Weinergate Phase II: The Confession

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.

    The media apologists are now doing stories about how he may have lied, but that’s not enough to force resignation. The same people had to be dragged into reporting the story–a sad state of affairs for the “fourth estate”.

    The thing is, I don’t think Pelosi et al want him around–the lasts thing they want is for him to be their spokesman since he’s lost all credibility. The MSM can try to spin this as “nothing to see here, move along” isn’t going to fly, imo.

    Think about all the moms out there with daughter’s in college with Face Book accounts, I would think they would like to steer their kids away from the slimy underbelly of Congressional Representatives. No? No matter what this guys says, no matter what “fighting words” he uses to try to push the Democratic agenda, he will always be “the wiener guy”. There will be stories written with headlines like “Weiner gets his shorts in a knot over (fill in the blank).” He’s done…put a fork in him.

    My real concern is what this teaches the younger kids who are told in school to “write to your Congressman”. Do the parents have to be concerned that the reply will come complete with jock shots? How are we to teach our kids to take responsibility when they think the only thing they have to do is fake some tearful apology and that’s it…no repercussions for their actions?

    The media says “He may have lied, but that’s not enough..” Really?
    How about SENDING PICTURES to YOUNG WOMEN?
    Breitbart has one picture he won’t release to anybody….imagine if he DID?

    Yet if it was Paul Ryan, it would still be leading on all three major network newscasts. Maybe into next week.

    She’s not exactly calling for his resignation. But I guess when a tax cheat like Rangel doesn’t have to resign his seat……..

    “It just goes to show that every dog has his day”

    Don’t you mean every hotdog has his day?

    Anyway I don’t see what the big deal is. Over here in France before I meet a client I always send a picture of my weiner so he/she will be able to recognize me when I arrive. It’s business etiquette over here. Live with it.

  7. Great story. And amazing call on the Horshack doppelganger thing. It is unbelievable how similar they look.
