YouTube Dance Maniac Is Guy Running For Anthony Weiner’s Seat! (VIDEO)

  white guy moves

A white guy, in a suit! Dancing! Or possibly having an aneurysm! Medical science cannot tell! The NYTimes claims this soul brotha is one “David Weprin,” the intrepid New York City Democrat running for Anthony Weiner’s old seat. Can he capture voters’ wang-weary hearts? The race is apparently very close in this once safely blue district! Thanks for absolutely nothing, Anthony Weiner! David Weprin will win them back with his loco techno Macarena. (This adorable video is “opposition research” from 2009 some Republican just posted to YouTube, for freedom.) Viva! [NYTimes/YouTube]

        Not only are the 70s over, nostalgia for the 70s is long gone; hell it peaked when I was in college, and I'm old now. Although, with 90s nostalgia due on the 20-year nostalgia cycle, maybe they'll be some nostalgia for nostalgia; like with the video for Wheezer's Buddy Holly featuring clips from Happy Days, nostalgic for a 70s show that was nostalgia for the 50s. Through in the reference to Mary Tyler Moore and that's nostalgia on at least four levels.

          Say what?!1? If nostalgia for the 70s peaked when you were in college, you're a young tyke! "Happy Days" had just barely started when I gradumacated from college (for the first time).

          You ever been to a 60's nostalgia party? Neither has anybody else.

    I've never seen that many black people awkwardly shifting.

    At least, not since the last time Wayne Brady was on TV.

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      Or watching any of those Madea movies–seriously, what is up with Tyler Perry & all the cross dressing?

        1. horsedreamer_1

          Gayer than Pedro Almodovar?

          And with that, Tyler Perry acquires mention with Almodovar for the first and last time.

      By my rough estimate, 90% of YouTube commenters are 12 years old, brain-damaged, or both. Not much different from the BrightFart crowd, in other words.

    As it turns out, there aren't too many people left who "want Weiner's seat."
    So, in his defense, this is not the best New York has to offer.

    1. SorosBot

      And Weiner didn't even do anything. Sadly, I don't think he would have been hounded into resigning if it wasn't for his name and the fact that our media has the maturity level of a twelve-year-old and wouldn't stop making childish puns about the world's mildest sex scandal.

    How can it be close, this is NYC we normally have to open a National Geographic to even see a real Republican.

        1. Goonemeritus

          Larchmont or some such if they’ve made their bones, Jersey if they’re posers, Poughkeepsie if they’ve only seen the DVD.

          1. Negropolis

            How could you forget Connecticut? Don't forget Connecticut.

            But, not even a banker would live on Long Island.

          2. Goonemeritus

            When I take Metro North from Grand Central I see these sad folk on their way to Connecticut. I’m even told some of them live there by choice.

          3. Negropolis

            Lieberman Libel!

            BTW, for such an insanely wealthy state, Connecticut has some pretty shitty cities, no?

  4. HistoriCat

    I suck as a dancer but at least I know it when I see it. Whatever that shit was he was doing – it wasn't dancing.

  5. Sharkey

    The word "funky" is mysteriously missing from this Wonk post as well as all the comments.

    Where is everybody tonight? Recovering from last night's jobs-whatever-hangover?

  6. ttommyunger

    Why don't these people realize they look like the total rhythmless dorks they are? O.T. My wife's best friend says she never fucked a man unless she danced with him first. This clown would not make it to first base with Dottie, I guarantee.

    1. Sharkey

      I must admit I'm in the same camp – If you can't/won't dance, you can't/won't fuck. There is a ray of sunshine however – it does not matter whether the dancing is good. Just do it and see where it gets you. That's the point.

      Edit: This clown probably never had a chance with Dottie no matter what the circumstances.

    2. ShaveTheWhales

      I'm not gonna watch the video, because I can always look in the mirror if I want to see bad dancing, but I'm gonna register a vote for "dance like there's nobody watching".

      I can't jump either, but that didn't stop me from enjoying hoops well into my forties. And I'll still dance if I can find someone foolish enough to accompany me.

    3. V572 T-Blow

      By the same token, excessive terpsichorial competence in a putatively hetero male is highly suspect.

      1. ttommyunger

        Quite true, however Dottie's criteria centered around the presence or absence of rhythm primarily, if not solely; and yes, godammit, you made me go to the Dictionary. Happy?

        1. V572 T-Blow

          Learning is a life-long process, regrettably. It’d be so much easier if you could just turn off your brain, like a Republican.

          1. ttommyunger

            That would be a comfy feeling, wouldn't it? I guess that's why they usually seem so smug-they are convinced they know everyfuckingthing.

          2. V572 T-Blow

            Ever read the book about Pat Tillman — Where Men Win Glory? That was one amazing learning experience for me. Pretty sure you’d feel the same way.

          3. ttommyunger

            I could not stand to read it. I am a Ranger (former) and I feel so badly for him, his family and his comrades. I blame Bush, Rummy and McChrystal for his death, the felonious “investigation” and the attempted cover-up. It sickens me to this date.

          4. V572 T-Blow

            I understand. There's one beautiful moment in it when Tillman looks around at the flabby, cigarette-smoking losers in his BT platoon, most of whom are one tattoo away from a jail sentence, and writes in his journal that maybe there's a bit more to this “leadership” thingthan just being the toughest guy among a bunch of spoiled NFL players who've never done anything but work out and play football. He was an amazing guy: married his high-school sweetheart, read books, had cats, and knew that he had to do something more with his life than play football.

    C'mon, y'all. We are the people who are accepting and tolerant of differences. Okay, this dude couldn't out-dance Speaker Boner. But he's out there, making a fool of himself amongst the Voters of Color, trying to be uninhibited. Give him a break.

      1. Pristine_ODummy

        He's not great, but he's not too terrible. At least he's got (wait for it … wait for it …)
        RHYTHM!!

        This guy is pretty pitiful.

  8. Sharkey

    This will probably turn into a whole new Wonkette post but here goes anyway:

    "We have a strong conservative candidate in Bob Turner who has the opportunity to win a congressional seat in the heart of New York City. He is facing a career politician who will vote in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi in support of Barack Obama's failed economic policies that have added $4 trillion to our national debt in only three years. The Obama Democrats just put $500,000 into the race to defeat Bob Turner and keep this seat in their liberal hands."
    -Reince Priebus
    Chairman, Republican National Committee

    Emphasis NOT mine.
    Bad dancing can get U SRS $$$$!!!!

      1. NorthStarSpanx

        Don't worry, SarahPAC's forced last-minute $1,000 contribution will make a difference in all causes near and dear to her servant's heart to make a difference for Real American's wanting to take our country back without a title.

        Seems she ain't desiring to progress beyond her "potential Presidential candidate" non-title that gets her all those teabagging hard workin dollars.

  9. SexySmurf

    What exactly would you call that dance? The Vertical Crawl? The Rock Climber? The Epileptic Seizure?

  10. Negropolis

    Why is that moustachioed man high-fiving the air…and can he teach me how to do it?

    This is actually worse than Wolf Blitzer being taught how to Dougie at last year's Soul Train Awards. Google it.

  11. AznMom420

    I like the cut of this gentleman's jib. His chaste dancing confirms he's never known another so carnally as to text them his dick, and chances are he's still embarrassed every time he whips it out to pee.

    1. Negropolis

      'Tis true, 'tis true. If your congresscritter has skills beyond doing the chicken dance or running man, be very worried. Very, very worried. Actually, be very, very proud that your congresscritter is getting some, and probably anywhere and everywhere in between.

    The beat goes on and I'm so wrong
    The beat goes on and I'm so wrong
    I may be totally wrong but I'm a – dancin' fool
    I may be totally wrong but I'm a – dancin' fool…

    Move over boy, I got better things to do
    I've got plans and they don't include you
    Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

  13. NorthStarSpanx

    Since he's a Dem, it makes sense that he dances like a marionette instead of a GOP puppet. He'd dance better with a hand shoved up his ass.

  14. horsedreamer_1

    Better moves than Obama.

    Truly, Barry, Sr., made his greatest mistake never teaching his namesake to dance.

    1. Negropolis

      I thought his greatest mistaken was knocking up some Kansan, and then running — nay, fleeing –all the way the hell back to Kenya, the bastard.
