‘Poor’ Weiner Can’t Afford To Quit His Job

From a perhaps tongue in cheek New York Post:

Weiner can’t afford to quit the DC day job

June 10, 2011

Even if scandal-stained [sic] Rep. Anthony Weiner didn’t want to stay in office, he needs to stay in office. Unlike many of his peers in the House, Weiner doesn’t have a business or even a law degree to fall back on.

According to his Wikipedia entry, Mr. Weiner he attended the State University of New York at Plattsburgh where he had plans on becoming a television weatherman. But alas, he couldn’t hack it and turned to politics.

Weiner, 46, took home $156,117 in 2010, according to his federal tax returns released by his staff.

Which seems like a very generous salary for a job which obviously allowed him a lot of free time.

His humiliated wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, earned $154,000 in 2009, federal records show.

Which is a scandal in its own right. Even a top of the line body slave valet social secretary doesn’t make that much money in the private sector.

He owes between $10,000 and $15,000 on his American Express card, according to his most recent financial-disclosure forms.

And that is probably just his underwear bill.

If he steps down, he could grovel to cable TV execs for talking-head "analyst" gigs that hopefully pay more than the $825 he gets for appearing on HBO’s "Real Time with Bill Maher." But with Weiner’s reputation in ruins, other lucrative jobs may be hard to get.

Well, there is always CNN. Though even Mr. Weiner might not want to go that low. Still, couldn’t his ‘in-laws’ the Clintons arrange for him to get a job at the United Nations or Revlon – or Goldman Sachs?

"He would most likely have to go to friends in the business sector, but he doesn’t have a financial background," said political consultant Joseph Mercurio.

Tell that to Chelsea or Rahm Emanuel, or just about any Democrat who needs a quick score.

    I feel really bad for the poor little weiner. After all, when Teddy showed his willy to some young ladies along with his nephew, there wasn’t a big stink like this. It’s just not fair! (sarc off now)

    Maybe he should have considered that actions do have consequences before taking pictures of his “manhood” and distributing it.

    Sounds like he needs some debt counseling if he really owes AMEX that much. It must be really hard to make it on “only” 300K a year. I’d like to try it sometime just to see if I could do it as would most everyone else on this site. Poor little Anthony, he might have to get a real job and see what Kraft Mac & Cheese tastes like. Gag!

      Maybe John Edwards can buy a new frige and give Weiner to box to put under some bridge.

  2. Liberals Demise says:

    With the wifey preggo and his world blowing up constantly in his face…….
    this baiter and dreg deserves all the short comings but will deflect all the slings and arrows shot his way because he has no scruples. He doesn’t give a shiite about nobody except his own self. Pride cometh before the fall.
    Speaking of short comings……….you got a lot of nerve Tweeting Vienna Sausage. What a joke!!

  3. jimreport says:

    What about the Coast Guard? Seems like a lot of pride there, a lot of tradition. He could be a land guy. Someone has to unhook the boat, before it leaves the place.

    • Right of the People says:

      I wouldn’t denigrate the honor and reputation of a fine service like the Coast Guard by having this ass clown associated with it in any way shape or form.

      The prison system on the other hand could use someone of his fine, upstanding character to clean the johns for the cons.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      THAT……..Would be “TWEET”.

    Does the Oscar Meyer vehicle need a new driver?

  5. Mithrandir says:

    If you have been reading the ‘news’ and the latest excuses for weiner, it goes something like this:

    Anthony Weiner, whose wife may be pregnant, is refusing to step down, and word is, his wife huma may be with child. Despite pressure from fellow Democrats, Weiner, whose wife is reportedly in the first trimester, is withstanding the heat, even though his wife, possible pregnant, is in Africa with Hillary Clinton. It’s reported that he has no hope now of being mayor of New York City after this scandal, or any other job….which is reeeeally sad, as we said earlier, his wife is with child.

  6. JohnMG says:

    …..other lucrative jobs may be hard to get…….”

    A most unfortunate choice of words……..or, maybe not. ;-]

    • Chase says:

      And everyone should understand that the libtard elite deserve and are entitled to nothing less than a lucrative job, cushy benefits, lifetime health insurance and an easy pension.

      Seems like his labor buddies might would find something for him…but without either a law or meterology degree for the training on twisting words (he sadly already has the lying through his teeth thing down pretty good) perhaps he is not much good to them either.

      All those other schmucks out there with pregnant wives and non-lucrative jobs are just schmucks – not his breeding…

  7. canary says:

    Fox reported that Wiener apologized to Bill Clinton who gave the wedding, as if slick willy would see anything wrong. The wife will have Bill and Hillary counseling her. Wife assistants Hillary on visits to other countries.
    Weiner best not set food in a middle-eastern country. They would wack the offensive limb or twig off.

  8. Petronius says:

    Hey, why stop with Anthony Weiner?

    Why not sack the whole bunch and get rid of the entire Congress? After all, Congress has become largely obsolete and redundant; it is being replaced by the other branches of government — presidential executive orders, presidential wars and kinetic operations, czars, recess appointments, EPA and other bureaucratic regulations, and court decrees now account for most of our lawmaking.

    “Stroke of the pen, law of the land. Kinda cool.” Paul Begala on Bill Clinton’s misuse of executive orders (1998).

  9. Papa Louie says:

    Lawyers are weiners but Weiner’s not a lawyer. Thank goodness for that! No one has to see him present his briefs in court. I guess I should feel sorry for him if he loses his day job and falls on hard times. But somehow I think he would enjoy the time off. If he was smart, he would turn his hobby into a career. He could follow in the footsteps of Eve Ensler and write a one-man play. Then he could present his “Weiner Monologues” to college coeds all over the country. (It’s a good thing he doesn’t read right-wing blogs. I’d hate to give him any ideas.)

  10. Airmail56 says:

    American Express card?

    He is more stupid than he looks.

  11. Dupree says:

    So he and his wife had a combined income of over $300,000 in 2010 alone, a sum that would take 5 or more years for most people to earn, and we are supposed to feel sorry for this classless POS? And they do not even need to save for health insurance or retirement either because we pay it for them! These limosine liberals really do look down on the rest of us. What a scumbag.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      But his wife is pregnant, you insensitive chauvinist. My god, you right-wing bible-bangers are great when it comes to using morality to justify your own position, but when someone is truly in need of sympathy and help, you have no clue. It doesn’t matter how much money they have…..being pregnant trumps all of that….she’s helpless and it’s gonna take a village to carry, give birth to and raise that child! Didn’t you read Hitlery’s book?

      *sigh* I think men DESERVE to get pregnant…that’ll teach ’em.


    • Dupree says:

      From their perspective, I don’t see the problem. Don’t liberals just abort inconvienient babies, and at the taxpayers expense?

  12. jimreport says:

    The wife might be pregnant, but we don’t know if Weiner or Hillary is the baby daddy.

  13. canary says:

    Weiner has put in for leave to go to rehab. I would think this would have cured him. Think his office needs to be investigated to see if has functioned at it ; in any form of capacity.

  14. xdannyh says:

    Jimreport: Aha!! a parallel George Costanza. How about this: Or maybe he could be a sports color guy….You know who talk while the show is on, hey he makes interesting comments. rotflmao……nice to know there is another Seinfled historian outthere, just like I told Weiner “keep up the good work”

    • jimreport says:

      Let’s see, (thinking) how shall I put this.

      Just put it.

      He took it out.

      (confused) He what?

      He took (blows on her glasses twice to clean them) it out.

      He took what out?


      He took It, Out?

      Yessiree Bob.

      He couldn’t.

      He did.

  15. Not so fast says:

    Why in the world is this guy bichin’? Didn’t Congress just raise the minimum wage not too long ago?

  16. BigOil says:

    Not qualified for any jobs? I’m not so sure. McDonalds is hiring – he can work for Big Burger. I believe Mr. Weiner would make an outstanding fry cook, as long as he can keep his stuff clear of the fryer.

    If that career move failed, he can always turn to job training programs Democrats are so fond of. Time for him to benefit from all his great Big Government Congressional work.

  17. bobdog says:

    Well, here’s a thought. Maybe he could go out and find a JOB and WORK for a living for once in his life. Like the rest of us poor white trailer trash. Might be something for him down at Home Depot. Or I hear Mickey D’s looking for qualified help…

    My heart just bleeds for the sorry Mr. Weiner. If I might make a suggestion, maybe he should just start walking and stop when somebody asks him “What the hell is wrong with your neck? Your momma a chicken or something?”

    Might make it as far as Queens.

  18. AmericanIPA says:

    Finally, something about Anthony Weiner that doesn’t make me sick: He isn’t a lawyer!

    Still, how can a worthless little putz with no skills, no personality and who isn’t especially bright put himself in a position to make $150/yr.? Of course: run for office. And that is what he’s planning in the future (mayor of NYC).

    Oh well, he’ll be fine. After all, there’s nothing like that “D” next to your name to make things that would otherwise ruin you disappear.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Those who can—do. Those who can’t—-teach. Those who can’t teach—-teach phys ed. Those who have absolutely no skills t’all, become politicians or bureaucrats.

  19. canary says:

    All those shovel ready jobs or his wife could pay for his education.

  20. tranquil.night says:

    So, I’m not sure what chapter we’re up to now in the book of civilizational self-destruction, but I’m not sure how much more absurd and cynical the storyline can keep getting.

    But I’m hoping these past couple weeks finally will come to be regarded as the ‘climax’ of Liberal’s control over the cultural narrative here for some time. I think the perfect storm of WeinerGate, the implosion of this fantasy of ‘recovery’ with the latest rounds of economic data, and the Media Mob’s latest failed attempt to crucify non-candidate dunce Palin might – just might – have shocked the American conscious enough to begin to understand with whom we’re dealing, then repealing them.

    Will it be in time? The more they realize that their fledling Socialist Revolution is inperil, the more they will cling to their power-driven illusions by any means necessary. It’s already alarmingly apparent.

    If the populist rage at Weiner is as much directed at his blatant cover-up attempt as his creepy behavior and refusal to resign, well then people need to understand this matter is small potatoes. The policies of this whole behemoth regime are screwing this country in a much more shocking and vulgar manner than one little Weiner. It’s been the intention, and they’ve nearly accomplished it by employing every lie, smear, political trick, straight to ramming it down the country’s throat. They create the standards by which others live, standards which they are above – because they are benevolent servants. This is who they are and it is no grand mystery. Conservative thinkers have been exhausting the subject to death seeking understanding.

    When the country is as much or more up in arms over naked Marxism than tweeted Weiners, that’s when we stand a chance at turning things around.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      In the last centuries and especially the last decades of what could still be called “Rome”, debauchery, thievery amongst officials and plain unacceptable behavior, even for Romans, was common. The taxes were too high, citizens had lost any degree of respect for their own government and general decay was everywhere. We’re not there yet but we don’t appear to be very far from it, either.

  21. untrainable says:

    He owes between $10,000 and $15,000 on his American Express card, according to his most recent financial-disclosure forms. … Aren’t you supposed to pay off American Express every month? I’m just asking.
