Too easy? Too obvious?

 

Newlywed New York congressman Anthony Weiner tried to private message a picture of his crotch to a 21-year-old Seattle co-ed. He made a one-character error that sent the link to all of his Twitter followers.

At least, that’s the way Bill Ockham explained it.

Rep. Weiner first said he didn’t know the girl. Then he said his account was hacked. Now, he’s calling it a “prank.”

He’s really not all that interested in talking about it.

No law enforcement agency has been called in. No suspects have been named (except in the leftwing blogosphere). Weiner has lawyered up and isn’t taking questions.

The only out I can see is if it’s actually an intern manning his Twitter account for him. But why he wouldn’t just admit it and drop the flunky in the shit, I do not know.

And if he’s going to invent said Mystery Intern, he’d better do it right quick.

Anyhow, I reckon Rep. Weiner could use some cheering up about now. I’m thinking of sending him a two-pack of Aunty’s Spotted Dick.

I’m thoughtful like that.

Limbaugh was talking about it as I came into work on his show, doing his level best to keep is straight and normal, but lets face it, double-entendre is unavoidable on this subject. It was all I could do to keep the car straight on the freeway, I was laughing so hard about it….

Apparently, Weiner is a real sanctimonious prick, so…ha ha, basically.

Also, the fact his name is “Weiner” proves that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Oh, yeah. Watch this YouTube of Weiner’s legislative performance art and tell me he doesn’t deserve everything he’s getting. Good and hard.

I wonder whose wiener, Weiner was twittering? I can’t believe he actually has one attached to his body…as in not an implant.

There is an official and repeated refusal to divulge whether the wiener in question is Weiner’s wiener. You’d think that one would be an easy “Hell, no! What are you, nuts?” And yet, it isn’t that easy. It leads a mind to wonder.

He’s lying. The place in Twitter to send a private message is in a whole other part of Twitter from the regular message space, and there isn’t any way to send a private message to “all your followers” from the private message area. And you can’t send a photo directly via the private message thing. You can send a link (typed out, as a tinyurl to keep down the character count). Or you can just tweet it via the regular Twitter screen, which means all your followers can see it. There’s no “one character mistake” possible. Sheesh. I don’t use Twitter all that much, and even I know that.

The only thing I can think of is whatever site he used to send the photo from (Yfrog? Twitpic? I really haven’t followed this) doesn’t have Twitter’s rather complex setup, and it’s easier to send a photo to all your followers via one click. But then it wasn’t really “from Twitter” at all, but from Yfrog, or Twitpic, or whatever it was.

I know! He sent it to her via the photo site, and forgot to uncheck “send to Twitter,” which would have revealed whatever he sent to all his followers. Is that what happened? Then that sounds more plausible. But that’s not someone “hacking” his account, that’s him being careless.

Anyway, the lesson from all this is: if you want to send a photo of your erection to a coed, send it in a plain brown envelope via snail mail, and for god’s sakes don’t put your home address on the envelope.

This whole thing is giving me a hard..

His most recent CNN appearance erases all doubt.
Couldn’t have happened to a better douche-bag.

SPOTTED DICK ALL AROUND!!
And when he resigns (please God, please God), or gets hauled up onto some ‘ethics’ board, I’ll be sending everyone in Weaselville a bottle of Knob Creek so we can all get cyber-drunk together.

Are you fucking kidding us?
This man has Power in congress, is a flag-bearer of the far left, and is next up for crowning as Mayor of NY.

This asswipe needs to be buried under three feet of porno mags and six foot of bullshit. That’s nine feet total.

@Mark- point taken. But deep inside, I continually look for and wish that one day, one of these POS’s finally pushes the public over the brink, in a ‘Tar and Feathers Half-Priced on Amazon. Rail and Shipping Free’ kinda way.

At Amazon, we can order “Aunty’s Spotted Dick” and “Grace Spicy Cock Soup” (on the same link). It describes the Spotted Dick as a steamed pudding. I can’t stop laughing.

Forgive me–this is OT, but. . .Ric Locke self-published a book last week and, wow, is it good!

http: //www.amazon.com/Temporary-Duty-ebook/dp/B00531CPHC/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1306609256&sr=8-11
(Mind the gap)

I will never again refer dismissively to self-publishing as “vanity publishing.” The book is readable and engrossing (and I don’t even like Sci-Fi most of the time!)

Gotta great cover, too.

Not to – heh! – put too blunt a point on it or anything, but…he seems to have a dick that’s already been rather comprehensively “spotted” –

That’s his hard and visible problem, y’know?…

(This is, indeed, the sort of incident for which the term “double entendre” was invented, I do believe…)

Boy, steve, if you really want to make THAT pick, you sure don’t understand American politics nor the US media. Look what letter follows the Weiner’s name. NOTHING will be done.

I adore this story. I can’t even BELIEVE his latest statement, “I didn’t tweet that, but I can’t be sure it’s not my junk.”

I mean, dude — once you’ve lied, go all in. Make it plausible, anyway.

 


Comment from Can’t hark my cry
Time: June 2, 2011, 12:11 am

I can’t even BELIEVE his latest statement, “I didn’t tweet that, but I can’t be sure it’s not my junk.”

Snort. NOBODY believes the statement itself, surely? What is more to the point is that you can’t believe he was dumb enough to make it. . .but sad experience teaches us that politicians are precisely that dumb. Let’s parse the statement, eh?

“can’t say with certitude”

If he were quite sure that there were no photos of him that would match the description of the notorious photo, then he could say with certitude. So “can’t say with certitude” means one or more of the following:

I have at some point taken such a picture of myself and placed it in a location which could be accessed by a prankster

I have at some point been in physical proximity to someone who had (or might have had) some form of camera, under circumstances when such a picture might have been taken

I might have, (da capo immediately above), but I don’t remember it.

None of those is anything but a dishonorable admission. Not, in my view, for moral reasons, but because (when the speaker is a politician or other public servant) they clearly demonstrate both arrogance and stupidity, neither of which is a desirable quality in either politics or public service.

Rep. Weiner first said he didn’t know the girl. Then he said his account was hacked. Now, he’s calling it a “prank.”

In fairness to Weiner, none of those are contradictory.

“I don’t know her” is shorthand for “of course I didn’t send it to her”, and “My account was hacked” is an explanation of how the picture got out at all – and “it was a prank” explains motive for the hacking.

They’re complementary parts of a unitary story.

That story might well be a damned lie – or it might just as easily be bad communication skills combined with surprise and actual innocence.

Beats me which it is.
