Personally, I don’t really care about Anthony Weiner’s sex life one way or the other. And I don’t care if what he did hurt his wife. She had to have known he was an overbearing, preening narcissist when she married him. Heck, those were probably the qualities that attracted her to him in the first place. Well, this is what you get when you marry someone like that. What did she expect – a dutiful provider? Furthermore, unlike some of Ted Kennedy’s wilder escapades, Representative Weiner didn’t break the law or kill anybody.
However, to represent his constituents in Washington and to conduct the business of the state, a Congressman needs to maintain a certain level of honour and dignity. But as of this Monday, Representative Anthony Weiner couldn’t be any less dignified if he had a red nose and a seltzer bottle.
