It’s possible that New York Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was simply suffering from low blood sugar when he verbally attacked a man who tried to shame him Wednesday as Weiner campaigned in an Orthodox Jewish section of Brooklyn.
After all, his left cheek was bulging like a chipmunk when he heard someone in the bakery call him a “scumbag.”
Or it could just be that he’s had it, sick of being moralized at by people who are too dense to grasp that Weiner, who has already apologized for his mortifying sexual improprieties and begged his wife for forgiveness, has Moved On.

Anthony D. Weiner, a leading candidate for mayor, on Tuesday confronted new allegations that he had engaged in raunchy online conversations with a woman after he had resigned from Congress over similar behavior.
Mr. Weiner seemed to acknowledge the behavior, saying, “Some things that have been posted today are true.” He did not deny that the conversations took place after he said he would seek treatment to end his pattern of sending sexually explicit words and images to women who were fans of his politics.
“These things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress,” he said in a statement issued Tuesday. He added, “This behavior is behind me.”
The allegations were posted on a Web site called The Dirty, which describes itself as a gossip and satire site, and which warns that its “postings may contain erroneous or inaccurate information.”
What’s up with all the sex addictions lately???? Anthony Weiner has entered rehab (probably under the advice of Ed Rendell, M.D.) to hopefully get a grip on his sex addiction and learn a few things about social media and what not to tweet!
Weiner notified Nancy Pelosi that he intended to give up his U.S.Congressional seat. Pelosi has been one of many Democrats, including POTUS Barack Obama, calling for Weiner to resign. This once rising star of Democratic politics has hit rock bottom. Last July, former POTUS Bill Clinton officiated at his wedding and now Democratic leaders cannot distance themselves from him fast enough. The Democratic leadership is afraid of how this scandal could hurt their chances in 2012.
It is hard to feel sorry for a grown man who does not have the self-control not to tweet or text pictures of his anatomy. Especially a newly married man who’s wife is expecting their first child. Hopefully Weiner will develop some more appropriate hobbies as the result of his stint in rehab.
Today, Weiner held a news conference in Brooklyn and officially resigned. He appropriately blamed himself for the predicament he “created”. Unlike politicians in Pottstown, who do inappropriate things and say they are “passionate”, Weiner took responsibility for his error in judgment. I at least give the guy credit for that!
