Wiener Wednesday!

"Anthony Weiner examined!"
Mark Steyn hosts the Rush Limbaugh show today, discussing among other things the Wiener Twitter of Anthony Weiner (Democrat, New York), who apparently twitted a photo of his bulging grey boxers to a twitter feed that he follows on a college co-ed in the great state of Washington.

"That is not my wiener!", Weiner exclaimed, "It is a mere hack of my wiener."

Whether that's true or not, it still strikes me as curious that the congressmen is following a college co-ed and exchanging tweets.

Anyway, catch Mark Steyn on Rush today!

CNN's Wolf Blitzer probed further into the wiener controversy with the following exchange with the Democrat from New York:

"Have you ever taken a picture like this of yourself?"

"I can tell you this, that there are -- I have photographs. I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me. I don't know what have been manipulated and doctored and we're going to try to find out what happened. But the most important reason I want to find out what happened is to make sure that it doesn't happen again. Obviously somebody got access to my account. That's bad. They sent a picture that makes fun of the name weiner. I get it. Touche."

Well, I don't know that he does get it. Clearly he looks to cloud the issue. I don't have any photographs. Maybe that's the thing with young people today, but this guy is no young person, though the co-ed he has been following is. It all strikes me as kinda creepy. There's no upside for Mr. Weiner here.

Nice job, Blitz.

Update II
Apparently Weiner was married just last fall, and guess who this guy asked to do the wedding for him?

"When Abedin tied the knot with Weiner in Sept. 2010, Bill Clinton, who officiated the ceremony, chatted more about the big day than she did.
“If I had a second daughter, it would be Huma. She looked “like a Dior model.”
If you had a second daughter it would be Huma? She looks like a Dior model?! You don't want people to be your daughter because you think they look hot in their wedding dress. And this is from the guy who is doing the ceremony?! That's just .. off.

Meanwhile, Weiner has commented on his wife as well:
"She’s lovely and elegant and brilliant and widely respected throughout this town so obviously opposites attract.”
Perhaps, but that doesn't elevate your current position.


  1. The sausage is "wiener." The Congressman rhymes with
    whiner. Which is very appropriate, btw.

  2. I see I am confusing my weiners and wieners. Actually, I do not have a lot of experience writing about wieners. I suppose I should have done a little research before delving into the topic.

    I'll tell you this, I would not want to be having a national conversation about my wiener, nor would I want it sent to some co-ed. If a wiener was sent in my honor, so to speak, merely for the purpose of embarrassing me, the first thing out of my mouth would be an apology to the young girl for her becoming involved. A discussion of my wiener is not what her summer break should be taken up with. We call em 'the dogs', but even Oregonians never stoop so low as to call em wieners.

    Go Huskies!

  3. Kids these days. Look, I understand a bit of the bad boy appeal, but sending a photo of your unit? That's not being a bad boy. It's being a dirt ball.

    I don't get that.

    But Weiner I get. He's a dirt ball looking for cover in the usual manner. "Somebody did this to me!!"


  4. The only thing I was able to find in my personal collection of photos was a few negatives of a finger or a thumb when it accidentally went off taking off the lens cap. Does that count? I never sent those to anyone either. I even threw
    away the prints, lest anyone think less of my photo skills.

    Rep. Wiener's version doesn't ring true. I liked his long story about the pie and his imagined speech in front of 145,000 supporters. Bet that sounded good when only the a-hole in the mirror was listening.

  5. I do have a dream about a picture of someone lifting weights in a sundress, though. I'm pretty sure Weiner's not in it.

  6. In answer to the question did you notify the authorities that there was a breach of your private communications, Weiner replied:

    “This is not a national security matter. We are not making a federal case out of this and I don’t think anyone else should,’’

    No, it's not a matter of national security. It's a matter of character, and the question is are you honest, are you forthright in your answers or are you selling us a bunch of bull?

    I hate it when these guys are just guileless liars.

  7. Actually, "hacking" a CongressCritter's electronic communications would be a serious matter receiving serious jail time upon conviction. And he would be the first one calling for an FBI investigation if he wasn't already
    sure of the outcome.

    I will volunteer to be Huma's (his wife and very special assistant to Hillary) beard, though. I'll hold her bag of rocks if she wants to go ahead and take care of her old beard in the prescribed manner.

  8. "These aren't the droids we're looking for. Move along. Move along."

    Weiner thinks he's a Jedi.

  9. "In a panic when he saw he had hit the wrong button and sent a private tweet of his pecker to his entire Twitter following, Weiner blurted out the hacker defense, quickly typing: "FB hacked. Is my blender gonna attack me next?"

    You mean to tell me, he might have meant to only send it to one person, and then one click later all his "followers" are looking at what he meant to share with that special someone? The poor guy. No wonder he just wants to move on and get to the business of the country. That is so sad! I shed a bitter tear.

  10. Just in terms of judgment and having the sense of solemn commitment that marriage demands, could you ever, in your wildest dreams, picture yourself asking Bill Clinton to preside at your wedding ceremony? Just ignoring the past history of marital infidelity that Clinton brings to the table, the fact that he was disbarred for lying under oath, the intern, the blue dress, all of it, wouldn't you still be unsettled just knowing that odds on this guy is gonna be eyeing over your wife?
