You have to be f*cking stupid

You have to be f*cking stupid to try to use Twitter for private messaging, just like Facebook.

And "Weiner"? Seriously?

Fail indeed

But a win for nominative determinism.

Yeah...

The best part, of course, is watching all of the people who so rabidly defended this guy - they're having to, basically, admit that they were either really gullible or really dishonest.

His press conferences were so bad as to set the standard, and his excuses (along with the really stupid "hacked" claims) were so poor that it was almost embarrassing for the rest of us.

Not embarrassing enough to get people to stop making fun of him, but pretty far up the scale.

Great title!

Just a minor cavil:

How can it be cock up, if weiner is deflated?

Gosh I love your headline

You should have a headline contest. Have the readers vote. Give an iPad to the winner.

Re: Gosh I love your headline

I agree with needing a headline contest. Coming up with Bin Laden porn titles was fun and this should be too. I'll start us off:

Weiner not hacked, but appears to be circumcised

Weiner's career goes limp

Press has a hard-on for Weiner

Weiner takes a beating in public eye

Fellow Congressmen say Weiner acted like a prick

Weiner caught red-handed

At least 6 fooled around with Weiner online

Weiner caught, feels the pain

Weiner rubs public the wrong way

Slick Willie conducted Weiner wedding

Proof

Pols from either party don't have the common sense of a deer tick. I think it's time to follow politicians around with cameras 24/7 and broadcast it as reality TV. We could call it DC Daft.

Hot Dog...

There is nothing better then watching a politician squirm when they are caught out. Why do they even try to lie about these things, he might have got away ok if he just held his hands up and admitted it!

A friend of mine wrote this

Over here, it is something that might be attributed to Dr. Seuss, but on your side of the pond, Gilbert and Sullivan might be more appropriate. Anyway, I reproduce it her for your enjoyment. (He said it could be shared freely):

"Did Weiner tweet his wiener?" all the Twitter tweeters natter.

If it wasn't Weiner's wiener, does the wiener tweeting matter?

All the chatter is it *must* be Weiner's wiener up on Twitter.

If it was poor Weiner's wiener his career is in the shitter,

'Cause the Twitter tweetee tweeted to was recently a teener,

And though tweeting twentysomethings isn't e'en a misdemeanor,

Tweeting recent teens your ween's like being seen upon the sofa

With the sitter by the missus (who is Mrs Clinton's gopher)

And the Clinton missus gopher's tweeting hubby, Tony Weiner

Must be seen as clean as snow not cheating so by tweeting wieners.

So if Weiner's keen on keeping that sweet seat he got from Schumer

Or his wife (the Clinton gopher, who my sources claim is "Huma")

Then he'd better beat the charge of tweeting meaty genitalia

And confirm his clean demeanor or else plead a moral failure.

What's the big deal?

I fail to see how this is a big deal. How does someone's personal actions have any bearing upon their ability to do their job (as long as they don't drink heavily the night before they need to make important decisions)? It's stupid that he lied about it, but I can see why he did given the furore that always crops up around this sort of crap.

Generally

While I agree with you on a general basis, I think you'll find that politicians and religious leaders often see themselves as guardians of our morals (particularly when it comes to matters pertaining to the jiggy-jiggy stuff).

When they are caught behaving no better than everyone else (or in most case, much worse) while telling us that we're all very naughty and passing daft laws such as those that make cartoons into kiddie porn in the eyes of the law, then they very much need a good hoofing in the press.

I don't think they should be kicked out of office, though. It's not as if this kind of thing makes someone unsuitable to vote about a proposed new bus route, but they should be something to remind people in future that they are taking a hypocritical stance.

Once you've made yourself a laughing stock,

you might as well step down, as no one will take you seriously anymore.

like Mr. Lee did.

Of course, he did it immediately. Dickhead...I'm sorry, Mr. A. Weiner, denied it was his, claimed to have been hacked, but never contacted the police, because then he'd have ended up charged with fraud or somesuch.

I'm curious, did he send this picture to her on his wedding night? Or on a night where Mrs. Clinton kept his wife working late?
