Are men stupid? How else can we explain the endless parade of otherwise successful individuals, who by all appearances seem intelligent and competent, and yet risk destroying their careers and their personal lives over the chance to have a sexual escapade?
John Edwards crashing from the heights of promise to infamy, from presidential candidate to defendant in a trial after a secret affair; Secret Service agents ending their careers in disgrace over dalliances with prostitutes in Colombia, all join that long procession of men who managed to self-destruct, pulling a pin on the grenade of their careers and perhaps their personal lives for the sake of a little fun.
The pageant of legacy-killing misjudgment includes a president, several might-have-been presidents, a few governors, a World Bank director, a former Dutch prime minister, an Israeli president and one of the top golfers of all time. And that is only a partial list.
How to explain it?
The question has baffled women, mostly, since biblical times.
Perhaps the Secret Service agents thought their behavior, if discovered, would raise no eyebrows. But the stupidity was in evidence when one of the agents, who had earlier "protected" Sarah Palin, posted on Facebook that he was "checking her out." Sounds like the claim of a 13-year-old boy. And the decision to post the comment displays the common sense of an 8-year-old.
But that level of maturity and judgment shines compared to the decision of, say President BillClinton, who risked his presidency to have an affair with Monica Lewinsky, and then lied about it repeatedly.
A brilliant man, everyone said about the president, but also one of only two presidents in American history impeached.
The Clinton experience almost numbed us to the epidemic scale of the problem. Over and over we hear stories that defy belief.

“Then she stood in front of Adam naked and talked him into falling.”
They were both already naked “and and were not ashamed” (Genesis 2:25). After Adam sinned, THEN the consequences of shame and distortion of the sex drive.
Think of an invention. Any invention. Who do you think invented it? Was it a feminist womyn’s studies major? Was it a professor of ethnic studies or Marxist philosophy? Or was it a white or Asian man?
What idiot asked that question?
The second one is worth checking out. :)

The article is written by a woman.
By her nature, she cannot understand.
Because she is not a male, she will -never- understand.
Such is the gender gap...
Anybody that voted for Obama or Romney is dumb as a brick.

Certainly. Or the species would not continue.
Frida appears, from the photo, to be a dyke. There’s probably some penis envy haunting her.
Can you imagine what a different country this would be...
And before women readers get all outraged and look down their noses at us men, I'll even answer the next question:
Because it works!!! Yes, many of you fall for it!! If you didn't, we wouldn't do it, and would move on to something else that worked.
But women were more likely to vote for Obama in 2008 than men were, and are more likely to vote for him again this year.
So the stupidity of men is not across-the-board.
Between Bill and Monica, one could easily argue she was the stupid one...he’s a Dem Party rockstar...she’ll be forever known as his disposable receptacle.
Think of an invention. Any invention. Who do you think invented it?
You mean like the circular saw, liquid paper (White-Out), COBOL, square-bottomed paper bags (well, the machine that produced them). zig-zag sewing machine, dishwasher, windshield washer, kevlar and a new broad spectrum navigation system, not to mention all kinds of things in the medical field? All invented by women, the nav system by actress Hedy Lamar.
See my tag line.....

Interesting. A system to navigate a spectrum of broads. Hmmmm... I want one!
