I find the current firestorm about Donald Trump's comments regarding his sexual exploits most interesting. I also find them most hypocritical. Let's think about that for a bit today.
Donnie didn't say anything that most men have not said many times during their lives. Over half the men I play golf with will make exactly the same sort of comments at some point during our round. If I spend any time in the presence of men at a social gathering at which women are not present most of the men will make similar comments at some point during the conversation. Most of the men I worked with during the early days of my janitorial career said exactly the same sorts of things that Donnie said. So I guess I don't understand why so many Republican men are walking around in shock, claiming that they have never heard expressions like the ones Donnie used ever before in their lives. Can it be true that they have lived such morally pure lives they have never come into contact with someone like Donnie? I don't think so.
This website lists 25 prominent and influential Republicans who have committed adultery. The list includes Rudy Giuliani, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Dole, George Bush and Ronald Reagan. Here is another list of prominent Republicans who have committed adultery. Most of the fellows on this list are not on the first list. The list includes Neil Bush, Bill O'Reilly and Dr. Laura (I realize she is a woman. I am not a sexist and will label women as adulterers as quickly as I will condemn my own gender). If I expand the search from sexual immorality to criminal behavior many more career politicians are ensnared in the trap. This website lists all criminal convictions of recent career politicians. Here is a list of all sex scandals involving career politicians since the founding of this immoral country. Twenty two prominent career politicians have been caught since 2000. Most of them continue to "serve" their constituents as career politicians. The Democrats are not immune to sexual misconduct. Here is a list of prominent Democrats who are guilty as well. This list contains 48 names and restricts itself to those Democrats who are well known. It includes some of my personal favorites like Gary Hart, Ted Kennedy and Eliot Spitzer.
According to this website, "29 members of Congress have been accused of spousal abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses, 3 have been arrested for assault, 71 have credit reports so bad they can't qualify for a credit card, 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges, 8 have been arrested for shoplifting, 21 are current defendants in lawsuits, and in 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity." Talk about a rogues gallery of immoral men! I especially like the fact that spousal abuse is on the list.
It seems as if I have strayed a wee bit from my original point. That is easy to do when I get to thinking about the follies, foibles and downright immoral behavior of the career politicians who rule over us. Let me get back to the point. Do you believe for one second that most of the men who are "serving" as our elected rulers do not share Donnie's perspective on women? Do you believe for one second that most of them are not guilty of doing exactly what Donnie did, or at least wishing that they could have done what Donnie did? Do you not believe that the only reason they have not been exposed is due to the fact that, as career politicians, they are aware when the mic is still on? Do you honestly believe that most of the men who rule over us have not made sexual advances on their staffers? Do you expect me to believe for one second that the power, honor and glory (praised be their names!) that comes with political office has never been exploited by the great majority of our male leaders for their own sexual satisfaction? If you believe those things I have some prime Florida coast land I would like to sell you.
Donnie is no different than all unregenerate (a theological term....look it up) men and no different than a lot of regenerate men. He is enslaved to his flesh, like all men either previously were or currently are. The only thing that distinguishes Donnie from most other men is the power he has that is a by product of his wealth. Put in a position of power similar to Donnie's most men would act out their fantasies exactly as Donnie describes the way he acted his out. Put 100 career politicians in a locker room with Donnie and they would have been fist bumping him as he described his sexual exploits. So don't try and tell me that he is any different than almost all other men. Indeed, his common nature perfectly qualifies him to be the next King of the Socialist Democracy of Amerika.
