Weiner Thrown On The Grill [Updated Below]

29 May 2011 @ 18:37

Jeez Louise!  I go offline for twenty-fours hours and I miss the story about the biggest cock-up by a Congressional member is quite some time.

As Stacy McCain reported last evening:

New York Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner allegedly sent an alleged photo of his alleged penis to an alleged woman via Twitter.

The photo shows a man in gray undershorts with a bulging erection. Weiner is claiming he was the victim of Internet hackers, and I think we should believe him.

Because his penis is probably much smaller than that.

Is someone trying to give Peter, er, Andrew Weiner the shaft?  Is someone trying to make him a tool?  Or was this attack willie nilly?  Was someone trying to ding his dong?  Make a real putz out of the bloviating Bolshe?  Or is Weiner lying and giving us a cock and bull story?

I just asking questions here…that are waaay too easy to write.

Needless to say, Stacy McCain is all over this story is two very informative postings here and here.  Also, check out his Joe Friday-inspired ‘Just the facts’ reporting over at AmSpecBlog.

These posts are also well-worth reading, none of which are that schlong [apologies]…

-DaTechGuy has been doing some investigating.

Moe Lane

-Ace, trying to help out John Thomas, er Rep. Weiner [here, here, and here]

Velvet Hammer over at Ironic Surrealism [a new site I just discovered thanks to Stacy].  Also, this one.

-Ran is enjoying this too much.

Talk about hard news….

UPDATE on 30MAY at 0013…

-The woman on the receiving end of Weiner’s wiener pic has issued a statement and Stacy reports on it and the new questions it raises.

-Donald Douglas has more info here.

-Dan Collins has a very useful aggregation up.

So does Vicki over at the Frugal Cafe.

UPDATE on 30MAY at 1925…

-More reportage from Stacy McCain:

BREAKING: Weiner Lawyers Up!

-It seems to me that, after reading this posting of his, DaTechGuy should be awarded an honorary law degree:

I don’t claim to be a law expert if I had a client that wanted advice on what to do if someone hacked my account, the legal conversation I would have would be in two sentences:

“Call the police, that will be $1000.”

-Jim Hoft has a partial list, with pictures, of some of the, shall we say, pretty young things Weiner followed on Twitter.

-DrewM does a bang-up job subbing for a petered-out Ace.

-The Pagan Temple looked into some of the technical aspect of Twittering and offers an easy-to-understand report.  Bravo.

-Per usual, Vicki has got a damn fine aggregation brewing over at the Frugal Cafe.

    This story is starting to be covered by some of the mainstream media (finally) as of this morning (Monday, May 30). CBS News, Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, New York Daily News, New York Magazine, Seattle Post Intelligencer, Winston-Salem Journal, TMZ, and New York Times have picked it up. It’s going bonkers in the UK and Australia. Politico and FOX News were two of the first big ‘net news sources to cover it from Day 1.

    However, the usual left-wing sources are still hypocritically mute three days after the story broke.

    I did a Google search just now, and there is NOTHING whatsoever on this Weinergate story posted at Huffington Post as of this morning (hi, Arianna!), nor Media Matters (hi, George!) nor Daily Kos nor MSNBC nor CNN. No left-wing blog is mentioning it from what I can find.

    If this had been a Republican congressman, whoa boy — the leftwing media would have been on it like frenzied cats on a hapless cricket. But since it was a Democrat, they ignore it, hoping it will go away. No surprise.

    Bob – you win, hands down, for the best title on this Weinergate story I’ve seen yet – a punster extraordinaire! And thank you, dear man, for the link.

    Bob, you don’t want to end up like Ace with Weiner overload.

  5. 30 May 2011 @ 18:13 18:13

    I’m surprised. I thought you’d all be applauding a Congressman who could actually keep it in his pants.

    Maggie, it’s Memorial Day! Time to roast a Weiner on the end of something sharp.

    Seriously: Weiner=Foley.

    We could force this arrogant piece of work to resign, and resign he must. Over! Kaput! Finito! Done and stick a fork in him.

    MT: OOOPS. My humblest, most grovelous supplications of forgiveness.
    Bob: Thanks. Right.

    Thanks for the link again, Bob, and also I must say that I agree with Classic Film-that’s a brilliant title. As for the Congressman, like somebody over at Facebook said, all Weiner can do is prepare for the wurst.
