Well now, this is getting … dumber? Let’s say “dumber.” From the NYT CityRoom blog:

Mr. Weiner added, however, that he could not “say with certitude” if he was the person in the photo.

In an interview broadcast later on CNN, Wolf Blitzer asked the congressman “if he had ever taken a picture like this of himself?”

“There are – I have photographs,” Mr. Weiner replied. “I don’t know what photographs are out there in the world of me. I don’t know what things have been manipulated and doctored.”

Uhhh …. [NYT]

    The pearly Weinergates of journalistic Heaven have opened, prepare to be raptured (just you Wonkette Jr., the rest of us are gonna hang out for a while and masturbate).

    • jaytingle

      What do you mean prepare? We're already living in Breitbart's paradise.

      • HistoriCat

        DO NOT WANT!!

  • noodlesalad

    Manipulated and doctored like photoshop, or manipulated and doctored like a Swedish Pump? Let's hold a congressional hearing to find out, shall we? Congress isn't doing anything worthwhile anyways.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      I'm sure David Vitter has a lot of opinions about both manipulation and doctoring.

    Meh, until the TSA changes their "can't see London, can't see France, til we see your underpants" policy, this is a non story.

    I've got a flight to McCarran on Monday. I am sure several guards are going to see more than "Weinergates" shows.

  • Members of the GOP caucus are busy pouring over this photographic evidence as we speak.

    What they're pouring on the photos, I'll leave you to guess.

    • RadioJr.

      They haven't been this excited since they were cross-examining Linda Tripp.

      • flamingpdog

        Crotch photos and Linda Tripp in the same thread? MY BRAIN, MY BRAIN!

  • GhostBuggy

    Yeah, well, this asshole's been going around the teevee, making too much Goddamn sense, saying whatever he wants to our beloved Michelle and others. The fucking nerve. Our intrepid journalists (ugh) have decided it's time for this fucker to GO. Get that damn cock picture out there, and make him talk about that instead. See how he likes that shit.

    Also, Weiner? Really? Way to make this issue as creepy as possible, instead of just coming out and saying, "Fuck yeah, it's my dick! I put it out there so Boehner can suck it! I DEFY anyone to prove it's not my undoctored photo!"

  • Lascauxcaveman

    I'm sure I have a picture of my underpants around here somewhere… yes, here it is… no, wait. I think that's our plaid tablecloth drying over an alder log…

  • Callyson

    This just gets better…from HuffPo's take:
    We’re trying to get to the bottom of where the picture came from, and we’re trying to get to the bottom of what it’s of and who it’s of," explained Weiner when asked about the matter.
    Um, dude, the phrase "get to the bottom" is particularly unfortunate in this circumstance…

    • littlebigdaddy

      So that means Weiner's a top?

  • Lascauxcaveman

    OT, but on the Wonkette Ad front, it's good to see that the naked vegans have returned. And they seem to have upgraded their spokesmodel.

    Viva Cuba!

    Is he saying the weiner has been manipulated and doctored?

    Does that mean plastic surgery? Does it mean photoshopped? Drunk dialed?

    Is it some elaborate medically themed masturbation fetish?

    I smell the work of the ACORN pimp.

    • flamingpdog

      My doctor says manipulating your Weiner three times a week is good for the prostate, if you're one of the oldz like me.

  • Actually, it's Barry's knee in a underwear.

  • nounverb911

    Has anyone asked the Weiner if he wears boxers or briefs yet?

    • Negropolis

      That question was already answered by the photo. It'd be redundant…so expect the media to ask it…again and again and again and again.

    As I said the other day:
    Wonkette Jr., show us your junk!!1!

  • JackDempsey1

    Today, we are all Weiner watchers.

    I suspect that some of us will continue to be Weiner watchers tomorrow, as well.

    • DaRooster

      It definitely beats having to be a Bush watcher… such as he was.

  • flamingpdog

    But more importantly, how does this affect Sarah's bus tour?

  • So this is the circuses part of the Bread and Circuses to distract us from things like the beginnings of the second (and more severe) dip of the double dip recession, the one that will kill us all.

    I don't think the bread is going to be very good, either.

    • I knew I could count on Wonkette to take the rare moment of optimism I'm having and beat it senseless, leaving it broken and sobbing on the ground. Thanks. :)

  • Negropolis

    Why oh why does this dude keep giving interviews? STOP. Do not pass GO; do not collect $200 whore-diamonds.

    • I don't understand why he doesn't just do the following press conference: "Yes, the pic is of me. No, I didn't put it on Twitter. Somebody stole private photographs of mine, and then hacked into my personal Twitter account, and I'm going to find out who did it and prosecute him or her to the fullest extent of the law." Bam: focus shifted from "crotchgate" to "criminal invasion of privacy". All he needs to do is keep hammering home the words "personal," "privacy," "stolen," "invasion" — these are words tied to powerful emotions, and they work well.

      Put simply, he needs to play the game the scumsuckers are playing, because right now he's losing.

      • Negropolis

        That's really all he needs to say. It either is or it isn't him. If it's not him, he just needs to deny it, and if it is him, all he has to do is to say that someone hacked his account. In a world where people are sexting hard-core shit every second we type, it is not even hardly that embarrassing to admit that the pic is yours. After that, he can simply say he didn't send it, regardless of whether he did or not.

    • wondering where i am

      My theory is he is doing it deliberately–to get name recognition. It will help when he runs for NYC mayor, non? New Yawkers like dicks.

  • Negropolis

    I did not have twitlations with that twitress, Ms. Tweetlinsky…

    Breitbart and Tucker Carlson have gotten themselves in such a lather over this alleged incident that they'll undoubtedly try to set up a trap, wherein James O'Keefe pretends to be a teenaged sex pot online to get Weiner.

    • littlebigdaddy

      Well, as the old sexist joke goes, Tucker's just a-huntin' pecker.
      Breitbart, on the other hand, is a peckerwood.

  • pinkocommi

    I find bedazzling my name on my underwear helps avoid mixups like this.

    • Negropolis

      Remember when mom's stitched their son's name into their underwear? I don't, but I hear that actually happened in "once upon a time" time.

      • flamingpdog

        "This one time, at band camp …"

    • I also recommend going Commando, which precludes the possibility of this every becoming an issue.

    • wondering where i am

      Remember when underwear had the days of the week printed on them? Or was that just girls?

  • chascates

    Via HuffPo:
    After expressing a bit of frustration with reporters on Tuesday when asked to address the social media controversy, Weiner apologized earlier on Wednesday for having been "a little stiff" in his handling of the situation.

    • Negropolis

      Anthony's still got it!

    "Modeling" can mean a lot of things.

  • neiltheblaze

    He should have said, "That's definitely not me. First of all, my private pictures are totally XXX rated, and the man in that photo is way too small. Here – let me just whip this out…."

  • Serolf_Divad

    I can see why Wiener would have a hard time disowning the picture. I mean have you seen the size of that thing!? Seriously, hold up a picture taken from the waist down, of a well endowed, dark-skinned black man, his schlong hanging down to his knees and ask any white guy if it's a picture of him. If he doesn't proudly claim it as his, at best you'll get a string of non-denial denials: "Er… I'm not saying it is.. but I hasten to add that I'm not saying it isn't. I mean, I was in bermuda a couple of weeks ago and got pretty tanned, so conceivably… but you know, I'd really have to check… I don't know how such a picture of me (if it is me, which I'm not saying it is, you understand… not saying it isn't either) anyway, I'm not sure how it would have been made public…" etc.

  • Weiner has been specifically targeted because he is one of the Democrat's more powerful talking heads.

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    if I'm going to share a photo of my junk, it's going to be of my junk. NOT MY UNDERWEAR.

  • Is Mel Brooks on Brietfart's staff, or maybe on Weiner's?

  • prommie

    I heard an interview in which he actually said that it can't be him, because its too big, or as he put it, "it appears to have been manipulated, I am embarrassed to say, for the reasons stated by Jon Stewart the other night."

    Thats a first, man claims "it couldn't have been me, my dick's not that big."

    RUSSERT: but, but, but, but?

    REP. WEINER: I wish…

  • mavenmaven

    Here's what retard Dennis Prager had to say: “I’m just reading up on the latest of Congressman Anthony Weiner. Normally, I don’t talk about these things, but it is his treatment of the questions posed to him has made me highly suspicious that he should go the way of the Republican congressman who put up a picture of himself. What’s good for Republicans should be good for the Democrats.”
    Weiner is from NYC, he's probably about to sucker punch these nitwits.

  • hagajim

    I guess if my name was Weiner I'd be tempted to twit my weiner too.

  • I can't say with certitude that the 5 million pictures on the internet of a giant black cock attributed to some dude who calls himself "Mandingo" are not really pictures of my junk. If anyone would like to view hard evidence, they should hit me up for some cam2cam.

  • Gopherit

    today, none of us can say with certitude whether we have 9" of mansteak.

    And can I just say one thing? This meme is way cooler than "not intended to be a factual statement."

    • littlebigdaddy

      I, for one, am willing to acknowledge that it could possibly be me. You just never know when someone's gonna take a picture of your junk and 'shop it.

  • ArmoredBore

    Anthony, dude! Just man up and say something definitive. You're starting to sound like Sarah Palin™, ferkrissake!

  • AJWjr.

    Not helping, Anthony.

  • DustBowlBlues

    The only thing that pisses me about this is that he didn't send the photo to me.

  • ttommyunger

    Are we talking Congress here, or Animal House? One hit after another with these people. Unbelievable!

  • Soylent Green

    Am I the only one that see's whats going on? He's from Brooklyn, for Gods Sakes! He got pissed off by some Republican during vote and sent a nasty-gram: 'Yeah – I got your Dick Army right here'.
    Now I won't debate who was more juvenile: Him for sending it, or the narc Republican that re-Tweeted it. I see a devious smirk on Dick Army's face.
