I think she is fine, but not only that, she stuck by her husband after he majorly farked up not once, but twice!

And she brings home the bread while dude stays at home spamming his penis shots! Seriously, that makes her crazy hot,

She's got a weird eating disorder look about her.

I made the mistake of reading the article.

David Weigel (the writer) resigned from The Washington Post after some of his emails were leaked.
In response he wrote:

I used to make fun of these people[...]when they tried to explain their downfall, or when they tried to express contrition. And suddenly I was one of them.
I can't imagine ever again writing about someone without manning up to get him or her to comment, or provide more context.
I realized that no one could take the same scrutiny and walk away looking saintly.


And the hen writes shiat like this. What an asshole.

The point of the article is that Huma Abedin is being played up as the long-suffering, hard-working wife who stands by her man, and the truth of the matter is that she's either:
--Playing the media to advance her own political career
--Unbothered by her husband's dalliances
--An abuse victim who can't get out of a bad marriage
--All of the above

The news cycle is trying to paint her as Hilary Clinton during the Lewinski scandal, and there have even been articles about her sense of fashion or how she's worn her hair through this ordeal. It's ridiculous.

In the meantime, Anthony Weiner continues to tell reckless, stupid, unbelievable lies and clearly is used to people letting him off the hook for explaining his actions. He's as deluded as Rod Blagojevich, and destined for a similar fate if he doesn't get out of politics. You would think a guy with a last name like Weiner would be doubly careful to avoid sex scandals, but nope, he doubles down on them.

I think she's quite attractive, but who cares?

That whole article left a bad taste in my mouth. It sounds like it was written by someone who got rejected by her in highschool and wants to take some limp-wristed shots at her now while she's down.
 
2013-07-26 07:57:45 AM
Meh...the only part I found interesting was the link to the article about her "consultant" status with State and her compensation from the various Clinton "charities".

Guess she learned about "public service" from the masters.

"I'm sick of the media making politicians wives into supermodels, when they're clearly sixes at best. I don't need to be told how hot Huma Abedin is. Really?  Maybe it's hot when the wind is blowing in her hair as her husband's coming in last place or another woman."

d23: They sleep in separate rooms at night.  She's there for the political power.


Well, given that she's been Sec. Clinton's right hand for the last five or six years, and he's only been a congressman, that makes sense: it's had to sleep in the same room at night when you're on different continents.
 
2013-07-26 08:03:18 AM
Does Wiener preach that gays shouldn't get married despite his shenanigans? Are the people he's soliciting under aged, some kind of animal, or dead? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then why the fark is this such a big deal?

I spend more time than I should faffing about on the dirtier parts of the internet and I know most other people do too. Aside the incredibly humorous names, I really don't see why people are so wrapped up in this.

He loses this election or, more likely, is forced to drop out: she's gone

He wins the election, and gets a 3rd strike: she's gone

Why am I so confident about this?  Because by then I'll be in the DC area and banging her.

I'm a big Weigel fan, so maybe I'm biased, but to me it seemed like he was holding this up as an example of manufactured media narratives. She's being pushed as some kind of extraordinary women without much to back up the claim.

Similarly, her husband became known as a liberal hero despite not having much of a legislative record and a sketchy past that should make any progressive balk at supporting him. So I guess you can't deny their savvy.
 
2013-07-26 08:09:17 AM
Personal opinion: if your spouse cheats on you once and you don't leave them then sure you're probably hurt but trying to fix the marriage.

If they do it twice and you don't leave then you're, at least tacitly, endorsing the behavior. Victims of spousal abuse are, of course, a different category altogether.

As a parallel to that, someone who cheats once can claim to have made a mistake. Someone who cheats twice isn't going to stop any time soon.

I took it to be a critique of this odd praise she has received, and is receiving again, for staying married to a cynical womanizer.

In "Two Cheers for the beleagured Huma Abedin," Sheila Weller informs us that being a "body man" is gruelling work-OK, sure-and offers this example of Abedin's steely reserve.

What really nailed it for me with Abedin was when, smack in the middle of her husband's sex-texting scandal Part I, two years ago, she came home from a long, multi-Mideast-country foreign trip with Secretary of State Clinton, three or four months pregnant. Clinton's plane arrived at the D.C. airport at around 6 a.m. Jet-lagged, pregnant, scandal-beset, at the end of a gargantuan work trip and a very long plane ride, and with the paparazzi hounding her car, Abedin drove herself to home, right into her parking garage.
Sorry, but what else was she supposed to do? Are we praising her because she didn't run over a paparazzo or pull a Britney Spears and attack one of them with a golf club? For some reason-maybe it's the "wrinkle-free suit"-Abedin gets extraordinary praise for doing the most ordinary of things.

And on.  I've been hearing about Huma's courage, but I just don't get it.   I'm starting to wonder what is mentally wrong with her.  She has no financial need to stay.  Perhaps, she's just as cynical as he is.

her mouth is scary. No wonder Anthony doesn't want to stick his weiner in it.

Theory Of Null: I think she is fine, but not only that, she stuck by her husband after he majorly farked up not once, but twice!


She's a professional political staffer, and worked for the Clintons to boot.

She gives not a single fark for sexual fidelity and is at worst mildly annoyed at her husband for getting caught, I'd wager.  I doubt she thinks of it as a "major fark-up" in the husbanding sense, only in the political sense... which admittedly she's possibly upset about.

Probably true.  She doesn't really care about Weiner's infidelity insofar as it doesn't impact his career and by proxy her career.  The cynical part is playing the media for a bunch of saps with the courageous wife and mother narrative.

I suppose Huma is brave and courageous if you believe in romantic comedy love.

You've just given me a new respect for her, albeit one far from the current narrative.

It's depressing but not at all unusual to hear the same voices that screech about protecting marriage slander and ridicule a woman who has the courage to forgive her husband rather than divorce at the first sign of trouble.

I keep reading these stories hoping that it comes out she actually has this weird kink where her philandering husband is repeatedly shamed on a national scale.  Mainly because I think our obsession with people's (especially politicians) sexual proclivities is so absurd.

Weigel? I always thought he was gay for some reason.  There's a certain... sassiness to his writing, IMO.
 
2013-07-26 08:39:04 AM
What exactly is there to admire about someone who is either a doormat or willing to sign off her dignity for a shot at being the wife of someone with an office instead of pursuing an office herself?

But at least her husband's indiscretions are apparently restricted to online groupies with no real connection to him. Admiration for Hillary is more of a mystery to me. Unlike wiener, bill had a pattern of seeking women at work and using his position as a boss to do this. And Hillary just went along with him, and gets labelled as some feminist icon even though she obviously doesn't give a fark about sexual harassment in the workplace.

timswar: Personal opinion: if your spouse cheats on you once and you don't leave them then sure you're probably hurt but trying to fix the marriage.


Personal opinion: he hasn't actually cheater on her.  From my point of view, this is less severe than getting a lap dance.

Given that he didn't stop after the first time he go caught, he definitely has a problem.

Also: I believe her parents are still married, but teach at colleges in different countries.  So she may have a different perspective on this than you or I.

This is, of course, all speculation. Maybe she's still fuming about his last indiscretions and is just in the marriage for the power and prestige. But seeing as how she didn't abandon him last time, actually started a family with him and is now willing to stay with him through another round of texting scandals...she's either completely off her rocker or she's viewing this from a completely different perspective.

Maybe she has to play the role of devoted wife and mother with the perfect family because the stigma of coming out and saying that monogamy means different things to different people is just too foreign for the average voter to grasp and they'd both be written off as freaks who lack "strong family values".

Who knows?
