it's official... TWITTER > CONGRESS

our country's citizenry now cares more about how you tweet than how you legislate.

granted, anthony weiner is a schmuck. he happens to be a schmuck that i like, but he is a schmuck nonetheless. i imagine that, at this point in time, this is a point he would quickly concede.

but why are his tweets at all relevant? why was he confronted about this completely legal behavior? and why were we surprised when he had to lie about a personal issue that he never should have been questioned about? this country's protestant ethic is hypocritical and childish (duh).

well, he'll be resigning shortly and we wont have weiner to kick around anymore. we'll also have one less powerful liberal voice in an already conservative congress because liberals thought it was a better idea politically to hang 'em high than stand behind 'em. we deserve this congress. we deserve david vitter.

I agree. Anthony Weiner was one of the finest progressive voices in the Congress. It's too bad he deluded himself into thinking this wasn't something his enemies would use against him and he wasn't in any danger of being discovered.

Better schmuck than corrupt.
