If this had been a Republican, they would have spared us all the coverage and resigned immediately. Not because Conservatives are better people, but because they have higher standards and morals, and everyone knows it.
If, like the Left, you barely have morals, and they can shift and change as needed, then the liberal would say you don’t have to answer for your “indiscretions”. You just have to make a statement and whine that people won’t leave you alone. Lying, sex addictions, internet porn, etc., are only a problem because the Religious Right doesn’t think we need perverts running our country, right? Blame the side that dared to expect something better out of the people who write our laws and spend our money.
It may not pan out for the left this time, however. Of all the politicians in Washington, Weiner is probably the least likely to survive a scandal like this. Not because of his name, as some liberals will claim, but because he’s judged everyone on the right in the harshest terms for years, and is known for his self righteous judgement of those he doesn’t agree with politically. Before he criticized Glenn Beck’s ethics because of who advertizes on Fox, he should have made sure he wasn’t such a hypocrite.
New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (WEE’-nuhr) says racy, shirtless pictures that appeared on a website are him and he’s apologizing for what he calls making terrible mistakes.
During a teary-eyed press conference, he says he won’t resign.
