U. S. Rep. Anthony Weiner: his “private” morals have no effect on his public job?


Some might say that the “private”  varying actions of some of the representatives of the people — such as Schwarzeneggar, Ensign, Spitzer, Gingrich, Weiner, et al — have no effect on the public work they do “for the people” and ought not matter to voters when these kinds of politicians run for office or remain in office… 

The French for years have tolerated or ignored or enjoyed politicians who are different animals in private than they are in public, so people such as Dominique Strauss-Kahn apparently for years have been allowed to thrive in that political system…

Don’t the perverted “private” morals exhibited by some elected officials have a deleterious effect on the body politic and on how they “govern” ,  and so is it not best to remove from office as soon as possible those politicians who cross the line?…

Republicans Gingrich, Schwarzeneggar, Ensign, 3 peas in a putrid political pod — are there others?


But they have repented, mended their ways and sought forgiveness, so let’s let bygones be bygones because their personal failings brought no harm, no foul to the body politic!?   Republicans, from the party of Family Values, deserve much better —  you think?

Furthermore, a bit long the political slogan, but how does this sound, “Vote Gingrich for president 2012 because he’s only like  every other American, an imperfect Christian, and his current wife was on the church choir when he met her…”?!

Person(s) of the Week: parents of Luís Santos – Luís was killed in an attack involving the son of a political ally of Arnold Schwarzenegger


[A.P. photo]

Along with his associates, Esteban, the son of Fabian Nuñez, attacked some college students because the attackers were not permitted to attend a private student party…  Nuñez is an ex Speaker of the Assembly in California…  In the attack, a student died and others suffered serious knife wounds…  For his violent actions, the Court gave Mr. Nuñez’s son 16 years in prison,  but in the last hours of his governorship, Arnold Schwarzenegger lessened the sentence to 7 years…

Mr. and Mrs. Santos, parents of Luis Santos ( who died in the knifings), for various reasons have filed suit to overturn Schwarzenegger’s  reduction of sentence — including that it appears the action was taken by the governator as a crass political move to help the son of  his political crony, Mr. Nuñez. 

The Santoses are commended for attempting to right a wrong…

Potpourri Pan America: ESPN continues chauvinistic, Obama gets a pass, Global Warming goes nude, Arabs kill Christians, Schwarznegger rewards political crony,… and what else is new?

Ponder this:

1.  ESPN sportsters continue to be the same old dysfunctional bunch — boys will be boys,… uh,… ol’ geezers will be ol’  geezers, it seems (no offense meant to ol’ geezers) — come on, it’s the 21st century, fellas…  By the way, ESPN, isn’t it long past the time when women ought to have been promoted into the broadcast booth rather than eternally condemned to walk the sidelines and the stands?

2.  How ’bout dem terrorist Arabs killin’ Christians — they want respect and harp that their word can be trusted…  Say what?!

3. Obama’s lap — the news media does not blame the president for the oil price increases at the pump?  What if Bush were still in office?!

4.  sexy makeover — for Global Warming, or simply nudity for the sake of just nudity…  How about Al Gore sans his skivvies?!  No, let’s not go there…

5. Give people a  friggin’ break   — really, all the college athletes are moral purists and the NCAA the purist of them all ???

6.  southern California    — Global Warming and the world freezes?  Even southern California has been been snowed-in…

7.  The outgoing “Republican” California “Governator” commutes sentence of Democratic political crony — came in with the hopes of decent people and left the state in shambles and he as corrupt as one of  the worse of the worse politicians!!!…
