I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised that now former Congressman Anthony Weiner did the right thing and leave congress.Of course Mr. Weiner, vaingloryhog to the end, had a rambling press conference to announce his leaving congress.
Mr. Weiner said that he is leaving congress "So my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a new representative and most importantly that my wife and I can continue to heal from the damage I have caused."
Funny though, Mrs Weiner, Huma Abdein, was nowhere to be seen in the debacle of a press conference.
The presser deteriorated when a Howard Stern goon mocked Mr. Weiner with such choice comments as "Are you more than 7 inches?"
Gawd, that was so lovely.
Credit to that goes to Benjy Bronk.
Somehow it is a fitting and humiliating end to a guy that gained his political foothold running a sleazy campaign for New York City council in 1991. That election Mr. Weiner pulled the race card from his Snidely Whiplash hat. He played on racial fears to win the city council seat and eventually parlayed that into a seat for congress.
As a congressman, Mr. Weiner was a ladies man, in his mind, and a hack who loved going on cable news programs.
When he was not on cable news, he would flail around the floor of congress being the attack dog when the Dems needed theatre.
Too bad that they could not keep the leash on this sick puppy.
When the tables were turned and Mr. Weiner was exposed as the cyberperv that he is, he tried to spin it. That his Twitter account was somehow hacked by Andrew Breitbart. As time went on, more gals came to the forefront and the reality was not that Mr. Weiner was hacked. It appears that he was doing the hacking. If you know what I mean.
Some people have expressed that they are sorry about Mr. Weiner and his political demise.
I am not sorry in the least.
When the chips were down, he had no problem being such a liar that he would impinge the integrity of one Mr. Breitbart. Mr. Weiner tried to build a lie that he was the victim of some kind of conspiracy. When all along it was he himself being a cyberperv.
It is a good thing to see some garbage being thrown out of the nation's capital.
