I like Anthony Weiner and his brand of politics. No holds barred. Fiery.
And then he had to go and do something stupid and classless like having inappropriate online conversations with women not his wife, some underage apparently, and some conversations including risque photos. Worse than that — far worse than that — he made Andrew Breitbart look somewhat respectable.
So…. after finally fessing up, what now? Weiner says he's not going to resign. And I think that is good. I don't think politicians should be held to a higher moral standard unless of course they hold themselves and others to that standard. Weiner was never the sanctomonious holier-than-thou type, and now we know that he doesn't have good reason to be. In other words, the status is quo.
But of course, this may not be his choice. There will be motions to censure, calls for criminal investigations, etc. The GOP will not rest until they have their head.
Oh, Anthony. You and John Edwards. What the hell were you thinking? WERE you thinking?
