You're a naughty, naughty boy!

Psst. . . How well do you REALLY know your spouse?!

What is this, “The Year of the Intern”?! Every time I turn on the TV lately, the headlines are plastered with news of saucy political sex scandals taking place amongst America’s politicians.

It all takes me on a journey back in time to the days of “Slick Willie” (AKA President Bill Clinton) and the good ol’ Monica Lewinsky political sex scandal.

Reporter: “Mr. President, have you at any time in the past engaged in sex acts with intern, Monica Lewinsky?”
Slick Willie: “No, sir. Absolutely not. I swear that I have NEVER had sexual relations with that woman”.

Yeah. Right. We believe you. (Currently winking).

More recently than Slick’s incident, has been the Sex, Texts, and Lies scandal that recently rocked the community of Detroit with their Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, having had a long term sexual affair with his Chief of Staff, Christine Beatty. The circumstances of this particular scandal evolved out of a Whistleblower’s lawsuit which involved the unjust firing of two former Detroit police officers, and the Mayor perjuring himself under oath (lying on the witness stand ) pertaining to that case. Apparently, unbeknownst to the Detroit City Council, he (the mayor) made a secret deal to cover up those facts, which cost the taxpayers in the city of Detroit only a measly. . . $9,000,000.00. . .

Is that all?! (Currently shrugging).

Yeah. Right. Somehow, I’m quite certain the citizens have better things to do with their money during a recession than throw it away on a gangster mayor who is getting caught up in his own lies.

(This story is still in progress, but it appears highly likely that the mayor will be criminally charged by the prosecuting attorney, end up disbarred - he is an attorney, himself -, and could spend up to 15 years in prison for the coverup).

Today, I click on the television only to be greeted by the caption that the New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer has resigned after getting caught in a call-girl scandal that has basically made a mockery of his “straight arrow” image. He also will be faced with the prospect of criminal charges being filed against him, as well as possible disbarment (hmm. . . another lawyer).

In his situation, apparently Federal law enforcement officials placed a wire tap on the 48-year-old father of three’s phone line, thereby catching him off-guard in the act of repeatedly spending thousands of dollars on a call-girl at a fancy Washington Hotel.

Yeah. Right. (Currently scratching head with index finger).

Is it just me, or does anybody else seem to think that real life politics nowadays has begun to mimic the latest episode of the “Sex and the City” television drama series? I find myself thinking, “Jeez, I can hardly wait to see next week’s episode (not!)”.

When I was watching footage of the consequences of the latest political sex scandal erupt earlier today, I noted that the Governor’s wife was up there with him, publicly. Thinking back, I realized that’s exactly the place where I saw the Mayor of Detroit’s wife when his “shit hit the fan”, and further still, that’s exactly where we found Hillary when Billy Boy came clean.

I mentally asked myself WHY in the world these women were standing beside their men under such embarrassing, pathetic, criminal circumstances. Don’t get me wrong – I love my husband, too. But on the same note, I think if he were ever in the position of these men, where he was a prominent political figure, community leader, and role model for youth and citizens alike, the ONLY reason I’d ever be by his side under similar circumstances (on a stage publicly after incidents of sexual promiscuity and alleged felonies had taken place) would be so that I could have the perfect setup to haul off and blast him across the face with my slap where everyone could see - if for no other reason than the simple fact of the embarrassment he would have caused his family to suffer (as well as that of his supporters). I could NOT have just stood there like a puppet-on-a-string by his side acting like everything was alright. I’m just not "fake" enough to do that, and I honestly think I would buckle under the stress emotionally, and not be able to control my arm from arising all on its own . . . WHACK! (No, I do not have impulse control problems! I’d just be extremely pissed! What’s he gonna do – press charges for assault?! Yeah. Right. My husband, the filthy, lying, political criminal? Not likely. )

Thinking along these lines though got me wondering. . . how well do we really know our spouses or significant others?!?!?!?!?! I mean, we think we do. We believe we do. But I’m sure these women all thought they knew their spouses, too, and didn’t. . . not really.

What do you think???

You have lectured your husband with a cast iron frying pan in your hand before, haven't you Kimba? You sound more like the kind of woman who would latch on to a nut with a pair of visegrips in his sleep.(currently visualizing and laughing :-)

Kimba The White Lioness said...

No, actually. I would prefer to use my BARE HANDS to rip that nut off! I AM a martial artist, remember!

(only joking!) I'm actually a very NICE girl.

In reality, I've never had need to raise a hand (or frying pan) to my husband before. He's usually a very good boy! Smart man! (He knows I'll kick his a** need be!)

(joking again, of course!)


Nyte said...

Well the only thing i can say to that is LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And kimba i belive my wife would do the same to me.But i love her and i would never do her the way many men do their wifes. Me personally I belive if a man or a woman cheats they really had no love for the one their with to begin with.
And as far as polatitions go(note I cant spell) I pay about as much attetion to them as i pay to president Bush. LOL (sarcasiam intended)

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Glad you had a chuckle, Nyte!

And I agree with you - like you with Mrs. Nyte, my husband would NOT do me that way, either. He loves me too much. And believe me, he has good reason! He knows what a treasure I truly am! HA! (I can't believe I just said that! I must be overtired.)

Thanks for your comment, and say "hello" to the Mrs. for me!

theMOON said...

I never tolerate my husband to do such wrong acts!I love him, and I would always want to teach him lessons from his mistakes.I'm not so kind when my husband happen to mess up with me. LOL!
I'm not what they call "plastic"
If he's cheating on me I'm gonna shake his head off as if I'm saying WAAAAKEEE UPPP (Slap!slap!slap!)
Since I got married, I decided not to cheat.Because before with my past boyfriend, I used to.But its a lot different being married.I don't wanna embarrass my husband and my daughter.My husband used to be a playboy.I monitored him,till he surrendered his cellphone to me, he comes home early, gave up drinking alcoholic beverages.Coz I cant just sit and watch him doing dirty stuffs!Again, I would never tolerate that.

NyteGoddessBoo said...

Well right on Kimba gurly, you preach it and I will turn the page. (Smirky evil grin) You hit the nail right on the head. How degrading and humilating for families of cheaters to go thru such a disgraceful act of stupidity. Now about our hubbies- I gotsa saying here in my house- Nyte may rule the roost but NyteGoddessBoo rules the rooster. And we are lucky as well as blessed to have such devoted spouses. ( Cheeky grin) So my hat is off to faithful partners around the globe. Take care and look forward to reading more of your antics. Tootles

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Hello moon! It sounds like your hubby has begun to settle in to a contented lifestyle with you. And that's great. Having been married for many years, I know (and my husband would be the first to admit) that behind every GOOD man is the wife that has loved him, cared for him, and yes - sometimes chastised him into becoming the very BEST that he can be! (And God knows, they need all the help they can get!) Smiling. =)

Hello NGB! Thanks so much for your comment! I'm with you all the way!

KAK said...

"gotsa saying here in my house- Nyte may rule the roost but NyteGoddessBoo rules the rooster." ....Girls thank you for the smiles.......KAK

Sex + $$$ make the World Go Round!!

;)) Peace*

The_Mrs said...

I so agree.

Can't these wankers keep theirs in their pants? Geesh.

I agree with you wholeheartedly about the whole Tammy Wynette syndrome of "stand by your man". Yuck.

My husband knows I'd kick him in his twig and berries if he dared to something similar... and there's no way I'd stand in public view in any kind of support.

Sad thing is, we have elections and by the process of elimination, people like the aforementioned 'wankers' were the *best of the best*!?

Good lord I fear for our future.

: P

P.S. How's the head? You doin' alright?

What. the. hell.?

The_Mrs said...

Whoops. That 'what the hell' wasn't supposed to be there. I copied something and accidently pasted it in the comment box, then thought I'd deleted it all. Apparently I didn't.


*pulls bag over head in shame*

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Hey there ladyfriend (The_Mrs.)! Nice to SEE you!

Twig and berries! LOL! My husband and I are cracking up over that one! He just said to me, "Don't you EVAR refer to my genitalia (except he used MAN-SLANG for his cock and balls) as 'twig and berries'! You at least better call it my trunk and branches!" Ha! They are so sensitive about their PARTS, fearing other may view them as wee little things!

You crack me up!!

P.S. What. the. hell. ?! (No apology EVER necessary!)

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Mr Warhol - you are so right!!!


Peace back!
