    in a Weiner diary but, honestly, I don't know what all the fucking fuss is about. I still love Anthony Weiner. I think he's a complete idiot, and I don't know why his wife would stay with him, but he's been a fantastic voice for progressive causes and I don't think he should have to resign.

    They're just dick pix. Big effing deal. It's his personal life. Let him have it.

    Now. Let me be clear: I've seen rumblings and rumors that he could have corresponded with underage girls. I have no idea whether or not this is true, and I'm hedging my bets to see how this all plays out, but if that's true, he most certainly needs to resign. If he hounded women and it wasn't a reciprocal thing, then he most certainly needs to resign. You'd have my full agreement in those two instances.

    Until then, fuck it, man. He's a dude and he's a freaking moron, but he's still a great representative.

      representative?

      but he's been a fantastic voice for progressive causes and I don't think he should have to resign.

      It is for this very reason that I am so angry, because I would be very, very surprised if he could continue being that 'fantastic voice.'

      The media is very unforgiving and unfortunately there is a struggle right now going on for the "minds and hearts' of people.  Manipulated by the media.  That means manipulated by the corporatists.

      He has a long way to rebuild himself.

        I'm honestly not sure if he can rebuild his image and ride it out - he certainly can't right now. He's gotta wait it out and see which way the wind blows.

        I'd say if Weiner is still being hounded by the press and people can't drop it in, say, 2 months, then he should resign.

        And I do agree that this is a huge distraction, and that he fucked up big-time, because he did. Like I said, dude's an idiot. I'm just not ready to throw him under the bus yet. I'm waiting, and I'm not a patient person normally.

      it's likley the good congressman was doing his sexting/texting, etc... on our dime. you know what that means, correct?

      as others have pointed out... while our economy is swirling the drain... stock market tanking (again) the best thing Mr. Weiner can think to do on our dime is engage in on line fantasies with porn stars??

      You are OK with this??

        Well, that's not good.

        No, I'm not cool with that.

      •  No. Just because he's a public servant (0+ / 0-)

        does not mean he can't have personal time or a personal life. All the messaging was done from his private blackberry. No laws broken. Just a personal moral failing. Geee... ya think he might be human?   Gasp!
