Anthony Weiner has resigned in disgrace
After tweeting pictures of his junk all over the place.
His situation is not what one from a sex scandal expects,
Given that it’s a sex scandal with no sex.
Chris Lee too had embarrassing pictures,
And like Weiner didn’t run afoul of any Congressional strictures.
But thoughLeedidn’t directly to temptation succumb,
At least he was trying to get some.
Ex-Congressman Weiner wasn’t even trying to get it on,
Unlike Brett Favre who used his pictures as a come-on.
Are illicit pictures without sex worse than illicit sex without pics?
Morally no but in PR terms yes (that’s politics).
Here’s Hardball’s 6/16/11 panel discussion about Weiner’s resignation.
Here’s The Last Word’s 6/17/11 Weiner comedy retrospective.
