Therion: Weiner must have seriously pissed off someone really big in order to get this non-stop Howard Deaning in the press.
TuteTibiImperes: Morgan shouldn't have apologized.
Somacandra: TuteTibiImperes: Morgan shouldn't have apologized.That may have been for her own legal protection, rather than for the campaign. I'm not a lawyer, but calling a non-public figure a "slutbag" in public media might qualify as defamation in some places.
mcnguyen: Is Weiner's campaign manager a 15-year-old girl? Those quotes were painful to read.
gaspode: That said, it is extremely obvious the other woman pretended to intern for the campaign in order to write the stories
TuteTibiImperes: She has a fat chance of ever working in politics again, or for that matter anywhere she might be privy to sensitive information, after going public like that.
Gulper Eel: TuteTibiImperes: She has a fat chance of ever working in politics again, or for that matter anywhere she might be privy to sensitive information, after going public like that.You don't know New York politics very well. At all.This is where the state assembly speaker's chief lawyer got probation for sexual misconduct after plea bargaining down from a rape charge, with many strings pulled on his behalf - and not only did the speaker get the taxpayers to cover the settlement with the victim, the rapey guy bounced right into a lobbying gig and now he's a principal at one of the biggest lobbying firms in Albany.Which means he maintained his connections at top levels of state government all along.And the victim? She's the one who has no shot at government work, because she talked.The bottom line in New York is that you can screw up over and over, you can be corrupt, you can even sexually assault somebody...and you'll still land on your feet, and then some if you're in the good graces of the right people. Long as you don't call out the bosses you're golden.
Gosling: 'Anthony, why did you get into politics?''For the men.''For the... for the MEN?''For the D.'
Harry_Seldon: Not one person is going to have any sympathy for her with this shot.[talkingpointsmemo.com image 320x240]
Wyalt Derp: Just pull out, Weiner. You're in a sticky situation and it's only going to have a messy climax.
gilgigamesh: I think that was his point. He was referring to the "intern".
