Weiner Roast

It's over.  Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY and NYC Mayor wannabe) went on CNN and was asked the easiest question he'll ever hear...if in fact his Twitter account was hacked as he claimed.  Courtesy @diggrbiii:
Dana Bash: "Is it you in the picture?" Weiner: "I'm not going to let myself get distracted..."

There's more from Mediaite:
One of Capitol Hill’s most media-friendly people, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, seems to be souring on the subject of his Twitter account, brushing off questions about his Twitter feed and the photo of a man in his underwear that was sent from that account. “I’m not going to talk about this anymore,” Weiner said Tuesday afternoon, in an exchange with journalists CNN described as “angry.”

It was clearly an unusually testy encounter for the usually cool and camera-friendly Democratic congressman. Weiner insisted the story that blew up over the Memorial Day weekend was nothing but a “distraction,” and that he would have nothing more to say about it, despite reporters repeated questions. “If I was giving a speech to 45,000 people and someone stood up and heckled in the back I wouldn’t spend three days talking to him. I’m going to get back to the conversation I care about,” he said.

With one reporter comparing the alleged hacking of Weiner’s Twitter account to a cyber attack on a member of Congress, Weiner was unmoved. “I’m going to return to the things I care about,” he said. “I’ve participated in the story a couple of days now. Given comments on it. This is a distraction and I’m not going to let it distract me.”
As I said in a previous post, it probably won't matter in the long run, but forever this guy will be both a congressman and an excitable underwear model.

Weiner will never have this investigated because he would then have to come up with a story about how the hacker must have gotten a hold of his blackberry.

Could happen to a nicer guy, but this is Weiner's turn.

My guess is Wiener will do nothing but let this cool off. It matters not whether he did it.Its heat and he wants it gone. Law suits go nowhere unless you get a guy solid on the hack. Maybe not.

Suddenly the schmuck who is responsible for the profligate waste, mismanagement & misappropriation of the people’s tax dollars wants to focus on the spending limits? This “distraction” should continue until the feckless liar tells the truth about his perversion. It is good that not all journalists are intimidated by a putz like Weiner. This embarrassing episode could not happen to a more deviant, hateful red diaper, anti-American neo-Marxist slime. I wonder if his schvantz is as ugly as he is.
