Going for the capillaries

I really didn’t want to talk about Anthony Weiner, no matter how happy his twitter-sexting (dixting?) scandal has made Jon Stewart. But now Weiner will resign, it seems, which may be a relief to Democrats in Congress, but magnifies how totally backwards our standards of “scandal” are in this country.

A Congressman is actually resigning over a “sex” scandal where he didn’t actually have sex, or break any laws. Which is not to say it wasn’t, you know, icky, but it also wasn’t any of our damned business.

Meanwhile, the courts in this country are well on their way to legalizing corporate bribery of public officials. Nothing to see here, move along.
