Moral decay in politics has many benchmarks. Slick Willy and his cigar make a great example. Clinton managed to keep his job though impeached. A confused and morally bankrupt Congress insured that he kept the highest office in the land. It should have never been a question of whether Bill stayed, but rather how soon could he be jettisoned from the White House. So much for standards and accountability.
Now enter Anthony Weiner. The degenerate who resigned his seat as a New York representative now seeks the New York mayor’s office. Only in the land of confusion where low information voters rule the day could such a pathetic candidate have any traction. The new revelations of continued sexting will probably be the death knell for this pervert, but ponder the fact that Weiner’s first scandal didn’t encourage him to put the brakes on his political ambitions given blatantly obvious lapse of good judgement. However, it seems good judgement isn’t a necessary job skill in politics; just look around at all the red ink and it doesn’t take long to realize that the public is incapable of electing responsible leaders.
Simply put, a man who jeopardizes his marriage demonstrates poor judgement. The callous nature of his perversion is multiplied when his conduct doesn’t cease nor diminish with the knowledge that he will soon be a father. Such profound disrespect of his wife and his family to be should automatically disqualify him from holding any public office. Not so in New York.
