1. It seems that Representative James Clyburn, the third-ranking House Democrat, recently told a C-Span caller that “sexting” is an important tool for organizing voters.  Clyburn seemed to confuse basic “texting” with “sexting” – which involves sending sexual messages or photos during a Labor Day weekend appearance on C-Span to promote his new memoir.  Clyburn, 74, told an anguished caller that Americans concerned about the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin shootings should employ Twitter, Facebook, and “sexting” to organize.
    “Use the tools that we have,” he encouraged the woman.  “We’ve got great tools to communicate about everything else.  We can, uh, text.  Uh, what do we call it?  Sexting.  Let’s do some voting, uh, uh, organizing over the internet.  We’ve got the tools.  Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had, uh,  in 2012 in November.”
    With all of the “uh’s” at that particular part of the conversation, it seems that Clyburn knew the difference; but, as he stated, he used the two exchanged words to  gain the audience’s attention.  Sexting is a wake-up call- word, ask former Congressman Anthony Weiner – who also talked about texting and sexting!
    The definition of texting is the process of sending and receiving brief messages using a cellular phone or similar handheld device.
    The definition of sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit photos, images, text or emails by using a cell phone, or other mobile device.
    It sounds like Clyburn is trying to set up a hot time in an old town called Washington, D.C.  It is strange that he did not mention “viagra.”  Did I miss that part?  He did talk about all of those old tools and massive movements (the Black Panthers again with their clubs)?
