We need a NEW Oath of Office for Congress

I think that the old one is perfectly fine for people of conscience with the slightest thread of moral fiber, but the WeinerGate scandal raises the need for some sort of enforceable code of conduct that Congress should be legally required to adhere to while in office. 
  • Jamie Jeffords has a good blog post on the Anthony Weiner matter in which he also explores the whole sordid mess in recent years from Gingrich dumping his dying wife to Barney Frank's escapades with male prostitutes and David Vitter having his whores diaper him. (LINK)

Once again, Andrew Breitbart has made the mainstream media look foolish as they take him on when he makes a statement. He has the uncanny knack of being right. Eventually it might sink in to even the most bigoted liberal brain...or maybe I'm giving them too much credit?

Do women really want men to send them this sort of photograph (Courtesy American Perspective) "Congressman Weiner's bulge"(D-NY)? Maybe coming from a Congressman it has a lot more impact on the female imagination? Historically, homosexual Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) wanted an intern to measure his large male part and he ended his political career on that.

What sort of enforceable oath could we create? Matters of honor would seem to have to be written in stone. Should these merely cover sexual misconduct or should the oath extend to corruption of the sort we've seen by the corrupt Congressman Charlie Rangle (D-NY)? Clearly the House Ethics Manual is either it is not enforceable or it doesn't take things far enough (READ IT HERE).

Read Meagan Broussard's account of Weiner's...weiner on BIG GOVERNMENT.

  1. This is Charlene who cannot post except anonymously.

    There's a few more names for your list, and I have no doubt you're aware of them; Sen. Ensin schuping his employee and his parents paying her family off with Sen. Coburn's counsel, Sen. Craig and his wide stance in the public toilet, etc.

    The thing with guys sending pictures of their privates over the internet; that happens all the time. Sometimes women send pictures of theirs back. It's not a crime although it could be categorized as being cyber unfaithful for those in relationships or marriage with another.

  2. Women don't want to see Wiener's wiener. Trust me on that. I wish I could scrub the vision out of my brain.

  3. Charlene - unethical conduct in office is simply that. And it should be dealt with harshly. I'm with Opus in that I have no desire to see Weiner's part - or women's parts, etc. I understand that it happens in public, but most of us expect a higher standard of conduct from politicians. I know that it's a vain hope -- but hope shines eternal.

  4. How much is the taxpayer billed for "Genital viewing exercises?"
