Liar, Liar, Pants on Twitter
The worst Weiner can expect is that his district will cease to exist in 2012, as the blue state workers' paradise of New York lost so many people in the last decade that the state has to give up two congressional districts. The best he can expect is that no one will ever take him too seriously again, and that he will be the brunt of late night comic jokes for months and perhaps years to come.
Apparently Andrew Breitbart has a much, much more disturbing photo out there to publish but he's so far held off. I'll pass.
The formerly readable Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs has once again embarrassed himself coming to the defense of lefties only he thinks are innocent victims. What Rep. Weiner took 9 days to admit most people, armed with only a few of the facts, knew instantly. Johnson seems to have a diminished sense of shame too, which is part of the reason he is no longer readable, except for schadenfreude at his expense.

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed."—Sarah Palin on Paul Revere
I'd take a sex fiend in office over a moron any day of the week.
As to Palin. Worse sentence structure ever. I'd almost rather listen to valley girls, but the gist of what she said: Once captured, Revere warned the British and that there were bells ringing and warning shots--all historically accurate. Who's the idiot now. Revere did not warn the people in Concord that the British were coming to confiscate the militia muskets, Dr. Samuel Prescott did. Dawes and Revere were captured between Lexington and Concord.
My point is that this shouldn't have been an issue in the first place. Weiner--and yes, it's wrong that he lied--shouldn't have had to answer to this at all. It was a personal matter, with absolutely nothing illegal involved, that had nothing to do with his position in office. And the fact that, after less than a week, I know more about Weinergate than I do about, say, how exactly Osama bin Laden died, is really revealing about the political media focus in America.
And whatever, I can give you more quotes if you want, Sarah Palin is an idiot.
