Anthony Weiner Is Back!

Remember Anthony Weiner? He’s the former U.S. Congressman from New York who accidentally tweeted an image of his erect penis … and then tried to claim his Twitter account had been hacked. Weiner’s account hadn’t been hacked, though. He just had a case of slippery fingers. In fact weeks later…

Remember Anthony Weiner?

He’s the former U.S. Congressman from New York who accidentally tweeted an image of his erect penis … and then tried to claim his Twitter account had been hacked.

Weiner’s account hadn’t been hacked, though. He just had a case of slippery fingers. In fact weeks later he resigned from Congress over the scandal, acknowledging that he had carried on sexually-themed flirtations with several women – including a porn star – and lied about it.

Not only that, Weiner was coaching the women to lie to the media too …

Anyway, less than two years later Weiner is back … as a potential candidate for mayor of New York City.

Yeah … apparently if Mark Sanford can do it, so can he.

Many New York Democrats like Weiner’s chances, too, arguing that his personal indiscretions pale in comparison to the public corruption which continues to infest the Empire State.

Others aren’t sold on Weiner’s return …

“Seriously, Weiner is thinking of running for mayor of New York?” one FITS reader noted. “He and Sanford should wait till 2016 and run with the slogan ‘We’re a Couple of Dicks!'”

Nice …

We’ve never had a problem with Weiner’s personal failings. It’s the fact he lied about them (habitually) that we don’t like … well, that and his uber-leftist political ideology. Accordingly, we could never support his political comeback.

Weiner, 48, represented New York’s ninth congressional district for over a decade. In 2010 he married former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in a ceremony presided over by president Bill Clinton. Abedin was pregnant with the couple’s first child at the time of his spectacular fall from grace.

Anyone reading could easily form an opinion as to whether Mr. Weiner deserves another shot

Well thought out post

What makes guys like Sanford and Weiner think they are irreplaceable? Impaired judgement, sense of entitlement, narcissism – all the stuff that got them in trouble in the first place! BUT PEOPLE RE-ELECT THEM BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY HAVE REFORMED!!!

Of course he lied, he got into a mess and couldn’t get out of it. Do you know anyone who lied when they got caught?? This was a problem between his wife and him and they were able to salvage their marriage. Kudos to them!

After seeing SC Republicans sloppy kissing Sanford,guess he figured he could get back into the water.Don’t blame him, and now we’ll wait for John Edwards to enter the side show.Edwards and Sanford were voted the top two slimeist cheaters,so if Sanford can be ass kissed by SC,then Edwards should also be rewarded…..I would rather vote for a guy who took a picture of his package wrapped in a towel, than a guy who took his package to Argentina at tax payer expense……Go for it Mr Weiner——-Sanford’s weiner went for it and it seems to have done him proud,voters love it.

Daddy Sanford was taking care of his kids when he had them on stage with his mistress.Word on the street is that Jenny didn’t know that bunga babe Chapur was going to be there and the boys had never even met her.Would love to have been a fly on the wall when Sanford took the next phone call from Jenny…….When it comes to getting votes, Sanford was willing to sacrifice his boys.Their Mother will handle it now. Guessing that was the straw that broke the cheated on wife’s back.

anne-Those pictures of boys looking so upset broke my heart. Needless to say that’s why I posted a comment slamming Sanford I did wonder if Jenny knew. Mark said it was a surprise-BS. His sister was there and so was his mom. Why didn’t they tell the boys in advance? Would love to know how Mark and his family brought Chapur to Charleston w/o anyone spotting her.

Will you two bleeding heart liberals get a freaking life?

“…Those pictures of boys looking so upset broke my heart. Needless to say that’s why I posted a comment slamming Sanford I did…”

You posted your anti-Sanford comment because you don’t like him. The boys had the same dumb looks on their faces that boys that age have on their faces 90% of the day unless their torturing girls, running with their boys or doing what that vice mayor is accused of…

I agree. Sanford’s words betrayed him as well. He stated that Chapur’s presence was an “awfully, awfully” nice surprise. Sounds like his subconscious recognized he stepped in it on some level.

“We’ve never had a problem with Weiner’s personal failing. It’s that he lied about them habitually that we don’t like”… so yeah! Just like most of the others! Sanford, Nikki, Peeler, Eckstrom, Ballentine. They’re are cheats. Say one thing do another. They can’t be trusted in their personal lives why would anyone trust them with the business of the state. They are egomaniacs chasing their dicks around or puss in Nimratas case, although I’m not convinced she’s not a hermaphrodite. How ’bout it Sic?

North Korean Missile Test Delayed by Windows 8

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report) — North Korea’s official news agency announced today that the military’s planned missile test had been put on hold because of “problems with Windows 8.”

Intelligence analysts said that the announcement gave rare insight into the inner workings of North Korea’s missile program, which until last year had been running on Windows 95.

The announcement from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) did not indicate a new scheduled time for a missile test, saying only that it was “working with Windows 8 support to resolve the issue.”

In the words of one intelligence analyst, “That means the test been delayed indefinitely.”

A source close to the North Korean regime reported that Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is furious about the Windows 8 problems and is considering a number of options, including declaring war on Microsoft.
