Anthony Weiner resgning.

Author: June 16, 2011 10:55 am

Oh Thank GOD! Anthony Weiner is resigning! Obviously, someone of such low character shouldn’t be in Congress  (if they’re a Democrat, that is).

As the GOP sits back and slaps themselves on the back for getting rid of a particularly annoying liberal while utterly ignoring David “I broke the law” Vitter,  Larry “I also broke the law” Craig and John “I REALLY broke the law” Ensign, perhaps they should not be so happy. Now that they’ve set the bar so incredibly low for excuses to oust a Congressperson (dirty pictures? Really?) and are on the record at being outraged, OUTRAGED! at such shenanigans, how will they justify their inevitable support for next Republican getting caught with a prostitute or shtupping an intern? Regular conservatives won’t mind, of course, they’re already happy wallowing in their own hypocrisy: “David Vitter is a straw man argument! Weiner is MUCH worse!!” Keep telling yourselves that, no one’s buying it.

A better question is: Will the media continue to allow them to get away with it? IOKIYAR: It’s OK If You’re A Republican is an excuse that’s wearing veeeery thin these days.

  • I live in California, but I feel my voice in congress is now gone with Weiner out. Now what sissy Democrat is going to go on FOX News and fight with the teabaggers? The correct answer is nobody. No Weiner = No balls. (for the Democratic party)

    I’m sick of the Democratic party. Could never be one even as much as I hate business and the selfish, Republican ideology.

    Congress is a bunch of children if a congressman’s tweet could really distract them from unemployment and stupid wars.

    What Weiner did was morally wrong, but he didn’t break laws like Vitter did. Vitter still has a job. His resignation is a sad day for the ultra progressives.

  • Well, I think the Democrats are complete assholes and I will never again register as a Dem. They are cowards and got rid of a real voice for the people.

    However, I don’t think the leadership of the Dems, the Corporodems, will be sad to see Weiner leave.

    Our Democracy is rotting and this is just another example.

    And yes, shame on Weiner for being a sex obsessed jerk and being cowardly and resigning. Yea, I might have resigned too under those circumstances.

    Peace,

  • Sorry, no, he needed to go. I like the guy, and it’s sad…it NOT about the pictures, it’s about him LYING about it. THAT is the ethics issue…had he had the balls (to go with Mr. Johnson) to just pipe up and say “Yeah, that’s my underwear in that picture”, he HADN’T done anything wrong (OK, creepy, maybe) at that point. Nor, have any of the subsequent photos been anywhere “pornographic”. He should have just fessed up and this would all have blown over.

  • This is ridiculous! This only shows how retarded Republicans are and how much of a mockery they are making out of our government. No wonder people scream less government… The Republicans are a disgrace. This was nothing more than the party of no forcefully getting their way… A sad day for Americans.

  • I think its a bit of Kansas City Shuffle that the democrats fell for. The Republicans are screaming Ethics Violation look he is a perv, When what he did was NOT illegal. Though I have yet to hear what his wife had to say about this. All the while the important issues are being drowned out by bullsh*t politics.

    The republicans have had more than their fair share of marriage/sex scandals and needed this to TRY to appear on even keel.

    I think Weiner needs to do what Oberman suggested. Resign and run in the special Election let the people decide/reinstate him and hopefully then will shut them (republicans) the F*** up.
