An Abstinence Video By a Politician and His Mistress


U.S. Congressman Mark Souder announced his resignation today after admitting that he’d had an affair with a woman whom Fox News identified as Tracy Jackson, one of his staffers. Justin Elliott discovered that one of the videos on the soon-to-be-ex-Congressman’s channel was a plea for abstinence education, done in the time-honoured fake interview format. The person interviewing him about the importance of abstinence? Tracy Jackson, one of his staffers.

I don’t really know what to add to that. It’s just fun.

  1. It's all quite tidy of him.

  2. Outstanding.

  3. There's no hypocrite like a sanctimonious hypocrite.

  4. By the end of this decade Canadian high schools and universities will no longer conduct tests and exams. They will be replaced by an interview with the instructor at semester's end in which the student will be challenged to point to two marginally if at all related entities in the universe and find them "interesting" or "ironic" or "hypocritical".

    The name "Canada" will be changed to "California" since the average Canadian, after watching forty seven hours of American television per week, sincerely believes he lives there and that he can rock his broccoli-powered rollerblades to work on the boardwalk, in Peterborough, in January. The House of Commons will just stop meeting, nobody will notice, so transfixed these American wannabes are on America and American politics.

    • I'm sure a Canadian remake of that video is forthcoming.

  5. She's pretty cute but him? I guess power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

    Also love the compassion for the person suffering frm AIDS (no matter how he contracted it).

  6. Republican I assume?

    • Yep. Dems don't generally have to resign over stuff like this.

  7. It's sort of disturbing how much younger and better looking she is than him.

    If the Congressman weren't Miss Jackson's boss would he ever be able to pull her? I doubt it.
