Well, fuckballs. I didn’t want to write about Weiner’s weiner because I had written what I thought was my definitive post about it. Of course the fact that I had to update it mid-writing it should have warned me that there would be more to uncover, so to speak. Still, I was heartily sick of hearing about Weiner at that point, and now, it’s a week later, and we’re STILL fucking talking about it. Still. With all the shit going on in this country, we’re still fucking talking about Weiner’s weiner.*
Economy sucks; jobs are being lost every day; we have a debt ceiling to raise; the housing market is stagnant; the Republicans have lost their collective minds. These are just a few of the major issues we face, and yet: OHMYGOD! WEINER WEINER WEINER! Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! It’s always about Marcia! Like, the economy and other important issues are Jan Brady.
As teresamac said in the comments of my last post on the weiner:
…This scandal is diverting people from other things that are going on in the country. Like Clarence Thomas like you mention asiangrrlMN. And there are other very important issues being ignored, for instance, here we are a country with no coherent, comprehensive energy policy, and the House of Representatives subcommittee on energy and water resources would like to defund NREL (national renewable energy lab) by eliminating the DofE’s Office of Science and Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Programs.
Instead the nation is talking about Weiner’s weiner. But what is more important than our current energy crisis, yeah you know it Sex well not sex really since I don’t think he had sex, these scandals do, they divert our attention from important subjects….
I can understand covering the story. I mean, it’s not every day (I hope) a sitting Congressman twits pics of his dicks to chicks. So, a one-day story, yeah. And, he lied, so, yes, I can see some additional coverage of the non-event. However, when it was all Weiner all the time, my mind clutched up and refused to comprehend. I have taken frequent hiatuses from the world of political blogging because I couldn’t fucking take it any more. With all the batshitcrazy insane things the Republicans are doing (including playing hostage with the debt ceiling), why the fuck were we still roasting the Weiner? By the way, there are rumors that Boehner had an affair, and if this turns out to be true, I’m quitting politics for good. I cannot BEAR another solid month of jokes about penii. Plus, I’ve used up all my good ones already.
Anyhoo, if you want a good dissection of the Weiner situation and what it means to liberals, check out this link by the Rooted Cosmopolitan. If you want to read what skeery terrorist**, Juan Cole, has to say about the worst things Weiner has said, and none of them twits or sexts, click on this link. Both of these links contain thoughtful elocution. As you may expect, you’re not going to get that here. I’m still pissed about the whole situation, which means I must rant. So. Fasten your seatbelts, folks. asiangrrlMN is about to hit eleven-billionty in pissiness.
