You Heard It Here First: Menendez Is Horrid

As a life-long observer of the Garden State's political scene, I've known for years that Bob Menendez was not just a run-of-the-mill political hack, but a truly loathsome political whore.  (And speaking of whores, the noose is tightening around Menendez regarding his debaucherous escapades with underage hookers in the DR.)

But more interesting to me is not the run-of-the-millness of a sex scandal involving a well-known valueless and character-deficient man, but the phony edifice of nobility that is erected around these characters by the supporting cast institutions.  This kind of rhetoric is just so revolting to any one with a brain.
Bob Menendez is “committed to ensuring that every young person is able to reach their full potential,” read a 2012 fundraising solicitation for an October campaign event with the New Jersey Democratic senator, hosted by a political committee called “Women for Menendez.”
It is a double whammy of vomit-inducement.  First, it detracts from actual, real empowerment of women and second it seeks to paint over the horridness of Bob Menendez with a phony gloss of ennobling attributes.
