NUDE SWIM-NO BIG DEAL
Republican Kevin Yoder, congressman from Kansas, apologized for taking a quick skinny dip into the Sea of Galilee while on a congressional trip last year. That he apologized is an honorable gesture, but unnecessary.
A quick and spontaneous jump into the sea, especially in a hot climate is perfectly fine. And if you are with friends or family and you dip naturale d'Au, why should anyone care?
A few moralistic bloggers have snorted as to how disgusting that is for an American congressman. Really? Why would that be? We came into this world naked. I understand why some of us may be embarrassed about how our bodies have turned out, but this was not naked beach volleyball. It was a dip into the ocean and the nudity was brief, long enough to immerse. I'd worry more about those who entered the sea, in clothing. And for those snooty and condescending bloggers, one of whom I heard interviewed on NPR, I suggest you read of some of Benjamin Franklin's behavior, when serving as a US Representative in France. I don't think his "cavorting" affected his impact on human history.
A dip into the sea with friends is no problem, no big deal, and none of your business. Leave the guy alone on this. Attack his politics and beliefs if you like, but not a skinny dip.
NOW, THIS CONGRESSMAN IS AN IDIOT
Todd Akin of Missouri should be an embarrassment to
to all Republicans, in fact to all males anywhere on the
political spectrum. There is no defense for his comments on rape. His party should run him out of sight. If he's not an idiot, he's just plain stupid.
