(New York Daily News)   Anthony Weiner gets his sexting scandal off the front page by: a) ignoring it, b) getting the media to focus on his ideas for NYC or, c) calling a 69-year-old mayoral rival "grandpa" before a forum on senior issues   (nydailynews.com) divider line 60

See...thing is, Anthony, McDonald has no control over his age.
 
2013-08-07 09:02:02 AM  
But what the Dailiy News isn't telling you, is that when Weiner called the guy Grandpa it was prefaced by "World's Best" and was printed on a cotton t-shirt.
 
2013-08-07 09:07:08 AM  
How does Weiner still have supporters?  He seems like a terrible person, a shiatty representative, and just an all around...dick.

Cocaine? Whatever his problem is, he should drop out and work on getting his shiat together.

I'm starting to think his penis is running the show.  Like in the stories where ventriloquist's dummy becomes the dominant in a split personality.

Yeah, Anthony, your sexting isn't necessarily what's gonna lose you the race.  Your lack of professionalism will.

I seriously don't understand how he hasn't been shamed right off the face of the Earth at this point.  He's almost like a political Amanda Bynes or something.

I was wondering if you were leading to "meds" and I was going to agree with you.

If I had someone calling me a pervert and creep to my face three times a week I'd have something to say to him that was a little more blue than "grandpa"

McDonald, a Republican, took offense when Weiner greeted him with a tap on the chest.

"I said, keep your hands to yourself. ... Don't put your hands on me ever again," McDonald said in the confrontation, caught on camera by NY1.

"What's going to happen if I do?" Weiner taunted in response. "You a tough guy now?"


What is this guy, 12?

I am at a total loss, too. The New Yorkers I know think he's an idiot, so maybe some New York FARKers can enlighten us. Seriously, I'm not trying to start a flame war or an argument. I have no dog in that fight. I just want to know why he still has support.
 
2013-08-07 10:14:37 AM  
Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that might've been the nail in his campaign's coffin.

Thing is, Weiner was an excellent Congressman and has some good ideas for the city, like revamping the Access-A-Ride system and putting cell phone access in subway stations.  But I can't support him because his penis problem will always be the sideshow and some crackpot Republican like Katzemetidas can ride into office on it.  Can't take that chance.

I'm expecting an attempt at a quiet divorce filing after this election. It's one thing to be married to a philanderer, but it's quite another to be married to a moron.
 
2013-08-07 10:25:42 AM  
In Weiners defence he stopped thinking and went into default mode upon hearing "69".

At an AARP forum?  Are you his campaign manager?

There are some people who don't care if he sends dick pics out and he has name recognition above the other candidates.

Diogenes: At an AARP forum?  Are you his campaign manager?


No, but the exchange in question was not heard by the audience, it was barely picked up by a hot mic from the TV crew, and the old dude in question spent the event talking about how his 10 year old granddaughter asked him why he's not sending pictures of his junk out to women on the internet. This is more a media story, than an actual story because lets face it, Wiener sells papers.

Because there's finally a liberal politician on the front page who's a douche, and Fark loves its BSABSVR threads.

We haven't really had one of these since John Edwards so people are gonna milk it.
 
2013-08-07 10:51:37 AM  
Does he even have a campaign manager left? Too bad Wiener doesn't understand it's time to stop being a dick. Stick a fork in him. He's a weenie roast.

I saw him on the news this morning, and I have to say, what an asshole. If I had to choose between McDonald and Weiner, I'd probably vote for Weiner. Either that, or move to Long Island.

I heard that exchange too.  I wished Weiner had said "Really?  Your 10 year old granddaughter asked why you don't send pics of your penis?  Smells like bullshiat to me."

He's bound to do even more hilariously dumb shiat and everyone loves the entertainment.

Man, progressive or not, this guy is just a total clown.

I've never seen a public official with LESS good-decision-making ability than this twit.  And that's including Republicans.
 
2013-08-07 11:29:45 AM  
I don't care what he does in (what should be) his personal time. He's one of the few influential Dems with a backbone. He'd be excellent.

Yes, yes, he also has a frontbone.

Trust me, he's far worse than you realize, I lived in his district until he resigned, and trust me he's far worse than you think. he only won because it was a 3;1 dem:rep district with many people just voting party lines, and twice he ran unopposed.  He is so bad, I hope he never wins another election again (and trust me I already regret voting for back in 2008, I got my brain and voted for the other guy in 2010, just because I loath the man)

So vote Republican, a party that thinks that rape is okay and doesn't appeal to any rational person under 65.
 
2013-08-07 12:32:49 PM  
I find it alarming that the Green Party candidate was dragged out! That shouldn't happen in America. We have multiple parties for a reason and if your only choice is Republican and Democrat you don't have a real choice. I was a member of the Peace and Freedom Party when I lived in California. How many have even heard of it? Media and private groups are orchestrating elections to serve their agendas and everyone is locked out.

Weiner is ugly inside and out. His wife should run away before he drags her down with him.
