Pulling It Off for Weiner

The New York Times “inadvertently” posted an “article on the women involved in Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal — and then deleted it.”

In other words, the New York Times pulled Weiner’s … never mind.

In June of 2011, Lil’ Anthony Weiner claimed he had been hacked and was subsequently forced to resign from Congress when it was revealed that for three years he had been tweeting pictures of his underwear-clad crotch and other more sexually explicit photos in online exchanges with a bevy of women.

With Weiner in a quest for mayoral-ship, gassing up his Weiner mobile and venturing forth on the streets of the Big Apple, Michael Barbaro of the New York Times  must have thought it might be in the public’s best interest to find out that “For Women in Weiner Scandal, Indignity Lingers.”

Lisa Weiss is a Las Vegas blackjack dealer, one of six women over three years (that we know of) involved in Weiner’s 2011 weiner-tweeting scandal.  Lisa claims she’s still taunted by customers who say things to her like “Talk dirty to me…We know you like it.”

In September 2012, Ms. Weiss posted an apology on Weiner’s Facebook page that said “Please let me apologize again for any pain I caused your [sic] or the beautiful Huma. It was unintentional … I still think you are our liberal hero and we need you back in politics!!”

Apparently, although he’s not sending pictures of his erection to Lisa anymore, Mr. Weiner did respect Ms. Weiss enough to take her political advice.

As a result, Mr. Barbaro wanted to alert the voting public in New York that although Lil’ Weiner considers his lewd behavior a thing of the past, there are women whose lives are still being impacted by his tasteless behavior.

In the meantime, while Huma dreams of life in Gracie Mansion, Barbaro wrote: “For those on the other end of Anthony D. Weiner’s sexually explicit conversations, the episode damaged careers, disrupted educations.”

Barbaro’s story was posted on the web and then suddenly the article was scrubbed from the Times website.  New York Times director of communications Danielle Rhoades Ha explained the article’s sudden disappearance this way: “This story was published inadvertently, before it was ready. As a general rule, we do not discuss stories in advance.”  Ahem, yeah right.

Margaret Sullivan, Times public editor, who called a New York Times Magazine story entitled “Huma and Anthony: The Private Life of a Former Power Couple” a “sweet stop on Mr. Weiner’s redemption tour,” wrote that “from what I’ve been able to piece together, there was a miscommunication among Times editors.”

Yeah, sort of like Weiner’s miscommunication when he tweeted the following message over the Internet to a willing female participant:  “ridiculous bulge in my shorts now. wanna see?” – to which the woman responded, “Yea! can u send a pic?”  Weiner shot back: “jeez, im rushing. let me take a quick pic.”

Now, two years later and despite his photographic improprieties, Weiner has left his pussy cat and Weinergate humiliation behind him to compete in a multi-candidate Democratic mayoral candidate field in which, in liberal New York City, he is in second place.

In their ongoing effort to prop up the Weiner, the New York Times has once again proved their affection for the aspiring mayor by pulling it off for Weiner.

And the Oscar goes to… Michelle Obama

390-michelle-obama-oscars-photoshopped-farsnews-300x184There is a nasty word for how the Obamas act when it comes to wanting to be seen with the 1% Hollywood crowd, but I’ll skip sharing the term other than to say it’s the title of a song by Nine Inch Nails.

Nevertheless, fresh off of demeaning the Office of the President by doing “The Happy Snapper” with Jimmy Fallon in drag, the first lady managed to find a way to claw her way onto the stage at the Academy Awards.  Because, hey, what would a Hollywood event be without at least one of the Obamas being the center of attention?

Weiner the Womanizer

Originally posted at Daily Caller

Anthony Weiner (D-NY), one of the most arrogant, self-impressed individuals ever to occupy an office on Capitol Hill, was caught with his pants down in the truest sense of the word.  When Representative Weiner stepped behind the podium to address his Twitter picture controversy, he looked like he was going to explode from humiliation.  Seeing a person so demoralized caused my kinder, gentler self to actually have a millisecond of pity for the New York congressman.

It was uncomfortable to watch a sniveling, visibly disgraced Weiner admit that he lied about sending lewd pictures of himself to young women.  However, my strange sensation of sympathy quickly dissipated, because the whole sordid skivvy-Twitter incident confirmed what I’ve suspected for a while: Anthony Weiner oozes with contempt toward women, and that contempt manifests itself in many different ways.

Take for instance Kirsten Powers, the Fox News analyst who once dated Anthony Weiner.  Powers called Weiner “very sweet, very funny,” and “very charming.” After three months, Kirsten found out the hard way that Anthony is none of the above. Powers said she was “shocked when [Weiner] broke it off. I think he’s the only guy who ever dumped me!” said Powers.  “I think he probably dumped many girls. I don’t think it was that big of a deal.”

Weiner has prided himself on being a smarmy, imperious, liberal know-it-all that speaks to political adversaries, especially the female ones, in a debasing manner that borders on verbal harassment.

In interviews and press conferences, the pushy, smirking Weiner has rudely tried to set the rules, even calling reporters “jackasses.” The congressman’s body language implies that whomever he’s debating is beneath his exalted self.

For years, Weiner has played Democrat pit bull on Fox News, sparring with America Live host Megyn Kelly. Whenever Ms. Kelly disagrees with Weiner’s rabid liberalism, the congressman attempts to steer the conversation by pummeling the Fox anchor with an assault of interruptions and insulting comments. In one contentious interview, as soon as Megyn gained the upper hand Weiner responded by demeaning her professional skills, telling her, “This is the way interviews work, you ask the questions and then I get to answer.”

On more than one occasion, Weiner has also subjected congressional colleague Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to similar disrespect when debating the debt ceiling, spending, and tax cuts. Seething with condescension, Weiner once attempted to set Bachmann up by mockingly asking her trick questions to try to trap her and make her look foolish.

Now, after years of Anthony Weiner accusing everyone of lying, it is revealed that the self-righteous Democrat congressman broke his marriage vows to wife Huma Abedin, the longtime personal assistant of another woman also humiliated by a sex scandal.

During Weiner’s apologetic press conference, the public found out his indiscretion was probably not a surprise to his wife.  The New York Representative confessed to the press that in an outpouring of soul-mate honesty he had discussed his lack of Twitter decorum with his wife-to-be prior to their wedding. Then after the honeymoon, while Huma was tailing Mrs. Clinton, contemptuous Weiner was tailing attractive young women on Twitter and Facebook.

In fact, when the Weiners married last year, former President Clinton, the king of all womanizers, officiated at the ceremony. Although Bill Clinton doling out wedding blessings is like David Hasselhoff being a guest speaker at an AA meeting, during the Muslim/Jewish ceremony the ex-president did share some prophetic wisdom gleaned from personal experience: “Marrying a politician can be tough because it’s easy to distrust them, whatever their religion.” Amen to that.

Huma should have heeded Bill’s insightful counsel because while she was busy assisting Hillary, Internet security specialist Anthony Weiner was home, snapping suggestive pictures of himself and sending them to 198 women, some of whom may turn out to be teenagers.  Weiner disrespected women who were total strangers by having phone sex with these female “friends” and burning up the social network in an attempt to cultivate self-gratifying cyber- sexual relationships with people he’s never even met in person.

After being busted by Andrew Breitbart, the only journalist brave enough to do the work the left wing media refuses to do, Weiner immediately exhibited additional contempt – this time for the truth, Huma, his constituents, and the public. The disgraced congressman lied not once, but repeatedly, until he was cornered with proof of his salacious escapades – photos, phone records, and a multitude of women stepping forward to tell the story that the congressman, supposedly out of humiliation, refused to admit.

Yet, after all of that, it was at the podium that Weiner’s condescending aggression made itself crystal clear:  After the congressman, in a Jim McGreevy moment, admitted his weakness and that what he did was immoral and hurtful towards his wife, he shifted into his standard conceited operating mode and announced he had no plans to step down – a revelation more shocking than the shot of Weiner in tight boxer briefs.

And so, the most disturbing aspect of this lurid story is not the congressman’s bawdy behavior online, but his insolence toward the American people, toward Congress, and toward the state of New York. Despite his admission of guilt, Weiner’s thorough contempt for women has not vanished; it’s been expanded to include the rest of America.
