Curiously, despite the intense interest in the Weiner, the press are still quite happy to embrace him, and are quick to suggest there is no reason to consider his political future suspect. Case in point is the lovely Kirsten Powers, columnist for the New York Post, who stated:
"A lot of people have speculated that this would harm his chances for mayor of New York. Ed Koch suggested it would harm his chances of being mayor of New York. Nobody will remember this story. Come on, really, what is this in the end? I don't think he has done anything wrong here. There is a lot of speculation. His wife seems to be perfectly fine in standing by him. I don't think we should suggest there is infidelity here when I don't think there is any evidence of infidelity."Wait a minute... Kirstin Powers took a peek into this Weiner thing and couldn't find anything to get excited about? Is that a good thing?
