Why are men--even highly intelligent and talented ones such as Anthony Weiner--always terminally stupid in the hands of a conniving female?
Anthony Weiner was, and I would hope is, a bright spot in a dull lineup of Democratic leaders. He speaks the truth to power and is not a coward like Barack Obama in the face of withering Republican opposition.
For these reasons, Weiner has been set up by a bimbo from the enlisted ranks of the US Army. And her "exposť" of Weiner conveniently comes on Fox News. She is not worthy of polishing his boots or cleaning his home, but she has tarnished, if not destroyed, his political career.
Such is the nature of the male-female relationship in this society at this time.
I wish we humans were monoclinous in form. That is, I wish each individual was complete in itself, having both male and female characteristics and needing nothing external to be complete. Roses get along well this way. No bimbo rose from the enlisted ranks of flowers can wreak havoc in a rose garden by offering some blue talk or photos of her petal undersides to the other roses!
Seriously, I have seen too many talented and important men destroyed or damaged in terms of reputation and honor by a self-serving female. I would have thought Representative Anthony Weiner of New York State too intelligent to have been trapped in such a manner. But apparently not.
The incident is not very important in terms of Weiner's worth as a legislator and an intelligent man, but this is America and members of the hypocritical Republican base, most of whom probably access pornography frequently and pursue illicit affairs regularly, will never cease harping on the matter for political gain.
One more talented and good man has been damaged or destroyed by a vicious vixen with half his intelligence quotient and potential.
Rudyard Kipling wrote in his poem, The Betrothed, "And a woman is only a woman, but a good Cigar is a Smoke."
It's something to think about, boys,
