I am done.  This won't be a real diary and I don't have time to monitor it, but Anthony Wiener was the straw that broke this feminist's back.  I am done with "Liberal" Democrats who can't keep their dickos in their pantsos, whether this be literal or metaphorical.  The rant is below the squiggle.

Actually, there are so many of these scandals, one has a hard time keeping them all straight.  

I 'forgave' Clinton as I thought he was set up in a complicated way.  The idea that he thought he could get away with it as if he was in office during the Kennedy era was indicative of the massive arrogance of the powerful.  

John Edwards?  Too icky for words, and I liked his positions A LOT.  I like Elizabeth even better, but to cheat on her while she was fighting cancer and then lie about it so that he could stay in the race: disgusting.

That any Congressman has the time to twitter frivolities of any sort, let alone this sort, tells me he isn't doing his job.  There is always more work; always more to know about a thousand and one issues.  But not only, that this man who I have supported although I haven't lived in New York for 40 years was one of the last politicians who I could actually stand to listen to.  Not any more!  

And he wants to keep twittering/tweeting/tooting!!!!  He shouldn't have time for that absurdity.  Get your fingers off that keypad and get your eyes on some reading material that will teach you something you need to know to make the world better, to make yourself a better person.

I am done with all of them.  A male politician who can't keep himself on the most conservative straight and narrow doesn't belong anywhere near elected office.  

We are trying to keep from going under in this country and these penises have time to point themselves towards the innertubes, the twittertubes, the facebooks, the craigslists.

I am officially over them.  All of them.  

The idea that he even wanted to spend his time like this is the problem.

And trying to lie his way through it?  He isn't paying attention.  I doubt he has the real intelligence to figure out the important things in life.  Married only a year?  His wife should cut her losses.  I am over the wives tolerating this too.

He was going to run for NYC mayor!!  Please, that represents a field of dreams for male sexual opportunity.  It represent temptation every single day next to the most beautiful women in the world.

He shouldn't resign because then the seat will go R, but he should withdraw, get major therapy and spend his time educating himself instead of using social media.  He should let someone else run in 2012.

He needs a crash course in feminist theory.  He needs a crash course in understanding sexuality.

The only way he could recover in my eyes is if he made it his full time occupation to understand gender issues, sexuality and exploitation.  Even then, I would have a problem with him being in office.

He elevated Brietbart.  Disgusting.

Get these guys out of the seats of power.  Period.

I am over them even though I could really care less about anyone's private life.  Doing this in today's world is a ticket to defeat for our party, our values and a better world.

It is time to put everyone else first.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    •  it bothers me because it (0+ / 0-)

      damages 'our' side and because, by definition, he is lying.

      and he shouldn't have time for tweeting frivolities.  the planet is on fire.

      AND he has a problem if he needs to do this.

      actually, it bothers me more than real sex with a real woman who consents.  at least that has the advantage of possibly being genuine.

      i am over 'forgiving' these guys.

      the planet is on fire and they want to spread around their wee wees.

      part of the deal of going into politics is that you give up some freedoms for the responsibility and power.

      and yes, it is creepy.  sex isn't creepy, but this activity IS.

    diaries that I have rec'ed.  Maybe women look at thinks differently.  I saw a poll a few months ago that said, guess what guys...women do not like seeing pictures of your penises.  I am disgusted with Edwards, Weiner and I didn't appreciate Clinton or any of them giving ammunition against us.  You guys need to keep your penises to yourselves or some woman that likes them.  I'm also tired of wimpy women that stand by their men.

    about it?  I am as open minded and nonjudgmental about sexual behavior as they come, but can they just be discreet?  And don't lie when you are caught, for christ's sake.

      the climate doesn't allow for it in a lot of ways.

      type of imature obsession with people's own penis is a bit over the top for me.  Why do people think that others really crave and care about what their penis looks like flacid, or erect?  Pretty sad, and a life wrecker when they get caught in the act (and they almost always do).

      Keep it in the pants and off the net, "children".
