TheJoe03: bestie1: Tony and his buddies went out of their way to smear everyone that was even tangentially involved with discussing the first time he got caught.

Well now you're starting to make a decent point.


I won't even try to guess what your age or your life experience is.  When several random 20 year olds say that they are among many other random 20 year olds that a married man is whacking to 5 times a day on the phone to them it raises alarm bells.  Regardless of what you or I do in the privacy of our own home I'm going out on a limb here to assume that you don't take it to that extreme.  

I've known people that are addicted and I've seen what they do.  They lie, they hide things, they steal, they hurt people close to them and they lash out when cornered.  I don't need to wait for it to all play out because I've seen it play out a few times before.  He can't keep it together long enough to run the campaign how the hell can he run NYC?

There is absolutely no such thing as "off the record."  Especially in NY politics.

Alphax: bestie1: Why is the phrase "Weeners" replaced by weeners?

So they call people who do that morons, then they to it. What is that, self-hatred?

Therion: Weiner must have seriously pissed off someone really big in order to get this non-stop Howard Deaning in the press.


Well, Rachel Maddow has been attacking his credibility every chance she gets. She can't be the only one.

TheJoe03: liam76: It is the lying to get what they want, and the lying to cover up what they did.  If you can't see a problem with giving a person who does that lots of power then I give up.

Again, how does that make him different than Clinton? If he covered up some actual political related issue I'd actually give a fark.


When you have a guy who has a proven track record of lying to cover up them getting shiat they want, why would you trust them with more power?

Clinton managed to confine it to taking advantage of interns and underlings, does that mean we should trust anyone who shows a similiar pattern of lying to only abuse their power when it comes to getting their dick wet?

neversubmit: Aristocles: Doctor Funkenstein: Don't get me wrong, what he did was monumentally stupid, but we're going to lose our minds over some dick pics that apparently the chicks who received wanted to see and low grade sexy talk? Alrighty, then. Let the self-righteous indignation at this guy's junk continue unabated, I guess.

Here's why the sexting scandals make him politically anathema:

1. Bad Judgement
2. Wife is not cool with it
3. Opens himself up to be blackmailed


I agree with you on all but the last one. That would be like trying to blackmail a porn star with a sex tape.
 
2013-07-31 08:38:43 AM  

TuteTibiImperes: Morgan shouldn't have apologized.  Weiner's campaign is going down in flames and only a Hail Mary pass could save it.  I think a lot of NYC would buy into a campaign willing to tell it how it is and spew unadulterated stream-of-consciousness outrage.  They could completely turn the story around from Weiner being the guy who lied about sexting to Weiner being the guy who isn't going to sugar coat anything or play politics, he's just going to tell it like it is and do what needs to be done.

They could be like the 'rent is too damn high' guy but with actual governance bona fides.


Except that he's 'confessed' to sexting and being a reformed man about every 6 months. At this point - Weiner's weiner is like the groundhog of the elections. If it sees it's shadow then we're going to have a long election cycle.

I don't know. He's only confessed to sexting and dirty pictures.

On the spectrum of infidelity - is that more or less acceptable than hiking the metaphorical Appalachian trail? Forcing your mistress to get an abortion? Actually having sex?

Another sexting scandal wouldn't hurt him. If he turns out to be far more unfaithful than online infidelity then you'd have a great blackmailing story and it wouldn't take much convincing.
 
2013-07-31 08:49:33 AM  

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.


I wish instead of apologizing, she'd just owned it and said, "Listen, I didn't intend for what I said to be public, but this girl is exactly what I called her, and I stand by it."

That, at least, would show some integrity. And I think if she spun that correctly, she could make quite a career for herself as being outspoken and no-nonsense.

But let's be honest -- the ONLY reason this is news is because it's yet another sign the Weiner campaign is in a nosedive.

She can move on to make custom handbags like Monica Lewinski did (and live off the royalties from the books and interviews)

bestie1: 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.

I don't know if you realize it but that statement makes you sound like a douche.  Maybe it was just an observation but it sounds really petty.


Why petty? Put yourself in a hiring managers position. You have two candidates with equal qualifications, and neither one sexy enough to fark up the office politics. But one of them once talked in the press about her former employer. Which one would YOU hire? I wouldn't get near her as an employee for me once I saw that - it shows she has extremely poor judgment, and I only hire people with common sense and initiative.

/so...she doesn't have 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
//FB & twitter are great at weeding out the morons
///both women in the article qualify
 
2013-07-31 09:00:05 AM  
I hope that girl is able to parlay her tell all into a spot on Fox News because she's never working in politics again. The fact that she very publicly violated an NDA is probably enough to get her blacklisted from most corporate jobs as well.

In short, very poor long term planning.

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.


I don't know.

She'll write a book and do a few interviews as part of her contract to sell copies of said book.

She will interview well enough to land a contract on a network talking politics and will become the poster child for a woman's rights cause. Eventually this will turn into lobbying.

TheJoe03: Why is political news in the US such a joke? Every big story (outside of tragedies and disasters) seems so trivial (and they'll even turn that stuff into a bunch of trivial bullshiat). Who cares who this politician schmuck sexted or sent dick pics to, how about his policies? He's trying to be mayor of the biggest city in the US and all anyone cares about is his sex life. It's funny but it doesn't matter.

/I guess it's a story since it's funny but I don't even watch TV news and I've heard way too much about this guy's dick.


The Puritanical beginnings of this country still resonate with a large part of the population today, making anything related to a celebrity's sex life...and don;t for a second think that politicians aren't "celebrities". It's really weird, going back to Clinton. Who cared if he got his dick sucked? He was kicking ass at his job! So maybe Weiner just needed to be better as his job.

Which is why I said similiar.


On the spectrum of infidelity - is that more or less acceptable than hiking the metaphorical Appalachian trail? Forcing your mistress to get an abortion? Actually having sex?

Far, far more.
But in my book either is a reason not to trust a person with more power.

Another sexting scandal wouldn't hurt him. If he turns out to be far more unfaithful than online infidelity then you'd have a great blackmailing story and it wouldn't take much convincing.

I disagree.


I knew very little of Weiner before this scandal broke. All of it I liked.
Still wouldn't trust him.
If this was a senate campaign where it was him or a republican, I would probably go with him. But that isn't the choice in NYC now.

Therion: Weiner must have seriously pissed off someone really big in order to get this non-stop Howard Deaning in the press.


Howard Deaning? Dean made a goofy yell and was crucified for it. Weiner can't stop sexting and taking pictures of his junk. He left office for it the first time he was caught, and when he ran for office again, he decided to unwrap his junk for his new round of sexting. The guy lacks discretion and judgement. The left-wing press wants him to stay away from elected office for good reason.

Despite what Morgan described as Nuzzi's initial enthusiasm, Morgan claimed her job performance left much to be desired:

"She sucked."


I'd have thought Carlos Danger would have highly approved of that. Oh well - I guess she can go work at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

From the intern's article:

There was the time when he called his 20 interns into a cramped office, and boasted that if we told him our names and one fact about ourselves, he could correctly identify all of us. He went around the room, then went back to the first intern, and tried to remember her name.

"Monica," he said. No, it was Stephanie.
Then he called me "Monica." Wrong again.


That's the joke dot jpg

That's what I was thinking.  Pretty much anyone giving interviewing advice says one of the worst things you can do is to trash your old employer, and she just did that in a very public way.  I have to imagine political campaigns, where controlling the message and PR trump all, would be particularly sensitive to taking someone on who has a history of publicly airing grievances.

Walker: Sydney Leathers


I heard some of the Howard Stern interview she gave yesterday and that woman is a skank. There's no other way to put it. She sexted with him, masturbated on the phone with him, then mocked him and gave a tell all for money while calling him names throughout the interview. She finished by admitting that she was going to do a photoshoot in front of his house, record a song called "Weinerizer" with the same producer who worked with Tan Mom, and was considering doing porn.

Weiner is a moron and a pervert, but this woman is even worse. She betrayed him and did it in the most trashy, undignified way possible.
