1) Weapons of mass distraction:

This is all ridiculous. The economy is melting down by the day. We are entering a second Great Depression. Why has Weiner-mania been in the headlines for weeks now? Is the media’s goal to distract the masses from seeing the stories that are really important? Perhaps this is why America is in such trouble in the first place. Our minds should be on saving the economy and reversing job losses. Instead, all the media and the masses care about is sex and scandal.

2) Weiner-mania is not about sex:

Weiner-mania is actually not about sex. John Edwards had sex. John Ensign had sex. Mark Sanford had sex. Weiner is just a sex pervert. He is nothing more than a high-tech flasher with an electronic raincoat. Any man that shows his naked body parts to complete strangers has a problem. But a Congressman? Weiner is mentally ill and self-destructive. We don’t want guys like Weiner anywhere near our laws.

3) High school nerd complex:

I’ve diagnosed Weiner’s problem. These sexual issues, perversions and addictions always relate to a nerd who couldn’t get “it” in high school. It bothers them for the rest of their lives. No matter how powerful they become, they can’t stop thinking about high school. They carry low self-esteem with them for the rest of their lives. “The high school nerd complex” ruined Congressman Weiner’s life.

4) Weiner-Spitzer:

Where does Weiner go now? Weiner is qualified for two things. First, he could become head of the International Monetary Fund. He’d fit right in in France. Or he could join Eliot Spitzer at CNN for a new TV show called “Weiner-Spitzer.” It has a nice ring to it!
