What An Idiot

Portrait of a fool

Married Congressman Resigns over Internet Photo
Congressman Christopher Lee, a married Republican congressman from New York, resigned from office Wednesday after a report surfaced that he sought dates with women on Craigslist. See the article at the NY Post.
Turns out Lee had sent a photo of himself shirtless to a woman on Craigslist.  You can see the photo here (spew alert).

“I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness,” Lee, said in a statement.
Gawker goes on to accuse Lee of being a hypocrite because he opposes DADT and federal funding for abortion.  Gawker says his actions “suggests a certain comfort with publicly scrutinizing others’ sex lives”.  Really, isn’t that a little farfetched?
What this congressman did was completely wrong and foolish yet because he is a Republican he will be thoroughly trashed by the media.  But hey, it’s not like he drove a car off a bridge while drunk, killing a woman.

Like I have always said, if you want to be a professional politician and rape, pillage and plunder your way along, make sure you have the all-powerful “D” behind your name, and the lefty media will leave you alone.

Um what exactly does federal funding for abortion have to do with anything? Gawker is really stretching on that one.

This is a big blow to the people who elected such politician, what was in his mind? Posting something on the web is the biggest mistake of his life, wow! I really wonder, it seems like he was making a tomb for himself to be buried with.

I truly believe that most, if not all politicians are narcissists to begin with. Then when they get elected and re-elected, surrounded by sycophants and adoring females, they become even more narcissistic. Remember then Secretary-of-State Henry Kissinger’s explanation for why beautiful actresses such as Marlo Thomas and Jill St. John would go out with him, “Power is the greatest aphrodisiac”? And so politicians such as this idiot become so grandiose they think “Rules Don’t Apply to Me.” They get ever more reckless and though married, do grotesquely stupid things like posting a topless pic of himself to solicit dates on… Read more »

Eowyn, You’re totally right about that. As the old saying goes about politicians, anyone willing to take the job is not qualified for it.

Your comments on the traits of politicians are exactly right…which includes all of the ones that you support as well.

He still gets the last laugh — I’m sure he gets to draw a “pension” (full salary & benefits) for as long as he lives.

He’ll probably start a new career as a political commentator or sex therapist.
Look at Elliot Spitzer’s revival on CNN…
