Weinergate: That's was fun

Everyone knew from the get go this guys saw lying. Politicians circled the wagons when they should have grabbed their pitchforks.

Anatomy of a Scandal
How Anthony Weiner and John Edwards lost control of their private parts.
By Christopher Hitchens


Hilarious. Now the speaker is calling for an ethics probe.


Really what are these people up to? First when you're a public figure why are you out there contacting women? If you're done having kids why not get your nuts cut (e.g. Edwards & Arnold). Why is Weiner doing his own tweets? You'd think some PR firm would be calculating what tweet should be twitted for this twit.

I think Weiner is a smart guy always with healthy dose of sanctimony. We'll see if he still has a job when the next election comes.

And...defeaning silence from the left. This was an interesting one to say the least. A few thoughts:

First, people have affairs and what not, but really you used SOCAIL MEDIA...as a sitting, married congressmen? That has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

Secondly, yesterdays double-press conference was bizarre, wasn't it? Andrew Breitbart took over Weiner's scheduled conference before Weiner himself got there. He was grilled on his "involvement" and made it clear that he didn't publish the story until Weiner claimed he had been hacked. I happened to catch him speak, and I enjoyed it. He was accused of blackmail at one point, and pretty much crushed those that followed that line of questioning.

Third: I know people lie "to protect their families." But as I suspect many do, I have a little trouble with this kind of lying. He even had what amounted to a press day at his office where he conducted interviews and lied in premeditated fashion. He conducted multiple personal interviews where he lied to the interviewer's faces! I don't know...am I supposed to believe he only lied about this? To me, the way he did this exceeded Clinton's "massaged" interviews and single false statement to the nation. this guy met with people one-on-one and lied to their faces. I don't see how the press (or anyone) will ever believe him about anything again.

Fourth, I caught a few moments of Breitbart being interviewed this morning. He was asked about whether or not he thought Weiner should resign. He didn't really say (as he refused to yesterday), but he did say something I agree with (paraphrased). "[If someone out there has explicit photos of him, he's going to want to keep that under wraps. Look at the lengths he went to last week to keep his posture and standing. It's not implausible that in this compromising position, he could be asked for money or political considerations to maintain his position. Maybe someone wants him to alter a bill or pay $100,000 or what not...he's in a very compromised position.]"

Lastly, the double-standard here is pretty blatant. Rep. Lee of NY has a photo with his shirt off as he responded to a Craigslist ad, and he resigns basically before the story even comes out. The Ween-Man had electronic relationships for several years, with explicit details that came out (chats and photos and what not)...but he vows to stay in office. When Democrats cheat, they get sympathy and their behavior is excused. But Republicans? They resign in shame. And that's the expectation the media has set up. Pathetic.

Pretty surprising Weiner kept up with this stuff even after Lee got caught. Reminds me I gotta go check the FB posts of my DNC cheerleader friend. He was quick to post about Lee but I'm sure has nothing to say about Weiner.

Weiner was pretty fucking stupid throughout this whole mess. And he was doubly wrong to double down and claim to be hacked. It's even more sad because he's a damn good congressman.

THE GENTLEMAN IS CORRECT IN ADMITTING TO THE COCKSHOT.

I was waiting to see how it played out. It didn't look good. It was also plausible that there were some shenanigans. Turns out the congressman doubled down on stupid. I've lost a great deal of respect for a guy who I very much liked. He fought hard for the 9/11 first responders bill when the Republicans were dead set against it.

It's a play on one of Weiner's famous statements in congress during his passionate plea for congress to pass the 9/11 first responders bill. Can you ever laugh at anything? You are such a killjoy.

Even then, Newt didn't break any laws and I wouldn't have called for him to have to step down either.

Ultimately, it's up to Weiner's constituents if they still want him to represent them.

That statement made it through the social media, youtube, and news channel circuits at the time. It was pretty widespread. You must live in a cave.

I want to say, I don't live in a cave and I have not heard that statement. My life does not revolve around politics. However, I do think that the personal jab by MJ was a bit rude, if not out of step with the rest of this forum.

Oh, stay please. You know those who are the most homophobic are really just hiding something. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with the way they truly are deep down on the inside. There's just something wrong with a society who treats them so terribly.

OK. I'm not afraid of homosexuals...but whatever. Don't let any facts get in the way of your assumptions about and caricatures of me.

Just figured that you were getting a little excited and probably wanted some time alone. I would offer the same courtesy to someone starting to go on about Sarah Palin's breasts (or whatever).

Was arnold found with cash in his freezer? Or a low interests loan from a mortgage bank? Or a bailout for his friends bank? Maybe his yacht was docked where it would be tax free? Oh no wait he was found in bed with a gay Israeli army officer (ret). Oh wait no his lover turned up missing before her flight and his bizarre actions were the subject of intense investigations? No no no. He got his lover pregnant (yes he did do that) while his wife was on her death bed (no he didn't do that) then used political contributions as hush money? I know I know! He used a rent stabilized apartment for his office and is a tax cheat! He threw a hissy fit when his GS5 wasn't at the airport for him to use?

If Weiner was so smart why did he make a complete ass out of himself by sexting and tweeting those dumb messages to these women.His job of congressman is I think is gone pretty soon and perhaps his marriage.

See? Exactly what I'm talking about. Chris Lee had to resign immediately. Weiner gets to stay because...well, because it's different. He's a Democrat.

Oh, and I wouldn't be so sure about not breaking laws. One of the women claims she talked to him on a Congressional phone. This is a violation of House rules in the least.

Also, consider this: Weiner is now in a compromised position. What would he do to prevent more of this from leaking out? He's also conducted a Lying Tour. This wasn't just a "I did not have sex with that woman" moment. He was interviewed one-on-one, multiple times. He lied to the reporter's faces. It was only when his story fell apart that he bailed. So tell me, why would ANYONE ever trust him again...on anything?

I don't want him to resign. Damaged goods staying in office involving pics of a guy named Weiner sending pics of his privates is just the gift that keeps giving. If he resigns he might go away. I want to be able to be able to joke about this and use it to tar the Democratic party for a couple decades at least.

Have you heard about the Weiner led get out the vote effort? It's coming up a bit short. It's appeal is wide but it's reach is narrow. They've gotten to the tip of the problem, but their solution doesn't hit the spot.

Seriously. People want me to give this up?!? Never. He'll probably recover from this scandal much like how he got into office, by telling everyone they need to hate on black people. It's what the Democratic party specializes in so really, why expect a change.

You have two good points there. Maybe he should stay. I don't think he will though. Once it's confirmed he used House resources for communication, he's done.

He would be done if he were a Republican but Democrats have no morals and hence no real shame to call upon. They know they manipulate people to selfishly get what they want under the pretense of helping their fellow man. It is the ultimate sham at the root and thus it can't be made worse.

Did you see the pictures of his wife or read about her? She's gorgeous, well educated, well placed and well employed. She's twelve years younger than him and they've been married less than a year. It's pretty clear you couldn't find a better woman to shit all over.
