Please Keep Your Weiner to Yourself.

This is how you know your elected officials
are incapable of running a country:
We live in an Information Age, where communications are instantaneous, and the ability to transmit and diffuse information at, almost literally at light speed, is a fact of life. We live in an age of a 24-hour news cycle, with thousands of outlets constantly searching for any bit of anything that is even of the slightest interest, hungry for even more channels of input, and ways to devour more airtime at a profit. We live in an age where everyone and his dog has a video camera, recording device, cell phone, computer, and access to thousands, if not millions, of databases where they can record, store, examine and retrieve almost every fact of your life, every utterance, every (you think) secret, every correspondence from the most inconsequential to the greatest of All-Time-Biggest-Bonehead moves.

You would think that someone who's claim to rule over us peasants was based upon the presumptions of superior intelligence and integrity would be extremely circumspect about what he/she does on the Internet. But I guess not.  Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is an insufferable twit and the most-aptly named man in Washington.  

Enough said!

  1. It looks to me that Weiner has hired the Sesame Street School of Public Relations to handle his SNAFU. With advance apologies to the little green guy, Kermit the Frog would not have been my choice to "handle Weiner's package" of problems. OK, the pun was intended and I am a shameless provocateur. That's my game.
