What The Cool Kids Are Saying About Anthony Weiner

You hear a lot of buzzing about Anthony Weiner's possible return to the game--some pro, some horrified--but I have to admit I'm quite OK with it.

Yes, sexting his noodle was indiscreet and trying to cover it up the whole thing was wrong, but by now Weiner's certainly been repentant enough, and besides, it was hardly a horrible crime in the first place.

But others are being harder on the guy, if not for the expected reasons.

No, they're not saying "He should never have sexted his weiner." Au contraire! They feel he didn't go far enough!

One performance artist told me the other night, "Weiner didn't even have the guts to fuck the women! What a wuss. I would have respected him more if he went all the way."

An interesting take--which basically amounts to, "If you're going to be indiscreet, don't be half assed about it. Fuck up in a big way."

Then she added, "Of course the women would have never fucked him anyway. He's gross."

That's where I had to differ. I think Ween-Ween is totally H-O-T hot, and I haven't even seen the sexts.

Compared to the behavior of most politicians, this is really no big deal.

Former Congressman Weiner's Twitter dalliance is none of my business.  My guess is that he and his wife may have had a chat or two about it, and that's where the "issue" belongs.

 However, his support for continuing Mayor Bloomberg's outrageous Stop and Frisk policy (after further defining what is and isn't allowed under the "program") is about as obscene as it gets.

Weiner's tumescent cock smothered in underwear: No Problem.

Weiner's repeatedly lying to his constituents and the world: Not Cool; Old School.

His lack of judgment is still fresh in my mind.  What he did was pretty juvenille, not something I would expect from someone seeking such a noteworthy position.  I dont think it should be his time yet.  He needs more time to mature and pay for what he did to his supporters.  you are still in time out kiddo!

this is  a hard call.  why, because I feel he has alot to offer the city but then having a sex scandal such like what he had tainted my view of him.  it was so juvenille and disrespectful.  There has to be something Weiner can do that is not noteworthy.

I'd vote for him then let him sit on my face.

I'd have been ready to vote for him as mayor but his poor judgement in doing what he did and how he handled the aftermath have changed my views. What other ethical lapses (and not just of the emailed photo kind) will take place in the future if he were "forgiven" and elected to office?


Will take a lot to change my mind.

I get it...I think he's medium/low hot, but a total douche...hence, not going "all the way."
