Weiner's Weiner

I had a really bad day yesterday.  I was heading in to work and just about to get on the exit ramp for the Beltway when my car started to lose power.  Fortunately I was able to pull off on the shoulder before it stopped completely.  It was a little disconcerting sitting in the car waiting for the tow truck watching cars whipping down the exit ramp driving on the shoulder and wondering if they would avoid hitting me.   About the only good thing about where I ended up breaking down was that it was conveniently located to my mechanic. 

I really did not want to end up taking the day off from work because I have a lot going on in the office, but I had to get the car taken care of.  I have known my mechanic for several years now, and he has always been a straight shooter.  He once told me that I should consider getting rid of one car because of the things going wrong with it, and he once saved me a lot of money on a break job on my wife's car by finding the best price possible on new brake rotors.  In the end, I needed to get the fuel pump replaced, taking a sizable bite out of my bank account.

As bad as my day was yesterday, at least it wasn't as bad as Congressman Anthony Weiner's (D-NY) day.  I didn't have to get up in front of television cameras to be broadcast nationwide and admit that I am a liar and a pervert.  It probably wouldn't surprise you that I am not a fan of Weiner.  I had seen him a few times on television, and I have always felt like he was a petulant and arrogant asshole.  I once tweeted, and I am sure that I am not the only one to say this, but that I felt that Weiner certainly lived up to his name.  Little did we know.

When the news broke about the pictures being sent on Weiner's Twitter account, and he claimed that his Twitter account  had been hacked, I thought that it could be plausible.  Of course the more he put himself out there talking about the incident, the less I believed him, especially when he said he could not confirm nor deny that the photo was not him.  It was reported that there were more revealing photos that had been sent and to be released, so I guess he decided to come clean and admit his indiscretions.

Since I happened to be home yesterday due to the car problems, I was watching the local news when the press conference came on.  Even though I am no fan of Weiner, I didn't take pleasure in watching his sobbing confession.  In fact, a small part of me actually felt a little sorry for him, though I got over it quickly.  It astounds me when people like him do this sort of thing thinking they won't eventually get caught.  It is the height of stupidity and arrogance.

  1. Could it be that this is another example of our Heavenly Father trying to get us to realize that we are not as much in control of our actions as most would like to believe? For who in their right-mind could possibly think that a high-profile individual could get away with even just sexting (let alone posting lewd pictures) in this day and age?

  2. As Johnny Cash sang in "God's Gonna Cut You Down,"

    But as sure as God made black and white, what's done in the dark will be brought to the light."

  3. I'm certainly as guilty as anyone taking pleasure in mocking the Dork's dork.

    That said, I think it is time to put the weiner to bed.

    In closing, did you catch the end of Glenn Beck tonight[wednesday][Mister Cain was awesome btw]. Glenn ended by telling the audience...'Mrs. Weiner is pregnant'. This brings truly awful to a really awful situation.

    I don't feel sorry however! Aloha FSSF.
