Shirtless Congressmen

Two out, one gets a pass

New York Congressman Chris Lee resigned in disgrace within hours after it was revealed he had sent a shirtless photograph he had taken of himself to a woman on CraigsList.

New York Congressman Anthony Weiner apparently learning nothing from Chris Lee’s implosion, sent shirtless photos of himself over the Internet to at least six women.  He has also been publicly humiliated, and tearfully apologized though stubbornly refused to resign. Creepy Weiner, a newlywed who even sent photos of his genitals to other women, finally resigned in the wake of his ego-driven lunacy.

Arizona Congressman Jeff Flake, possessing a Libertarian streak, a colossal ego, and a propensity for adding bleached streaks to his darkening locks, takes a solo vacation on a deserted Marshall island with only his tripod and camera to keep him company. Flake chronicles every fire he builds and crab he catches.  And wouldn’t you know? He sends shirtless photos of himself to the immediate world.  While not meeting the standard of inappropriate behavior, it qualifies as exceedingly creepy.  Flake returned to campaign for the US Senate, unopposed — at the time.

Go figure.

    You guys crack me up! This is right on the money!! First guy bares his chest to one single woman and he resigns immediately. The next guy shows his stuff to 6 (at last count) but digs in his heels and says he‘s not going anywhere, although that may be open to dispute. Jeff Flake takes his shirtless photos and blasts them from border to border and coast to coast and all the ships at sea and is heir apparent to Kyl’s senate seat. He’s Teflon. But why???

    Ain’t this just symbolic…

    Americans are being robbed blind by the greatest theft and wealth transfer in the history of this planet and, for the most part, they don’t even realize it. And these clowns in the pictures are in on the theft.

    By the time we’ve lost the shirts off OUR backs, it will be too late.

    How Prophetic…

    He’s Teflon, Sig, because he has been anointed by the party elite. We foolishly give them the power and they kick us in the chops. Keep standing and applauding when they merely enter a room. This is what you get.

    PS One of your better posts of late, Seeing Red. It gave me a good laugh. Truth has a way of making humor more uproarious.

    They are all creepy. Can you imagine if female politicians sent such photos?

  5. Overtaxed1 says:

    Oh but “boys will be boys” and the country doesn’t expect much of those politicians or society’s members so why pretend that these poor values are a shock.

  6. Jana Simmons says:

    One word fits them all: “Arrogance.” They all think they’re hot.

    Most guys lust over women’s chests. These dudes clearly prefer their own.

    I’m getting the impression you really, really don’t like Flake. At least he’s not one of these corrupt politicians who is actually getting fat off of coroporate lobbyist gifts. Not sure why being in shape is such a negative in Seeing Red’s eyes.

    Anyhow, 30 seconds on google scored me shirtless pictures of Obama, Putin, Reagan, JFK and even Nixon…who was in surprisingly good shape.

    I’m sure that a modified search for Italian politicians would produce some females in the mix.

    I’m scared to search any more, though, because I am terrified I might stumble upon a shirtless shot of Hillary Clinton. There’s not enough eye bleach in the world.

      Congrats on your picture search of shirtless politicians!
      Just one question should be answered: were Obama, Putin, Reagan, JFK, or even Nixon engaged in “self-photography?”

      The foundation of Jeff’s “Flake-iness” is his toxic narcissism — so paramount to his “well-being” that he goes to extraordinary lengths to chronicle his self-love before a camera lens, then strives to circulate his self-produced “beefcake” to what he perceives as an eagerly awaiting public.

      One final note: you claim that somehow “His Flake-iness” is not held in thrall by corporate lobbyists’ gifts. Really? How else would you describe his campaign war chest being filled by the “Open Borders/Amnesty” crowd, and his calculated “campaign conversion” to suddenly and conveniently renounce his repeated sponsorship of Amnesty and DREAM Act legislation?

      No thanks, Steve—we’ve seen this act before…played out by one (mercifully shirt-wearing) John McCain!

  9. Another LD11 PC says:

    Guys, I hate to bring this up, but there’s some kind of ‘closeted’ “life choice” these guys are engaging in that going on here.

    I don’t care if the claim or report states sent to a woman or not. Normal people don’t do these things.

      Indeed there is something wrong with elected congressmen wanting to strut their stuff. When they take office, I expect political integrity and action on behalf of the American people. We get precious little of either. What these fools actually put on display is an outrageous amount of pompous vanity. With the two New Yorkers, it’s clear they were trolling for babes. What could the explanation for Jeff Flake’s beefcake shots be? Any guy who bleaches his hair does it because he thinks he’s hot and wants to be hotter. Poor Cheryl. She’s got to know she can never look as good as her hubby thinks he does.

        Slick Willie PROVED that sexual devienancy is O.K. while in office…& certain kinds-a sex ain’t sex @ all!

    I’ve read there is actually a congressman named Crapo. Flake runs him a close second in the appropriate name department. They’re both BYU alumni.
