Weiner was Dumb Enough

Rep. Weiner Admits Lying, Sending Lewd Photo, Inappropriate Conversations

Yup. Anthony Weiner was dumb enough to send pictures of his weiner. I thought it was a hacker job. Nope. I was wrong. He was horny, and there were recipients willing to take a look at it.

Even after all the computer-related scandals, he thought he would get away with it? These computer geniuses can see what you’re doing right now (Hi Bill!) And to trust that these chicks would keep these pictures secret is a serious gamble.

Message to Weiner: Why are you such a dumbass? Nice press conference of shame. A lot of us defended you, so thanks a whole hell of a lot. You make the party look really, really bad. All you had to do was own it. “Yes, that was my weiner. I’m so sorry. I was thinking with little Tony. Now, excuse me because I have to beg the missus for forgiveness.” Even if you don’t resign, you will forever be known as the guy who Tweeted his weiner. Well, at least you have a nice package.

    Still want that Canoli? I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself 🙂

    The worst part is this give Andy B credibility. That for me is the most horrible part.

    It also shows that all politicians are idiots even the liberal ones. What is it w/NY Jewish liberal pols? First Spitzer now Anthony..both couldn’t keep their dicks in their drawers..metaphorically speaking of course ;). I really did support Anthony..now he is just another stupid douchenozzle politician. Breaks my fucking heart.

    • Spinny Liberal

      Yes! It’s the B credibility thing. That’s what a lot of posters were saying on DK and C&L. Some are saying that he’s still a tool, but it frickin’ sucks because he gets to gloat about it.

      I don’t know if it’s a Jewish thing. Probably a horny guy thing. Maybe he isn’t getting any. He sure as hell won’t get any now. I expect to see something sparkly on wifey’s hand soon.

      Metaphorically – because Little Tony was covered. 🙂

      A lot of people did because he was a damn good progressive. Now he’s just a…weiner. Such a shame.

  • Dusty

    He was a great progressive voice. He really blew it for me..seriously makes me wonder who the hell else is a lying sack of shit..two in less than seven days..first was the guy I wanted to be President, Edwards..then one of the few politicians I believed and trusted Anthony, hung like a horse Weiner. 😉 Little Anthony might of been covered but this dipshit lied for over a week about it. Now he won’t resign? Excuse me but don’t we demand all the Rethugs caught w/their pants down resign? Same goes for Big Anthony in my humble yet vocal opinion.

    • Spinny Liberal

      Was That’s sad. He was fiery and passionate, and I really like how he pounded away with the 9/11 bill. We should hold him to the same standard. He might “refuse” to resign, but that might not even matter. Mama Nancy has already called for an ethics investigation. My guess is that he’s toast.

    I don’t think all politicians are idiots. I’m coming at this from an entirely different point of view. What the hell is the point of marriage? And why are so many people vociferously defending this union between a man and a woman? Geez, how’s that all working out for you married folk? Yeah, I’m cynical, but frankly, this doesn’t appear to have anything to do with politics – it’s more about the inability of a large portion of the male population to follow through on their marriage vows. Weiner isn’t any more or less gifted with fidelity by reason of his being a congressperson. The fact that the fool lied about it probably has nothing to do with his fear of losing his seat in Congress – fidelity isn’t a requirement of being a member of that fine institution.

    • Dusty

      Snoring Dog, I get hot when I am lied to..and that bothers me more than anything in this whole story. As you state fidelity isn’t a requirement..and I agree, I have however been married quite a few times and never cheated on whatever yahoo I was married to at the time.

      As for congress being a fine institution lmao, thank you. 😉

    • Spinny Liberal

      The “sacred institution” sure has been debased. I don’t know. I think vows should be customized to the couple’s situation. I’m not kidding. Like that “til death do us part.” For a lot of couples, it would be better to vow until “whenever one of us wants to call it quits.”

  • lbwoodgate

    We were both victimized by Weiner’s denial spinny. But Breitbart is still a despicable pimp because he has the gaul to ask Weiner for an apology for ruining his Palm Beach vacation with his family but Breitbart has yet to apologize for ruining Shirley Sherrod’s career.

  • Dusty

    As I said in my post and concur w/lbwoodgate, Breitbart ruined Sherrod and is still a lying sack of batshit who never apologized to Shirley Sherrod.

    As an HIV prevention specialist, I listen to the sex lives, and lies, of people every day, so I have to work without judgment, and that definitely flavors what I think about this.

    What I see in all this is that only in a country as histrionic as we are about sex would this have even been an issue. Who cares what pictures he takes or where he sends them? It’s really between him, his wife, and his play partners. If he had stood up and said, “look – I made a public mistake during a private habit, and its not your concern” none of the rest of this would be happening. It’s the lie that’s the problem – and the double standard of a public that wants politicians to fit the “ideal” and at the same time be “real”.

    Snoring Dog,you do make an interesting point. Fidelity isn’t a requirement of government (look at the nation’s founders). Research and studies done with the sex worker community (sex workers are one of my main client groups) consistently reveal that men who utilize sex workers of engage in internet sex see the behavior as completely outside of their marriage. Sex purchasers typically are happy in their marriage, have an active marital life, and get what they want. (its a myth the majority of men go to sex workers for that one thing their wife won’t do). However, in their head they have detached their marriage covenant from their behavior with the worker. It’s like 2 different worlds. Many don’t even see it as violating their vows or affecting their marriage because their personal denial allows they to detach their home/family from their action and many couples have an understanding about this kind of behavior with internet sex – the spouse may not like it, but tacitly realizes its part of reality and takes a “as long as I don’t have to see it or talk about it or you don’t really have sex and bring home an STD – do what you do” attitude. It wouldn’t work for my relationship – but whatever works for them is really their right.

    Which is my perspective on this kind of thing. If we held the “Founding Fathers” up to our feelings about personal behavior – we wouldn’t have elected them dog-catcher, let alone let them run a nation. But we require at least the illusion of truth. So I don’t think people want him penalized because he has online sex habits. I think they want him out because his incredible mishandling of this reveals he doesn’t understand how to play the game, and it upsets us when politicians can’t play the game.

      If he had stood up and said, “look – I made a public mistake during a private habit, and its not your concern” none of the rest of this would be happening. It’s the lie that’s the problem – and the double standard of a public that wants politicians to fit the “ideal” and at the same time be “real”.

      That was brilliant. If he said that, I think people would be shocked, but it would eventually go away. Instead, it’s still here, a week later, and worse.

      Sex purchasers typically are happy in their marriage, have an active marital life, and get what they want.

      Wow. I didn’t know that.

  • Dusty

    If I or anyone else has called for a Republican to step down because of anything even remotely considered sexual, then this qualifies.

    It’s morals..and although, as I said in my own long form thought on this topic on my blog..I know I would of blamed it on personal morality, not ‘work related’ in any way. I would of stuck up for him.

    Gawd knows he was a brilliant voice for the progressive agenda. That is coompromised now.

    Plus really..after I have had time to digest it..I don’t vote in his district, so it’s up to his voters.

    Every thing I have to say about it means nothing but the sound of my being pissed off that we were lied to over a dozen times in the course of a week. By someone I truly trusted and backed.

    • Snoring Dog Studio

      You say it well, Dusty. You trusted and supported this guy. He had a duty to uphold that trust. What an idiot he is.

  • nonnie9999

    i don’t think he should resign. he didn’t do anything illegal, and what he stupidly did had nothing to do with his job. would anyone here stop seeing the most brilliant surgeon in the world if s/he were sick if s/he found out he was tweeting weewee pix to some women? this is between him and his wife. he never pretended to be one of those holier-than-thou family values politicians. yes, he lied, but he was embarrassed, and with good reason. i’m angry at him, not for what he did, but for making it look like andrew breitbart has a shred of believability. that, to me, is the greatest sin. however, he stood up before the media today, made his statement, and unlike others before him, he didn’t run off the stage. instead, he took questions like a man. there’s something to be said for that. let the voters in his district decide next election day if they can live with his indiscretions.

    i think this country is so immature when it comes to anything to do with sex. we’re like a bunch of junior high schoolboys who giggle over this shit, and then we turn around and tut-tut the behavior like a bunch of puritans. politicians should have their private lives just like anyone else.

    do i make fun of rethugs when they have their sex scandals? damn, skippy! however, it’s not the lascivious nature of what they do, but it’s the hypocrisy behind it. when closeted rethugs vote against equal rights for gay people, there’s a legitimate reason to criticize them. when one of the “family values” holier-than-thou types are caught screwing around, they deserve what they get, especially when they use their offices to fund their walks down the appalachian trail. when they break the law, like john ensign did, and when that law-breaking is covered up by mr. c street, tom coburn, then they both deserve to be prosecuted. if politicians want to get blowjobs in their cars, i really don’t care. that is, unless the mouths they’re in belong to lobbyists.

    • Spinny Liberal

      If the ethics committee comes back with a guilty verdict, he probably would be asked to step down. I guess he can still work for now.

      I definitely agree about this society and sex. And I wholeheartedly believe that the ones who are hypocritical deserve to be called out. I’ve said it before, if you’re going to play moral police, you better be squeaky clean.

      if politicians want to get blowjobs in their cars, i really don’t care. that is, unless the mouths they’re in belong to lobbyists.

      Spot on! The thought of what could come from that tryst is scary as hell.

  • Snoring Dog Studio

    I don’t believe, nonnie, that the rest of us need to readjust our moral compasses to give people like Weiner, Ensign, etc. a pass just so they can do the jobs they’re elected to do. The hell with that. There’s a big, big difference between a surgeon operating on you, while cheating on his wife, and a politician who publicly promotes issues that have a morality focus, who is lying and cheating on his wife. I can sustain my confidence in that surgeon; not so with the politician. Voters are entitled to expect a higher standard from the politicians whose job performance depends on their credibility and forthrightness. That said, I find beaglezmom’s comments interesting and profound. That detachment between what these men have vowed to do and their philandering is difficult to understand. As I said before, why get married then? It’s not as though marriage anymore gives people credibility and standing.

    • nonnie9999

      i don’t think anyone has to readjust their moral compasses for anyone, including politicians. as for anthony weiner, he was never one to preach to anyone about morality. i don’t think that’s the job of politicians, and i can’t stand the ones who do.

      i completely agree with beaglezmom. we have no idea what goes on in someone else’s marriage, and it’s really none of our business. each marriage is different, and what might be unacceptable to one couple might be perfectly fine with another. if it works for them, then it’s fine, as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else.

      i agree that a politician’s integrity is important. i think weiner made a very stupid mistake, was embarrassed, and he screwed up when he tried to cover it up. he’s human. however, he admitted what he did, so unless something horrible turns up, i think he should be given a second chance. he didn’t run on family values™, so he isn’t guilty of hypocrisy.

      i don’t know about anything else, but someone sending dirty pictures of himself doesn’t bother me. is it icky? yeah. however, it doesn’t impact my life. i find it much more immoral for all these hypocrites to talk about how moral they are while they’re voting to screw poor people out of health care, screwing kids out of a decent education, and giving more and more money to rich people and corporations. maybe i’m crazy, but i think the media should pay more attention to who’s stuffing money into polticians’ pockets instead to who might have hands down their pants.

      i agree with you about marriage, but i can see that it might be important to some people. i tried it, and it wasn’t for me. it’s not for a lot of people. however, it works for others, so it’s not up to me or anyone else to tell any couple what the rules should be. however, it should never be a litmus test of anyone’s credibility. i would prefer not knowing who the spouses or kids of politicians are, except for how their jobs or investments might be considered conflicts of interest or if they’re put on the payroll when they have no experience for the job they’re given (see paul lepage’s daughter and others).

      • nonnie9999

        doh! i should proofread. “i don’t know about anything else” should have been “i don’t know about anyone else.”

      • Snoring Dog Studio

        I’m not asking my politicians to preach about morality. But they make a promise to uphold the Constitution and they make a promise to respect the sanctity of marriage. Is one promise – one commitment – less significant than the other? I don’t think so. I certainly would find it difficult to believe that Weiner, John Edwards, Ensign or any of the other philanderers were telling the truth when they go to such an extent to hide it and, to lie about it, and to get others to lie about it for them. That’s a bit much to swallow. (No pun intended!) Of course, if Weiner and his wife have an agreement, then fine. But that doesn’t appear to be the case here. You can’t require people to hang onto trust if you mock that trust and betray it, whether it’s in their personal life or not. Yes, we’re all human. We make mistakes, but then sometimes we have to wait a long, long time before trust is granted again. Weiner deserves a second chance and I think he’s been humiliated enough.

  • Dusty

    I find myself fast becoming a huge fan of Snoring Dog. She gets to the point, likke this one inher last comment:

    Voters are entitled to expect a higher standard from the politicians whose job performance depends on their credibility and forthrightness. Yes we should be able to depend on the jackholes for AT LEAST that.

  • Dusty

    It’s six am on the left coast so please excuse my lousy spelling and syntax folks. Gotta feed and water all those felines we rescue. 😉

    • Spinny Liberal

      Rescues in Kern County have a seriously hard time. I heard it’s because there are no limit to the number of animals you can keep. Add the fact that a lot don’t spay and neuter – disaster.

    • Snoring Dog Studio

      Good for you, Dusty! What an admirable and wonderful thing you’re doing. You’ve got a special place in heaven!

  • The Hook

    Weiner truly is a weiner!
