Well, She Is a Democrat, After All

The first thing I learned about Sydney Leathers — back in those prim and proper days of a week ago, when it was considered shocking to name her, as she was presumed to be the helpless young victim of Anthony Weiner’s perverted predation — was that she had worked as a field coordinator for President Obama’s re-election campaign.

Once I knew that, I thought, “Oh, give me a break.”

Readers may forget that, two months after I first arrived in D.C., the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted and, as the new guy on the national desk, I received a journalistic baptism by fire during the mad scramble of the Washington press corps that a major sex scandal produces. And watching the way the media reacted to Bill Clinton’s embarrassment (collectively donning Nina Burleigh’s “presidential knee pads,” as it were), I concluded that all liberal women are sluts.

Except the lesbians, maybe. Probably some of the more monogamous of those are closet Republicans, with secret urges of decency they hide from their more “progressive” LGBT friends.

Anyway, I woke this morning and saw Donald Douglas’s headline, “Weiner Sexting Partner Sydney Leathers Boasts of Milking ‘Sugar Daddies’ for Thousands,” and thought: “Of course she did.”

Sydney Leathers is a tattooed harlot who hired herself out to old creeps. What other kind of 22-year-old could (a) work for the Obama campaign, and (b)  think she was in love with Anthony Weiner? And yet we are supposed to pretend to be surprised by this, when Sydney Leathers was only doing what all liberals girls do, and Anthony Weiner was only doing what all Democrats do, i.e., cheating and lying:

‘So Anthony Weiner and I talked all day and every day for months,’ she wrote.
‘And someone found out somehow and tried to blackmail me with it. I’m like…terrified this will come out since he’s running for mayor.’

Could I say more? I could, and will. But for now, I recommend again my American Spectator column, “The Pervert Party.”

UPDATE: Your daughter might be a liberal if . . .

    TMZ has a picture of her with an exec at Vivid – the porn company. She was getting in his car. First a hooker, then a porn star.

    Never eat at low tide.

    Wiktionary list several possible origins for the word…

    1) A blend of skeevy and rank

    2) A blend of scold and brank [the latter, it seems, is a Middle English]

    3) A Northern English slang word meaning ‘The act of cheating a person through disloyal and selfish means with no shame to use deception in the process (most commonly to a known associate or friend)’.

    It is also the name of a Jamaican dance that is performed to Ska music.

    It is certainly, as Animal comments, onomatopoeic.
