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.

Though we adore men individually,
We agree that as a group, they're rather stuuuuu- pid!
Women prolly cheat as much as men. Women want love and emotion. Men are more visceral...... they just want sex.
The ones who let their pee pee run their lives are... John Edwards is the poster child for that...
Men are definitely stupid — and the proof of that is this: we let the women have the vote.
‘stupid’ would of been a compliment coming from my ex!
Frida hasn’t read about the epidemic of female teachers with their underage students?

God gave men brains and penises but only enough blood to operate one at a time.
The snake in the garden twisted Gods word and Eve took a bit of the fruit of knowledge. Eve fell for just words. Then she stood in front of Adam naked and talked him into falling.

The male human animal has not evolved beyond that instinctive drive to respond to attractive females that make themselves available.
