For two days, I’ve looked for the perfect post on Anthony Weiner’s (alleged) boner Twitpic – I found it

Before offering my thoughts on Anthony Weiner’s Memorial Day Weekend to Remember, I want to quote from a perfect piece by Datechguy. This is the only piece you need to read about the Weiner’s Tweeting habits, though there is plenty of other great reporting out there. Click the link and read the whole thing. Here’s a choice cut:

Yet until 48 hours ago she was one of the under 200 people Congressman Wiener followed on Twitter.

Run that through your head for a second.

In the last 24 hours her facebook account has disappeared. Her twitter account have disappeared. Her byline has disappeared from college papers.This shows someone is taking great pains to remove her from the net.

If one wants to believe the congressman’s story one can say she is just trying to avoid further unwanted publicity. One might be able to rationalize that.

One can’t rationalize the fact that until all of this came out, a New York Congressman of some national prominence was following her on twitter. I’m 48 years old and was impressed by being followed by Dana Loesch and Kathryn Lopez tell me how impressed a 20 something year old college girl would be by being followed by a congressman 3000 miles away?

Anyway…

Unless you watch “Imus in the Morning,” your exposure to Anthony Weiner might only consist of when he is in full, smug attack-dog mode. TV-wise, he’s actually quite charming – I’d never support him for office or give him a dime, but he’s not an off-putting Donkey, at least when he’s on Imus. I doubt this sticky situation will derail his political career – of younger Gen-X pols, he’s among the best on the Left currently playing AAA ball, so to speak.

I’ll also tell you that unlike when Bill Clinton was in office, I no longer care who or what politicians screw, are trying to screw etc, I just expect them to not let it ruin their ability to make decisions once they get caught – Weiner’s already falling prey to this, and the fact that the girl he sent the picture too is being wiped from Google as we speak shows how far his staff is reacting to this.

I’m not sure when it happened, but a politician’s sex life is immaterial to me – if they’re fucking scoundrels, they already were before I knew who they were, and it should be easy to spot. I called John Edwards’ scumbagginess a mile away, and even his (and his wife’s, I should add) exploitation of her cancer while he was out fathering a bastard child didn’t make me despise him more – the man’s not worth shooting, just let him cower in a hotel bathroom like he did when The Enquirer caught up with him.

Part of the draw to Big Politics is money, part of it is power, and I guess the rest of it is, um, being on TV and stuff. I have no interest in being on TV and my interest in money is pretty limited, but if the women come after the power, that’s where I’d be. If an electorate was desperate or crazy enough to send me to D.C., um…

[flipping through extremely offensive analogies…]

…then the caliber of nailing on Capitol Hill I would be involved in would put what happened on Golgatha 2,000 years ago to shame.

My Secret Service codename would be Thor.
And so on.

Trudat.

So, if he is a man and he is in Washington – especially at Weiner’s age – then I expect the screwing around to be … expected. I’ll also be perfectly honest with you: I see absolutely nothing wrong with politicians fucking everything that moves, so long as a) it’s consensual and b) it’s not explicitly attached to decision-making or promotion.

There is a certain type of young man and young woman attracted to life on the Hill – not all of them, but a whole lot of ’em – and it has nothing to do with serving their country and learning about civics. Some people get off on being around power, and the fastest way to do that is to have parents who know people who can get you an internship in D.C. I know a lot of people who’ve worked on the Hill since college, and most of them aren’t this type of person – but some of them are.

Before you have a gut-level reaction to what I’m saying, I’ll state it plainly: Our culture is getting more feminized by the day, and every time a young flower loses her idealism after being banged by a Congressman in the stall of a four-star bathroom, masculinity has won a tiny little battle even as it loses a Very Big War.

What does that have to do with Weiner?

Not much for now – he sent a pic in boxer-briefs of his fairly erect penis to a girl who writes for a college newspaper 3,000 miles away (Datechguy’s piece linked above explains why that is significant, so I will not. What I will say is if you’re going to go down or get embarrassed, the girl should at least be in the same town.

Trudat.

Weiner flaccid coverup is getting hammered – the Left is equal parts Ignore Made, Shift-Blame Mode and Whodat Modee, but it’s not going to work. I have nothing personal against Weiner – on the list of Lefty villains in this country, he doesn’t even rate a footnote – and I’d prefer to have him there than a Donkey who I’ve never heard of that’s probably a worse person than he might be.

Soooo…

Why would he send such a Twitpic, and if he was hacked, well, that’s just stupid.

Also: Why would anyone marry someone who was an aid to HRC? That makes no sense unless he’s secretly gay, and I don’t think he’s secretly gay.

Also: Do you care about this story besides the Weiner/wiener humor involved. Yes, it is already demonstrating media bias, but really, did you need evidence of that? I’m curious – I’ve read enough about it to actually be interested in it, but at the end of the day, it’s just plain funny.

Imus should be damn funny on Tuesday morning.
