Let me say this right off… this is not a political post. Not technically. I am a liberal, who believes in liberal values, but what I am about to ponder clearly applies to all parties – and celebrities too. And sports stars. Pretty much all men in a position of power who have become unhinged with reality.
Why do they think we want to see their wang?
And why is it always only men?
Well, women would show off other parts of their anatomy, but you get the idea.
There are powerful women out there who do stupid things. Drugs. Affairs. Lies. Theft. But I cannot think of ONE off the top of my head who got into a position of power and then started shoving her breasts all over the internet.
Women do that to GET to the top. Not from the top.
I’m no psychologist, but I do have a psychology minor from college, which makes me qualified to write about such things. Actually, it means I know jack shit. I am just wondering. WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES MEN DO THIS?
Think about it. They go into politics, some of them even with good intentions at heart. They achieve a certain amount of success and they move to Crazyland? They think they are untouchable? They think just because 5, 10, 100 other politicians, actors, singers, basketball players got caught doing the exact same thing, THEY WON’T?
AND WHY AREN’T THEY MORE CAREFUL ABOUT IT? That’s a psychology research study all on it’s own.
And again, back to the women. Madonna showed us her breasts, but she never lied about it. She was all, HERE ARE MY BREASTS, PEOPLE! TAKE EM OR LEAVE EM!
Did none of these people learn from Clinton and Bush?
Directions for next political scandal:
1. Get caught (because you will). – CLINTON
2. Get hounded about it (because you will). – CLINTON
3. Do NOT, under any circumstances, lie about it. – CLINTON
4. Tell people it’s “private business” and they will miraculously leave you alone. – BUSH
And yes – I know the minute I hit post, someone will come up with ONE, SINGULAR story of a woman politician sexually harassing her staff. But the numbers are staggering in the dude column, yos. I never heard about Oprah or Queen Elizabeth or Condoleeza Rice making anyone do anything inappropriate. Except for reading some of those books, OPRAH.
So, it comes back to the chicken and the egg.
Does power create these douchebags?
Or attract them?
