Weiner's an "Anything Goes" Democrat

Sure, when it suits him. On the other hand, his website proudly announced:

WEINER INTRODUCES BILL TO STOP SEXUAL HARRASSMENT ON CAMPUS
REQUIRES COLLEGES TO PUBLISH CLEAR GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR

Jack is Back!

Didn't the whole Tiger Woods business start with some bimbo denying she was Tiger's girlfriend and then everything went to carp?

I say this has legs - giant stilt walker legs.

Ignatz

I look forward to a couple of pages of puns and double, triple and quadruple entendres on this thread.

But consider this one fact, if your last name was "Weiner" and you were bound and determined not to change it, what kind of a humorless twit would name their kid "Anthony" instead of "Oscar"?
That would be like having the last name "Frank" and naming your kid "Barney" instead of "Ballpark".

Rocco

Don't you think a hacker would have used a more graphic photo? If someone were going to set him up, I think they would have used a full monty...no?

Army of Davids

ObamaCare's Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB)...Sarah Palin's "death panel"?

This thing polls horribly and as Joe Biden would say..."it's a big Fn deal". Why does it get zero MSM attention?

Danube of Thought

Hell, they could have named him Peter. Or Dick.

Gmax

That is my story and I am sticking to it.

Well the appropriate test here is "would your wife buy this story if you laid it on her?" While some of us might have extremely gullible spouses, I can tell you that story would get swatted away pretty damn quick at my house. And me.

From the NYT:

U.S. Announces Sanctions Against Israeli Company

By ISABEL KERSHNER

Published: May 26, 2011

JERUSALEM — Even as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was praising the United States in a speech on Tuesday for imposing tougher sanctions on Iran for its nuclear activities, the State Department announced that it was imposing sanctions on a leading Israeli company, Ofer Brothers Group, for activities supporting Iran’s energy sector.

But instead of thanking the US, the Israeli Government complained:

“Nobody wants to over-interpret the choice of timing,” said an Israeli official who was speaking on the condition of anonymity for diplomatic reasons, “but there was no objective reason for the State Department to come out with the announcement on that precise day.”

...


According to the State Department, the Ofer Brothers Group and its Singapore-based subsidiary, Tanker Pacific, are being sanctioned along with Associated Shipbroking of Monaco for their roles in a September 2010 transaction that provided a tanker valued at $8.65 million to the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines.

The shipping company has been cited by the United States and the European Union for its role in supporting Iran’s proliferation activities. Deputy Secretary of State James B. Steinberg told reporters in Washington that “Iran uses revenues from its energy sector to fund its nuclear program, as well as to mask procurement of dual-use items.”

And from the Guardian:

David Cameron resigns as patron of the Jewish National Fund

David Cameron has stepped down as a patron of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in a move pro-Palestinian campaigners claim is a result of pressure but which Downing Street insists is part of a general review of the prime minister's charity connections.

The JNF was only one of a number of charities from which Cameron stepped down, said Downing St. His predecessors Gordon Brown and Tony Blair continued to be JNF patrons throughout their tenure.

The JNF was originally set up to buy land in Palestine to establish Jewish settlements before the creation of the state of Israel. Now it is a global charity which describes itself as the "caretakers of the land and people of Israel", specialising in planting forests. Critics say it expropriated land belonging to Palestinians and has obliterated pre-1948 Arab villages by planting forests and parks. The JNF is involved in the demolition of Bedouin villages in the Negev desert as part of an afforestation plan.

Rocco

As to the truth, well, Weiner's an "Anything Goes" Democrat and the girl was 21, so move on.

Not so fast, seems Weiner has a history with this sort of thing.

Furthermore, Weiner is also reported to have actually followed back yet another young girl, this time, a Twitter groupie by the name of Maggie Henning, who is only in high school! This seems to indicate a cradle-robbing inclination by the congressman, and following two young girls on Twitter is certainly suspicious and creepy.
anduril

Umph. Sorry for the formatting mistake. The bit from the Guardian is supposed to be separate from the NYT stuff.

It would seem he's been caught in a lie. My joy knows no bounds.

Headline unlikely for us to read:

Weiner Grilled for Inappropriate Contact with Coed

glenda

Well, Weiner does look like Horshack, so acting like he's 13 yrs old is expected; not accepted... but this whole twit mess just makes me lose my appetite (which could be a good thing..)

of course BO at the Tomb of the Unknowns also made me nauseous..maybe, I've got a virus :)

MayBee

Mark Foley was brought down by an email to a page which basically said, it was nice to meet you. That email was saved for months before it was unleashed by Rahm in a campaign against him.

It's too bad he didn't have Twitter. Where congressmen following and messaging high school students apparently completely acceptable.


Or was that not about Twitter, but about how uncomfortable people, even liberals, really are about gay men vs. straight men?

How about:

It is 71 degrees and sunny, not a cloud in the sky. I am seated in our shade garden, enjoying a pre-lunch Martini with my 87-year-old mother-in-law (a.k.a. The Vile Banshee), a WWII veetran Army nurse whose late husband went ashore at Normandy on D+1 and was wounded in France.

I am also enjoying a cigar, which she declined.

A fine day to be alive.

JiB, after watching the Ken Burns Civil War series for the first time I ordered a copy of the Sullivan Ballou letter and had it framed and put it in my office. To this day I can't get through the whole thing with a dry eye. Can't link (iPad), but I recommend Googling it and reading the whole thing.

Carol.Herman

Okay. So what would you use: "Schmuck?" Or "Putz."

When you "twitter" privately ... do you send pictures?

We talk on the Internet, here, and have no idea what someone else looks like.

But a shot of a man in his underwear? Maybe, his camera dropped? You know, you can't both look at what you're "shooting" ... and, at the same time snap a picture.

Yes? No?

Maybe, a guy named "Weiner" ... shouldn't be subject to "Wiener" jokes? Didn't he grow up hearing them? Wouldn't he have been aware of how he felt about such jokes?

I pick "putz."

Carol.Herman

A "schmuck" is what Monica saw.

One thing is for sure--that Weiner in the photo leans to the left.

Actually I think those 2 should get married - so we could have Barney Weiner-Frank and Tony Frank-Weiner.

Rereading this has become a Memorial Day tradition.


The Democrats' genius front runner continued his non-stop gaffe parade yesterday. Famously he hailed America's "fallen heroes" noting he saw some in the audience.
On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

Less famously he placed his uncle then serving in the US military at the liberation of Auschwitz :

In World War Two we didn't have the concept of post traumatic stress syndrome. People had to basically handle it on their own," he said. Referring to an uncle who had been one of the first U.S. troops into Auschwitz, the concentration camp, Obama said: "The story in the family is he came home and just went up in the attic."

Historians would have told him Auschwitz was not liberated by U.S. troops but by those of the Soviet Union.

Seems like more than his uncle belongs in the family attic.

I am sure the words got in the way.

Danube of Thought

Cponsider Weenie-man's dilemmhe's somewhat bewildered by what has happened thus far, but going forward he is exquisitely mindful of the fact that lying to the FBI equals a federal indictment.

If he does not affirm within the next 72 hours that he has reported this event to the FBI the world will know he is a liar.

Rocco

Oh I wish I weren't a Democrat like Weiner

That is what I truly hate to be

Cause if I weren't a Democrat like Weiner

Everyone might not make fun of me

Sue

According to Ace, Weiner has retained counsel "to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken". I must say, Weiner is taking this rather well, not wanting a "prank" to be treated as something more. Okay, he did it or knows who did it.

Threadkiller

--"If he does not affirm within the next 72 hours"--

A firm is what got him into this.

Well I just bet Weiner and wife are having a fab Memorial Day. You have to pay dearly to retain a lawyer on a holiday.

I can't wait for Hallow-Weinie this year! I'm wearing an Anthony mask!

these appear to be boxer briefs, which are a combo.

You're a US Congressman. You publicly assert that you are the victim of a federal crime. But before you report that crime to the FBI you have to lawyer up?

If Weiner isn't guilty, he is writing the book on how to look guilty when you aren't.

Reminds me of when I was up in Marquette, Michigan on a project and I use to go to the Northern Nichigan football games. The year they won the Division II title under Steve Mariucci as QB and Buck Neilsen as line coach (gratuitous name dropping for PD and harryjf). The student body sat in the raucous north stands across from the well healed alumni and townspeople on the south side. As tradition before the game they played their alma mater which the students sang using the Oscar Mayer lyrics since the melody was the same. A real hoot especially since it was probably snowing and minus 15 at the time. But thats the UP for you, eh?

Maybe we should get CNN's Richard (Dick) Quest to do a Dick Quest on Anthony's Weiner?

CNN fans will recall that Dick Quest got busted in Central Park for "...drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot...", so who better in the NY Newsbiz to get his hands around Weinergate than a reporter from "America's Most Impotent Network?"

If nothing else I'm sure Dick could take a great Poll.

Submitted for Memorial Day consideration:

      John Wayne's 104 birthday.
        HOW JOHN WAYNE SAVED THE MARINES
        Thursday, May 26, 2011

        Today is John Wayne’s 104th birthday. He was born on May 26, 1907 in Winterset, Iowa, as Marion Morrison, weighing 13 pounds. His birthplace is a museum.  There is a guest book, opened to a page with the entry, in the entrant’s handwriting, Name: Ronald Reagan. Address: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC.

        To celebrate the birthday of a truly great American, let me tell you how John Wayne saved the Marine Corps. In the aftermath of World War II, the psychological letdown after years of war and bloodshed, the huge demobilization of servicemen, the desire to slash military spending, and the antipathy towards the military by left-wingers in the Democrat Party all combined in a call by a number of Senators and Congressmen to abolish the Marine Corps.

        In this, they were supported by the Doolittle Board, created by Harry Truman, which called for the Marine Corps to be “disbanded” as a separate military force, and “unified” with the Army (yes, the board was headed by an Air Force general, Jimmy Doolittle).

        A group of enterprising Marines – you can always depend on Marines to be enterprising – with Hollywood connections, thought a movie made around the most famous photograph of World War II, Joe Rosenthal’s of the Marines raising the flag on Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima, could help sway public opinion against their disbandment.

        They approached legendary director Allan Dwan, who agreed to commission a script. The movie was to be called “The Sands of Iwo Jima,” and everybody agreed there was only one man who could play the lead role of Sergeant Stryker: John Wayne.

        To their great surprise, Wayne turned it down. He didn’t like the script, and he wasn’t enamored of the character of Stryker. The Marines came to the rescue again. The Marine Corps Commandant, General Clifton B. Cates, got on an airplane and flew from Washington to California to personally request Wayne make the picture. When General Cates explained the stakes involved – the very existence of the Marine Corps – Wayne immediately changed his mind, promising the general he would do everything in his power to have the movie be a success.

        The Sands of Iwo Jima was released in 1949 and quickly became a runaway blockbuster, with millions of moviegoers packing every theatre showing it. Wayne was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, establishing him as Hollywood’s Number One box-office star. The Doolittle Board folded its tent, and no politician on Capitol Hill ever again said a word about disbanding the Marines.

        So let’s all say “Semper Fi” to the memory of John Wayne.

        To further celebrate his birthday, here’s a treat and some advice. The treat is this link: A biography of John Wayne written by Ronald Reagan, in the October 1979 Reader’s Digest.

        The advice is this: Don’t ever trust a man who doesn’t like John Wayne. A man’s opinion of John Wayne is a good rule-of-thumb test of his character and moral values. To admire John Wayne is to admire the heroic and the morally noble. To sneer at John Wayne is to admire the opposite. It’s revealing that you find very few liberals among the former, and very few conservatives among the latter.

MayBee

Ha, DoT. Glenn Greenwald wrote a book about American hypocrites, and John Wayne was hypocrite numero uno. Apparently, he supported WWII and the military, but didn't try hard enough to enlist after he was rejected for being too old.

So I agree with your rule-of-thumb.

"by the way, in another thread Weiner's type of underwear was discussed, briefs or boxers

Windansea,

Well since Weiner's wife worked for Hillary, and since Hillary as the Arkansas Governor's wife used to donate Billy's used Boxer's to the Salvation Army and claim $4.50 or so in Tax Deductions for them, I think we need to get Hillary's take on your question, and also her input on the current Tax Deduction value of Weiner's stained undies, what with inflation and all. Soon as she finishes her speech congratulating Islam for their contributions to NASA is when I'd pop that question to her.

Rocco

Oh Boy...I'm going to be in the confessional a long time this week!

So how long before Weiner steps down? I assume he has to run again in '12 and can decide he won't run again = and then take a job at CNN.

Clarice,

If you scroll down to the 6th picture here I think you will spy Sarah Palin making time with your boyfriend Alan West:)

And look at her saying "Hey" to this Vet in picture 4 here.

Wow. Is she photogenic or what!

PD

Back from Door County now. It was a nice trip. Not nearly as much rain as had been forecast (though we did get a little hail last evening). Had some good meals, visited a couple coffee shops, got a lot of reading done. Time spent together with my sweetie ... I'm happy.

Apparently I have to get my gaydar recalibrated as well, although my bidar was never that good to begin with.

MayBee,

Your link with photo's to who Weiner was following on Twitter was very revealing so I'm posting it again in case folks scrolled on by. Link. And that doesn't even include the Porn Star he was tweeting.

Obviously nothing to see here folks. Move along.

Extraneus

I never realized it, but she's pretty tall.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

I just saw the pic in question over at Ace's. It looks like one of those pics you accidentally shoot with your cell phone (it was taken on a Blackberry). I have discarded many pictures of my knees and feet over the years. In fact, in setting up my brand new phone a few days ago, I managed to shoot both my knees and feet more than once as I learned how to use the various features of the camera. The touch on the new phone is much more sensitive than my Blackberry and it took some getting used to.

"the world will know he is a liar."
He is a Democrat. Why would you think he wasn't?

Oops. I accidentally took a picture of my erect penis. I really only meant to use the vibrate function.

MayBee

I bet Weiner would cry if he heard you say that, Sara.

Ignatz

Off the top of my head I can only think of two Dems who would have been bigger disasters for the Dems than that superlative bubblehead Debbie Wasserman Schulz as DNC chair; Kucinich or Sheila Jackwon Lee.
Any others in the running? Wiener, Maxine Waters?

Captain Hate

daddy, the Terps fell short against Katie Couric's Hoos today in the LAX championship. On the positive side, it was coach Tilman's first year and he did a lot with the guys he inherited. On the negative side, we're 0-7 in championship games in the last 36 years which is pretty unacceptable for a LAX hotbed.

Being a Maryland fan isn't for the easily discouraged.

Jack is Back!

She is so in their heads its almost sadistic to watch their brethless indignation and tsk, tsking. And that shot of her with West should go viral with the header, "Is This The GOP Ticket For 2012?".

I love watching liberal heads explode.

Captain Hate

I can't think of a better pawn job on Weiner than what Sara just inadvertently nailed him with. It might even make Huma laugh. Maybe...

Captain Hate

Iggy, I think you id'd the only two that would've been worse. She looks horrible, sounds illiterate and probably smells really bad. A total assault on the senses.

Jack is Back!

CH,

According to friends on the hill her nickname is "Old Blinky". She was appointed DNC chair for one reason - her district is next to West's and outside of Palin the insiders in DNC fear most is West. They wanted someone close enough with operatives, volunteers to eventually do the donkey dance of slander, dirty tricks and such on him. Mark my words, you will see a full frontal assault when Palin announces.

pagar

Daddy, you can add this to the long list of events that not many seem to care about.

JM writes:

"To be fair, anduril apparently loathes Muslims as much as Jews. Alas, the good old days of medieval Latin and Torquemada are long gone."

Doubt it. He is hard core conspiratorialist/religionist obsessed with original sin. Those types commonly obsess about every detail of Israel, and how they collectively condemn Israel (or the Jews). The idea of "collective guilt" excites his weiner.

Keep on, Keepin' on

Weiner has retained the services of Willie, Wood, Johnson & Schwanz as legal counsel....

stole that from a commenter at BG :)

seriously, they seem to have shifted from being hacked to being pranked

time to trot out a low level staffer who takes the fall?

Captain Hate

Jack, I agree with JMH; having observed anduril's comments for a while, he would prefer the rock worshipers to be expelled in a bit of historical role reversal. That's not to discount his obvious "issues" with Jews, which usually manifests itself in Israel bashing.

Jack is Back!

And when Tom Rooney introduced legislation making attacks against serving members of the military here is what Debbie The Skank had to say:

"I'm from a state, as Mr. Rooney is, that includes and represents the districts that include real victims. I represent a very large -- one of the largest gay populations in the United States of America. One of the largest Jewish populations in the United States of America. My region -- our region has a very large African-American population. It really is belittling of the respect that we should have for these groups to suggest that members of the armed services have somehow systematically been the victims of hate crimes."

Sums this scum bag up in a nutshell. She makes all us Gator fans puke.

Sue

The consensus amongst lefty commenters is this is a right-wing plot to bring down Weiner. Which makes absolutely no sense since Weiner is claiming it is a prank and needs a lawyer to determine whether or not he should file a complaint. If Weiner really thought someone was trying to bring him down, he would have already been on tv, front and center, crying foul and calling for an investigation.

Captain Hate

Sue, enough about Weiner's weiner. Go Mavs!!

Sue

Go Rangers, tonight. I'm loving the top of the 3rd.

Go Mavs indeed. I want to know which basketball god was in charge of this year's NBA finals? And why, given the number of teams in the East, we had to have another go-round with the Heat? ::sigh:: I called the last one in 5. I'm still trying to determine if it will be 6 or 7 on this one. Mavs winning of course.

Sue

I really, really, really want to call Mavs in 5. Winning the 1st in Miami and all 3 in Dallas. Whadda ya think Capt'n? Should I call it in 5?

PD

CH, I assume you're not exactly in mourning over Tressel's resignation?

Sadly CH, talking about Weiners is the most on topic I have seen a thread in a while.

I wonder if Tony is now happy that no one thinks he is gay.

Of course he could announce he is gay to make this whole thing go away. I wonder if his wife would agree, for the good of the country and all that.

In light of Sara's comment, I'm glad my most recent was about football.

Thanks for the straightening out, Captain Hate.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

I read a couple of days ago about a poll that indicates that the public thinks gays make up about 25% of the general pop. when the figure is really only about 3%. The poster asked why such an overestimate?

Does anyone else wonder why, when the gay issue is pushed in our faces every day? Last night, 3 different network drama shows revolved around a gay issue. We see stories in the news and on the Net every day. It is treated as a new badge of honor.
