A man lies about sex! Shocking!

I enjoyed this article, and thought I would share:


Like she says "I'm more concerned with what our leaders do in office than with their sex lives"

But, I can't help wonder, how ANYONE could be that stupid?
Here's a little bit from the paper:

In reality, men and women lie about this subject all the time. They brag about "conquests" they never made, or have affairs that they deny. They say they're working late when they're really having a rendezvous. Gay people marry someone of the opposite sex to avoid facing the truth about themselves. People secretly look at computer porn or have explicit extra-marital exchanges online. Women fake orgasms. Men hire hookers.

Personally, I'd like to keep on not knowing (short of violence, predation or extreme loathesomeness ala John Edwards) because I don't expect politicians to be paragons of virtue. I do, however, expect them to refrain from rubbing my nose in their private pecadilloes.

The president of the United States looked America in the eye and lied about Monica
When Mr. Weiner made his round of apologies, one of the calls went to the ex-president. This prompted Jon Stewart's best line in recent months: "He apologized to Bill Clinton? For what? Copyright infringement?"

Bad husbands can be good leaders, and good husbands can be a disaster. It's time to grow up and accept that reality. I wish more of our pols had more personal integrity, but as long as I don't have to live with them, I'll worry more about the policies they advance and the votes they cast

ah, the lengths that the left will go, to justify the misdeeds of their representatives.
I'll agree with her, IF she uses that same attitude when a conservative gets busted for the same thing.

Some people are careful their whole lives, never wanting to get caught doing anything questionable, hoping to become a politician. Others wait to become a politician, then they decide to start cutting up

Reminds me of a story I know. Once there was a man who lost a lot in life and had very little left to lose. With one foot in the grave anyway, he decided to let it all hang out and do whatever he felt like. His short life had been filled with lots of violence and pain anyway and most of his real friends had died. He expected to join them soon. So he gave free reign to his desires, both base and elevated. Within a few years, the man's life had changed completely. Because he had no fear anymore and had surrendered inwardly to death, he was able to take very great risks and also to see clearly things as they really were, rather than things as he wanted them to be. These qualities, plus a good strong helping of luck, soon made the man a success where once he had been a failure. Suddenly well-to-do and respectable, he became a pillar of his small community and the direct supporter of a large family. The man thought, not for the first time, that fate had a truly perverse sense of humor -- it had rewarded him fully only after he stopped caring about the reward or anything else. All that was left in his soul was a little fine ash. But some part of him was happy he could support his family, and he watched them grow, knowing that the fact they would be safer and more human than him was somehow ample reward for everything. But the man had still one terrible little itch he couldn't help but scratch. Something involving women who were not his wife. It was only by removing all his inhinbitions and stepping beyond himself that he had finally been able to succeede and bring happiness and prosperity to his family. It would be impossible for him to completely remove that part of himself without losing these very qualities. Is this man really so evil?

I couldn't agree more with the article.....I could care less what a politician does in their personal life, or if they lie about it. I only care about the lies they tell us about the country...not who they slept with, or , in the case of Mr. Weiner, who they sent pictures of their .........well their weiner....too.

See what those who would like us all to imagine that such things as this matter because our leaders should set moral examples don't understand is that everyone is an individual. Some of the most trustworthy people I've known have had horrible personal relationships, with one or both partners cheating on the other.No one is perfect, and each person has their own personal demons that they deal with. In fact one example I like to remind such 'moralists' of is King David from the Bible. He had a life filled with sexual misdeeds that would have made BIll Clinton envious! Yet the Bible itself says he was a 'the most beloved of God' and a truly Wise King......

Yes, like you, I agree with the article. But like I said before, in Mr. Weiner’s case, it really makes me question his intelligence. I mean, come on, with all we have seen, politicians and celebrities private lives being paraded across the headlines. What on earth would possess him to do something so hella stupid. Did he think he wouldn't get caught? Did he feel he did his job so well that, if caught, it wouldn't matter to enough people to effect his career?

I think it all boils down to ... Men are stupid, and they think with their wieners

Have as many women politicans done such STUPID things? I don't know...
