Apparently there are now pictures of Weiner flexing his pecs, and the stooges at Big Government claim he was sending all sorts of pics to some other female.
And a big middle finger from your host to everyone (I’m looking at you, clown) who got all worked up because I said “It wouldn’t surprise me if Weiner was this stupid.” I think you’d have to be a fool to trust Breitbart and company at their word, but you have to be a bigger one to be surprised that someone in Congress would act recklessly. We still don’t know what the story is completely here, but things look a lot worse for Weiner today.
*** Update ***
Lot of amusing stuff here in the comments. I’m particularly amused by the folks who think I want Weiner taken down- apparently they missed all the glowing posts about Weiner from me and everyone else.
Second, I love the fact that I am being accused of binary thinking. How so? There are multiple things that could be in play here. We don’t know what they are. Hell, for all we know, Weiner could have known that they were after him, and this is all an elaborate gotcha on his part. I doubt it, but it is a possibility. Right now, though, on top of all of his evasive non-answers, I’d say the best possibility is he meant to DM that girl ten days ago, fucked up, and we are where we are. But it could all be a setup, too. Who knows? None of that means I want him to get in trouble or think he should. I like the guy, and I don’t care what people do in their off time.
But see, I am a member of the reality-based community. What I think or want doesn’t matter- what does matter is that if Weiner was sexting a bunch of women, taking pics of his junk, and what not, he will go down. Not because I want him to, but that is how our country rolls. And more likely than not, some of the people that are going to help stick the shiv in are people with a (D) after their names, either wanting revenge, wanting to knock him out of the Mayor’s race, etc.
Third, when I say it looks worse for Weiner, I’m not gleeful or happy, I just mean “it looks worse for Weiner.” I’d love to have his back. I’d love to offer a counter-narrative. But I’ve got nothing other than Weiner telling everyone it was just a prank and he wants to move on. If I had something that was firm, I’d roll with it, But I’ve got nothing other than the fact he won’t go to authorities and that Andrew Breitbart is a dick. And today, with all the new photographs and the new bs being thrown out by Breitbart, it is going to only whip up the media into a bigger lather. In other words, things look worse today for Weiner.
Finally, the notion that I am “flogging” this story is absurd. A couple brief mentions and that is it- it’s almost like you clowns haven’t turned on the news or read a newspaper in the past week. The lead story doesn’t start “According to sources close to John Cole, Anthony Weiner…” I have no role in this story whatsoever. Again, I’m just acknowledging reality. The story is out there. It has legs. Screaming at me is not going to change anything.
