Whats Up With Weiner?
Giving a bad name to weiners everywhere...
The recent social-political scandal to sweep across American media is Weinergate. It has taken over stories of genetically engineered e. coli bugs, devistating tornado's and even Gingrich's crumbling campaign trail. Anthony Weiner has certainly made a name for himself, and one that quiet frankly, weiners everywhere are disgraced to share a name with.
So what's the big deal? Why are people all that interested in the bulge that boinked a girl on twitter?
You said weiner...
To tell you the truth, it's not the fact that yet another politician has been caught in sex scandal. It's not that Anthony Weiner really is anyone all that special, or that what he's done is anything out of the ordinary in our un-ordinary world.
It's all about his name. Humans are instinctively attracted to anything that has to do with sex. It's the same reason why camel cigarettes sells so many poisonous death sticks (have you looked at the face of that camel recently?). Weiner's commonly bring two thoughts to the average American mind - hot dogs and penises. Two of our biggest vices - eating and having sex.
Even Bill Clinton didn't get this much attention during his presidential sexual scandal. Which might be the reason Mr. Weiner called and apologized to clinton for the ordeal....
