So Weiner is gone. Good riddance I say, but I’m still left wondering about a few things.
If Weiner just had straight-up sex with a hot young intern, would he have had to resign? Bill Clinton got away with receiving blowjobs from a chubby not-so-hot young intern. What Weiner did doesn’t seem as bad. He didn’t even have physical contact with any women. All he did was talk dirty over the phone and online, and send a few R-rated (not even X-rated) photos.
I think it’s a combination of (1) cybersex has a more perverted stigma about it than regular sex; and (2) Weiner’s name reminds people of a penis.
