Internet Douchebag Would Like a Blowjob, a Steak & a Senate Seat

New York Republicans who would like to unseat Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand thought they'd found their knight in wire-rimmed armor in entrepreneur Marc Cenedella. He had the youth, the vigor, the tough talk... the bizarre blog that trafficked in sexism, drug references, and unfunny jokes about Omarosa's wearing a banana hammock.

Cenedella is the founder of job search website theladders.com. Bored job seekers on The Ladders could click over to theladders.com/rock to find what any reasonable person would conclude was a blog run by the founder himself. The page featured banner containing the image of Cenedella crossing his arms while wearing a blazer, smiling confidently like a realtor who had the perfect 1 bedroom condo for you in Fort Lauderdale, or a stock photo model in an ad for Lipitor. A tagline announced to visitors that the page was "the personal blog of Marc Cenedella, CEO and founder of The Ladders." Pretty standard "cheesy rich guy starts a blog" territory here.

But then shit gets obnoxious.

According to the New York Times, who were tipped off to the contents of Cenedella's personal mind jizz repository, the contents of the blog ranged from mildly tacky to outright sexist. In one post, he invited men and women to participate in March 14's "Steak and a Blow Job" celebration, which, according to people from my hometown who I no longer talk to but who are my friends on Facebook, is supposed to be the men's Valentine's Day (also, didn't realize how much dudes like it when their dick smells like meat drippings and A-1!)

To be fair, there's nothing wrong with enjoying a good hunk of steak, and if there's anyone who loves blow jobs, it's successful politicians. But he didn't stop there. He also posted about what makes a girl "sexy" versus what makes a girl "skanky," dating advice for feminine women, and a link to a website about men taking multiple wives in the Bible along with positive UP TOP BRO AMIRITE MOAR WIVES type commentary from the entrepreneur.

When someone from the Times contacted the campaign, the site was immediately disabled, and a spokesperson for Cenedella denied that he'd ever had anything to do with the site that operated on his domain and that held itself out to be "the personal blog of Marc Cenedella." What say you now, confidently grinning businessman?

I love an internet dick joke just as much as the next person, but I'm not running for elected office (thank fucking god). These trespasses of taste don't make Cenedella a bad person or an incompetent politician or businessman on their own, but they do make him tacky and a pretty obvious liar, two traits that are unbecoming in both uncles and Senators. Plus, can you imagine a man who is afraid of the New York Times being grilled by Kirsten Gillibrand in a debate? She'd eat him alive.
