I think he should have fully embraced the Carlos Danger for Mayor campaign.

A very expensive act of public masturbation, indeed.
 
2013-09-13 09:14:56 AM  
Huh?  I'm confused.  His original idea was sending texts of his staff?

Yes, but only went with one member in the end

Vienna called. They want your ancestors to move retroactively to Frankfurt.

He should have done John Oliver's dance out on to the stage.  It couldn't have hurt.

Weiner is certifiably insane. Which would make him a great mayor for NYC, the Big Apple, the town so nice they named it twice, where the Bronx is up and the Battery's down.

Politicians never get the joke they should be using instead of being the joke that they are.
 
2013-09-13 10:43:40 AM  
I guess there really is such a thing as bad publicity sometimes.
 
2013-09-13 10:54:36 AM  
Good thing this sociopath lost, and some other sociopath won.
 
2013-09-13 10:55:43 AM  
It's clear Weiner has lost his head.

Weiner sounds more like a narcissist than a sociopath.  But similar.  =)

SO glad this idiot lost
Waiting for his wife to hit the bricks and do a tell-all.
I'm no fan of new york
but maybe they're starting to show signs of intelligence

What is THAT?!?
 
2013-09-13 11:39:15 AM  
so if he won 10% of the votes at a cost of $74 dollars a vote somehow that is better? his ROI may look better but he would still have lost.

I don't know, lots of decisions that are impulsive and self-destructive in the long term, inability to maintain a long term relationship, manipulativeness, compulsive lying, power-seeking behavior?  That's pretty sociopathic.
 
2013-09-13 11:50:47 AM  
I really don't give two shiats about his sexting, that's something for his wife to worry about. It's everything else he says that makes me think he's an idiot.

Wiener:  $174 x 81,874 votes = 4.7 million spent

de Blasio:  $20 x 260,473 votes = 5.2 million spent

More money = electoral success.
 
2013-09-13 11:52:55 AM  
He should try to find another way to find redemption.
 
2013-09-13 12:03:24 PM  
Boehners and Weiners and Dicks, oh my!

There seems to be a spate of phallic named men in politics over the last decade or so...

Actually, all this money in politics for advertising is a clever rouse by campaign managers and advertising agencies to make money. If something is really good it doesn't need to advertise. Same for a statesman.

So is his wife back on the market?
 
2013-09-13 01:01:27 PM  
The only reason he stayed in the race was so he could spend the donations. I'm sure it was all spent on the campaign.
 
2013-09-13 01:28:40 PM  
Oh subby... like any woman in her right mind would open a text from him.

God, I hate this country.

If you've been following my musings for a long time, you know that I don't believe money buys votes.

Okay, I will start my campaign for president today.
 
2013-09-13 02:23:37 PM  
My kids don't follow politics.  And even THEY know who Weiner is.  And even THEY laughed when they heard he lost the primary.  My son (14) basically said, "What a tool.  How could he have thought he had a chance?!"

The reason I point out the bit about my kids is - THIS is why he is considered such a delusional bum.  His antics were so well known that even the kids are aware of it.
 
2013-09-13 02:36:31 PM  
Apparently he didn't provide the stiff competition we were expecting.
 
2013-09-13 02:37:00 PM  
He needs to embrace the weiner. Obviously by his decisions he wants to live life a certain way. Then do it. Man up.
 
2013-09-13 03:31:45 PM  
$148 per vote? Good thing for him that he didn't get more!

/try the veal
 
2013-09-13 03:32:25 PM  
Well I'm sure he can switch to doing porn now. Or he could be on big brother or the amazing race.
 
2013-09-13 03:42:24 PM  
article is kind of confusing, was that 148 for each vote he received or 148 for each vote cast?
 
2013-09-13 04:19:25 PM  
"the candidate who spent the most money per vote got the least votes. "

How can a person this dumb even form a sentence?
