Anthony Weiner Twit-Pic-Dick Scandal Ends In Tears, Dick Jokes

by Wonkette Jr.

democrat sad faceBREAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anthony Weiner’s was the weiner in “the weiner picture.” THANK YOU, ANTHONY WEINER, you have now guaranteed that greasy pustule Andrew Breitbart will never go away, ever.

Weiner went on the teevee and tearfully admitted to a roomful of reporters that he, not a hacker, tweeted the laughably tame photo of a peen in gray boxers to some ladies on the internet. Weiner, typical Democrat, not only cried at the press briefing, but he revealed that he failed to actually sex any of the half dozen ladies in question. Someone never read the scandal manual.

Weiner won’t resign, didn’t bother to misuse any public funds or break any laws, and he won’t get a divorce. Where are the prostitutes, the interns, the diapers?

“I have made some terrible mistakes,” Mr. Weiner said. “I have not been honest.”

Mr. Weiner said that after he sent the underwear photo on Twitter on May 27, “Once I realized I had posted it on Twitter I panicked, I took it down and said I’d been hacked.”

He added, “To be clear, the picture was of me, and I sent it.”

Mr. Weiner said he had inappropriate communications with six women over the past three years as part of a “consensual exchange of e-mails” with the women.

Meh, we give it maybe a 4 out of 10. Weiner seems to have been prompted to come clean after more photos surfaced on BigGovernment.com this morning, one of them showing a smiling Weiner at home on a sofa with his cats. TRULY THE STUFF OF OUTRAGE.

Even the women he was busy “sexting” with found him to be pretty mild. ABC News got an exclusive interview with Megan Broussard, a 26-year-old nurse in Texas with whom Weiner had been corresponding after she “liked” one of his video clips on YouTube. She had the following highly revelatory remarks:

Broussard, who describes herself as disinterested in politics and previously unaware of Weiner, said that she has never met the congressman in person and doesn’t “think he’s a bad guy.” And, she said, she actively participated in “sexting” — as she has done frequently with other men online — with the man she presumed to be Weiner.

Geminisunmars June 6, 2011 at 6:41 pm

That's what I've been thinking/saying/etc all this week. I mean, I've seen more in men's underwear ads on billboards.

Gopherit June 6, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Breitbart says he has an "x-rated" photo he has "been holding back out of decency". I guess that will be my new euphemism for fapping.

genxr June 6, 2011 at 7:08 pm

Sometimes he "holds back" 2 or 3 times a day.

ChuckieJesus June 6, 2011 at 8:40 pm

I gotta say something that I've been meaning to say to for a while… I'm a Gen X'er too. Kudos on the nick.

That said, Anthony Weiner is a quintessential example of the kinds of shit we, as a loose demographic, tend to get into. Old enough to remember before the ubiquitous Internet, but (with the exception of my nerd brethren/sistern minority – USENET, holla!) kinda stupid at working the controls.

Gen X is a lot like those silent movie stars that didn't quite make it when everything went talkie.

smokefilledroommate June 6, 2011 at 8:56 pm

I'm still trying to figure out how to read the interwub without Agent..

Chet Kincaid June 6, 2011 at 9:53 pm

Really? You youngsters are that stupid? I was born in '60, did my college with a typewriter and got my first home computer at 28 (a Mac), and I'm not as dumb as Weiner. Perhaps there is some factor other than year of birth.

riverside68 June 7, 2011 at 10:15 am

speaking as a boomer, maybe we are old enough to know that too much personal exposure, even on the intertubes, can actually ruin your life, 'cause I cannot imagine sending junk shots through the 'tubes. First off everything in the 'tubes is available to the FBI etc. That alone should give one pause.

Guppy06 June 6, 2011 at 7:12 pm

Ah, real intellectual-like. I see what you did there.

BaldarTFlagass June 7, 2011 at 8:26 am

And can we really tell whether it is angry or sleeping?

DaRooster June 6, 2011 at 6:32 pm

"Mr. Weiner said he had inappropriate communications…"

For Phuxaches… BFD… Who's dead or even living further below the poverty level then they were when this started? Nobody! Howz about we go after the ACTUAL criminals… you know, the ones that make up lies about why we are bombing the shit out of a country or rape the environment for monetary gains.

BlueMonkeh June 6, 2011 at 9:42 pm

No shit.

But hey – it kept that lying crook Clarence Thomas and his rotten wife Virginia Lamp Thomas and their little pay for play scheme off the front page.

Hypocrisy and criminality are the only reason why a supposed scandal like this should be given any thought, and as far as I can tell neither applies.

Being a pig or stupid or both is still not illegal in the USA. His sin against us all was in not saying "Yeah, I did it – so what?" from the very beginning (which inflicted notsoBrightfart on all of us for another week).

jaytingle June 6, 2011 at 10:33 pm

Bitch, bitch, bitch– just shut up and obey the Breitbart.

You damn him with faint praise.

glamourdammerung June 6, 2011 at 6:32 pm

Weiner really should have admitted to the picture then added that he was merely demonstrating American exceptionalism and started chanting "U S A".

Gleem_McShineys June 6, 2011 at 6:46 pm

He could have gone full Patriot: Tearing around the yard on an ATV, holding a flag in one hand and, erm, firing into the air.

Peace in our time June 6, 2011 at 6:47 pm

"…firing into the air"

Firing WHAT into the air?

ChessieNefercat June 6, 2011 at 7:17 pm

"Firing WHAT into the air?"

Uh, his uh, gun?

DaRooster June 7, 2011 at 12:13 am

I fire my bow into the air… not a lot of noise… till the sirens kick in a block and a half away.

RavenRant June 6, 2011 at 7:32 pm

As long as he didn't hit the flag.

Gopherit June 6, 2011 at 7:05 pm

I was hoping he was going to take time out of the presser to announce his new business venture: "Little" Anthony's Footlong Weiner Stops…..coming to a food court near you.

This is truly a sad man…he doesn't even reach up to the likes of Mike Foley. Pffft…

NYNYNY June 6, 2011 at 9:03 pm

I think it was Mitt Foley.

BlueMonkeh June 6, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Mark Foley.

And I don't recall seeing anything about a dead hooker or a live boy in this story.

NYNYNY June 6, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Mmm…no, it's was either Mike or Mitt. He was a Governor…and he did something. He molested a priest.

BlueMonkeh June 7, 2011 at 9:10 am

Mark Foley – former congresscritter. But if you've got another Foley, please feel free to cite.
Mark Foley a la Wikipedia
Foley resigned from Congress on September 29, 2006 acting on a request by the Republican Leadership after allegations surfaced that he had sent suggestive emails and sexually explicit instant messages to teenage men who had formerly served and were at that time serving as Congressional pages.

axmxz June 6, 2011 at 8:05 pm

To do my own bit of confessing, I too have comparison-shopped the wiener and found it wanting.

FrenchTwist40 June 6, 2011 at 6:35 pm

If ONE MORE PERSON on my television suggests that sending out penis pictures is behavior that needs to be treated by a therapist, I am going to scream. That is all.

frostbitefalls June 6, 2011 at 7:24 pm

Yeah, what a big surprise…humans are sexual, men think their dicks are attractive, people use the internet to communicate, some of us have fantasy lives…

Ken Cuccinelli June 6, 2011 at 8:59 pm

The core 4chan demographic tops off at 21 years old, at least as a maturity metric. After that, it's either ICanHazCheezburger workers looking for some "original content" for their web sites, or, as you note, the core demographic of Andrew Breitbart's web sites: middle-aged perverts hanging around teenage boys.

I'm sure there's more to it, but the point is that Breitbart is a pederast.

imissopus June 6, 2011 at 9:53 pm

He's never denied it, so it's 100% true.

The late historian Stephen Ambrose may not have originated this, but he was the first one I heard it from: "God gave man a brain and a penis–and enough blood to run one at a time."

Well, at least Wonkette is finally covering this gutwrenching climax of Weinergate. For too long a time I was reading about it on Daily Kos, but the Wonkette front page was frozen. So I had to suffer all of the disappointment without the relief of the snark.

Twenty dudes in a conga line

Too many dicks on the dance floor

Too many dicks on the dance floor

ChessieNefercat June 6, 2011 at 7:44 pm

Oh. Yes. Different concept entirely.

horsedreamer_1 June 7, 2011 at 9:51 am

Actually, isn't Kucinich looking for a new seat for which to run (preferably Pac Northwest, but open to other possibilities)? Why not move to New York City & run for Weiner's seat?

I mean, the Knicks might have been locked-out of Lebron, but at least the Big Apple would get something from Cleveland. Something other than Steinbrenner.

(Christ, what's wrong with that city?)

neiltheblaze June 6, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Weiner's Congressional District can at least console themselves with the idea that their Congressman isn't a pencil-dick. I mean – at least he's packin'. That's more than you can say for Peter King.

Anyone hear the reporter ask Anthony "Where's your wife?" What, so you can go and hound and humiliate her, too? None of your fucking business, you leeches.

RavenRant June 6, 2011 at 7:43 pm

Only thing he did right in the whole sorry business.

He didn't make his wife stand there in her lady-suit-and-pearls with the frozen look on her face like most of these douchebags do.

Negropolis June 6, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Houma strikes me as the type having heard about her that'd not consent to such ritualistic humiliation.

horsedreamer_1 June 7, 2011 at 9:52 am

I hope she went into a shoe & book throwing rage a la her boss, Hillary, when the Lewinsky story broke.

Geminisunmars June 6, 2011 at 8:25 pm

She is perhaps getting some good advice from her boss. And I'm not being snarky.

Negropolis June 6, 2011 at 8:31 pm

I don't doubt that for a minute. I'd hope she was.

BklynIlluminati June 6, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Also on another note Breitfart has yet to divulge how he obtained the pics. He better hope he got them on the up and up, a source as to opposed to a hack, because hacking a US House Rep anything gets you a lot of unwanted police attention, not to justify Weiner's dick show

Negropolis June 6, 2011 at 7:29 pm

My thought has always been that it is very possible he was set up, that one of these "women" may have been one of Andy Breitfart's frat boys having heard through the grapevine that if you ask nicely, and offer a sexy pic in return, that you could get to see Anthony's wiener.

Maybe I'm naive, but I don't think Breitfart has the attention span to hack an account. I think he probably just sent out his flying monkeys or solicited and open call for any dirt that could be found on Anthony.

glamourdammerung June 6, 2011 at 8:16 pm

I was wondering that myself. I have a funny feeling that this "Weinergate" nonsesense is not over and still is going to explode over Breitbart's face. Assuming he can stop rocking himself back and forth long enough anyway.

easybaked June 7, 2011 at 2:32 am

Can we treat Breitfart as an enemy combatant? Pretty please? Or as the evil dicktator of Breitfartistan and take him out with a drone strike?

Negropolis June 7, 2011 at 2:46 am

Even before this, I wanted to see Breitbart taken down, and this just kind of strengthens my resolve. I don't care what liberals have to do, I want to see that bloated motherfucker made to squeal like a piggy.

Honestly, there has to be something on someone so closeted and so self-righteous/judgemental. Why some blogger hasn't just totally taken him apart baffles me.

He hasn't a damned thing to the national discourse, and this is yet further proof of that. Who does this help. What does this add to the national discourse that wasn't taken away by it?

You know, Chris Lee was taken down by some random, apolitical single lady. This was so obviously planned and executed it's not even funny. Somebody was doing some fly fishing, pun fully intended.

Terry June 6, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Speaking to the males of the species here. What the heck is wrong with you guys? Sure, many of you are attractive enough or interesting enough that we, the females, would want to spend some time with you.

But you get so STUPID when it comes to your genitals. Don't take dick pictures, no matter how fabulous you thing your junk looks. Honestly, male genitals are as ugly as original sin…it's the other parts of you that we become attracted to. If you DO decide to take junk shots, DO NOT send them to anyone. Just admire them yourself. If you have any public presence, those photos will get out.

If you are tempted to take a photo of your junk or of you flexing your muscles, even, stop and do something nice for a woman in your life instead. Send some flowers. Buy some jewelry. Change the oil in her car (with permission). Mow the lawn and put in those bedding plants. Clean your Man Cave. Do some laundry, particularly your sheets. Those things will get your further than photos of your junk or a flexing peck. Really, they will.

Negropolis June 6, 2011 at 7:34 pm

I'd actually like to call on random women we meet on the street to stop reciprocating (hell, somtimes initating) by texting us boob and pussy shots. Actually, no; keep it up, por favor.

Honestly, who do you think we are sending these pics too? Hell, sometimes, we don't even initiate this shit. In this case, one of the women even admitted to exchanging photos and didn't even realize he was a congressman from what I hear. Sometimes, it really does take two to tango.

Fuck Toad June 6, 2011 at 8:23 pm

How dare you suggest that a woman would be so crass and unladylike as to send pictures of her private areas to some lewd man?? Next thing you know, you'll be suggesting women might actually find penises sexually appealing.

Well. I'm sorry, Tony, but you can't be my pretend boyfriend any more.

Not because you're a horrible person; none of the women seem offended (yet, have they talked to lawyers?), and for god sakes, they were women. I think this is between you and your bride (may God have mercy on your soul, incidentally). Perhaps our completely moronic media can stop making world wide fools of themselves over this and concentrate on something a teensy bit more important (jobs? housing? war? insane republican governors who all attended the "take down any publicly owned pictures or art work that don't feature adoring citizens lining up to give blow jobs to CEOs" conference).

No Tony, you can't be my pretend boyfriend because you (follow closely here) are stupid. Just, stupid. That's a deal breaker. Sigh.

The whole press corp there. Surely, if he is all lies, they would have stood up and just ranted them all out. Heck! Even take the podium and list them. It is easy to blog or write accusations when the person is not around to defend themselves. Imagine what Weiner would have said if Breitbart was not right there. No journalist was going put what is left of their credibility, on the line.

His name is more appropriate now, actually. "Weinen" is the verb about crying and puling. "Wiener" is a resident (or sausage) from Vienna. So the sobbing is apparently something handed down from some (male) ancestor of his.

Or some American got the ei/ie thingie wrong. Whatever!

GeoatBeck June 6, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Weiner has not even been married a year. His wife has to asking herself why she wasn't enough.

And this just keeps on going…

Gennette Cordova, the Seattle-area college student who was the unwitting recipient of the lewd Twitter photo, blasted the New York Post over the weekend for its "exclusive" cover story last Friday reporting that she "agreed to pose for pictures" in order "to offset what she said are unflattering snapshots of her" now splashed across the web. Judging by the story, this run-in also seemed to mark the first time Cordova agreed to discuss the scandal in the media.

Or was it?

"I was 'Trojan horsed' by an NY Post reporter who never said who he was or that he was interviewing me," she tweeted. "And after that invasion of privacy where they got me to speak casually, there's still no story here! Let it go."

In subsequent tweets, Cordova went on to explain that she had "allowed a local student who does freelance for the post to take pictures. I was off my guard because he was a student. … the one 'interviewing' me said he was the photographers [sic] 'assistant.'

chascates June 6, 2011 at 8:56 pm

NEW YORK — On Monday afternoon, in the Sheraton Hotel's New York West ballroom, it felt, at times, like there were two press conferences happening at once. One featured the spectacle of a teary-eyed and emotionally wrenched Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) apologizing for his online indiscretions. The other showcased a combative Andrew Breitbart doing his best to hijack the moment.

The conservative media provocateur spoke before, after and during Rep. Weiner's admission of sending sexually charged emails to six different women.

It was supposed to be Weiner's press conference — so why was Breitbart on the stage? He had decided to attend, he told the scores of assembled press corps members, partly because his hotel was "coincidentally" located three blocks away.

But, Breitbart also noted, "I'm here to watch myself be vindicated." He attempted to turn Weiner's press conference into a battle in his ongoing war against the so-called mainstream media, criticizing outlets that included Salon and The Daily Kos.

Negropolis June 6, 2011 at 11:06 pm

But, did he have to look so pitiful and pathetic doing it?

To me, a bad liar is someone who gives off bad facial tics, not someone who spends a full weekend holding court with the press (and having the nerve to berate the press he whored himself out to) and doing just about everything short of verbally admitting he lied until it's too late. That's not just bad lying, that's just plain pathetic amatuer hour bullshit.

To be honest, though, I'm not a fan, at all, of self-flagellation, especially of the public ritualistic kind. Personally, it doesn't ever enhance my liking of a public official when they do it, and in fact makes me think less of them, as it seems to be overcompensation in the other direction on their part. It's unnecessay kabuki rooted in a lot of latent religious bullshit ritualism.

Thank you for helping to legitimize Breitbart to our drooling Jesus-freak white-trash nation. And ensuring we'll have a whole summer full of this stupid "sex scandal" as if there aren't 1000 times more important things in this country to work on.

Still, how the hell did that Breitbart stooge, you know the right-wing psycho "patriot", tweet about "upcoming Weiner photo scandal" two weeks before the boxer shorts were tweeted? Obviously they had some right-wing bimbo, probably Ann Coulter, "like" Weiner's facebook posts & youtube vids to easily lure him in. And he fell for it all so easily it would make Karl Rove yawn….

This is something that both Dems & GOPs are familiar with. As well as the IMF, Hollywood, and any place someone with authority can use it to their advantage over anyone else. And women are finally hitting this mark, God bless us everyone.

tribbzthesquidz June 7, 2011 at 12:41 am

Ego come, ego go. It's telling that Weiner used his public networking accounts as a selling point for his internets sexytime rather than setting up anonymously on a dating/mutual-camsturbation web page such as Adult Fiend Frotter. No matter where one hooks up it is customary to send the penis/vagina/sphincter pictures on a separate, agreed upon chat utility. Word getting around about a person's sexual particulars can has consequences even for regular folk. The internet, fuck it.

fuflans June 7, 2011 at 12:43 am

When will Weiner be selected by Democrats as one of the people who make their party what it is?
http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2010/04/10/9106

– quote
In selecting the individuals who “make our party what it is,” SRLC
[Southern Republican Leadership Conference] chose Sen. David Vitter
(R-LA) to kick off today’s events. Vitter, of course, is known for
frequenting a Washington, D.C. and New Orleans prostitution service.
The married father of four has led Senate efforts to pass a “Marriage
Protection Amendment” and bring down ACORN. Today, right-wing
activists rewarded Vitter with a standing ovation.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum, who followed Vitter, lauded the “principled
conservative leadership that David Vitter has shown in the United
States Senate.”

Dashiell, Arthur, or Agatha?

(Don't know how much the movie deviated from the book/story, but that was a good movie.)

Given that this country is rapidly going down the shitter….I don't really find so much important about a weiner….except for jokes.

VeraSevera June 7, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Hey heteros, listen up! Destroying the American family and the sanctity of marriage is supposed to be OUR job. At least leave us some crumbs we can stomp on…

I had to come back and post in this thread. Really I find this tragic. The things Weiner did were deplorable yes, but not illegal. These girls were all over age yes? These were consenting adults making adult decisions. It is not like the case of Mark Foley who was carrying on with underage interns. While this will and should tremendously impact his personal life, it in no way impacts his ability to perform his duty. From what I understand he has been a competent and mindful politician.

I feel pity for people that suffer this fate, the fate of being destroyed simply for having personal failings. People like Larry Craig who, while it may be entertaining to mock his “wide stance”, was guilty of nothing more than being a closeted gay in the Republican Party. It is an indictment of our society that we force people to hide from who they are simply to serve their country, and then revel in their destruction when the truth is revealed.

We may enjoy watching our opponents fall, but it would be preferable if they were felled for the right reasons, such as political impropriety or outright corruption. Or for being a complete asshat who is unqualified for and incapable of any of the positions that they seek or have had, as is the case with Sarah Palin.

While many, MANY, of our politicians deserve to be publicly shamed and removed from office, they deserve it for reasons that are public, not personal, and those are the reasons we should focus on. Indulgence in this sort of spectacle lessens us as a nation.

I apologize both for rambling and for being a buzz kill, sometimes it is all too much for even my level of cynicism.

I'll have to part with you at the point of talking with Larry Craig. I only have two judgements: don't let you personal failings expose rank hypocrisy, and don't let them involve illegal activity. Any closeted "family values" Republican is guilty from the get-go because they can't be in the party unless they actively legislate bigotry. Sorry. I don't pity these folks that willfully make the choice to belong to this party, and I get a little something more than peeved when people try to draw false equivalencies.

NoTea4Me June 7, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Seriously the only thing that bothers me about this story is that Anthony Weiner was dumb enough to think he could tweet his weiner and not get caught. Is he really that clueless? He should loose his job because he is "Palin Dumb"!

Plus a surprise appearance by the biggest dick of all: Breitbart.

zhubajie June 7, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Why not just bare it all, if you're going to do something this crude? Toujours l'audace!

PostApocalypse June 8, 2011 at 11:23 am

Snark aside… it bears repeating that it's only when you are a morals legislating hypocritical asshole that this matters, like, at all.

My apologies to you, Tony, from all of us.

P.S. Nice penis, dude.

UpFistTroll June 6, 2011 at 8:33 pm

"Left-wing media." Hilarious.

GeoatBeck June 6, 2011 at 8:34 pm

Oops! "mainstream media".

Wink, wink :)

UpFistTroll June 6, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Hey, I guess when you watch Hitlervision 24/7, everything else would look left-wing.

GeoatBeck June 6, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Funny!

What channel is that?

You watch OzTV, I take it?

GeoatBeck June 6, 2011 at 8:58 pm

I believe we are all adults here. Let them make up there own minds. Then again, if they take their direction from you….

I think his brother must have had the good sense to marry another Limey.Larry Sanders, is a Green Party District Councillor for Oxford East[38] in Oxfordshire, England. His nephew, Jacob, is a former Oxford city councillor for the Green Party.[citation need

I'm sorry, you misspelled "corporate madrassa".

ChessieNefercat June 6, 2011 at 11:48 pm

'You're a bore and a boor and you forget to ante." Now run along.

GeoatBeck June 7, 2011 at 6:28 am

And you are exciting because…..

And Weiner is your idea of refined? I can forgive clumsiness or a gaff or two as it shows one humanity. It is those who dismiss any morals to preserve themselves. What is it about you that makes you feel superior somehow, to someone else? I've find most often, that it is some personal inadequacies festering within small people.

GeoatBeck June 7, 2011 at 6:46 am

Are you referring to the better path for an education? I thought they were being sponsored by universities? Just not tended by those indoctrinating the youth into an ideology, that has never worked anywhere on the planet.

GeoatBeck June 7, 2011 at 11:18 am
GeoatBeck June 7, 2011 at 11:36 am

Better education at half the cost. Look into why that is.

Couldn't have said it better. ABOUT YOU. Look who came in trying to spray Breitbart-scented stank on Anthony Weiner's wife?

That'd be you, by the way.

Seriously, champ, you are the small person you'd be insulting, if you had any self-awareness. Lucky break, eh?

glamourdammerung June 7, 2011 at 2:13 pm

I know I have explained to you many times now the difference between an opinion piece and fact.

So either you are stupid or dishonest and neither is really going to impress many people outside of Big Failure.

GeoatBeck June 8, 2011 at 8:18 pm

False dichotomy, and you continue to digress…

GeoatBeck June 8, 2011 at 8:20 pm

By the way, she is pregnant. A small person ignores the people around Wiener just because he promotes their ideology. We are talking Amoeba.
