Threadkiller

The battle of the buldge.

clarice Feldman

That pup tent appears to be the right size.

Threadkiller

...bulge buldge

peter

Regardless, the man is a reprehensible individual, and his marriage may be the price he pays if not his political career. It really is hard to figure out who is the most disgusting Democrat-- Clinton, Carter, Schumer, Pelosi, Obama, Gore

bgates

Who's the victim now?

America.

To be fair, we elected these morons.

bgates

C'mon, Anthony,Throw 'Em A Rope

From what I understand of the situation, he can't throw them a rope because he's hanging on by a thread.

And from what I've heard of the picture...same deal, actually.

Not-bubarooni

Volokh says Kloppy conceded?

I can't wait for the calls for Prosser to recuse himself from the review of the Dane County Dunce's decision.

Groundless to be sure, but the indignation should be priceless.

bgates

Weiner: Why would I even mail a picture of my penis to a girl? I'm gay!

TPM: Oh, well, that's o whawhawhawha?

Weiner: Hacked!

bgates

I don't believe in the idea you believe in that this will end.

He tweeted the same sentiment to an entire Girl Scout troop in Arkansas.

Janet - Where Is The Weiner Story?

Where is Obama? What year is it?

Rob Crawford

The real loser in this story is, IMHO, Ace at AoS, who is being a whiny little bitch over this.

How anyone can think a Democrat being caught doing something naughty would ever amount to anything big is beyond me. Democrats are allowed all corruption -- moral, sexual, financial, and political. Whining when no one "big" wants to tilt at the ol' windmill is just childish.

Captain Hate

If Tony the Vienna Sausage keeps making a fool out of himself in front of friendly media, they can always trot out Debbie Weeblehead-Scrunt to say something completely inane.

Captain Hate

Rob, this is a rare time when I'm taking Ace's side over yours. I think he's doing well just to amp up the attention on it and rub Tony's ugly mug in it. That it's such an immature, childish, lowbrow matter goes right into the Ewok's wheelhouse.

PD

Weiner: I was hacked.

Reporter; Thus the size?

Ralph L

Priceless comment over at Althouse.

eventually it was released and the issue was returned to the back burner went limp.

Stephanie

Narciso, I'd say in Weiner's underpants, but we all know that there's no room for em.

Danube of Thought

"Clinton, Carter, Schumer, Pelosi, Obama, Gore"

It's tough, but I'll give it a try. In order of repulsiveness:

Carter
Pelosi
Gore
Schumer
Obama
Clinton

I won't quibble with any other ordering. We're talking all-time All-Stars here: Kareem, Russell, Jordan, Bird, Oscar, Magic, West, LeBron...

And then you've got your Stocktons, Malones, Worthys, Petits, Cousys, Pippens, Duncans, Robinsons...

Them would be Reid, Wasserman-Schultz, Cuomo the Elder, Teddy,
Leahy, Durbin...

peter

Oh,yeah, left out manslaughtering treasonous Kennedy

Danube of Thought

Yeah. And I left out Wilt. Teddy is Wilt. And Bobby is maybe Nate Thurmond or Bob Lanier.

Threadkiller

In a thread about briefs, peter, how did you leave out Boxer?

Rocco

A BRIEF "TO BE FAIR" INTERLUDE: It could be the case that Weiner is a victim of a vicious hack attack even if the photo is really of him. Imagine that a hacker got control of Weiner's accounts, found the infamous photo of what is allegedly Weiner's wiener, and Tweeted it out. Who's the victim now?

I might buy that theory if it weren't for the fact that Weiner tweeted 4 minutes after the photo was posted. I'm no puter wiz but how the heck could he regain control of his account 4 minutes after a hacker hacked it?

Ignatz

TK's got a million of 'em.

Rick Ballard

"I'm no puter wiz but how the heck could he regain control of his account 4 minutes after a hacker hacked it?"

Grabbed the keyboard back from Sully?

Stephanie

Grabbed the keyboard back from Sully?

You owe me a keyboard for that one. I snorfeled. Alot.

Sue

Not looking good for the Mavericks. Not sure where Dirk is tonight but he isn't in Miami. ::sigh::

Comanche Voter

He's not handling this well. But then nobody else wants to handle it either.

Weiner has a bad case of the short man's disease--he's got to make a lot of noise and be aggressive because otherwise he gets trampled on.

bgates

how the heck could he regain control of his account

One scenario is the hacker gets his password, logs in, posts the pic, and logs out. No problem for Wiener to post something else in a few minutes.

Of course, the real scenario is Wiener did both.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

short man's disease

I call it little man syndrome.

Rick Ballard

He better copyright that pic once he admits it. If he doesn't, it's going to be plastered all over the district from now to the election.

Danube of Thought

I think he's now enough of a laughingstock that higher office is not an option.

clarice Feldman

And really, I was persuaded he and Humma had a real love match. I mean Bill Clinton officiated at the wedding.

Captain Hate

Dammit Mavs. Terry better plan on showing up in the second halves of the rest of the games or be looking into tattoo removal services. Peja looked terrible tonight and really really old.

That's ok; win the next one and then sweep 'em at home. Or, better yet, lose Thursday and run off four in a row just like in 2006. This chess match has just started.

Heat fans are garbage who barely deserve a D league team.

Rick Ballard

He only pulled 55% in '10. The seat hasn't been Republican since 1921 and has very little political value to the Reps but it would make for an amusing race.

Will Obama issue a 'That's not the Weiner I knew." statement on this or will he leave it to Barney Frank?

narciso

Ouch, as a general rule, they're fickle, Captn,then again it usually prevents too much disappointment, that's why the whole gambit
with the stadiums seems so maladroit.

Captain Hate

I mean Bill Clinton officiated at the wedding.

Does that mean he was paired off with a bridesmaid? I can't think of a better guarantee for a dysfunctional marriage.

Rocco

He sure looked flustered tonight and needs to get a grip on himself!

Captain Hate

Of course I wasn't referring to you, narc; but they sounded like they were at a preseason game.

jimmyk

If he can't explain why he was following this lady, and all the others, he's going to have a hard time [sorry] convincing anyone that he was hacked without a full police investigation. Maybe he's still trying to find some staffer willing to take the fall (like John Edwards thought Andrew Young would do).

I'm thinking the CNN folks wanted to give him a chance to clear this up, and gave him a question that he should have been expecting, and had had a day to come up with a plausible answer (even if it was a lie) just to put the story to rest. I'm guessing even they were shocked when he bungled it.

narciso

Speaking of which, does anybody else know how to play this game;

Rocco

And I hope his anti-virus was up to date or at least he wore a rubber glove!

MarkO

Wilt was a force of nature. To compare him to Teddy is just wrong. LeBron couldn't guard Wilt or dunk over him. Only Russ could deal with him and Russ was the GOAT.

MarkO

Come on Fox, grab a rope and get this guy. He'll be all over everyone if he gets away. The other press does not play by these rules.

MayBee

He talks like he is on something.
Too hyper.

Rick Ballard

Jimmyk,

He's acting like there's a Door #2 and Monty Hall is about to launch into 'Johnny, tell them what they've won.'

He's earned every bit of whatever is coming.

Rick Ballard

Jimmyk,

Captain Hate

Mark, did you see Wilt play much? I went to a few games he played in and in warmups he'd be taking set shots from beyond where the 3 point line is now and nail just about all of them. And then miss a bunch of free throws.

He was an incredible physical specimen. To me his most impressive feat was never fouling out of a game. I saw him in a few against the Celtics where they had 5 on him and would start driving to draw the sixth; after having all the shots rejected they figured it would be wise to try to win the game in another manner.

MarkO

I was him play many games on TV, only one in person. No one like him, ever.

MarkO

how did I type "was" for saw? Too late for me. Sorry.

jimmyk

Come on Fox, grab a rope and get this guy.

I think it's ok if Fox lays back while he hangs himself (with CNN's help).

From Yesterday' thread, about war movies, in part, this shows how little they understand
such things:

Dave (in MA)


Debbie Wasserman Schultz on illegal aliens:

... the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries, and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all.
bgates

Debbie Wasserman Schultz on government spending:
...the Republican position is that we should decrease the amount the government is spending, and that in fact we should not raise taxes but simply cut spending until it does not exceed revenue.

on foreign policy:
...the Republican position I've seen is that we should form alliances with countries which share our interests, and that in fact we should be friendlier with them than with countries that are attempting to undermine our position or are actively hostile to us.

I think she's the best RNC spokesman the DNC has ever had.

daddy

That Lee Stranahan second link advised me to watch John Stewart, so I've had him on now for 8 minutes.

What a sophomoric mocking of Sarah Palin. This guy sucks.

If anything pops up on Weiner I'll let you know, but currently its just Stewart being a Jack-Off.

Stephanie

If anything pops up on Weiner

:Jose Jimenez: Oh, I hope not.

daddy

Just finished watching about an 8 minute monolog by John Stewart on Anthony's Weiner.

Stewart whacked Weiner something fierce!

I didn't expect it after that horribly trite and unfunny Palin segment, but Stewart came thru with a few excellent zingers and threw Anthony under the bus and then gently but humorously drove back and forth over Weiner a couple times.

Am sure you will all be seeing it tomorrow. He says no way is that purported picture of Weiner's weiner Weiner's weiner, because Weiner's weiner is not that big. Sez the only thing in that Weiner's weiner photo that reminds him of Weiner's weiner is that they both lean hard to the Left. etc, etc etc.

Stewart actually went more nuts hollering at video of CNN reporters for not doing any reporting whatsoever on this case. And in the video of CNN interviewing Breitbart, Breitbart came off well informed while CNN came off looking like weiners.

Still Stewart never made any mention of CNN's Dick Quest, so I have to wonder who the hell writes his stuff. That one was just sitting there dying to be knocked out of the park. Oh well.

Now on to RedEye in a couple hours.

daveinboca

"Weiner: Why would I even mail a picture of my penis to a girl? I'm gay!

And this creep was jon Stewart, er, Berkowitz's roommate just out of college? How is this Daily Show material? Something to watch for...!

Anyone slip in any Brett Favre jokes, I hope not. Brett was seduced by the NYJets and their loco-machine.

daddy

"It could be the case that Weiner is a victim of a vicious hack attack even if the photo is really of him. Imagine that a hacker got control of Weiner's accounts, found the infamous photo of what is allegedly Weiner's wiener, and Tweeted it out. "

Hey Maybe Ted Stevens was right:


"They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It’s not a big truck. It’s a series of TUBES. And if you don’t understand, those TUBES can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it’s going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that TUBE."

Shame on us for not believing Ted.

Rich Rostrom

Buldge, huh?

Ever read The Butterfly Kid? (Cult-classic SF/hippie parody written in the 1960s)

At one point a character projects a pantheon of oddball gods, including "Buldge, Goddess of Minor Disasters... a kind of accidental fertility figure... whose merest glance could delay a chick's period two weeks."

Ted Stevens

Thank goodness CNN didn't ask Weiner about the Bush Doctrine.


And RedEye's been very harsh on Weiner. One of the panel members wanted to defend Weiner but said its impossible having just seen the CNN interview, so now everybody, even effeminate Bill the Weasel said Weiner's lying and is probably toast. I thought the pseudo-defender was going to try to use the tactic of saying Weiner was baiting the Press, but after watching that video nobody can ever accuse Weiner of being a Master Baiter.


Kevin B

So help a Brit out here. I'm a bit confused over pronunciation.

Is it whiner's weener, weener's whiner, whiner's whiner or weeners weener?

Ta.

henry

Kevin, all of the above at once plus Vienna -- the left is all about multiple truths.

Ralph L,

Saw your correction previous thread - thamks for putting me right. I knew that but for some reason went with speaker since Boggs always seemed to be more powerful then Carl Albert at the time. I was living just outside DC at the time.

Just watched that CNN interview of Weiner. Now that's entertainment.

Janet,

No email in inbox or junk folder.

sbw,

How far is Corning? We would like to go to Glass museum. Also, well aware of Fenimore Museum. It is definitely on agenda.

Talking museums, please feel free to visit ours: www.thelillywhitefamilymuseum.com

If Weiner waned a wanner wiener when he wed a whiner,
Would Weiner wax a winner wanger when he twit a wiener?

daddy,

Knowing your esoteric reading habits once again I am pleased to offer you one of the great book fairs for your choosing. LUN

I love the one that is a history of the Match Industry:)

daddy

"Just watched that CNN interview of Weiner. Now that's entertainment."

You bet Extraneus,

Calling a CNN Reporter "a Jackass" is bound to make him friends with the Media that heretofore has been treating him with kid gloves.

Have had very a fun night watching all the shows and reading a ton of websites on the topic. Almost every Weiner link at Insty is worthwhile.

I think he's in deep kimshi career-wise.

G'nite.

daddy

Thanks, JiB,

Will check the link it out in the morning.

Have a great trip and see if you can get Frederick to make a post or 2. We need to elevate the conversation around this place every once in a while and he's just the young man to do it.

Captain Hate

Whoa, the useful idiots on the Today show are covering this. Maybe Matt Lauer will claim it was his teeny weeny.

matt

might I say that the Congressman seems to be....dangling....

Extraneus

I really enjoyed the way he re-stated the "If I was giving a speech to forty-five thousand people, and someone in the back of the room threw a pie or shouted an insult" schpiel, verbatim, proving that it was pre-rehearsed. I think that was my favorite part. Heh.

matt

has anyone ever seen Weiner's wife and Lady GaGa in the same room? Amazing similarities in just plain weirdness...

Danube of Thought

Hey Anthony--is that a roll of Tums in your skivvies, or are you glad to see us?

Melinda Romanoff

Ex-

If that wasn't a "talking point", I'll eat my hat.

centralcal

I absolutely love this sentence from Andrew Malcom's Top of the Ticket blog:

And there are few things more sweet to Palin and her fervent supporters cheering their TV sets this week than the image of a hungry know-it-all "lamestream media" caravan of 15 or more vehicles traipsing along behind her red-white-and-blue bus enroute to they-know-not-where to do they-know-not-what.

Sweet!

Beware A Weiner

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

The world turns -

Anthony Weiner pisses off the media and Sarah has them eating out of their hands.

And the real poetic justice is that the media hates both positions.

Danube of Thought

Unexpected:

Companies in the U.S. added fewer workers than forecast in May, a sign that job growth is struggling to gain momentum, data from a private report based on payrolls showed today.

Employment increased by 38,000 last month, the smallest increase since September, from a revised 177,000 in April, according to figures from ADP Employer Services. The median estimate in the Bloomberg News survey called for a 175,000 advance for May.

Cecil Turner

I just think it's shameful the way people are snickering--nay, twittering--over the very minor exposure of the unfortunate Congressperson. It's unseemly to get excited over such a small thing.

Melinda Romanoff

DoT-

A. I won my bet. Always good.

B. Global economy is not very healthy. Always bad.

Chinese bailout of municipalities yesterday was a very bad sign, IMO.

Who leaves the EU first? Greece, or Germany? ECB official, this AM, says EU banks are now more "resilient". Really? I believe you are the new Junckers, or, a liar for your own self-preservation.

I'm caught using just a tray at the all-U-Can-eat info buffet, this AM. Too much going on at once.

Side thought: This "Arab Spring" carp also has me wondering about a globally coordinated socialist push to gain control. But the question remains, control of what? And what clock are they using?

Anybody else thinking about this or is it just me, the worrywort?

Mark Folkestad

This place is piled high and deep with Weiner jokes. All the talk of "Weiner hacked" has me suddenly thinking of Lorena Bobbit's improvised operation on her husband. Dunno why.

The Journeys of Frederick

All American Summer Road Trip begins tomorrow at 1200hrs.

Danube of Thought

For any who may not have seen it (I had not until just now), here is the full, delight-filled nine-minute, twenty-one second CNN interview with this obnoxious creep.

Captain Hate

Who leaves the EU first? Greece, or Germany?

How can it not be Germany? They've always been more economically responsible than their "peer" countries (the pre-EU linking of the franc and deutschmark was always a humorous study in contrasts) and other than the leveraged buyout of East Germany hasn't done too many haywire things (although the ridiculous desire to wean themselves of nuclear power shows their capable of periodic lunacy). Who would Greece rattle a tin cup to if they left; the IMF?

This "Arab Spring" carp also has me wondering about a globally coordinated socialist push to gain control. But the question remains, control of what? And what clock are they using?

I think there is a desire for freedom and human rights among many of the countries, particularly among the more educated, but I can't completely dismiss the bad intentions of the usual suspects who prey on chaos and disorder.

Janet - Where Is The Weiner Story?
Captain Hate

obnoxious creep

He really is; I thought Jane characterized him very well but after watching that I felt very unclean. Lysol and steel brush unclean. I'd put protective gloves on if I had to shake hands with that worm.

Rob Crawford

Rob, this is a rare time when I'm taking Ace's side over yours. I think he's doing well just to amp up the attention on it and rub Tony's ugly mug in it. That it's such an immature, childish, lowbrow matter goes right into the Ewok's wheelhouse.

Except that Ace's approach is to stamp his widdle feet and whine about the National Review Online crowd not posting about it and about Rush not thinking its worth his time.

It's lame. If Ace really thinks it's a big story, he should push it without giving a rat's ass whether Rush spends as much time as Ace looking at a guy's junk.

Rob Crawford

I really enjoyed the way he re-stated the "If I was giving a speech to forty-five thousand people, and someone in the back of the room threw a pie or shouted an insult" schpiel, verbatim, proving that it was pre-rehearsed.

Really? He's trying that line?

After the left attacked Palin for a reporter imagining he heard "kill him/them" at a rally? Remember, the Secret Service said it never happened.

Melinda Romanoff

Cap'n-

Recall that around the time of the first "Gaza Relief Cruise", Ayers and Dohrn were making a little speaking tour of the countries involved, discussing the use of social media as a political tool.

Everybody seems to forget this and I think it's way too coincident not to be directly related.

Danube of Thought

Minus 11 at Raz today.

I found out, from another blog, how the Arabs have another date, to commemorate their failure, the Naksa, (June 5th) which is around
the time of the next flotilla, where they and their socialist pals, plan to create a complementary ruckus,

OT, it Simon Maugh is right, it likes QE #, will be underway

Manuel Transmission

Mel, I think Beck has had this nailed for some time. I know a lot of people think he is the weirdo down at the park with the sandwich boards saying "the end is nigh!" But it's kinda like the comments earlier about all the beltway types sneering at Palin and co. Sunni working with Shia? Pfui! Socialists working with AQ? Balderdash! The Credentialed Morons always know better.

Captain Hate

Really Rob? You're defending the clean toga bunch at NRO for thinking this is beneath them? I think that's part of the reason we're in the mess we're in now; because we have too many country clubbers who demand we employ Gloria Vanderbilt/Emily Post manners against the children of the corn who "don't need no steenking rules".

I've criticized Ace for a lot of things in the past but I think he's right to call out the swells whom I usually accuse him of sucking up to. I find it refreshing. And I think he mentioned that Rush is featuring this, although I might be wrong about that.
