Anthony Weiner probably won’t send anybody else pics of his penis, unless his marriage runs into more problems

These things happen, don’t they, guys? You have a fight with your wife, you’re all stressed out, you take a picture of your penis and show it to a 22-year-old girl you met online… We’ve all been there, right?

NY Post (of course):

Anthony Weiner came up with an extraordinary excuse yesterday to explain why he went back to sexting after supposedly kicking the habit — he was suffering from marital woes.

In a startling e-mail letter sent to rally campaign supporters, Weiner said he sought hot-blooded female consolation on the Internet when he and his wife, Huma Abedin, hit a rocky patch in their relationship last summer.

At the time, Weiner had been out of Congress for a year, having resigned in disgrace, and was giving interviews with his wife at his side claiming he was cured.

Well, he was cured. He is! Now he just has, y’know, relapses. Whenever he feels like it.

Another important detail:

TheDirty.com editor Nik Richie described Weiner as a “sexual predator” who immediately “lured” the young woman into online sex…

“Anthony Weiner was not good at phone sex,” said Richie, quoting [Sydney] Leathers. “[He] would orgasm in 30 seconds.”

Seems to me, this just speaks to his qualifications to be mayor. Anthony Weiner is a problem-solver. He doesn’t mess around. Well, okay, he does mess around, but the point is that he finds out what the problem is and he handles it, quickly and efficiently. And in this case, literally.

Anthony Weiner for Mayor of New York City!

We want Weiner!
We want Weiner!
We want Weiner!
Everybody!
We want Weiner!

Come on, you guys. This is gonna be so fun.

Update: Roger L. Simon on the Democratic Party’s war on women. Hey, it’s not like Anthony Weiner said he has binders full of women. Quit using Weiner’s minor indiscretions to cover for Romney’s misogyny, you teabaggers!

Update: Charlie Rangel feels really, really bad for Huma Abedin. Yeah, she’s in a bind. If she wants the money and the power, she has to stand by a guy who humiliates her over and over. But she’ll be okay. She learned a lot from Hillary.

Update: The Huma Unmentionables.

Update: The NYT says, “Many New York Women Are Baffled at Loyalty Shown by Weiner’s Wife.” That’s weird. Just last April, the NYT helped Weiner kick off his mayoral campaign with a ridiculous 8,500-word puff piece. Now they’re turning on him, just because he did what we all knew he was going to do? For shame, NYT!

Update: Weiner shrivels. In the polls, that is. Don’t worry, he’ll recover. He can always get it back up. Oh, and he was also perving out with at least two other women at the same time. Which just proves he can multitask! Another mayoral skill set.
