“My Weiner has a first name, it’s M-A-Y-O-R…”

He’s tanned, rested, and we have photographic proof that he’s ready. Are you ready, New York?

NY Post:

Anthony Weiner’s not shrinking* from elected office.

The disgraced former congressman — who’s sitting on a $4.5 million campaign war chest — is mulling a bid for citywide office next year and “seriously considering” a mayoral run, multiple sources told The Post.

The cocky** pol is also open to the post of public advocate as a backup plan, said sources, who described the Queens Democrat as “desperate” to get back into politics…

“I’ve heard he is seriously thinking about getting into a citywide race in 2013 and would like it to be mayor,” said a source with ties to Weiner. “In his mind, he’s trying to figure out how to run for mayor.”

He’s reached out to politicos to “talk about the landscape,” said a former staffer.

Well, he’s definitely an expert in landscaping. Er, I mean manscaping.

Please tell me you wouldn’t watch a debate between Anthony Weiner and Alec Baldwin. Dude, I would buy that on Blu-Ray.

Returning to public life is fine, but I won’t consider him “back” until he returns to Twitter. It’s been over a year:


I know, right? This guy is the best!

*Get it?
**No, seriously, do you understand the reference?
