Daily Beast Begins Rehabilitation Of Weiner

A pretend ‘poll’ from the pretend news outlet, the Daily Beast:

Survey: Anythony [Sic] Weiner Could Still Be New York Mayor

By David A. Graham | The Daily Beast
June 3, 2011

Is Anthony Weiner’s political career—and his chance of becoming New York’s next mayor—in jeopardy? It’s a decision that won’t be made by the pundits, the puritans, or even Andrew Breitbart—it will be made by New Yorkers.

You see, only "puritans" would bridle at Mr. Weiner’s behavior here. And damn that Andrew Breitbart for reporting news we don’t want to hear!

So the Daily Beast hit the streets of the Big Apple and conducted an informal survey of 100 New Yorkers to ask them what they thought about Weinergate and the motormouth representative, who has long had his eye on the New York City mayor’s office.

In other words, the Daily Beast decided they had better get on the stick (ahem) and start rehabilitating Mr. Weiner’s political career as soon as possible.

The verdict? The Weiner haters can fugheddaboutit: even though many believe the infamous grey underwear did indeed belong to Weiner, a majority of respondents—71 percent—said the news hadn’t changed their opinion of Weiner, who represents parts of Brooklyn and Queens in Congress. Overall, the numbers present a picture of a city that may be rolling its eyes at Weiner, but won’t decide what lever to pull based on whether they’ve seen his lever: two-thirds said the incident wouldn’t factor into a decision on whether to vote for him for mayor.

Notice that nowhere in this artful "poll" do we hear whether the respondents actually approve or disapprove of Mr. Weiner as a Congressman or potential mayor. Why is that, do you think?

What’s more, respondents seem to be buying Weiner’s line that he didn’t send out the photo. Slightly more than a quarter believe he sent the questionable photo, but 43 percent think someone else did it—and the rest don’t care.

And echoing his own lack of “certitude” on whether it depicted him, equal proportions believe the photo is and isn’t the congressman.

Bear this in mind the next time you hear New York described as the most sophisticated city in the United States. In truth it has become a dumping ground for ignoramuses and third world-ers.

Sculpture vendor Iddi Amadu [sic] took a moment from hawking his wares in Union Square to say it doesn’t matter. “So he likes beautiful ladies! So what, who doesn’t?” Amadu said. “Leave the guy alone. I think this is a conspiracy against him.”

That’s funny, that’s what Mrs. Clinton once said in similar circumstances.

Still, we wonder if Mr. Amadu realizes that Mr. Weiner was last in the news for his efforts to have a ‘sexist’ piece of sculpture pulled down? (Just kidding. We doubt that Mr. Amadu had ever even heard Mr. Weiner’s name until this week.)

In the Financial District, Casset Gelin said she was more interested in his, ahem, performance on the job than anywhere else. ““I couldn’t care less,” she said, adding, “he’s innocent until proven guilty, and it’s about effectiveness at his job.”

Once again not that we still have no indication as to whether Ms. Gelin thinks Mr. Weiner is a good Congressman or not.

Meanwhile, voters in his own district showed remarkable loyalty in the face of their rep’s bumbling behavior

This is "bumbling"? Somehow we don’t think that would be the term of art the Daily Beast would have employed if the Congressman in question was a Republican.

Less [sic] than one in six believed he sent the photo out, although three times that many were ready to believe he was the owner of the anatomy depicted. One resident of Weiner’s building even told The Daily Beast she’d seen her neighbor and congressman on a potentially incriminating shopping run days earlier. “I just saw him Saturday at Banana Republic buying underwear," she said, but added that although she suspected he took the photo, she thought a hacker must have tweeted it. “I don’t think he’s that lowlife to send it."

Oh, but he is. However, being a "lowlife" doesn’t seem to be much of a barrier to attaining high office in New York City these days.

Still, think how annoyed a certain Elliot Spitzer must be.

    One can’t help but conclude that New Yorkers like their Weiners – regardless of the packaging.

    There must be something about living in an urban area that destroys brain cells. Imagine if we could wall off the country’s urban areas and let them govern themselves and leave the rest of us alone…what a great country we’d be left with.

    • Steve says:

      Ahem. (Though I do have to agree to a great extent.)

    • canary says:

      EPA guidelines want every city to be like NYC. Federal stimulus money going to bike paths, buses (conversion). Cities are not allowing parking lots to reduce automobiles.

      EPA guideline among astronomical number of rezoning guidelines.

      “..development should be designed to create desirable residential developments and ensure a seamless integration with existing neighborhoods. The R4 zone is intended to encourage high-density residential development in standard residential zones, where previously such development was allowed only in certain Precise Plan areas…”

      Needless to say that present company is excepted.

      Steve – I’m not sure how you can manage to live in the belly of the liberal beast. I’ve reached the point in my life where I don’t want to be anywhere near liberals. I don’t want to see them, hear their opinions, or live under their rules. They get on my last nerve.

  2. Liberals Demise says:

    If a Weiner can not be humiliated………a Weiner can not be rehabilitated.
    Perhaps a rousing game of Gay softball will tighten the “Fruit of the Loom”.

  3. GetBackJack says:

    Headline – “Weiner Pulls Out” …. nixes his appearance with Wasserman-Schultz in Milwaukee

  4. untrainable says:

    Wiener won’t deny that the photo is of his junk. But he does deny sending the tweet. So how did this ficticious hacker get a photo of his junk by hacking into twitter? I refuse to tweet, so forgive my ignorance but, does twitter require a genital photograph as part of their registration process?

  5. tranquil.night says:

    As penance, say ten “I did not have sex with those women”s and start a non-profit 501(c) to help the global poor.

    Edit: And by ‘help the global poor’ we of course mean re-elect Obama and Win the Future.

  6. Tater Salad says:

    Bwaney Fwranks would just love to “team up” with this pervert of a Weiner. Question: Was the underwear “Fruit of the Loom” which would be appropriate for this pervert?

  7. tranquil.night says:

    Tommy Christopher of Mediaite has some very interesting reporting with regards to the activists (?) who had basically been doing Media Matters type snooping on Weiner’s twitter communications and potentially looking to engineer scandals, according to the young victims whose identities were compromised thanks to Tommy’s fellow Leftist DailyKoS leader Markos Moulitsas.

    h/t Stacy McCain:

    Will be curious to see if this angle gets any play in the MBM because it might’ve fit the template had not Weiner backed himself into a corner with his eccentric behavior following. Instead, it looks like they genuinely want the story squashed out of the mainstream, which must mean they know they have more to lose than gain here, politically.

    Still, if there is any truth to this, and these were “patriotic” activists harassing Weiner and his followers, then I strongly condemn it. We will never have the same benefits as the Left in engaging in their type of dirty tricks like that. We take those hits and then continue to play the game by our higher standards. That’s when we can’t lose. But abandon our principles and we’ll fare no better than them, because that’s who we’ll have become.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Via John @ Verum Serum (h/t Ace): Dan Wolfe (@PatriotUSA76) tells his side of the story.

      I’m impressed with the New Media’s demonstrated standards of judgment (Weiner jokes and nutroot wing of the internet are excluded obviously) as they’ve covered every new development of this story.

  8. JohnMG says:

    …..”71 percent—said the news hadn’t changed their opinion of Weiner…..”

    Hasn’t changed my opinion of him either. The only thing that could be more appropriaqte than his last name wojuld have been if his mother had named him Richard. Now THAT would have proved precient.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      How many dogs do you think Mook can wolf down and (now that she’s telling everyone how to eat) do you think she is a closet eater?

    • tranquil.night says:

      “Do you think she is a closet eater?”

      That’s like asking if it’s Foreskin Man’s sole mission to protect babies from evil wiener snipping joo monsters (while protecting the mother’s right to have scrambled said baby in the womb of course).

      I’m just not convinced Mooch-elle likes wiener as much as the political business partner with whom she’s under contract.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      As I perused this situation when reading it in another blog (which shall remain nameless), I couldn’t help but be aghast at the hypocrisy of it all. To say that we live in an autocracy is to say that grass is green and birds chirp. The absolute arrogance and in-your-face-ness of it. But, I take solice when I go to my saved photos and look at this: http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g182/airbusteacher/MichelleObamasbutt.jpg

      Somehow, things are better when I see that. She may say all she wants about proper diet and exercise but I doubt she’ll ever see the small side of 200lbs. Not that I care, nor did I really ever care. But since she’s “all up in my face wid it” then I cannot help but be equally as observant and vocal about it.

      Of course, the real joke is that while she keeps telling everyone else how to live, she and Hambone set such a wretched example in how they live their own lives, it’s a natural. One thing remains to be seen and that is along the lines of their personal finances. When the media finds out after they are removed from the public eye that no one is willing to pay to come see or hear them talk anymore, and their “income” seriously curtailed, they will be in the news as being destitute after they spend more than they will make in “retirement”, thus causing some idiot in government to propose a bailout bill for the ex-pezzident, cuz he dun spent hisseff into oblivion.

      Don’t think it’ll happen? I admit it may not. But if their spending habits prior to election are any indication, and their current unlimited spending habits get them used to certain things, then…..is it really that much of a stretch? One thing the socialists hate more than anything is a mooch. That is someone who mooches off THEM, vs the American taxpayer. It’s ok when they give away other people’s money but when it’s their own….they won’t support the Hambone and all his little hambones for very long. He and She will burn through the bucks they stole in record time. She will want a mansion, a full house staff, limo, trips to wherever on a private jet (they don’t come cheap when you have to pay for them yourself) and co-socialists are only charitable when there’s an agenda. So they won’t be paying their way any more. Once he’s elected out, they will quickly abandon them. The inside phrase will be “Obama-who?”

      As a side note, think of the election of 2012 as not an election FOR any republican, but an election AGAINST the socialists. That we want the most conservative candidate we can get is a given. But it ain’t gonna happen. The inside-the-beltway snots had Reagan and he was loved by the people but he didn’t act, didn’t talk, didn’t see things the way the elites did; The way that RULERS should, in that stuffy, croissant-eating, latte’ drinking uber-alles acting stuffed shirts and “intellectuals” do. He was considered classless because he came from inferior stock. The fact is that he had more class in his little finger than any DC Arian superior-race could ever hope to have. Sarah is the same way. But McLame and Boner and the rest of the hee-haw gang will not tolerate a “regular” person who is not of ivy-league standing, or who has ever had a real job in their life. They want someone like them…manicured, tight-creased pants, wool suits and perfectly coiffed, above-it-all, limo-riding, well-papered SOB.

      Just by watching the past few weeks, both sides hate her because she doesn’t even fight the way the snotty little elites fight. And that really makes them angry.

      Love the pics, Rusty.
      2 rights and 1 wrong
      And the wrong is telling us we aren’t eating properly……. “Every Picture Tells a Story”

    • preparing4theworst says:

      @Rusty…GREAT pic…the chorus “two out of three ain’t bad” comes to mind..

  9. nascarnation says:

    Based on all the chicks he’s following on Tweater, I’m thinking Huma can’t keep his weiner up.
    Heck they haven’t been married a year yet.
    Maybe she went back with Hilly?

    The Saudi Muslim / USA Jew combo seemed dubious all along in my view.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      The reason she probably married this weirdo is she didn’t have to compete with barnyard animals for affection. Arabs dooooo love thems’ critters first!
      Looks like she is still 2nd place, though.

  10. Chase says:

    “A new woman has come forward with what she claims are photographs, chats, and emails with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). These appear to undermine severely Rep. Weiner’s explanations that he was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.”

    The detailed new information suggests that the Brooklyn- and Queens-based representative and the young woman in question were involved in an online, consensual relationship involving the mutual exchange of intimate photographs…..

    We will be updating BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com throughout the day with photographs, timelines, and other clarifying details. However, we will not be releasing all of the material because some of it is of an extreme, graphic nature.”


    Wolf Blitzer was right on this one – this story is not going to go away. Of course not, Weiner, like the arrogant species Dhimmies are, thinks he can talk himself out of anything. We’ll see….

  11. Mithrandir says:

    I TOLD YOU ALL HE DID IT! It was an accident to send the photo and he got in front of the news to claim he was hacked to divert attention away from his mistake, hoping that would be the end of it.

    Liberal Media mostly ran to his defense saying it was Breitbart’s fault etc.

    They will massage this as puritanical. “who ever hath not sinned, cast the first stone!” –the bill clinton defense. forgetting that Jesus told the prostitute to “go now and sin no more”, not “let’s forget all about it, now that the mob is gone.”

    Weiner will eventually get his own show Weiner & Spitzer or maybe pair up with George Bush on CNN as Weiner -N- Bush.

  12. Chase says:

    And so true to Democratic (un)principles – if a GOP’er is found to be soliciting, talking to pages, or involved in other inappropriate behaviors, MOST have quickly resigned and gone away quietly.

    NOT SO for a Democrat. Jefferson, Waters, Fwank, McKinney, nearly every Kennedy, Conyers, Dodd, etc, they all go to rehab, lawyer-up, point fingers, yell conspiracy, or hunker down, clinging by fingernails to their seat, drawing their salary while in rehab and not voting, and otherwise demeaning the Congress, for which they have little respect obviously, and not representing their constituency while they play their games. So typical – perhaps it will become known as Weinering in the future, exclusively applied to arrogant, narcissistic Dhimmiecraps.

    And the idiots who elected him will remain enamored, and willing to put up with nearly anything just so they have a labor-serving, special-interest hugging, pro-aborting, corruption-laced Demo in place to make them proud of the American diversified mediocrity that makes them all so stupidly complacent and comfortable with themselves.
