This isn't a sex scandal. Weiner is just a lowly pervert.

Bill is still a rock star. Hillary is about to be our next president. Kerry threw away his medals, Obama went to Rev Wrights church fop 20 yrs. Let's not forget his friends Ayers and Rezcko. Who had the money in their freezer? A member of the Klan was in what party? Weiner is running again. Don't worry Edwards will return. The only "R" will be Sanford. See how far he gets?

Sex scandals are great business for the
news media, but what Weiner did was not a sex scandal
since there was no sex involved. He showed himself
in his underwear. But really, who would want to
see him in his underwear? It was silly and stupid and completely forgivable.

Nuff said.
