…an Oscar Mayer Wiener, because even that would be better than being Congressman Wiener from New York. Caught red-handed, as they say, “tweeting” a picture of his “junk” to some college co-ed. No surprise there. Exactly how long is the list of politicians caught in odd, deviant, or both…sexual situations? Of the five hundred or so on The Hill, I’m guessing there may be a dozen who have actual moral fiber.
Still, it couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Only Barney Frank has a more acidic tongue, and in Barney’s case I’d rather not tell you where the excess acid came from. Just months ago I watched Wiener on the Floor lamenting the loss of federal funding(your money) for National Public Radio. Imagine a world without Click and Clack? Wiener went on and on lamenting the loss, using marginal satire and fancying himself witty.
What is most astonishing about Wiener-Gate is that he can’t answer one simple question. Is the picture authentic? For me, if there is one, single question that I can answer with complete authority and without hesitation, it is the question…”is this a picture of your penis?” No…it isn’t. Like most people, I would remember that. Also, like most people, that would never happen. Like most people, the thought never crossed my mind, and if it did, such a barrage of red flags, sirens and air-raid whistles would resound that it would overpower me.
Talk about an activity with “danger” written all over it. Folks remark that it’s because there are cameras in phones and wrist watches now. Huh? So…it was just too much trouble back in the 40′s with those big cameras with the elephant trunk on them? Maybe adults were too busy being adults back then, to dream up such a bad idea.
You know, there’s a product out there called “Instant Underpants”. It’s true. A little tablet you drop in a glass of water and it expands into a pair of reasonably becoming underwear. If spies have to carry a cyanide tab…then every politician should have an Instant-Undies tab in their pocket.
