When Democrats do something exceptionally stupid – as they do most days – I’m quick to call them out on it. But it’s only fair to do the same when Republicans screw up… or screw around.
Unfortunately, it looks like we have a case of both in the form of one Representative Christopher Lee, a Republican congressman from the 26th District of New York and apparently an utter moron.
The married man just got outed as a cheating cad, thanks to his blatant posts on Craigslist. And the accompanying topless picture is humiliating, to say the least. Sure, he has a nice enough body, but anytime a man older than 15 is caught taking a picture of himself flexing in front of a mirror… well, it’s just pathetic… on so many levels.
You’d think that such unfaithful imbeciles would get a clue from past infidelities amongst politicians, men like Larry Craig, Mark Sanford, John Edwards, John Ensign, Eliot Spitzer, Mark Foley, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and just about every single Kennedy.
If none of those men got away with it, why in the world did Lee think he could? I’d imagine there is no way to cover all of your bases when cheating on one’s spouse, as even Spitzer, who dealt with professionals, found out the hard way. And Lee wasn’t even close to being so careful, as evident by how he took to Craigslist in the first place.
That level of stupidity is on par with Sanford, who disappeared for 7 days to be with his mistress, or Clinton, who trolled through so many women that the law of averages demanded one of them get him into trouble.
Christopher Lee’s Blatantly Obvious Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
Worse yet, Lee sent this message as part of a larger email train on January 14, 2011:
“how do people think you aren't going to figure it out once you see them in person.”
Now, that was about people sending inaccurate pictures of themselves to potential dates, but still. The words are such an obvious case of foreshadowing that you’d think a talent-less author wrote it in a tacky novel.
Plus, for a supposedly educated Congressman, he certainly plays fast and loose with grammar. Is he really so lazy that he can’t capitalize the first letter of a sentence or end one with the proper punctuation?
That’s quite possibly almost as pathetic as his readiness to cheat or his frat-boy way of going about it. Why didn’t he just troll bars for tramps like most losers? At least then it could have been a case of he-said-she-said or mistaken identity.
Clearly, this man was stupid and selfish enough to get caught. Hopefully, he’ll grow up someday.
