A Sad Moment

“The picture was of me, and I sent it”.  Thus spoke Mr Anthony Weiner (R-NY).

Am I the only Republican who is sad about this?  I hope not.

Yes, Rep Weiner is a jerk.  Especially in the Well of the House, when he is trying to make some point.  He is a totally over the top politician.  But, still, it diminishes us all a little when one of those 535 men and women does something stupid, especially something stupid of a sexual nature.

Here is the take from The Washington Post.

There is an Ann Althouse take on the media-story, but, frankly, it is a totally different issue.

As for the Representative, he is now in the hands of his wife and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  The rest of us should give this a rest for a while and await the outcome of the House Ethics Committee Investigation.

The House has more than a few members that approach the place like a carnival.

Some don't get re-elected like Alan Grayson. Some will diminish themselves and demure, like Anthony Weiner will.

Some hire Ed Rollins, so she can run for POTUS.
