OK, someone really needs to have a nice long sit down with troubled New York Democrat Anthony Weiner. In his resignation speech he actually thanked his parents for the “values they instilled in me,” the ones that got him “this far”… which apparently is thrown out of Congress on his ear. Does he not understand that the entire mess he is currently wallowing in was because of the lack of values he displayed?
Here is the absurd line in question in his resignation speech:
And of course I want to express my gratitude to my family: to my mother and father who instilled in me the values that carried me this far…
This is just insensible. What “values” would that be? Would it be the “values” of using the Internet to indiscriminately send nude pictures of himself to strangers? Would those “values” be acting the creepy Internet stalker that constantly contacted underage young women who are easily impressed by his powerful position in government?
This line of nonsense seems to easily fit in the the trope that Democrats neither have values, nor even understand the concept of them.
… and it’s good riddance to Anthony Weiner.
