The president feels, we feel at the White House, this is a distraction, as Congressman Weiner has said himself, his behavior was inappropriate, dishonesty was inappropriate.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney • responding to Weinergate. He didn’t go so far as to say Weiner should resign, though. It seems like the White House is pretty upset about this whole thing, which is understandable. Obama just made a speech about jobs today, and it’s easy to imagine him being fed up with Weiner getting all this press. Not only is Weiner’s situation bugging Democrats, but he’s taking press away from Obama. source (viafollow)

Publishing for the mere hopes that the Diane Gooch Weiner ad will show up on this post, too, to create a bizarre effect. Consider it a mental health break. (*EDIT* It did. YES. Now updated with the latest one. … And again.)
EDIT: Since it was asked, the ad company looks at the tags on the post/url, then bases the ad on what’s there. If you notice, a lot of our ads are political in nature. That’s because a lot of our posts are about politics.

An ad that just floated on our site a few minutes ago. Hrm. The woman listed in the ad, Diane Gooch, is a newspaper publisher who lost a Republican primary last year.

They were made aware of an alleged contact between Congressman Anthony Weiner and an area teen. The teen has been interviewed and disclosed no information regarding any criminal activity.
New Castle County Officer Tracey Duffy • Describing what happened when the New Castle police department interviewed a teenager who talked to Anthony Weiner via Twitter. While the consensus — from the teen, her family, the police department and  Weiner himself — seems to be that the conversation was innocuous, the fear is that he actually said something really creepy to a teen, in a Mark Foley sense. But, in case you needed proof that this is a media circus, we’d like to pull this sentence from the story: “A shirtless man approached reporters standing outside the family’s house and began threatening them with an ax. New Castle County police took the man into custody.” Good God, really? source (viafollow)

Barbara Walters: I don’t think Anthony Weiner has denied it. (The X-rated Weiner photo, Walters says she has seen it)

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Then it must be a flattering photo.

Barbara Walters: Let me tell you something. It is.

At this point, 9 Democratic leaders have called for Anthony Weiner’s resignation:
Former DNC Chairman and Virginia senate candidate Tim Kaine: “Lying is unforgivable,” Kaine told CBS-19,  a Charlottesville, Va., television station.  “Lying publicly about  something like this is unforgiveable, and he should resign.” [more] 
Yeah, if only we had a time machine so maybe they could toss Bill Clinton under the bus. Real gutsy guys. This makes me more ashamed of being a Dem than anything Weiner has done. Bleh!

Democrats throwing him under the bus left and right.
