Oh dear heavens! . . . . what will we tell the chil.... oh, fuck it - nevermind.
Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) on Wednesday apologized for a photo that circulated anonymously on social media earlier this week which appeared to show him nude.
“While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women. Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended,” he said in a statement Wednesday acknowledging the photo. “I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.”
The censored photo of his genitals, which was shared by an anonymous Twitter account, along with a text message that used graphic language, appeared to be sent by Barton to a woman he was dating.
All they got to do is just admit that they're lascivious bastards just like the rest of us sexually repressed Americans. The Gadfly doesn't understand why that has to be such a godawfully difficult thing to do.
Listen dear readers -- it's none of The Gadfly's business if some 68 year old dude wants to text (in this case) consensual pecker pics to his lady friends - that is a private matter between two adults (albeit freaky ones).
What bothers the gadfly the very most about this tired nonsense is that for the better part of the past three decades conservative politicians like this Texas horny-toad, congress-critter clown have built lucrative careers (32 fucking years for Barton) upon their loudly and arrogantly stated premise, that their political party is the chosen party of God, and that their moral values are superior to those of liberals, thereby sanctifying, in their minds, all of their phony, conservative governing policies.
That is what gets an egregiously displeased bumblebee zipping around in The Gadfly's bonnet.
Joe Barton and the rest of these "moral values" preaching Republicans and Tea Partiers are all major league hypocrites, carelessly hurling stones and other heavy objects at others, whom they feel that they have the right to employ their personal religious values to pass judgment on. They do it all at their own peril in a very fragile, glass house.
And The Gadfly is unrepentant when he tells you that he actually feels pangs of fucking divine joy witnessing the humiliating misery that Joe Barton and some of these other conservative assholes like him are experiencing with all of these sexual improprieties stories going public. Their shameless hypocrisy has brought such requisite misery upon themselves. It's about time.
