Weiner Beseiged By Hungry, Cranky Olds

by Sara K. Smith

She'll drink the Kool Aid, as long as it's served at 12pm sharp.Well, it appears we have an answer to this morning’s burning question. The answer is: violent, insane mobs have overtaken every single political forum in the country — including one held at Brooklyn seniors’ center, where Rep. Anthony Weiner was nearly eated alive by a churlish group of anti-Communist mummies.

First principal of civil political discourse: do not get between an old person and his lunch.

The Democratic congressman, who represents Brooklyn and Queens, showed up at the Council Center for Senior Citizens in Midwood just before noon for a town hall meeting on President Obama’s health care plan.

[...] “I came to eat and I came to eat on time,” said David Figman, an 84-year-old retired postal worker. “They are having chicken marsala today and the food is good.”

Rep. Weiner proceeded to absorb a lot of heated insults until finally, at 12:22pm, the misery ended.

“I’m just hungry,” said 76-year-old Albert Fink. “This is a lot of silliness.”

Linda Lefton, 61, stared at the clock.

“Usually our lunch starts at noon,” she said. “I think he is going to cause us to delay our lunch. That’s no good.”

Democracy in action!

Why did that Old dye her skin using the pictured kool-aid sample? That just throws off the entire message.

dum librul August 14, 2009 at 10:08 am

OH SNAP she is going Braveheart with Kool-Aid face paint! It’s like so many different types of points in one act. This woman is my new hero.

slavojzizek August 14, 2009 at 10:08 am

I don’t believe any of this. Everyone knows you have to show your membership card in the Communist Party to get past the senior citizen death council in Brooklyn.

Todd Mecklem August 14, 2009 at 10:11 am

I’m glad that old Fink didn’t eat that Weiner. You never know what’s in those darn things.

My mom and uncle go to a senior center(not this one) for lunch. During the presidential campaign, a lot of candidates came through including Hillary- but not Hopey. The candidates always spoke in a different room from the lunch room- although the sound was piped in- because you do not want to keep 200 old Jewish people from their food!

magic titty August 14, 2009 at 10:16 am

Hahahahaha. Jesus. Way to conform to the stereotype, Olds.

I’d like to see that Goofy Grape Kool Aide furry bust on through her wall!

chillpill August 14, 2009 at 10:20 am

Hopefully she’ll get so p!ssed she’ll bust through the wall kool-aid man style…OH YEAH

chillpill August 14, 2009 at 10:22 am

erm, or ^ what widget09 ^ said.

widget09 August 14, 2009 at 10:23 am

[re=386247]chillpill[/re]: Great minds think alike, I think if goofy grape busts trough, the old fart would have a heart attack, saving the death panel’s time.

Don’t ban me but isn’t it “principle”?

“84-year-old retired postal worker”

Nobody gets government benefits that didn’t work for the government. That’s what it means to serve.

bureaucrap August 14, 2009 at 10:27 am

The Obama forced euthanasia has already begun. They are baiting the Obama death chambers with chicken marsala and waiting for the olds to wander in in search of food. Shame, shame, Shame!!!

Thanks for using that ruddy man’s photo again. His sausage-y fingers are The Hotness.

grendel August 14, 2009 at 10:30 am

Ironically, Senior Centers feeding the oldz are more communist than the health care reform…

BigDupa August 14, 2009 at 10:31 am

Perhaps death panels aren’t such a bad thing…..? Or maybe we just outlaw reruns of Matlock and Murder She Wrote and see who has the will to live?

Naked Bunny with a Whip August 14, 2009 at 10:32 am

“Good food” is socialist! A proper worker drone should be content with its protein tablets and water dispenser.

Joshua Norton August 14, 2009 at 10:32 am

So are olds screaming about “socialism” while getting a free lunch at a Senior Center? They should use some of their SOCIAL Security money to buy a clue.

finallyhappy August 14, 2009 at 10:32 am

[re=386251]boatapple[/re]: you are correct but you will be banned. Hey, do you remember “the principal is my pal” as a way to remember how to spell that? We weren’t using the word “principle” ever when I was in school. I review work for PHDs- and often they make the same mistake- but they are engineers so I don’t expect much in the way of spelling.

One Yield Regular August 14, 2009 at 10:33 am

Representative Weiner, I have a question. If I miss out on the chicken masala special that my senior center won’t serve me unless I’m in my seat at noon on the dot, will Obamacare cover my taxi ride to the nearest death panel?

Hey, can’t let that government funded chicken marsala get cold. Anti-government rants can wait till after the jello’s served.

[re=386257]widestanceromancer[/re]: Is that old a dude? I thought it was a broad. Either way, ’tis a creep ass picture.

bureaucrap August 14, 2009 at 10:38 am

[re=386257]widestanceromancer[/re]: I always thought that pic was of a woman. Perhaps that’s what “Pat” from SNL is doing these days — teabagging.

Speed Ball August 14, 2009 at 10:39 am

Enjoy that chicken marsala, olds, because that’s the first thing the Death Panelz are going to cut out of that diet of yours.

jodyleek August 14, 2009 at 10:41 am

WTF? What the hell is wrong with this Rep. dumbshit? Doesn’t he know that the oldz are just taller, wrinklier four year olds? Why couldn’t he just speak while the old coots are eating? At least their mouths would be shut (for the most part) while they’re gumming their rubber chicken. Then when he is done speaking he should have personally passed out the graham crackers and milk and told them what a good job they did listening. Weiner FAIL!

Now I want chicken marsala for lunch. Thanks a lot.

Apart from Matlock, the only thing that motivates our chronologically-enriched Americans is the prospect of a discounted early bird buffet.

freakishlystrong August 14, 2009 at 10:46 am

Um…this is making my hair hurt. So it’s a senior center, (social program), and they’re on Medicare, (social program), eating our food. Bring ont the death panels, we could save some money!

[re=386271]jodyleek[/re]: That’s it! Have a big ol’ table of [insert stereotypical old white redneck food here] at the town halls! All food is free for those who turn in their “Obama = Hitler” signs/Tshirts. Civil debate commences.

I sincerely apologize for being repetitive, the reeefresh is communist and therefore was not working….

George Will' August 14, 2009 at 10:53 am

I hope they enjoy their lunch of government cheese paid for with their social security money while crying about communism.

Please do not use that picture of that crazy woman anymore, she looks exactly like a former crazy boss of mine: a woman who once said that healthy women should just cut off both of their breasts, that way they never would have to worry about the damn cancer EVER. I hesitate to even write this, as Aetna or Horizon personnel might be reading this and think this would be a GREAT way to keep down insurance payouts.

thefrontpage August 14, 2009 at 11:10 am

Isn’t it crazily stupid and psycho that all of these morons ranting and raving about “government-sponsored health care” will gladly, hungrily and arrogantly collect their Medicaid and Medicare payments and money—-which are government-sponsored, taxpayer-sponsored, tax-money-sponsored government health care?

Jim89048 August 14, 2009 at 11:13 am

I feel as if I wasted the lives of my parents and grandparents, all of whom died on their own, without any benefit of the death panels, thereby denying me of my rightful inheritance. Now I’m broke, bitter and borderline old myself with no kids to pull my own plug when necessary expedient. Thanks a lot, Obama…

Rep Weiner should fire the staffer who scheduled the meeting at that time (or himself if it was his idea). Obviously completely out of touch with real people who eat lunch at the stroke of 12.

Damn it, the olds are onto our strategy of putting cyanide into Koolaid.

Neoyorquino August 14, 2009 at 3:45 pm

On a serious note, I knew Anthony Weiner “back in the day” at State University of New York, Plattsburgh (waaaaaayyyy north). He was a real stand-up guy, and very easy-going. I’m amazed he was as patient as he was with the screamers. On a related note, the media neglected to mention that after their lunch, the olds gathered at a nearby socialist public park, shook their gnarled fists at the sky and shouted angrily at a passing cloud for 27 minutes.
