Seriously… What Is Going ON With Politicians Showing Off Their Bodies? Now There’s MORE?!?

We are living in a strange world where anyone with a camera phone, a political and 9 percent body fat just can’t keep it to themselves. Now Anthony Weiner apparently has MORE provocative pics?

We are living in a strange world where anyone with a camera phone, a political office and 11 percent body fat just can’t keep it to themselves. Now Anthony Weiner apparently has MORE provocative pics!?

Once upon a time,a political scandal was Gary Hart fully clothed with a woman sitting on his lap. (At the time, I still thought it was pretty harmless.) Now, politicos just can’t keep their shirts on. And then photographing them. And emailing them to attractive young constituents.

Journalist Andrew Breitbart’s website BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com has uncovered more photos of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) showing off his goods, (this time shirtless pics,) that do little to support Weiner’s initial claim that all this craziness was from a hacker.

The shirtless pic was reportedly sent last month to a young woman from an email account that the currently married (but not for long?) Weiner had used as an alias. (More pictures of him, including the infamous, unpixilated underwear shot HERE.)

Apparently New York Congressmen love the posing thing. Earlier this year, Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) (it’s all about being fair and balanced, right?) put his pic Craigslist in the effort of ‘hooking up.’

Seems to me that even beyond the fact that they’re married, when you vie for a public office this kind of thing is simply a bad idea all around. They should be spending less time posing and more time doing the work they keep reminding us about every campaign year.

When you ride a horse to the polls to get attention, be prepared for what happens when you lose. Check out the best responses to Roy Moore’s horse show.

I’m sure it all happened with the best of intentions. Or rather, attentions. Roy Moore, whom I would call embatted Senator Roy Moore if it weren’t for the fact that so many people – for reasons I cannot explain, support him – rode into election day on a horse. (Named Sassy, no less!) The intention, I suppose, was to drive home what a down-home, southern fried, salt-of-the-earth lovin’ all-American country guy he was. By now you know his opinions and the scandalous accusations of predatory behavior that surround him.

The horseback performance was every bit the circus act that we have come to grow accustomed to in the current political climate. There was Roy Moore, in the center ring, and he loved it.

Then he lost the election, and the perfect joke presented itself.

Newspapers, particularly the New York Post and The Daily News, (who were writing memes before there was a name for it, I might add…) took the story by the, er… reigns:

It was the perfect – and obvious joke to throw at a man who thought the joke was on all of us. Even before the newspapers printed these gems (and kudos to the Daily news for taking it all the way,) twitter had already leaped at the perfection that was this response.

Folks were not only quick with a punchline, but also a little critique of the 70 year old’s horseback riding skills were also on deck. Here’s some of the best tweets that came out since the election day sideshow:


Even though Roy Moore lost, his horse Sassy won the Gallop poll.

“It’s only fitting that #Roymoore road in on a horse, he knows little girls love pony’s”- @RealDLHughley

Lastly, folks in-the-know had a lot to say about his form in the first place.
Horse twitter – yes, there’s a twitter community of horse lovers and riders, had lots to say.

Ultimately, the lesson is – if you decide to make a spectacle of yourself – it’s a hell of a lot less embarassing if you win.

WATCH: The Golden Girls Pretty Much Summed Up Marriage Equality Back In 1991

As the Supreme Court discusses whether or not it’s fair that everyone can express their love legally, it’s interesting to note that this scene from The Golden Girls pretty much summed up the argument in favor of equality more than twenty years ago. Picture it: Miami..

Golden Girls Marriage EqualityAs the Supreme Court discusses whether or not it’s fair that everyone can express their love legally, it’s interesting to note that this scene from The Golden Girls pretty much summed up the argument in favor of equality more than twenty years ago.

Picture it: Miami (or Hollywood, depending on your perspective) – It’s season four of the Golden Girls, and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) is upset that her gay brother Clayton wants to have a commitment ceremony with his partner. Leave it to Sophia (Estelle Getty) to set the record straight. (truly no pun intended.)
