Well, I wasn't going to post about Weinergate, but just have a rather small nit to pick. Everyone is calling the picture that has not been confirmed to be that of Congressman Weiner's briefs containing the turgid supposed junk of the Congressman 'lewd'. I know that there are a whole bunch of other issues, such as a sitting Congressman using his verified twitter account to follow a bevy of girls half his age, etc. and the fact that he will neither confirm nor deny that the package in question is his.....
But I'm not seeing it as all that bad, lewd-wise. After all it really doesn't show more than David Beckham's Armani underwear ad (although the Congressman comes out on the short side of a comparison with Beckham).
Let's do a comparison, shall we?
And Beckham (definitely):
In the newest battle of the bulges, I'm calling Beckham a clear winner. And if that's lewd, I'm okay with that. At least he claims his package as his own.
