When I was presented with the concept of Anthony Weiner’s further indiscretions having some impact on the Clintons, the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s impending Presidential run in 2016 – I had to laugh because it’s nothing short of sheer ironic poetry.
Everyone that I spoke with had the same feelings: apathy, amusement and a deep abiding desire to make sure that “Sir Anthony” gets some of the same heartburn that he’s been giving the country. In President Obama’s wake, Weiner has quietly become the poster child for the self absorbed, spendaholic, tone deaf, abusive Democratic Party.
Recently, in Washington, there was a meeting between the President and Hillary Clinton to speak about “the Junk in Weiner’s Trunk” (i.e., the baggage that Mr. Weiner has brought to the forefront). The “Junk” that no one in the Democratic Party wants to deal with; the Obamas or the Clintons “book two.” It doesn’t matter whether the turmoil starts now and drags into the next Administration. If any Democrat pokes his head out of the Oval Office anytime between now and 2016 it will be a whack-a-mole-athon and both Republicans and Democrats will be wielding a mallet.
Outside Washington, it has come to my attention, that the male populous in the U.S. seems to have a great take on what should happen to the beloved Anthony Weiner – NYC Mayoral candidate. It has been suggested that every male in America that is so inclined, should take a very personal photograph of their most intimate member and email a photo to Mr. Weiner. After all, we know how fond of this type photographic evidence Mr. Weiner appears to be. This is intended to accomplish several things: (a) to show support for his lack of discretion, and (b) to show “Mr. Danger” that there are many more gifted males out there among his constituents then he can possibly imagine.
But the best reason to consolidate all these photographs of people that “Weiner” or the “Couple Weiner” have been close to is, so that the rest of us looking at these photographs know how to steer clear of the biggest weiners now and in 2016.
With input like that, we will have absolutely no problem identifying any number of Weiners, with or without the bun; and with any luck at all, Mr. Danger will CC the President.
