I would like to hold that question to the famous "Anthony Dick" test.

In other words what would Congressman "Penis" be saying from the floor of the House if the Congressman who had done what he has admitted to doing was from the other party.

Yeah, I thought so..................

Enjoy your forced retirement, you worm!

Colbert had some fun with the fact of Elliot Spitzer leading his show with this issue. LOL. How can CNN put Spitzer on the tube and expect anyone to listen to anything that knucklehead has to say.=? :? :? :?

Don't bet the rent, Corsair. Since he finished college, everything Weiner has ever done has been in government. He's not going to quit; it's all he knows. Besides, he needs the money. He's 46 and his wife is pregnant. Unlike a lot of other members of Congress, he doesn't even have a law degree to fall back on. So what viable skills could he offer to a prospective employer? (I mean, other than as a lobbyist.) The Democratic leadership in the House apparently isn't going to force him out. And a poll this week of his constituents found that only 33 percent of respondents said he ought to resign. So until such time as he is convicted of having committed some crime and sent to prison, he stays.

I think we can expect him to keep a (ahem) lower profile from now on, though -- barring a landslide victory by the Democrats in November 2012. If that happens, he'll no doubt go back to being the arrogant, insufferable jerk he has always been.

Well, what do you know? Nancy Pelosi has changed her tune and now wants Weiner outta there. And that beacon of wisdom and moral clarity, party chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, says his continued presence in Congress is "untenable" and "an untacceptable distraction." Apparently, his Twitter exchange with the 17-year-old girl was the last straw. Before that came to light, what he'd done was OK. Now it's not.

So, Corsair, maybe it's safe to bet the rent after all.

He needs to resign now. Isn't it amazing how so many of these guys with power mess up. In todays communication speed and public domain, we will continue to see some amazing exposures (sorry for the pun) in the future. At least no wide stance here.

Bill Maher had a very interesting recitation (w/ Jane Lynch) of one of the cyber- exchanges on Friday's Real Time. Do not watch with those who are easily offended by randy language.

Looks as though it's a done deal now. Politico is reporting that Weiner has decided to go -- perhaps as soon as this afternoon. The main question becomes: In this economy what does he do for a paycheck once he completes rehab? Perhaps some lobbying firm will hire him. (Can't you just picture him calling on former colleagues in the House to advocate on some piece of legislation after what he did?)

Or, better yet, CNN or MSNBC might give him a talk show, like Elliot Spitzer.

What is it with these guys? Here in Massachusetts, in less than a week, we've had a newly elected state representative caught having sex with a female aide on the floor of the House chamber . . . at 4 in the morning. And, yesterday, a jury found the ex-speaker of the House guilty of bid-rigging and kickbacks. He's 65 and looking at up to 10 years in prison. He is the third speaker in a row to be convicted of a felony.

What a country!

Wilton, it's starting to look like you see everything through the prism of your JD degree? Yes?
