Ten Hut!

This sitting member is not a stand up guy.
==========

It's all about me, me, me, and I'm not even here.

I'm a little amused at how easily Weiner seems to be satisfied by what I would call a very inadequate personal interaction.

Is everything about him so half real?

Who're you talking to? (heh, waving)

Hitch has written three fab articles IIRC in the past two days. Please ==may he outlive his prognosis by many years.

centralcal

Ditto, Clarice's remarks.

He has been at the top of his game this week.

Irony 'it's what's for lunch'

Wow, late as usual...

but this story at PJMedia linking to the NYPost says there is evidence that Weiner was trying to coach the Porn Starlet how to lie for him. Weiner twists and turns: He tried to get the porn star to lie.

MayBee

I posted this at Patterico, but I'll post it here to follow up on daddy's post.

Look at the statement Weiner's PR firm was concocting for the porn star, and compare it to the statement made by the college girl:

From TMZ:

On June 2, Weiner sent Lee a proposed statement she could give to
the press: “I have nothing to do with the situation involving Rep Weiner. I follow his twitter feed. And for a brief time he followed me. Much has been made of the fact that I have posted about my admiration for Rep Weiner and his politics. All I can say about that is that I’m a fan of his. Rep. Weiner sent me one short direct message thanking me for following him. I have never met Rep. Weiner and he has never sent me anything innappopriate (sic) …”

From The Coed:

I am a 21-year-old college student from Seattle. I have never met Congressman Weiner, though I am a fan. I go to school in Bellingham where I spend all of my time; I’ve never been to New York or to DC. The point I am trying to make is that, contrary to the impression that I apparently gave from my tweet, I am not his girlfriend. Nor am I the wife, girlfriend or mistress of Barack Obama, Ray Allen or Cristiano Ronaldo, despite the fact that I have made similar assertions about them via Twitter.

There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me.

After scouring the loony lefty bowels of the Internet last night on WeinerGate I came to see this interesting bit of schizophrenia from the nuttiest Lefty True Believers:

1) Righties are absurd when they trot out the canard that Weiner should resign because this could leave Weiner open to BlackMail.

2) The only reason the innocent Weiner confessed to this was because he was successfully Blackmailed by Breitbart to confess.

MayBee

Brilliant, daddy!

Rocco

Breitbart still has the trump card and he should threaten to use it the next time they smear Clarence Thomas!

Clarice

Yeah, MayBee, as if the dumbbells twittering with Weiner were smart enough to come up with those disclaimers on their own when they couldn't find the delete button.

narciso

'Would you believe' he was this stupid:

Clarice

HEH, narciso. Priceless. Ditto, daddy!

MayBee

If nothing else, Twitter and Facebook could have blackmailed him, no? They can see all!

narciso

Too many coincidences, 'don't you think'

According to PM Tatler, Spirit Airlines is running a promotion

"Have you seen our Weiner?
And the Democrats are really going keep this continual joke around?

http://pajamasmedia.com/tatler/2011/06/07/spirit-airlines-asks-have-you-seen-our-weiner/
--------------------------------------------PM Tatler is also reporting that the Obama Admin has no authority to issue the waivers that they have been giving to their friends.

owner of the pudenda himself

Am I the only one having to look up pudenda? Hitchens. Teaching while tearing down.

narciso

I think context, covers a lot of ground in that statement,

Sue

Well, yeah, but does it mean a particular type or is it just a general term? I had to look it up. It would have driven me batty not knowing the exact definition of pudenda.

Captain Hate

Thank God the Taiwanese are still on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEwIkjPDudw&feature=player_embedded

daddy

Just thought I'd mention this hypocrisy:

Weiner previously said he didn't call the FBI or ask for a Congressional Investigation because he "didn't want to waste valuable Taxpayer money".

But now Weiner welcomes a multimillion dollar Taxpayer funded Congressional Ethics Investigation as an alternative to him resigning.

Wish somebody higher up in the Media would point out how quick Weiner is to toss concern about valuable Taxpayer Funds under the bus.

fdcol63

Liberal hypocrite.

Redundant.

daddy

Dennis Miller just made an interesting point worth thinking about.

He sez he thinks the Dem Leadership are concerned that they have to handle Weiner now with kid gloves. Dennis thinks Weiner was such a rabid valuable attack dog-bombthrower for the Dem's, that he was allowed in on all the top meetings and strategy sessions and therefore he knows where all the Dem dirty secrets and laundry are buried, and so they are worried that this obviously wacko creep might loudly go off the reservation if they completely abandon him.

daddy

Just made it to actually reading the comments.

Great point MayBee about the coaching letter. And the Verum Serum. And Narciso. And Jib.

In fact great points by everyone as usual:)

And man, don't you just love the Taiwanese animators when they are on a roll? Killer!

Porchlight

daddy,

Weiner knows where a lot of bodies are buried via his Clinton associations, too.

OT: Daddy you will like this, I think:

A dictionary of a dead language not used for two millenia has finally been completed after academics spent 90 years painstakingly deciphering ancient words scrawled on clay and stone tablets.

As decades came and went generations of scholars travelled from across the world to the University of Chicago to work on the monumental Chicago Assyrian Dictionary project.

It is now officially complete and contains 21 volumes devoted to Akkadian, a Semitic language with several dialects including Assyrian, that endured between 2500 BC and AD 100 and was recorded on tablets in Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.

[...]

During their marathon academic quest the Chicago scholars battled problems with the ancient Assyrian lack of punctuation, and the propensity of the tablets to crumble. They were joined at various times by experts from Vienna, Paris, Copenhagen, Jerusalem, Berlin, Helsinki, Baghdad and London. Martha Roth, the dictionary’s current editor, spent 32 years on it, four years of that working on a single word.

Jack is Back!

Sara,

You just described Obama's mother.

narciso

There's no Rosetta key, for this dead language.

daddy

Cool Sara.

Thanks for posting that Link. Very interesting.
