Anthony Weiner or a Saint?

Pages: 1 2

Sometimes I wonder if Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., is too nice for his own good.

An evil swine hacks into Weiner’s Twitter account and posts an embarrassing photo of spindly legs topped by a small erect penis draped in dingy gray briefs no male over the age of 11 would wear — and Anthony just wants to forget the whole thing!

Instead of angrily demanding an investigation like anyone else would, Anthony has gone all St. Francis of Assisi on us.

He doesn’t want an investigation! How big-hearted is that? Talk about a forgiving nature! He’s almost too magnanimous. I wish I had that kind of forbearance.

Maybe he’s ready to live and let live, but speaking as one of Anthony’s biggest Twitter followers, I am not. Otherwise, Weiner’s hacker is just going to go out and hack and hack again.

So while I admire Anthony’s selfless refusal to be “distracted” by this issue, I would urge him to reconsider.

Only a full and complete investigation will show that he had absolutely nothing to do with that humiliating photo of the tiny stub of a male organ sent to a 21-year-old coed from his Twitter address last Friday night.

Anthony needs to remember that hacking is a serious crime. In fact, there probably will have to be a federal investigation whether or not our gentle Anthony requests one.

Another example of Anthony’s amazing forbearance is how he has not retaliated against CNN for its malicious editing of Weiner’s press conference on Tuesday.

CNN obviously sabotaged the tape to make it look as if he was refusing to answer the simplest, most direct questions. (I confess I did not see the entire conference live; I was too busy sending private messages to the hundreds of college coeds I follow on Twitter, just like Anthony.)

Through sheer trickery, CNN made it appear as if Anthony kept lurching back to the same irrelevant story about a heckler in an audience of 45,000 people.

Anyone could see there was something off about the video because no matter what reporters asked him, CNN kept looping back to that clip of Anthony telling his long, pointless parable about a heckler in an audience and how he’d respond and then demanding that he be allowed to finish, when he obviously had already finished.

This falsely suggested that he was stonewalling reporters. Perhaps the CNN tape was hacked, too.

It’s time for Anthony to stand up for himself, if you’ll pardon the expres — Hey, wait a minute! Now my column is being hacked!!! — and demand an investigation of both the hacker and CNN.

You don’t need to apologize for anything, congressman. Your only problem is, you’re just too damn nice.

But knowing Anthony, he’ll probably forgive CNN. There’s a reason why, year in and year out, Anthony Weiner has been voted Congress’ most forgiving person.

I try to be a good Christian, but it took Anthony Weiner to show me what true mercy is. I salute you, congressman! …

The preceding several paragraphs are what we call “irony,” i.e. saying one thing while meaning the opposite.

    Of course he posted the photo…anyone with two braincells to rub together knows he did it.

    How can Wiener, the most vindictive and ruthless living member of the House not want to know who the hacker is? Especially since it may prove the hacker is:

    A homophobic, fly-over country Tea-bagger that shows up at Congressional townhall meetings wearing a firearm? Who is also a filthy, bitter-clinger rube who got lucky guessing and hacking his Twitter sign-in information? How can he deny himself the pleasure of not knowing if the Tea Party Express or a 9/12 organization is behind this?

    The only explanation is that this is the doing of Wiener’s own hand…… every applicable way.

    I know a weaner when I see one, Mr. Wiener, and that's no weaner, that's a tweaner.

    • logdon

      An itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, yellow, whining, Wiener's weaner?

    Tony D. Weiner is the love child of former Speaker Pelosi and Senator Chuck (the Kapo) Schumer. Pelosi was performing a Lewinski on Schumer, and nine months later, Tony emerged from Schumers rear. That's either the method by which liberals reproduce, or Chuck was just showing Tony a good time.

    I hate to say this, but I am informed by the fairer sex that sometimes, size does matter.

    It seems there are many facets to this Weiner … I used to think this obnoxious, little man was a devoted political hack who took on the responsibility of being a duplicitous beard for Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's gal pal, or that he was simply one of the attack dogs who went after Glenn Beck for his Goldline ads; but, after Weinergate, I now see there is more slime to this rascally opossum than his immersion in the swamp of dirty politics. If Weiner had been a conservative Republican, an investigation into the supposed hacking of his Twitter account would have been demanded. Why is he getting off with a few superficial press conferences that served to shed light on nothing but his "prickly" attitude?

    Thou dost besmirch the opossum kingdom…

    Let this story die a quick death….it's a bore already.

  • dirtybird

    Anyone who has seen the photo will agree that Anthony's weiner is really a small story. His sketchy behavior & cover-up is the larger story. For Anthony's sake, let's hope that an investigation gets to the bottom of this.

     The real test will be if he gets re-elected by his constituents after all the deceitfulness.

  • alexander

    our elected ones quickly become gods – in their minds – and, having nothing to do, they go after women…if he were a Repub., our MSM (a.k.a. red rags) would already had eaten him alive.

    who will be elected as NYC mayor in 2013! and the
    "Winner is….LONG JOHN……..WEINER!?"

    Barney Frank is saying, "Even I wouldn't DO that wiener!"

    I can't criticize.

    Sometimes, as I am surfing through my carefully prepared list of social media college coeds, I too stand tall and salute this great country.

    Admittedly, I do not bend to the left, but I would be lying if I told you that I did not let Mr. Weiner make the occasional decision for me. True, Mr. Weiner's decisions are usually appalling (in retrospect), but then, why else would he be there, if not to lead – if not to go first, to bravely chart a course. To accidentally send an embarrassing picture to 45,000 people instead of one – to basically make the mother of all "reply all" mistakes – surely this is only one incident in the great human history of being led by Mr. Weiner. He'll eventually get us there!

    So – Continue on, Mr. Weiner! Pretend what you need to! Say what you need to! Because you, congressman, are surely the biggest Weiner our country has to offer.

    PS. Is your wife buying any of this?

    If the GOP can't force the resignation of the racist Attorney General Holder who runs his office with racist policies not unlike those of the National Socialists in early Twentieth Century, no way the GOP will be able to force Weiner out of office.

    It merely confirms what I already knew – the fellow is a total jerk.
