FTFA: Weiner's shouting match with the voter was not his first heated moment of this mayoral campaign. In August, he got into another intense exchange with Republican candidate George McDonald at a debate. He has also been dogged by stories of his "intensity," including allegations he once threw a salad at a wall after getting upset with a staffer during his time in Congress.

That is not what is meant by "tossed the salad of a staffer".

TheDumbBlonde: I don't know who her parents are and quite frankly I don't care, but what is 'vile and racist' about 'arab'?

Go to a Korean person and call them "Japanese" for maximum lulz.

Headso: heh, I can't believe someone who is on record as supporting a philanderer has the lack of shame to come in here and make fun of wiener supporters. But, that's republicans for ya...

It depends on the options. Democracy doesn't always allows us to pick the best candidate. I didn't support Sanford in the primary. I was against him running. But when he won it, he was the best for the job. Anyone supporting Weiner in the primary though is really not thinking clearly.

THX 1138: Agreed. I really liked his approach and passion toward his role in government. It really stood out among the bland masses. Too bad he turned out to be a dick in his personal life.

That's why people love me, I'm a nice guy in real life but I'm passionate about politics.

Rwa2play: And that automatically disqualifies you from judging Weiner. When did Weiner skip out on his duties to serve his constituency to get his rocks off?

When has Weiner ever declined to get his rocks off? Apparently any woman who was willing he'd throw some cock pics at her.

js34603: Which has nothing to do with him being absolutely in the right here. I don't care what he's done in his political career, he's got the right to defend his wife from insults hurled by random dbag in a deli.

What Weiner said:

Man:"You're a real scumbag, Anthony." 

Weiner:"Wow, very nice. Very nice. That's a charming guy right there."

Man:"You're married to an Arab."

Weiner:"That's very nice, in front of children you use that language."

Man: You have a nerve to even walk around in public-

Weiner: Oh yeah, and you're a perfect person?

Man: I'm not perfect, but I didn't do what you did.

Weiner: You're my judge? You're my judge? What rabbi taught you that? What rabbi taught you that you're my judge?

Man: You're fine. You talk to God and work out your problems, but stay out of the public eye. That's the difference.

Weiner: That's up to you to judge, my friend. I don't take my judgments to you and I don't judge you.

Man: You're a bad example for the people.

Weiner: That's your judgment?

Man: No, that's obvious.

Weiner: By the way, I've fought very hard for this community and delivered more than you will ever in your entire life.

Man: You never delivered anything for me or any of these people.

Weiner: You know nothing. You know nothing. Your ignorance is being shown to the entire world.

Notice no defense of his wife is actually made. He chides the guy initially for his language and then defends himself. Maybe the transcript I'm using is wrong but to say he defended his wife, is a complete lie.

Job Creator: It's just a certain feeling I have as a Jew," said the 51-year-old real estate manager, explaining his remark. "And my attitude is that -- not all Arabs -- but, in general, ... they want to kill every Jew."

Kessler said of a Jewish person marrying into such a family: "It's like a betrayal."

yeah but weiner is the REAL racist here for thinking that was a racist comment

Job Creator: I support how he dressed down this idiot.

He sounded like a fool.

"Only God can judge me!!!!"  No, sorry Miley Wiener.  You're running for office, everyone gets to judge you.

Who votes for the politicians? The people of Chicago. Your outdated swipe is an attack on the majority of Chicagoans by extension. Do you realize the president of the United States is a "Chicago politician?" Do you think Al Capone still controls Chicago?  You sound like a really angry person and you HAVE to realize you're one of just 7% of New Yorkers who supports Weiner. I know going down with the ship is noble and all, but, dude, you need to face it. It's over. Attacking the people of Chicago with outdated stereotypes and our pizza will not change that.

I think all of your sarcastic and/or joking posts should be accompanied by a fat dog jpeg. Or a fart joke.
That way, nobody gets hurt.

Wiener hid behind his wife's skirts when his second texting peccadillo was discovered. Now he is the noble white knight charging to her rescue? Sue I'll buy that!

spongeboob: Jackson Herring: spongeboob: So Arab is an insult?

are you being serious

do you seriously not get why what that guy said was incredibly racist and insulting

It was meant as an insult but taking it as an insult also says something about the person who is insulted.

Let me try another example, if someone asks me if I am gay and I get really insulted by that it means that in my mind being gay is a bad thing.

Yes.  Since it was meant as an insult, It says the listener possesses the skills to accurately interpret the speaker's intended subtext.

Looking at the video I think I see where the fellow got angry.  Weiner actually asked the counter people  notto give him a discount.  What kind of Jew is that?

Not a fan of Weiner -- not this one, anyway -- but good on him for coming back at this passive-aggressive a#$hole.

After finding out more about this heckler, I can't fault Weiner.  The heckler did an interview where he said that he considers Weiner's marriage "sleeping with the enemy."  I would think less of Weiner if he went flaccid.
