Look at this patriotic stance:
Doesn’t it just make your heart swell with pride to see a hard-working Congressman out there looking out for our interests? See the Capitol just over his shoulder? See the patriotic lapel pin? Isn’t this just the picture of who you want to represent you?
But, as most of you know, Congressman Chris Lee (R-NY), has resigned quickly on the heels of revealing his true nature:
And, unbelievably, he revealed it on Craig’s List (!!!), trolling for women. He put HIS REAL NAME AND THIS PHOTO on Craig’s List! I mean, really, is someone who does this even smart enough to hold office?
“OOOOOOOH, look at that flexed muscle!” Isn’t that what he wanted to hear? Taking his manly-posed picture in the mirror (this embarrassment is killing me, here—like watching a painful talent show).
I am somewhat known for outrage about this kind of thing, but in this case, it’s hard for me to work up any anger…All I feel, truly, is embarrassed for this sap and sorry for his family.
Bless his heart! Not only has he had to resort to Craig’s List for a date, but he has felt the need to lie about his age ( comin’ up on 47), saying that he is 39! What’s up with that? Can’t stand to be in his 40’s? The you-know-what not working quite like it did when he was 10 years younger? Whew! This is embarrassing…Really, this whole thing is pretty Junior High.
V’s comment on the shirtless Craig’s List photo was that it reminds her of a gorilla beating his chest for attention and to proclaim his, well, “manliness” (??? “Gorillaness?”). Anyway, when I repeated her assessment, Son said, “That’s because that is exactly what he was trying to do.”
Lee’s resignation in humiliation will cost his taxpayers in excess of $1 million for a special election. (So much for his Tea Party connection…)There is no telling what it is costing his wife and child. Yes, he lied about that, too…
So, Mr. Gorilla-Beat-the-Chest, maybe the next picture we see of you is one like this:
It is, after all, the best likeness of the three pictures.
And, while I question the wisdom of any woman looking on Craig’s List for a date, kudos to the woman who ratted him out.
I am sick of this…they do not need to be tolerated. I'm doing my part to give every one of them the publicity he deserves. C
