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

  there's no crying in politics

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.

    1. Beowoof

      Who is fucking who or who is trying to fuck who will always be a top seller when it comes to the American News media, we are such prudes about sex.

  2. Soylent Green

    we failed you, anthony. we should've stood up, and claimed that wang as ours – just like in Sparticus.

    1. SexySmurf

      In my defense, I was telling everybody it was mine. (Who knew Tony was swinging so much pipe!?)

    1. Geminisunmars

      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.

    2. Gopherit

      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.

        1. ChuckieJesus

          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.

          1. Chet Kincaid

            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.

          2. riverside68

            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.

  3. DaRooster

    "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.

    1. BlueMonkeh

      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).

  4. glamourdammerung

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

          1. DaRooster

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

    1. Gopherit

      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.

    2. HistoriCat

      He should have said "I'll give you what you really want!"

      Then dropped trou and let them take all the wiener pics they wanted.

      1. BlueMonkeh

        Mark Foley.

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

        1. NYNYNY

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

          1. BlueMonkeh

            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.

  5. meufchelou

    Should I find it vaguely disturbing that my husband has sexier looking briefs than Weiner? And no, it's not a 4 out of 10 more like a 2.5.

    1. axmxz

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

  6. pukebot

    texting random people inappropriate pictures of yourself from your traceable accounts. the perfect crime!

  7. FrenchTwist40

    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.

    1. frostbitefalls

      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…

    2. AddHomonym

      Welcome to 21st century USA, where if we can't commodify it, we pathologize it (then commodify it.)

  8. Callyson

    Nancy, it's a good thing you're a grandmother, because it's time to give this bad boy a spanking. That is, unless he would enjoy that, in which case just fund a primary opponent. He deserves it for giving Freightfart a shred of legitimacy.

    1. Negropolis

      Nancy, it's a good thing you're a grandmother, because it's time to give this bad boy a spanking.

      If there are pictures of that, please text them to my phone…

  9. timbo71351

    I'm hoping Andrew Breitbart gets caught tomorrow with a 13-year-old Thai shemale.

  10. bumfug

    I remember 20+ years ago when we were laughing at trash TV "news" shows like "A Current Affair". If I'd realized I was looking at the future of news in America maybe I'd have paid more attention.

  11. user-of-owls

    I was afraid of that. Um, how 'bout if I send you some hilarious Negro jokes? Would that make us right?

  12. weejee

    he revealed that he failed to actually sex any of the half dozen ladies in question

    So Weiner was a wiener wacker to boot?

    1. ChessieNefercat

      Back-handed compliment to the wife? Oh, never mind.

      "Honey, I got all excited thinking about these women and sent them pictures but I really only want you to touch it."

  13. riverside68

    I understand that the motto in Music Promotion is: There is no bottom, just new lows.

  14. Fare la Volpe

    Why is this a scandal again? I can't remember a time I didn't text pictures of my business to guys I'd just met on the internet.

    I always thought it was like a trouser-friendly handshake.

  15. SayItWithWookies

    Well, this episode, once tumescent with scandal, now looks small, weak and spent. I'm going to roll over and get some shuteye now — hope you didn't want to talk afterwards or anything.

  16. Ken Cuccinelli

    You know what'd be really awesome? If everyone kinda pretended that Andrew Breitbart had nothing to do with this. He and/or one of his harem boys grabbed a screenshot. Congrats, Andy. Here's a certificate saying you possess the same capacity to operate computer software as your average 4chan poster.

    Deny Breitbart his daily fap. Pretend he doesn't exist.

      1. Ken Cuccinelli

        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.

  17. user-of-owls

    Are we gonna have to dig up all those typewriter font experts again?

    By the way, who does that sort of stuff? I mean really?

  18. BklynIlluminati

    I am so annoyed he was like a hyped Yankee prospect, a kid that you hoped would usher in the next generation. Friggin kid had game he made those monkeys uncomfortable and now at best he is what he is though i still think he can be the mayor of NYC ain't no one else out there.

    From the latest issue of Unintentionally Funny Lede Magazine:

    "A legion of 1,600 newly-recruited Democratic campaign volunteers, armed with Tweet-producing smartphones and a contagious spirit of enthusiasm, are fanning out across 40 states today to begin laying the groundwork for the reelection of President Barack Obama."

    First they came for Anthony's foreskin, and I did nothing, because I was taught never to confront a rabbi with a scalpel in his hand.

        1. Limeylizzie

          I love Bernie and his brother who somehow managed to get a council seat in a British town…

          1. RavenRant

            I had no idea. I hope his brother is as good a public servant as Bernie. No snark. Bernie renders me snarkless.

          2. Limeylizzie

            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

  21. CapnFatback

    With apologies to Savon Garrison, Isaiah Washington's character from Love Jones:

    "When a man gets a hard on, you know where the blood comes from, right? His head and his feet. So, A: he's stupid and B: he can't run. But the motherfucker can Tweet."

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      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."

  22. wondering where i am

    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.

  23. HurricaneAli

    Dumb Schmuck! You schmuckety schmuckschmuker, I cannot fucking believe you would do that – have you no brains, sir?! Ah, another one bites the dust in my heart /sad.

  24. Gleem_McShineys

    Jesus Christ!

    How many more levels of penis are going to be added to this story??

    Anthony Weiner (1) admits the picture is of his weiner (2), and also cries like a little weiner (3), while vindicating that dicksack Andrew Breitbart (4).

    Tell the players, make it understood
    It ain't no good if there's too much wood
    Make sure you know before you go
    The dance floor bro-hoe ratio
    Five to one is a brodeo
    Tell Steve and Mike it's time to go
    Wait outside all night to find
    Twenty dudes in a conga line

    Too many dicks on the dance floor
    Easy to fix
    Too many dicks on the dance floor
    Spread out the dicks

  25. jakegittes

    That's it. If Alan Grayson, Dennis Kucinich and Bernie Sanders do something pervy next, then I guess I've gotta become a Republican.

    1. MissTaken

      Oh I'm sure Dennis Kucinich does plenty of pervy things to/with/on/inside of his wife. Yummy!

    2. horsedreamer_1

      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?)

  26. neiltheblaze

    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.

  27. Negropolis

    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.

    1. RavenRant

      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.

      1. Negropolis

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

        1. horsedreamer_1

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

    2. Geminisunmars

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

  28. BklynIlluminati

    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

    1. Negropolis

      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.

    2. glamourdammerung

      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.

    3. easybaked

      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?

      1. Negropolis

        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.

  29. Negropolis

    Did you hear the question from the same guy of "Did you father Schwazeneggers lovechild?"

  30. Terry

    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.

    1. Negropolis

      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.

      1. Fuck Toad

        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.

    2. ChessieNefercat

      Oh, if only he had consulted you before he commenced to admiring his personal regions with a camera in his other hand.

    3. zhubajie

      It's like apes comparing the size and redness of their buttocks. All male primates do these things, willy-nilly.

  31. Graham Cracker

    Another example of a guy thinking with his penis. Looks like Anthony put a lot of thought into this one.

  32. JackObin

    Didn't this asshole realize his last name is Weiner? This situation could only be worse if his name were Dick Boner.

  33. ChessieNefercat

    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.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      Oh, gross. I'm looking at your comment with the word "weep" and it is just above a comment with the word "pustule." And "Breitbart."

      Not that that is your fault.

  34. metamarcisf

    Am I alone in my sense that the saddest possible outcome of this sordid mess would be a resignation by the congressman without him ever getting any actual extracurricular pussy?

  35. MadBrahms

    "…you have now guaranteed that greasy pustule Andrew Breitbart will never go away, ever."

    Oh, Breitbart – this hardly makes up for the shams of Pimpgate or Sherrodstravangza. Still, apparently even a broken cock is hard twice a day year or so.

  36. Negropolis

    Dr. Drew is on CNN's John King USA discussing this "complusion" and about how Weiner could be pushed to suicide.

    Yep, this has officially jumped the shark in a few hours flat.

  37. metamarcisf

    Am I alone in my sense that the saddest possible outcome of this sordid mess would be a resignation by the congressman without him even getting any illicit pussy?

  38. metamarcisf

    Am I alone in my sense that the saddest possible outcome of this sordid mess would be a resignation by the congressman without him even getting any illicit action?

  39. Trollina Dumbass

    The upside is he got free PR for his sex-you-upping? Whether he remains a congressman or not he'll probably have ladies throwing themselves at him for life.

  40. weejee

    If we're feeling like cartoons, like Dashboard's link above, Tom the Dancing Bug has a wonderful one today on PR's Ride. No you sillies, not Paul Revere, but Palin Revisionism.

    1. glamourdammerung

      Because he was spitting and rocking back and forth like a speed fiend while shrieking the same thing over and over without giving anyone a chance to say anything?

      1. GeoatBeck

        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.

        1. UpFistTroll

          Easy. They all know that Breadfruit is an entertaining little fuck that fills their airtime with bullshit. They aren't going to kill the golden goose.

          1. GeoatBeck

            This one was golden. Poetic justice. I'd re-think killing the golden goose, they have been doing it for a few years now. The leftwing media will be outside with a tin cup, during their breaks.

  41. BTWBFDIMHO

    What a waste of a smart politician.
    Once again, the poet James Howell was right: One hair of a woman can draw more than a hundred pair of oxen.

  42. orygoon

    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!

    1. Negropolis

      Yeah, because you're real concern here is Anthony's wife. Give me a fucking break. You think we forgot who you are? Troll, be gone. GTFO.

      1. GeoatBeck

        Not just a break but a <adj> break. No troll here, I just disagree with most of your diarrhea diatribes. People who do not agree with are not trolls.

        1. Negropolis

          Again, do you think we forgot who are are and your history here? Again, GTFO you disingenuous creep.

          1. GeoatBeck

            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.

          2. Gleem_McShineys

            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.

            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?

          3. GeoatBeck

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

  43. RedNM

    If Weiner had guts he'd resign just as Senator Vitter (R) (LA) did when he was caught red-handed in the prostitution / diapergate scandal.

      1. HistoriCat

        I AM – oh shit, this is NOT going according to plan.

        (Sits down, tries to look unobtrusive).

  44. slithytoves

    Note to world – social media is public and you cannot delete.

  45. Veritas78

    Geebus, what kind of mush gets into people's heads when they get elected to something? And I'm not talking about your average egomaniac thinking "That NO STOPPING sign doesn't apply to me while the missuz runs in for some smokes." They actually think, "I can take a picture of my dick, mail it around, and nothing bad will happen!"

    Is it their staffs—okay, scratch that or don't—their employees? Are they so surrounded by sycophants that they think they shit gold ingots? Cuz this has gotta stop. The rest of us are just getting by, and we cannot afford to have fools like these working for us.

  46. BTWBFDIMHO

    I am friend with Sara Benincasa in Facebook, but I never received any picture from her. Maybe because I am a Loser and not a Weiner?

    1. HistoriCat

      She's waiting for you to make the first move. Whip it out and go click click send!

  47. Goonemeritus

    This should serve as a good abject lesson to us all. We need to stop assuming an air of familiarity with politicians we admire after all they are as weak as any of us. When confronted with endless adulation their ego gives their brain bad advice. I for one deeply regret those mash notes I sent Bella Abzug in the seventies.

      You BASTARD! I thought all along that she was mine alone. Fickle two-timing women…

  48. GeoatBeck

    Not in most minds, but in hers. It takes total allegiance to defend him. You think he would have come clean if Breitbart did not have other photos?

      1. GeoatBeck

        And the mainstream media would do what with anyone who disagrees with the ideology? They would release them all, make photo copies and post all over the children's schools. And Weiner is not all about attention?

        1. UpFistTroll

          Yes, that's right. Public schools routinely post pornography in the halls. Why, last week, I saw a bunch of children leaving their "Atheism, Socialism and Anal Fisting for Beginners" class.

          1. GeoatBeck

            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.

    More rank awkwardness: Eliot Spitzer is discussing the scandal with a panel trying their damnedest to side-step Spitzer's own scandal. Down the rabbit hole, y'all. Hold on to your butts.

    1. lingin

      I thought this was hilarious. And yet Spitzer is on his way back to respectability. All Weiner has to do is lay low for awhile, have Jon Stewart advise him and by the next election cycle he should be fine.

    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.'

    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.

    The media has just heard about sexting by politicians. Oh oh this will mean non-stop dick and boob pics flying around the media. If I get a choice, I would like Mehgan to send me a pick of her boobs.

  53. JoshuaNorton

    Attention future politicans. Just so's you know, if ever anyone asks you if that's a picture of your dick, any answer but "no" means "YES".

  54. Redhead

    Consensual exchange of pictures – no sex, not even naked pictures, underwear pictures with all the naughty bits totally covered – with consenting adult women. This isn't a scandal, period, even by democrats. I mean shit, at least Clinton actually got some.

  55. JoshuaNorton

    9/10ths of the technology we have today wouldn't even be around if you couldn't do something pornographic with it.

  56. weejee

    Unless they had a seriously open marriage agreement, the Mrs. should put Congressdick Wiener on the Staten Island Ferry, chain an anvil to his dick, give Tony a sharp knife, and then throw Tony and the anvil off the ferry and see if he's willing to do some serious up-fisting. Or would it be down-fisting? Not because of what he did, but because he was such a little wiener about the whole thing once his modest (I'll be kind) underwear advert hit the tubes.

  57. lochnessmonster

    Okay…I'd better not make any post about this subject until morning with the way my head is right now.

  58. SaintRond

    Hell, if I could show every one of you my weiner right this minute I'd do it in a heartbeat. Especially Sarah Benincasa. I'd really, really like to show her my weiner and I'm not ashamed to admit it. And it's cool too, because I'm a Democrat. SO BLOW ME!!!

    It's only disgusting when Republicans do it. Because they're hypocritical and snicker like five year olds. So fuck 'em.

  59. Crank_Tango

    and somewhere in pennsylvania, rick "santorum" santorum is crying tears of santorum for getting his big coming out day ruined.

    1. BTWBFDIMHO

      If Weiner tweeted pix of his weiner, shouldn't Santorum tweet pics of his.. No, never mind.

  60. BTWBFDIMHO

    He did all that so blogs stop posting about Sarah Lou for a while. Thank you Anthony!

    1. Negropolis

      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.

  61. carlgt1

    I haven't made a Weiner bad joke/pun until now:

    "Weiner is a dick"

    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….

    1. GeoatBeck

      It couldn't be a left-wing feminist was insulted by his unsolicited nude photo? What idiot would send photos to anyone they hardly know (one as early as April) and expect them not to be exploited? I wonder if these true liberal followers of Weiner got paid for outing him? Free stuff is a great motivator for libprogs.

  62. LiveToServeYa

    This is obviously not a case of too much info, but too little. All members of congress should have their members, or artificial surrogates, photographed and displayed on a .gov website so that their size and other aspects may be compared by an informed citizenry res pubica.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      You go right ahead, thank you for being a more conscientious and responsible citizen than I am. I'll settle for a written report that I will never request a copy of.

  63. chascates

    You know, the men (and it's always men) that are leaders in businesses and governments, and high-level military: Navy pilots, heart surgeons, news anchors, whatever . . . turn out to be obnoxious, sexist horn-dogs who think they are invincible.
    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.
    If we think our world should be shaped or governed by marble statues we'd better figure out that everyone has 'feet's of clay'.

  64. tribbzthesquidz

    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.

  65. fuflans

    nah. he doesn't need to resign. it's a minor league sex scandal without the actual sex. also, he's not a 'family values guy'. he can fall.

    however, if the 'under age' allegations are true, well, that's another story.

  66. fuflans

    good god, seriously, this is just a stupid sex scandal (sorry huma, for you it's a LOT worse and i do appreciate this and i hope it all works out) and it's FUCKING JUNE and THERE. WAS. NO. SEX.*

    and this is not the second coming and no one's slouching anywhere and vitter's still in office and just let it be people.

    also New York: can you just keep it in your pants? that would be nice, thanks.

    america.

    * and if there WAS sex, flay the bastard.

    1. GeoatBeck

      I wonder what he else he might have done to make this go away? I think the security risk (blackmail) is the real issue. Maybe give someone a job, influence a bill… I do not understand why some would dismiss this aspect. Any party needs to keep a clean house.

  67. Sparky_McGruff

    Seriously. I mean, Madeline Albright once faxed me a picture of her boobs. I didn't think that was scandalous at all. However, it did run the fax machine out of paper.

  68. Negropolis

    Kan we haz nother Republikan skalp naow?

    Where's our Andrew Dullfart? Can't we at least publically out Lindsey "Hambiscuits/Tara Plantation" Graham, already? Must you make us beg?

  69. OldRedneck

    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.”
    – end quote

    1. finallyhappy

      Really! Does anyone is the GOP see their stupidity and hypocrisy? Marriage Protection!!!- yes, you can be an adulterous whore monger but don't let the Gheys marry
      Don't make me too angry- I am on my way to work with DC visitors- the good, the bad and the GOP

  70. ganmerlad

    I am really pissed at Weiner. He didn't just fuck over himself, he fucked over the rest of us too. I see months of republican hopping and pointing and 'ha ha ha ha!" ahead. Fer fuck's sake. For that reason alone, Weiner is dead to me. DEAD to me. (I don't care if he sends me pictures of his pussys or of his chest muscles…talk to the hand)

  71. HurricaneAli

    LIVE BOYS OR DEAD GIRLZ NEXT TIME, PLZ.

    Why stop there? Santorum-covered hamsters, dobermans, longleaf pines – all of God's creation is available for abuse.

    You'll have to excuse me, I was just thinking of the twisted things a social conservative would do while espousing unflagging family values.

  72. horsedreamer_1

    Dashiell, Arthur, or Agatha?

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

  73. hagajim

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

  74. VeraSevera

    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…

  75. mormos

    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.

    1. Negropolis

      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.

  76. NoTea4Me

    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"!

  77. zhubajie

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

  78. PostApocalypse

    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.

  79. glamourdammerung

    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.
