The political world was shocked at its foundations this afternoon, when it was revealed that the man behind the Big Hollywood web site, Andrew Breitbart had said something true.

"I'm as surprised as any of you," said the 42-year-old publisher and commentator.  "When someone told me that Representative Wiener had tweeted a picture of a boner in his undies, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard.  Naturally, I published it immediately."

Several of the individuals associated with publicizing the notorious tweet turned out to have criminal and arrest records.  When they quickly ducked for cover, many people interpreted this as evidence of a scam.  One of these suspicious characters, Mike Stack, came out of hiding after Wiener's press conference.  "For real?" Stack said to an AP reporter who reached him by phone, "Some chick sent me a photo of some guy's pecks and said, 'These are Anthony Wiener.'  I didn't buy it for a second and was wracking my brain for a way to pin this on Wiener.  Then this YFrog tweet thing happened, and I was all, 'sweet'!"

Stack explained that everyone knew the YFrog had a security hole and he assumed that some other operative had managed to use it to frame Wiener.  "It made my job a lot easier," Stack added, "but I never would have guessed any of this was real."

Reached for comment, the Breitbart blogger who broke the story, Dana Loesch, was quoted as saying, "I'm going to be on TV!"

In a tearful press conference today, Anthony Wiener took responsibility for sending the tweet as well as other inappropriate communications.  He apologized for "all the damage" he had done, saying, "I can only plead forgiveness for making Breitbart look like a hero.  Now that asshole will never shut the fuck up and for that, I am truly, truly sorry."

Naturally, Breitbart was in high spirits.  "I never thought I'd ever say anything true; this is really a shocker."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Now she can sit in the big girl chair right up there with Dana Basch, her follow "reporter" on CNN.

    Breitbart has now wormed his way onto every panel on CNN.  He will now be their new authority on Democratic sex scandals from now thru November 2012.

    Every Congressman in town would be smart to clean up their act.  I doubt Rep Weiner is the lone ranger.

    for once in his miserable little mendacious life he's going to have to sit on a donut cushion or the rest of his life---or until he finally commits a Federal offense even his Repub friends can't overlook.  

  •  The media *will* certainly vindicate him and all (1+ / 0-)

    of his past operations -- so it will be up to ACORN and Shirley Sherrod and those university profs and all the other folks Breitbart has Breitbarted over the past couple years to take him down.

    Weiner did this to himself, but there are still a lot of really weird behind the scenes shenanigans that just don't fit together to me.  At this point, however, I'm tired of trying to make sense of it.  If the "holier than thou" on the other side of the aisle want to press the issue further then I'm sure it would be something they'd soon regret - but of course that doesn't mean it would stop them.  I'm sure Newt has a fundraising letter all ready to go out as I type this.

    Oh well - in another month there will be someone else dangling a shiny in front of the media which will send this to the dustbin just like Foley and Toe Tapper and Rent Boy and all the others.

    Help wipe off out American Santorumism before it's too late!
