In the pre-internet days, he'd just be a street corner flasher in a trench coat.

This is not an argument against modern communications or transparency.

why doesn't he go get a real job & leave politicing to the closeted tards?

I want to stuff him and Ted Cruz in a rocket and send them off to the sun. Way to be an out of office Democrat who should be out of the public eye and yet you're way too narcissistic and generally egotistical to fade into obscurity, and you're too stupid to actually see that'd be the best for you Weiner.

I really didn't need the mental image of Adlai Stevenson's penis.

F*ck you, Subby. F*ck you with a rake.

In 1855 he would have sent a description of his junk via Morse Code.

Honestly, Weiner made a huge mistake resigning from the house.
In the view of what other members of congress has done a little sexting is pretty much nothing; I have a very hard time getting my rage on with that behavior.

Although he is a bit of a douchebag, come to think of it he should have run for senate...

Sidenote, I read the headline as:

"Anthony Weiner says he'd have won oral election if it was 1955 "

vote by mouth?
 
2013-10-17 01:28:41 PM
You might also have won that election if you didn't take pictures of your dick and send them to people other than your wife. Having the sense not to go by the pseudonym "Carlos Danger" while doing so would have also been a big help. Jackass.
 
2013-10-17 01:29:04 PM
I still think this guy has a humiliation fetish and all this attention and degradation from the public and the press is what's getting him off. Just like Rafi and Dirty Randy, he has very specific fetishes.

He certainly doesn't know that he should basically shut up and go away for a few years, does he?

It's almost criminal how irresponsible he's acting, even after the fact.

I think it's a good thing that he got busted TWICE before he got into office.  It's one thing to have a campaign sunk by your own stupidity, it's something else entirely to be forced to 'resign' from office because you got busted after you got elected.

He's not entirely wrong, but I don't see how it matters in the slightest.  We don't live in 1955, and he knew damn well what the modern world is like, and that this would quite possibly get out.  I don't even know that the first offense should even be a major public issue, but the second time is another story.  Doing it again, after being busted the first time, shows massive stupidity and terrible impulse control, both traits that should be of enormous concern to voters.  That his response to his own screw-up is to blame the rest of the world for catching him in action reflects even worse on him.

What a phenomenally stupid thing to say, even if you believe it and even if it happened to be kind a true.
 
2013-10-17 01:40:13 PM
The sad thing is, he was actually a pretty good Congressman. Who can forget his shaming his peers (with some help from Jon Stewart) into finally giving decent benefits to 9/11 First Responders?

That's probably true. Also highly irrelevant.
 
2013-10-17 01:48:44 PM
Sorry, my appropriately-named friend, but I don't think so. Yes, the Internet has been your great enabler, and so an environment where it didn't exist could indeed remove the biggest obstacle you faced in this last election.

But a long time ago -longer ago than this election, and I suspect longer ago than even your political career- you faced a choice. You could make the change and do what's right, or you could find an enabler for your nonconsensual jollies. The way you've handled this whole thing does not make me confident that you'd have chosen differently. More likely, I think, is that you'd have just found another enabler. Flashing wouldn't even be all that different from what you actually did, or maybe you'd have taken up peeping instead. Or maybe you'd have become a subway-groper, or gone down even darker paths.

Anything, I think, other than acknowledging your need to grow. That first time you faced that choice is not the only time you faced it, yet you kept taking the easy path out. I see no reason that you won't do so again. But that is your own problem, and nobody else's. Come back when you are strong enough to know just how weak you are.

It isn't the Muslim part that would've been a problem. People didn't really hate Muslims back then.

The Jew part? Well, we'll have to have him thoroughly checked out for any trace of Communist sympathies or ties.

So he laments the creation of the Internet, not sending pictures of his junk to a woman he met online. That's some really good reasoning you're showing there, Mr Weiner.

lots of jews winning elections in 1955?

don't really know, but seems to me like probably not so much, not without changing their names at least

Considering the GOP outrage at JFK being a catholic and having the nerve to run for president five years later, I would say not so many

Yeah, but there's a lot of Christians to this day who hate Jews.  Back in the 50's it was more socially acceptable to be that way.  Hell, even in the 2000's you still hear about private clubs that just started letting in Jews/women/blacks/etc.

I remember when he made that fun speech about the GOP "saving us from the threat of Sesame Street" or however he put it.  Now he's such a complete dickwad.


Well, I guess he always was.  But it was fun while it lasted.

lacrossestar83: What if he and his wife are just in an open relationship?


His M.O. is to send the pics out either unsolicited or to women who have already said that they don't want him to do it. Even if he and his wife are in an open relationship, the nonconsensual aspect of what he does would still be a problem.
 
2013-10-17 05:34:49 PM
I'm not sure if "I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids" is a strong defense of one's actions/image.
