So today two Members of the United States Congress announced that they were leaving office. First there was New York Republican Congressman Chris Lee who got caught sending shirtless photos of himself to a woman who was not his wife. Isn't it refreshing to see a Politician giving someone the shirt off HIS back?
Yes, he contacted some woman on Craig's list who was complaining that all the men on CL (do people really call it CL?) looked like Toads. Actually, I think Toads are probably a cut above most of the guys cruising the Craig's List social scene. C'mon! Craig's List. Really? You want to hook up in the same place you sold that old couch that your cat peed on?
But like any good public servant, Chris Lee sent her a picture of himself, bare chested -- but then he had to ruin it all by lying about his identity and his age -- he said he was 39 instead of 46!! Really? He thought seven years would make a difference to a woman willing to go out with a guy who takes half naked pictures of himself and sends them to strangers?
On the Internet?
But on the Democratic side, there's Senator Jim Web from Virginia who's retiring after only one term. Remember, he's the guy who got elected because George Allen, the Republican, called a young Indian American a macaca --or basically a monkey. But that's all ancient history because George Allen wants his old seat back -- except that the Tea Party doesn't want him to get it. They've go their own candidate who's going to challenge him because, after all, calling a man a monkey is only a step away from calling a monkey man's ancestor. And then we're teaching evolution in the schools, and letting Muslims have mosques and then the next thing you know that Caliphate that Glenn Beck keeps talking about will be taking over the US and then Congressman Chris Lee's problems will all be over because he'll be able to buy as many wives as he wants on Craig's list.
