Remember the nerdiest kid you ever knew in high school? He’s the one who never could get a date and people (girls especially) with compassionate hearts were always nice to him to make up for the bullies who tormented on him. He’s the one who always got picked last for teams in PE class. He worked the concession stand at prom because he had no date and he couldn’t dance for crap, anyway. He was president of the science club. He was scrawny, little and awkward. He did well academically, but he just never fit in with anyone. Teachers loved him. Coaches didn’t know he existed. He’s a fast talker who thinks he’s really witty, when he’s just really overcompensating for his lack of popularity.
In a nutshell, he is Richard Norvik (from Peggy Sue Got Married.)
What is the greatest aphrodisiac in the world?
Power, and money comes with power.
So here we have this scrawny, nerdy Anthony Weiner who never fit in with this allegedly big twitter following of pretty young ladies. It’s his revenge from his high school days, his vindication that he’s not such a goofy kid, after all. His lingering feelings of teenage inadequacy are soothed by all the pretty girls who follow him on twitter and a few young interns in congress who hang on his every word.
He’s reliving his high school years by (allegedly) tweeting what he thinks is a sexy picture of himself to some young college student.
Read this really enlightening story from the New Republic (well known for its leftwing bent) about the lecherous congressmen we elect and Weiner is one of the stars of the article.
