I had hoped to be able to continue to work… the distraction that I have created has made that impossible.
Anthony Weiner resigns. @rickklein (via brooklynmutt) • How about the distraction that jerk from Howard Stern made? That was worse than impossible. No respect.

Howard Stern has apparently taken over this press conference.

CNN’s live feed on Weinergate: MSNBC just said something about Weiner and his wife wondering if he’ll have enough money to raise his coming child. *wince*

Weiner’s probably gonna step down guys. This whole Weinergate saga has been pretty depressing, in both its conceit and the fact that Weiner actually did the deed. But it looks like it’s going to end soon. If we were Weiner, we’d run again in 2012.

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.

This is a massive overreaction and I don’t understand it.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Melanie Sloan • Offering one of the few defenses to Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been told by members of both parties that he should resign. Even close friends of his — including Fox News commentator Kirsten Powers, an ex-girlfriend of Weiner’s — are forcing the issue. In that case, what’s a little surprising is that he went out of his way to help Powers when her parents were stuck in Egypt during the Arab Spring, and she defended Weiner long after many correspondents quit. It took a lot for her to turn on him — though she now claims he used her. But for us, Sloan’s point — that Weiner likely did nothing illegal, considering that all of his affairs were virtual in nature, and a guy who actually paid for prostitutes, Sen. David Vitter, is still in office — isn’t really getting heard. He screwed up, but really? Really? Come on now. People do worse things every day. source (via • follow)
