New York’s Congressman Horshack has admitted that he has lied his ass off to the media, to his wife, and his constituents for the past several days about the now famous hot dog photo. Of course there have been tears forced back, many apologies, and lots of expression of shame and guilt. And for one brief second I started to think that the guy deserved a small break because he did sound sincere. But once I remembered what an absolute jerk this guy is, I then snapped out of my moment of altered cognition and came to my senses.
The one thing I did not hear from him was, for the good of the nation and to preserve what little integrity of the United States Congress that still exists, his resignation.
During the press conference portion of his confirmation (of what we already suspected to be true), he said that he doesn’t believe that he violated any laws. I am not a lawyer and I don’t play one on TV, but I thought online porn is technically illegal. I am not a prude and really couldn’t care any less about what anyone does on their own time with their own property. But once again, this guy isn’t named Weiner for nothing and he should not be allowed to continue in any government capacity. He needs to resign immediately and seek gainful employment as a pizza delivery man or apply for a license to sell hot dogs on the street, somewhere in his district.
He is a jackass of epic proportions. He has one of the highest congressional staff turnovers because he berates them for the slightest errors. So now that I see him spending a few minutes of shame in front of the nation saying how sorry he is, I have no compassion for him. It just goes to show that every dog has his day. And with the amount of people there exists in this world that he has most certainly pissed off (and on), it’s a wonder this hasn’t happened sooner. It’s amazing that someone hasn’t fronted this prick out long before now.
