Today the political news highlight — Anthony Weiner’s confession — was very disturbing. Here is a man who seemed to be a politician with integrity, good sense, and most important a terrific ability to stand up for a cause with good humor. So this confession was a huge disappointment. If you missed the Melissa Harris-Perry’s interview on Rachel Maddow’s show – check it out. As she so elogquently points out, this is not just a scandal, but this sort of thing, in this day and age, represents a betrayal of public trust, and it is no longer acceptable for public officials to indulge in “ick” (unlike prior generations of politicians during times when private lives could be hidden from view).
So in bad need of comic relief, I turned to one of my very favorite YouTube videos … one I hope the our President watches every single day of his elected life!
