Seriously—don’t wait until the last minute to get a costume together this year.
And it will be called The Weiner Monologues. A devised Greek tragedy.
“If he really had an interest in improving the city of New York, he wouldn’t be exposing us to having to explain to our children what it is he did that made him a celebrity,” Republican candidate George McDonald says.
“He would always compliment me on my breasts, my ass.”
In a 2001 C-SPAN interview, when asked about books that are important to him, Weiner answered Bonfire of the Vanities, which features Lawrence Kramer, an egotistical lawyer who fantasizes about cheating on his wife and is ultimately removed from his big case for an inappropriate relationship with his boss. “This might get me in some trouble,” Weiner said before launching into his answer.
Anthony Weiner may be stealing the show, but he’s hardly the only New York politician that’s become engulfed in scandal over the last few months.
Yesterday, Barbara Morgan, a spokeswoman for embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, apologized for reportedly calling Olivia Nuzzi, an intern on Weiner’s mayoral campaign, a “slutbag,” “bitch,” “twat,” and “cunt.” Nuzzi appeared on the cover of the Daily News Tuesday morning for a story she wrote about what she described as her less-than-desirable experience working for the Weiner campaign earlier this year.
“If someone wants to come out with something embarrassing about you in your private life you got to talk about that a little bit.”
“I am proud to stand side by side with Rand Paul.”
A woman confronted Anthony Weiner Friday, questioning his run for office. “As a former New York City Department of Education employee — 21 years as a teacher, 9 years as an assistant principal — had I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yours, my job would have been gone,” the woman said.
Reza Aslan, a religious scholar with a Ph.D. in the sociology of religions from the University of California and author of the new book Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, went on FoxNews.com’s online show Spirited Debate to promote his book only to be prodded about why a Muslim would write a historical book about Jesus.
Sometimes you do get good follow suggestions.
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting alter ego has been revealed, and it turns out he’s just as impressive as his name sounds.
Could “Carlos Danger” undermine the Democrats’ message with women? The RNC is trying to make sure he does.
Anthony Weiner = Sexting King Kong.
The woman who exchanged sexts with Anthony Weiner would “preferably like compensation” for interviews.
It gets worse. Yesterday’s papers were kind of lackluster, but today’s covers were outrageous.
Don’t click this unless you want to see them. There’s no going back.
As CNN’s Wolf Blitzer says “only in New York.”
According to The Dirty, he last contacted the woman on the other half of his newest scandal earlier that month.
“The bottom line is that the ‘news’ today is about my past life,” he wrote to supporters. “New Yorkers don’t quit, and I’ll never quit on you.”
The internet never misses an opportunity to make a quick buck from a political scandal.
Nothing really tops “Carlos Danger,” though.
Plus a look inside the first-ever Google Glass porn (starring James Deen!), photos of Queen Elizabeth before she was a great-grandmother, and a brief guide to the world of “Blurred Lines” YouTube parodies.
UPDATED: A progressive activist from Indiana in her early 20s who identifies herself online as “Sydney Leathers” and “sidneyelainexo” is the woman whose online profile is linked to the latest Weiner scandal. Weiner, she wrote, could “continue sending dick pics every single day.”
Real Danger at the Carlos Danger press conference.
There are some real-life Carlos Danger imitators out there.
The embattled former congressman said some of the illicit messages and photos he sent came after he resigned from office. He said he would stay in the New York City mayoral race.
But Anthony Weiner’s “notoriously private” wife is on the campaign trail with her husband — a calculated sacrifice from the woman who has already been through hell, and could see more of it yet. “She wants Anthony to win.”
