Dumbass Pitches

With Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) facing fire over his alleged use of hookers these days, it reminds me what a truly screwed up place Washington is. Sure, people have affairs all over the world, but no one does it quite as spectacularly as we do. The way Menendez was flying all over the planet looking for some tush makes your average indiscretion look vanilla.

Why do these men in power go through such extreme lengths to chase tail? To answer this question, I had to  look no further than my inbox. Each week, we get hit with some pretty dumbass ideas of guests to interview and books to review. While we could just delete them and put the sender in a spam folder, we’d rather share them with you.

This week, we have a particularly timely pitch.

It comes from Dr. Bart Rossi, “Nationally Renowned Political Psychologist.” He’s here to capitalize on the personal tragedy offer his advice on why politicians do the deed on such a grand level. He promises to answer the following questions:

  • Why are men in power so eager to push the limits of their power?
  • Does being in politics breed bad behavior?
  • What makes men cheat?
Good luck answering all those questions, Doc. If you’d like to make an appointment to visit with this doctor, you can check out his website. Of course, he might make a house call to Sen. Menendez. They’re both residents of New Jersey.
