Weiner’s not up for it

Anthony Weiner isn’t up for running for mayor of New York, that is. Get it? I made it sound like something else, because his name is Weiner and he sends women pictures of his erect penis.

Anyhow. I was looking forward to Weiner returning to political life, but according to CBS News, bored headline-writers everywhere will have to wait a while longer:

Despite recent talk of a possible political reemergence, former New York congressman Anthony Weiner insists he has no political comeback planned – at least for the moment…

Asked about a possible mayoral bid earlier this week, Weiner told the Wall Street Journal, “It’s a clown story, bro.”

(Get it? Weiner is hip to the young people!)

And in a recent interview with People Magazine, slated to hit newsstands Friday, Weiner dismissed the notion that he’s eying outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s job.

“I can’t say absolutely that I will never run for public office again, but I’m very happy in my present life. I’m not doing anything to plan a campaign,” Weiner told People.

Straight from the Weiner’s mouth. Of course, he also said this a little over a year ago:

But maybe this time he’s telling the truth.

God, I hope not!

P.S. Eliot Spitzer: “Obviously, I’m in a difficult position to talk about this.”
