The Mainstream Media
Who does Congressman Weiner work for? An impartial outside observer might draw the conclusion that Weiner works for the mainstream media who rallied around him and tried to save their treasured colleague from disgrace and humiliation.
Those are the same people who send hoards of reporters to trail Sara Palin around, seize upon her every word and distort it; which dissects every nano-second of her private life from childhood on, etc., and actively shunned this story about a member of the Donkey party the way lepers were shunned in the Middle Ages.
The Mainstream Media seem to have a vested interest in keeping Weiner in power. They had to be brought to the story dragging their heels kicking and screaming while simultaneously not only echoing Weiners charges of hacking but themselves casting aspersions at everyone save Weiner.
Then, suddenly, Weiner’s press conf. was over (And notice that CNN muted the sound on Breitbart during his time at the podium. They couldn’t kill the feed, but they could kill the sound.) the chattering classes began the “personal tragedy” theme/”meme”–that this country is facing huge problems. We should now just MoveOn because this is all now a strictly “private matter” between “he and his wife.”
There was no outrage at the continual lies, the press conferences where Weiner continually ‘perjured’ himself to the American public. This is the same press that won’t carry the story that the most dangerous place to be black in America is in the womb, so we shouldn’t be surprised at the moral consistency.
Weiner is a Democrat. Democrats as a group operate under slightly different rules than the Republicans seem to. It’s not because either group is ethically or morally superior to the other, but rather because of the fellow travelers they’re with and the peer pressure they experience.
The Republicans courted the Christian vote, hence being Chris Lee and sending a photograph of your torso without a shirt to somebody you met on Facebook is considered worthy of resignation. Christian voters consider that rude and won’t stand by the folks who do it.
Weiner sends a picture of his courtin’ tackle to somebody who at least virtually had to go through the effort of accepting a handshake on Facebook, and does not think it’s an offense worth resigning for. How can anyone blame Weiner? Oh, sure he lied about it on camera again and again but how is lying something unusual for a lawyer and a Congressman?
Weiner is a member of the party that represents gays, transgendered, transexuals, atheists, pagans, agnostics, mimes, starving artists, any other minority fringe organization that can possibly be identified. He’s a member of the Party in Power in bankrupt California that always carries the votes in districts such as Haight-Ashbury, Berkeley, Castro, The Mission, and Fillmore. What are they going to do in Castro, put away their leather and chains and quit giving and voting for Democrats? They may support a different candidate next election, but not a different party, and being the incumbent has advantages.
Weiner may well be re-elected by New York voters.
Most Americans elect and re-elect people that they wouldn’t invite into their homes. Why is that?
Seriously. How many of you would want to have Barack and Michelle as house guests? What about Barney Frank and his “wife”?
Great post LL
I dunno if the media care about Weiner staying in office per se, more like just limiting the damage the the Left in general… of course another Dem could take his seat easily in NYC if he quit, and at this point most would be glad to get rid of him and get a fresh face in there asap
RR – you're correct. I think that most Democrats would throw him under the bus simply to stop the noise and the mud throwing.
Considering Weiner is a dick, logic would dictate that his supporters are jocks and his backside is hanging out there.
This morning Congressman Weiner's problem was the point of discussion. The first 20 minutes of the call in was limited to New Yorkers. The amusing thing was about 85% said he would be re-elected and they woudl vote for him. Then the call-in was opened to all and it was about 70% the other way. – Charlene
He sent some inappropriate pictures (he needs to hit the weights) and he's married. My guess – with his marriage – this is par for the course…I'm just sayin'. The REAL story is the flat out LIES…not a denial, LIES. He has no shame, and he's fine with that, so is the left. The MSM will talk about the pictures – and ignore the real story, the real insight into the character of our elected 'leader'…
Charlene – I think that the New York Democratic Party faithful feel that complete and blatant lies (see Race Bannon's comment) are simply par for the course. What that says for their perspective of ethics and integrity are something interesting.
For more of the emerging women of Weiner.
Democrats seem mad at the world and unhappy about everything, always. It's okay, they seem to say, to cheat, steal, rape and/or murder as long as you do it for a "liberal" cause. Watching "Democrat pundits" on TV is very depressing; they tend to have good words only for those who don't deserve them and they quote "facts" made up on the instant. Oh well, welcome to the 21st Century.
Good post- FWIW, CBS didn't even cover the story at all!!!
NFO – I think that CBS runs all the stories that they feel will enhance the Obama agenda. Clearly, this one didn't rise to that point.
WoFat – There has been NO budget from the Democratic Congress during the Obama years. Today the strategy is to propose nothing and criticize the Republicans for whatever they put forward. Since the Democrats aren't suggesting anything, there is nothing for the Republicans to get traction on. Politics at its finest.
Americans, americans..the paradise of pornography, the country with more sex offenders than any other, the paradise of pedophiles, of puritans obsessed by teenage sex, who condemns a man for unappropriate behaviour via twitter: you have built a country on sex obsessions, invaded the whole world with pornography, made entire countries brothels for soldiers like Thailand, but a picture sent via twitter is a horrible crime for you hypocrites.
Anonymous (is it Charlene this time or somebody else?) – Congressman Weiner LIED – and LIED – and LIED to the public, to whom is has an ethical responsibility not to lie.
UN PRESIDENT TIM KALEMKARIAN, US PRESIDENT TIM KALEMKARIAN, US SENATE TIM KALEMKARIAN, US HOUSE TIM KALEMKARIAN: BEST MAJOR CANDIDATE.
