Anthony Adverse

 Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are trustees; and both the trust and the trustees are created for the benefit of the people.

 –General Ethical Standards, House of Representatives

 “I’m deeply regretting what I have done and I am not resigning. I have made it clear that I accept responsibility for this, people can draw conclusions about me and are free to do so.”

–Anthony Weiner

Given his unfortunate name, the opportunities for ribaldry regarding Congressman Anthony Weiner’s antics are abundant–I shall refrain. He has adequately disgraced himself and it may be impossible to further disgrace his profession.  When even a harlequin like Nancy Pelosi urges an investigation, no further debasement is possible.  The first rule on the first page of the General Ethics Standards for members of the House of Representatives states that “Members, officers, and employees of the House should conduct themselves at all times in a manner that reflects creditably on the House.”  Weiner has admitted to behavior more appropriate to an inebriated high school Lothario than to a United States Congressman.  If he will not resign voluntarily, his departure must be made obligatory.

  1. He definitely has to go. He is a disgrace and he has disgraced the House of Representatives. What kind of man can do these kinds of things and then we his secret gets out his decision is to lie and lie and lie and when that doesn’t work he admits the truth but his decision is not to resign? Unbelievable. How can he face his colleges?

      He even looks like a cornered rat. His colleagues are people like Pelosi & Barney Frank, though, so I doubt he’ll have much trouble facing them.

    He says he’staking responsibility for this, yet he won’t resign?

    Says he’s sorry and has a deep problem. Says he didn’t know what he was thinking at the time. Really? Try perv sex as I’m sure that is what he was thinking. He even shed a bunch of tears today at the press conference reminding me of Speaker Boehner. OMG now we have TWO cry babies in Congress! Imagine what our enemies are thinking? We just keep giving them more proof that we are sissified wimps in this nation. No wonder they are no longer afraid of us. If Weiner is so sorry then he should resign. The mere fact that he refuses to resign tells me he’s NOT that sorry about what he did. Of course I figured that out last week when he was joking about the Wiener pic sent on Twitter telling reporters he was feeling a “little stiff” the day before and telling them the pic “could be” or “might be” his member but maybe not. He thought the whole thing was funny and I’m sure today’s crying session was just another comedy show starring Anthony Weiner!

    From Hope n’ Change Cartoons:

    In the least surprising news of the week, Democrat Anthony “Bulging” Weiner admitted yesterday that he is a perverted scumbag who enjoys sending sexually graphic photos to women he contacts over the Internet, that he has been lying his ass off about it, and that he won’t step down from his position because his actions were…a mistake.

    And laughably, he seemed to feel that he shouldn’t be blamed harshly for all the damage he’s done because he hadn’t “planned” to hurt anyone. He just “planned” to get his rocks off enjoying anonymous Internet sex with women whom he believed were “probably” not minors, as well as trying his best to destroy the careers of the journalists (notably Andrew Breitbart) who reported the story.

    So let’s see…he’s a self-confessed liar, a pervert, a sexual predator, and a man who would surely violate his oath of office as readily as he violated his (very recent) marital vows.

    If the Democrats find this to be beneath even their standards of decency, we should soon see an internal push to throw Weiner out of office.

    And if not, the American people won’t need to check their Twitter accounts to see all Democrats as nakedly immoral.

  5. He deeply regrets that he was busted……..

    Arm congress.
    It’s becoming as bad as the middle east.
    Time to start over.

  7. J. P. Morgan says:

    Guys like him will do anything to stay in power and feed their egos. Cheat. Then lie. Then sob for forgiveness when the lying fails or is exposed (sorry). I see Charlie Rangel is still in Congress. I see Wm Clinton, the lying bastard that he was, right there on TV, my President, looking me right in the eye and telling me he wasn’t the principal player in a third rate porno act–but everyone still loves ole Billy. Then there is Edwards, the lying, cheating bastard who threw his dying wife under the bus while trying to be our next President. Sick of them, I’m sick of them all. May they rot in hell. And may their liberal apologists rot there with them.

      Amen, JP. They deserve nothing but contempt, every one of ’em. The enablers, the aiders & abetters, they’re just as bad as the lowlifes they defend.
