OKAY.FINE. I didn’t want to write about it. I am more annoyed than anything about the whole situation. I was over it elebenty years ago.
I think now that Wiener has resigned from Congress (good riddance), he can start up a hot dog stand and name it Wiener’s Wieners. I would totally not eat there!
The only people who know what is going on in a relationship is the 2 people in it. And if they decide they want to have 4 wives, 7 husbands, 19 kids, 3 dogs, 9 cows, and 39 horses I DON’T CARE.
As long as everything is consensual and no one is being hurt, I DON’T CARE.
I believe we are far too judgmental in our society. I will marry who I want (thank you very much) and we will create the family we want and do what we want in our bedroom. That is between me and my partner and I thank you to keep your nose out of it.
In return, I shall keep my freckly nose out of your business.
So on a scale of 1 to 100 the amount I care about Arnold and Wiener is -50.
My problem is, as far as I can tell, these people are either:
So STUPID they think every other public figure will be caught, but the won’t
So DELUSIONAL they can get away with it, they would have to believe they are superior to us mere mortals
Either way, these are not the people I want representing me in Congress. Is this the best our country has to offer? We are experiencing debilitating unemployment across the country. Maybe one of those poor souls would do better to occupy that seat (not me).
Politically, I agree with Wiener, but COME ON. There has to be a better person to sit in that seat.
Anyone else notice 99.9% of the people caught up in these scandals are men? Maybe we would do well to elect more women. Just a thought.
I don’t expect public figures to be without mistakes. However, it makes me CRAZY that after making a mistake they insult my intelligence by lying about it. When did it ever work that the lie wasn’t exposed???
My mom always said, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out and you’ll get in a lot more trouble if you lie about it…I thought everyone’s mother’s taught them this.
The people in political life must forget the important part where it is written–OF the people, FOR the people. They are no better or worse than anyone else. They put their pants on one leg at a time just like you and I. I’m pretty sure Wiener’s taken a picture of that…as he’s chronicled everything else.
As far as what happens in their marriage, that’s none of our business. The only thing I ask of our politicians is, please, in the future, I would so appreciate it if you are claiming you aren’t a dog, keep your pants zipped. And if you are a dog, just tell us so we won’t be surprised. I promise I don’t care either way, I’ll vote for who is HONEST and best aligns with my political opinions.
In fact, I will say today, in writing, that if a politician stands up and says are in an open marriage and he likes to take pictures and mess around on-line, they have my vote. A vote for honesty, that’s all I ask. I don’t believe a person’s sex life has anything to do with how effective at their job, so that’s my promise to you today.
Please, PLEASE don’t tell me this is the best our country has to offer. I need to believe there are good, intelligent, honest, hard-working people out there.
And seriously Wiener, at least CONSIDER the hot dog business, I think (for sure) it’s a WIENER WINNER!
