    Yes Weiner lied and he's an idiot for having done what he did
    The WWYT Factor in this is off the charts
    But this points to a bigger point

    What's the big f**king deal about showing your dick in your computer screen???
    I don't get it
    I get guys contacting me everyday with screen shots of them naked or even worse with just a hard on?
    Is this supposed to entice me to do the same?
    I dunno ... am I missing something ?
    Yeah I am shirtless and if a guy I find sexy shows me sexy picts I will respond but the video thing makes me yawn icon_confused.gif

    It's that we're so overexposed to it from all directions that it's lost its titillation value. We spend more time trying to duck all the porno spam that we become sick of it and immune to it. The Weiner's weiner thing became a big deal because its such a cute opportunity for puns and it became quite competitive . Its run its course now and its time to move on. All the folks he sent it to were of age to the best of my knowledge and he never met any of them so its best left for the wife of the weiner and the weiner to deal with.

    I’m tired of politics becoming as criminalized as it has so I really hope that it doesn’t go further. And believe me, this guy couldn't be further from me politically.

    It isn't a big F'g deal, but the infotainment business turned it into one. From what I"ve read he was a rising star. Who knows what he'd have accomplished. Elliot Spitzer is another one taken down for threatening the power establishment on Wall Street. He was aggressively prosecuting the kind of systemic fraud that eventually imploded our economy.

    "rising star" Good one and one that I don't think I've heard before.

    Indeed Weiner was a "rising star", but it sounds like this could eclipse any of that.

    Well he's a newly married man and most people would think he should have his mind on his business rather than personal escapades. It doesn't bode well for trustworthiness, most would think. Each of these kinds of events are different. Weiner or a Larry Craig or Ensign or a half dozen others.
    The bottom line, it makes the politician look compromised.

    You made a point..."He's a newly married man" and that makes this almost worse than if he was say married to the same woman for 30 years. If that were the case, one could argue that he was just bored after a 30 year marriage and so he seeked stimulation elsewhere. But being newly married, it really makes him look like an untrustworthy possibly sex-addicted cad. Should be interesting to see if his marriage survives this, let alone his career.

    I dunno
    I just find it sad .... That ANY man would sit in front of a computer screen in a darkened room and Jo to somebody hundreds of miles away

    And Im by NO means against porn
    This just seems so secondary to actually being with someone else that it's not worth the effort

    And it starts at a young age if the stories I hear from some of the kids, 18+, that I work out with are any indication. Keyboard manufactures must be very happy.

    That's why the Congressman Weiner dust up is a non issue.
    He didn't show anything but his bare chest and a bulge in his underwear.
    He didn't send the pics to anyone under age.
    He didn't solicit sex.

    As pointed out elsewhere, these people are idiots. Why would you want to entrust someone who is as smarmy and dishonest a greater control over your life, your job and your money?

    Why would you trust any of them ...period?
    They prostitute to get and stay in office...just to profit from it when they leave.

    I've been kind of tuned out lately. Sometimes you just have to.
    What enormous story of importance is being marginalized to cover this nonsense?
