Yes, Weiner is a wiener

Anthony Weiner (D-NY) takes questions from the media

When are guys like these going to learn that it's the lies and the cover-up that get you in the end and that NOTHING IS PRIVATE ON THE INTERTOOBZ?

Also, note to some on the left: We are supposed to be reality-based. Some bloggers were beginning to look like birthers as they twisted themselves into pretzel-like shapes defending Weiner (I do not fault anyone, however, from being initially skeptical given the source). I'm thinking here of a recommended Daily Kos diary post in particular which attempted to show that the photo was Photoshopped. The diarist said they had been using Photoshop since '93 -- well, so have I and I didn't see what you were seeing which is why I never linked to it.

Lastly, Weiner is a wiener because he managed to throw some credibility to Andrew Breitbart -- a man who took over the presser demanding an apology from Weiner -- who has yet to apologize to Shirley Sherrod or ACORN.

Just UGH all the way around.

You know, Glenn Greenwald makes a strong case that a) this issue is really nobody's business (especially since nothing illegal and b) that most, if not all, of the pundits who are judging Anthony Weiner could not stand detailed scrutiny of their hard drives.

That said, this story is out there and is not going to get better (and might get worse). I think Weiner needs to resign. His continued presence in Congress will distract from whatever message he would like to advance.
