Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House – and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important – his and his family’s well-being.”
Well, I’d say his days are numbered. And personally, I hate to see him out of office. I think he’d be a real gift to the Republicans for the next 18 months. Pelosi will be the next one to issue a statement and by Sunday night, he’ll have resigned – or at least I’m betting so.
And more at Mediaite.com from Andrew Breitbart on Fox and Friends today. I just don’t see how he can make it through the weekend … or through his marriage, for that matter.
Seriously, even democrats have to agree that trolling the internet for underage girls is unacceptable and illegal.
In the words of some late night host, this weiner story is like a gift that keeps on giving. It just gets better and better.
If you watched his press conference (the one where Breitbart was the opening act) he said he couldn’t say with “certitude” if any of the females he tweeted with were all adults. He had to take those people at their words, he said.
Delaware police have questioned a young (17 year old) lady regarding any online contacts she might have had with the great and honorable congressman.
It’s the political class doing all this relentless “work for the American people” that’s turned this country into the brokest nation in the history of the planet, killed the American Dream and left the American people headed for a future poised somewhere between the Weimar Republic and Mad Max. So, if it’s a choice between politicians getting back to work for the American people or Tweeting their privates round the planet, I say, Tweet on, MacDuff. Tough on our young college ladies. But, as Queen Victoria advised her daughter on her wedding night, lie back and think of England. Download and think of America.
I owe a big thank you to Weiner for giving me the comic relief I’ve needed. Times are hard for so many of us and the daily (almost hourly) news is not good so, a little Weiner levity has been great. Everyone from Andrew Klavan to Andrew Breitbart provided some great laughs and one liners. I mean seriously, how can you pair any adjective with the name Wiener and it not be funny?
I also owe a thanks to the White House (and Drudge) for publishing the German state dinner menu:
STATE DINNER MENU DONE ON BUDGET:
White House Honey Gastrique
Tuna Tartare with Rye Crisps
Pickled Young Carrots and Mustard Oil
Spring Pea Salad
Shaved Ham and Ginger Snaps
With Maryland Crab Ravioli
Wild Ramp Puree
Golden Raisins and Topfen

I had to Wiki half this menu (or ask Jane who’s a food network fan) because I’m just not a cuisine expert. (She knew what Gastrique is. I thought it might be cow or sheep stomach. HA! Martha Stewart would be slapping me with her rubber spatula for that!)
Crock pot roast beef and baked potatoes is a fancy meal at our house. I have to wonder who’s budget this WH menu was based on. Petite filet (one thing on the menu I know about) is kinda pricey and a once a year treat for me. In fact, as a family tradition, we vote every year about our Christmas dinner and more times than not, we vote for steak (Porterhouse, T-bone or filet) because it’s such a rarity for us. And as a person with an Italian heritage, I can tell you crab ravioli is not something I’m familiar with. But it does sound good.
All in all, this is not a menu that is friendly to MY budget. But it was semi-entertaining to discuss and research the menu items.
And again, all this frivolity in the news distracted me from some of the more unpleasant (1/3 of all employees will lose their employer-based health care) and scary (reports that Iran could have nukes in less than 6 months – what’s more scary than that?) news reports. Not that Weiner’s sexy (insert surprised emoticon here) online chat, isn’t news worthy – it is. But it was also the more fun times I’ve had reading online.
The surreal press conference that Weiner called on Monday when Brietbart upstaged him, was the BEST television since the debut of the trampoline bear on the Fox Report. It was stunningly hilarious and at the same time, made me feel proud of being a Breitbart fan. Seeing him at Weiner’s podium calling out the so-called “journalists” for being duplicitous and disingenuous (fancy words for being jerkweeds) was absolutely priceless!
I’ve been online for a long time and one thing I have learned is that there is only one type of man who posts penis pictures of himself: the kind of nerdy, inadequate, trying-to0-hard man that Weiner is. Don’t ask me how I know this because I’m not telling (insert red-faced emoticon here) and I’ve used no tax dollars in this research so I owe no one an explanation.
But in that regard, Weiner and his weiner are pathetic. I almost feel bad about laughing at his online sexcapades because I knew men (boys) like him in high school and college. He has some serious feelings of inadequacy that only his online braggadocio can seem to quash.
But on the upside for me at least, we’ve not heard the last of Anthony’s Weinergate.
And okay, I admit it, my life is pretty dull.
I’ll leave you with Andrew Klavan’s description of Weiner – “Physically, he’s a dead ringer for a turtle that’s been pulled out of its shell.”
After days of being vilified by the congressman and the left wing media, Breitbart gets his vindication and his moment to give it back to the “journalists” who were complicit in this whole affair.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to have AB on our side.
I keep hearing conservative talkers like Hannity, Levin and Breitbart himself, feeling sorry for this guy. I can’t muster much sympathy for him (his family, yes.) We’ve all seen Weiner at his worst, most vicious on news shows, and at his most arrogant. His crying today was because he got caught: because he was so stupid to keep lying and not own up to this in the beginning.
The first 2 rules: Admit fully and admit early. The moral: The cover-up is always worse than the crime.
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.)
Weiner's high school and current twitter picture/mediaite.com
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.
This has gone from accusing Breitbart’s site for breaking the story to vilifying the young lady as a stripper – this according to CNN today.
This guy is so fugly! Why would any woman find him interesting, let alone sexy? But you know what they say about men with big noses . . .
And he tells NBC that he can’t confirm or deny that the picture is of – mmm – him, but tell me folks, don’t you know if you’ve ever put a picture of yourself like that online? He’s claiming that the photo might have been manipulated — but again, don’t you need a photo of a man in his jockeys to doctor to begin with? So he put up a picture of himself in his underpanties and now he’s claiming that it was photoshopped?
Photoshopped to show an impressive (to some, I guess) erection? LMAO
Oh geeeze! I’m starting with gutter stuff. Sorry but this story just begs for it.

This guy just will not answer the question. And if he thinks it’s going to go away, he’s sadly mistaken. His lawyering up and refusal to give a simple yes or no answer is just going to make things worse. And his refusals make him look guilty. How much more stupid can he be?
