Liberals going to bat for Weiner
Rep. Anthony Weiner had a rather notorious meltdown over the past week. Faced with accusations of sending lewd pics to women, he held a rather surreal, bizarre, and most definitely deceptive series of “interviews”.
First question that needs to be asked before I go any further:
I know hindsight’s 20/20. I know a lot of people will answer that they never did believe him now, when they probably did before. But, the bottom line was his “interviews” were so amazingly evasize and contrived that no one really believed him.
So, imagine everyone’s surprise last night when, faced with evidence from multiple, sometimes antagonistic sources, Weiner caved and confessed to doing it with at least six women.
There is one woman on Earth who still defends him tho.
I really have to quote her to make sure people realize the profoundness of Walters’ statement:
First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture,” Walters said. “This is my theory – this doesn’t mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who a lot of us know, who the chief of staff to Hillary Clinton and she travels a lot. And it may be that he took that picture and sent it to his wife to say this is how much I miss you. That’s possible.”
Man, does she really believe that? Do you think she actually does?
According to Breitbart, there’s a lot more, much worse, to this story. I don’t doubt for one second Breitbart will hold back on him. Maybe Barbara Walters does for some bizarro reason. Most likely, due to her friendship with the Weiners, she’s in classic full-blown denial. I mean think about it Babs, even Nancy Pelosi is now demanding an ethics probe. For Nancy to diss on a Democrat, they had to be toast already.
My take, the guy’s your typical internet stalker getting his jollies on the side via digital gratifcation. The six women so far are just the tip of the iceberg. This is gonna get real ugly before it goes away. Rather than doing the honorable thing like Chris Lee did and resign, Weiner has already announced he’s not resigning and intends to fight this, and embarrass his district mercilessly until he’s gone.
Where it will get real ugly, real fast, IMO, is IF he hangs around, it’s gonna make that Obama “CHANGE you can believe in” campaign slogan seem like a really embarrassing farce. And if Obama’s peeps do what they truly need to do, I really do see another Blago moment occurring. This guy just doesn’t strike me as being discreet in any shape or fashion.
But, through it all, the one thing he can count on is Barbara Walters propping him up I suppose.
( Surreal moment #2 of this whole thing, Joy Behar defending Sarah Palin. Gag me with a flipping spoon! )
