Here’s another news appearance from my new youtube channel. I chat about the importance (or lack thereof) of a possible ratings downgrade for the United States government.

You’ll see that I’m not overly impressed by Moody’s and the rest of the rating agencies.

I’m a bit disappointed in the selection of jokes I’ve seen about Weinergate. One can only wonder if they’re going easy on him (and John Edwards) because of bias.

But several of these are worth a chuckle.

From Conan:

    Democrats and Republicans are calling for Congressman Anthony Weiner to resign. Late night comedians are asking him to hang in there.

    The women who Weiner communicated with were a college student, a single mom, a blackjack dealer, and a porn star. Or, as we call that here in Los Angeles, the circle of life.

    Comedy people sit around for years hoping for a scandal called “Weinergate.” And then it happens.

    Fifty-one percent of New York voters think Weiner should keep his seat. The other 49 percent think he should disinfect it.

    It turns out that one of the women Congressman Anthony Weiner was communicating with was a porn star. When asked how it was possible to get involved with someone in such a sleazy business, the porn star said, “I don’t know.”

From Letterman:

    There’s a word for people that take pictures of their privates and send them out: “stupid.”

    If Weiner resigns, they’re already talking about replacing him with Ashton Kutcher.

From Kimmel:

    There’s a heat wave over half of the country. It got so hot in New York, a congressman took off his pants and tweeted a picture of himself.

    Many of Anthony Weiner’s Democratic colleagues are calling for him to resign to preserve his dignity, but that ship sailed a long time ago.

From Leno:

    Congressman Weiner has admitted that he did carry on explicit online relationships with six different women. Well, he thought they were women. Turns out three were woman, one was a guy pretending to be a woman, and the other two were congressmen.

From Fallon:

    Lawmakers here in New York have proposed a new program to teach teenagers about the dangers of sexting. Seriously? How about a program to teach New York lawmakers about the dangers of sexting?
