I’m sorry… I’m still obsessed with Weiner gate.
Yesterday the NY Post reported:
Pressed for specifics, the prickly pol said, “I sought the help of my wife. And like problems that people had, this one thankfully is behind me and this one hasn’t recurred and the facts to a large degree have not changed.”
“Do you think I did not know that when I got into this race that there was a possibility that something like this would happen?” Weiner said, referring to the new round of revelations with Leathers.
“If [the voters] believe this is disqualifying, if they believe this embarrassing personal behavior means they will never vote for me, I understand that.”
I know that mindfuck! We need to catalog these things. This one is If You Thought I Was That Sort of Person, You Wouldn’t Be With Me.
You’re with me? Well, that’s evidence that I’m not That Sort of Person.
And insofar as I am that sort of person? Well, it’s behind “us.” I might (qualified) have been that sort of person, but I’m not now and evidence of that is that you are with me and not holding it against me yet, so we’re all okay, right?
Does your head hurt yet? It’s totally Alice in Wonderland!
I also want to know why no one has asked Weiner about his ability to fake remorse. Gee, you sure seems contrite and sure you were all better… when, uh, now you’re admitting there were as many as 10 other “inappropriate” relationships we don’t know about. (Read, there’s more than 10.)
Weiner is making the public chumps! He’s not saying “I’m not worthy, I’m going to step down.” He thinks he’s splendid. YOU are going to have to divorce HIM. Hey, voters, if you don’t have what it takes to reconcile… if you’re all a bunch of quitters… go ahead…
