It’s a sign of the times that I’m actually relieved to see Anthony Weiner back in the headlines. Finally, a story I understand. Something I can wrap my head around. Maybe I should rephrase that.
Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former New York congressman and estranged husband of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, is expected to plead guilty today to a single count of transferring obscene material to a minor.
Sure, he’s guilty of that. But at the same time, he’s also responsible for keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House. If not for Carlos Danger, we wouldn’t all be talking about James Comey right now. If Weiner had been able to control his, um… desires, today his wife would have a job and Donald Trump would be the one wandering around in the woods.
Never forget that our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left tried to blame Andrew Breitbart for this creep’s behavior. Now they want to blame James Comey for investigating it. (That is, when they can make up their minds whether Comey is a hero or a villain. It seems to change depending on whether they’re getting what they want.)
I’m sure Weiner will only get a slap on the, um… wrist. But knowing the damage he’s done to his precious Democratic Party is punishment enough. Well, that and giving him five minutes alone in a soundproofed room with that girl’s father.
P.S. Hey, whatever happened to the mystery brunette? The one he got caught sexting with before the law finally stepped in? I ask out of professional curiosity, of course.
P.P.S. Remember when Rachel Maddow went to the wall for this guy? Go Team Blue!
And then there was this genius:
