Can Weiner Lick New Revelations?

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Can Weiner Lick New Revelations?

Postby Ned Flanders » Tue Jul 23, 2013 7:55 pm

The funniest part was watching "his Hillary" -- ironically Hillary's right hand gal, at this "press conference"

Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today he had another extended, raunchy online sexual relationship with a young woman — just months after resigning in disgrace from Congress in a sexting scandal.

But he won't be dropping out of the race. And his wife, Huma Abedin, is standing by him.

In a hasty scheduled joint press conference Abedin, Weiner said he will forge ahead with the campaign despite the latest sex scandal

Eh, New York has a history of electing people who have no business representing them. People get the government they deserve.

I found it not the least bit funny. My stomach churns whenever some political spouse steps forward to publicly declare her love and forgiveness. That was painful.

For Weiner to carry-on his activity for a year after his tearful goodbye from Congress is strange and pathetic beyond words. His political career is so done.

Consensual sex among adults bothers some more than others.

That was not the issue here.

BTW, there was one funny thing to come out of today's news: Weiner used the pen-name "Carlos Danger." I am looking forward to people referring to him as "Carlos" at press conferences and such.

Why? Please point out the factual inaccuracy in Henry's statement.

I don't think Mrs. Weiner consented.

NYT: Time for Weiner to pull out:

At some point, the full story of Anthony Weiner and his sexual relationships and texting habits will finally be told. In the meantime, the serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.

I remember Ned condemning Newt Gingrich and Mark Sanford for their affairs... no wait, they are Republicans, so Ned gave them a pass. But Clinton's penis and now Weiner's wiener are his obsessions.

I do, I do. But Carlos' life expectancy is probably out to 2050, so this will be a very tough bet to collect on.

If I were him, I would use his remaining bankroll to fund some sort of charity that he can operate. He ain't getting a private sector job.

Mr. Danger is not a particularly appealing fellow. He's really not much of a politician, he was appealing mostly as a fast-talking, wise-cracking TV interviewee. Ya, he was drawing 20% in a primary, but that was based on his huge edge in name recognition.

Carlos Danger is no Elliot Spitzer - a brilliant and talented man.

Yeah, I don't think I'll be here in 2050... 2015 is seeming a stretch this morning!

Weiner is smart and shrewd. He has name recognition (in more ways than one). He has many fans and supporters. He'll be a successful politician once again.

I don't know where you get "He ain't getting a private sector job," but that's crazy talk, with no basis in reality. Kink lives at the top. He'll collect back-pats from the executive class, not condemnation.

Weiner is smart but hardly shrewd. He was famously ineffective in Congress. Zero people skills. He is the anti-Bill Clinton.

Speaking of Clinton, Hillary must have been mortified by her assistant's appearance yesterday, Huma humiliated herself. Got to know when to hold, when to fold.

Alright everybody, let's keep focused here. This is a big day for Ned. He finally gets another Democratic cock to obsess over. Another firm, throbbing, rock-hard commie pinko member to fill his thoughts at all hours of the day and night. Right before he falls asleep: Weiner's Weiner. As soon as he wakes up: Klinton's Kock. Now he finally gets two throbbing johnsons to deal with. We all knew he's not the kind of guy for whom a single erection will suffice. Now he finally gets multiple socialist salamis to fill the holes of boredom that Rush and Bill can't seem to fill. Let's be happy for Ned.

Ned doesn't know the difference between irony and coincidence. Big fucking surprise there.

Cue a gif of a dog shitting itself in 3..2..
