more that didn't come out.  That's why he resigned.  

      Wiener actually reminds me more of another liberal,  the guy in NY who had the military background and was actively supported by the net roots who harassed male staff members.  I just can't remember his name even though I contributed to him.   He resigned too.  Eric something?

      I also don't really mind that the Dems try to have a higher standard.  If guys want to mess around, pick another profession.  People who are elected representatives should be doing their jobs, not tweeting unsolicited dirty pictures to women who contact them because they like their politics.  I think it is all about their arrogance and what they think they can get away with.  They lie to their  constituents all the time, take corporate money, allow themselves to be bribed, and get to feeling invulnerable,  plus some have rather predatory inclinations.

      The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.
