I have three main reactions to Anthony Weiner’s resignation.
1. Who gives a rat’s hindquarters?!? Is this of any importance whatsoever, compared to the continuing – and devastating – Bush/Republican Great Recession, the potential for the United States to default on its debt in a few weeks, the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, etc., etc? Why does anyone care about a Congressman from Queens who tweeted his “weiner” and lied about tweeting his “weiner?” Whatever. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
2. The corporate media continues to sink lower and lower into the brain-dead, idiocracy-style “infotainment” trash heap of history. Just when you think they can’t get any more pathetic…they do!
3. Now that Weiner has resigned, for the
horrible crimes terrible judgment and lying he’s engaged in, I presume we will now move to demand the resignations of: a) every member of Congress who’s engaged in extramarital sex – for real, not just on Twitter; b) every member of Congress who’s lied about anything — sex, or more important matters of policy (e.g., denying climate science); c) every member of Congress who’s broken the law in any way; d) every member of Congress who’s done something corrupt or unethical; e) every member of Congress who is bought-and-paid-for by Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Agribusiness, etc. Oh wait, we’re not gonna do that? No, we’re not, because if we did, the halls of Congress would be pretty much empty. But heck, who cares, let’s all enjoy (“relish?”) our Weiner roast, obviously he didn’t cut the mustard (get it?), stick a fork in him…ok, enough bad puns for the day.
