The U.S. capital for marital cheaters? Washington D.C.

Possibly, this isn’t a surprise to you, but Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich may have been more normal than we thought – by Washington, D.C. standards, anyway. From the Post:

[A]ccording to adultery Web site Ashleymadison.com… the District is home to nearly 38,000 registered users. The site also named Washington the place with the highest per capita membership in its 13-million-strong user base.

“Simply put, the more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are, and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage,” said Noel Biderman, CEO of Avid Life Media, which owns Ashley Madison, in a statement.

We have heard talk that a certain Georgia congressman, in lectures to new freshmen, warns them that “nothing good happens here after 10 p.m.” He might want to expand his audience.

I’m movin’ to DC. There has to be a lot of “unsatisfied” wives there needin’ some TLC. I’m not exactly experienced in dating married women but it has to be a lot cheaper than dating these single Georgia women… especially since their hubbies are so “successful”… “Want to get back at your husband? Wow, he’d be really pissed if you bought me a Porsche!”

Simply put it is not about having success…it is MORE about those who have more Power and Influence on those around them, that are more prone to this type of behavior.

Yeah, but it’s only bad if a Democrat does it. The majority of republicans, evangelicals in particular, have apparently forgiven Newt for his lifetime of serial adultery.

Now maybe they can forgive JFK, after all, the man’s been dead for 50 years! But, republicans still pull Kennedy out of their uh, uh, hats every time some GOP fornicator is in the news like Newt or Herman Cain.

Heh… It’s like that children’s book, Everybody you-know-whats. I don’t make it my business what other people do behind closed doors.

However, I will state once again for the record:
NO. If you’re married, I am NOT interested in your needs, wants, feelings, or fet-ishes. There is another human being legally obligated to care, and therefore I DO NOT. Good grief!

Why select marital – wouldn’t be just as appropriate to say US Capital for (fill in any blank)______________ cheaters?

When you have a 10 to 1 ratio, GOP to Dem, allows Dixiecrats to say Liberals do it too.

roughrider,

Maybe that was why ole’ noots was always so hostile to President Clinton.
Noots had to come off the hip, but all the President had to do was smile.

Newt and the rest of the republican canditates except for Ron Paul seem to not find enough women here. They want to go to war and topple more governements, I believe to go after their women. hahaha

Not surprise as the place is full of 90% of the MEN thinking that America belongs to them and they have the b….s to talk about womens issues. Now I see why some good successful medical doctors turn politicians love Washington DC so much.

Washington DC!!!! Big government doing a number on the US taxpayer. What justifies the salaries that they vote to themselves? Or, worse yet, the salaries private corps pay them because of what they did while they were in office. Why is criminal behavior legal in DC? Get elected and make Millions $$$! We need to have more accountability by elected individuals.

They have been unfaithful to the voters why not there spouses. I bet call girls in DC know more about Iran than our Congressman. Why do you think our Congressmen can’t stop super pacs. It’s to get re-elected so they won’t have to leave there mistresses and boy toys.

Libertarian, comparing the ATL to DC in terms of a “party central” is tantamount to journeying to the land of the Big Chicken in search of the Marietta Ballet.

Washington, DC! Now I can get me a pair of them fancy overalls.
