You've all heard the stories of Anthony Weiner, the Congress-critter(D) from NY who texted his hard-on to an internet gf, was thrown out of congress for lewdness and is now running for Mayor of NYC.

The latest batch of iSex photos hit the interwaves this week. He warned the world they were coming. Yet he still seems to think he's a viable candidate to replace Bloomberg.

What's his deal?
Are NYer's just not terribly concerned with their leaders personal lives (although seemingly lacking scruples, the guy is reportedly a pretty effective politician)?:7 (36.8%)
Are the denizens of the Big Apple that forgiving?:0 (0.0%)
Or is Weiner just nuts?:9 (47.4%)
choice 4 -Pick Your Own:3 (15.8%)
Total:19


Should he continue on the campaign trail or step-aside?

If you were/are a voting citizen of NYC, would/will you vote for him?

I'll vote for him if only to get the news of him sending pictures to other mayors.

Weiner believes he's the Boa Hancock of politicians.

Honestly, IMO, IDGAF what my politician does in their personal time, as long as they pretend to represent me and my neighbors while taking kickbacks from corporate lobbyists and embarking on numerous vacations at my taxpaying expense.

Usually I'm a "Politician's Private Lives Should Be Private, It's Their Official Lives That Should Matter To Us" kind of person. But in this case sending pics around while he's in the public spotlight shows a worrying lack of control and level of stupidity. If he owned it, citing an open marriage and a streak of exhibitionism, then that would be all fine by me. But noooo, he's all sorry for having being caught, having made it all but certain he'd be caught.

The pictures aren't even the most amusing part of the story. It's so ridiculous that it's difficult to even take serious. Almost like it's intentional just to get some free publicity.

He was running a healthy lead in several polls before this latest batch of news. So I don't blame him for trying to stay in and hope that time helps him recover. I still think he's a goof though.

His willingness to be honest (albeit after the fact) is kind of refreshing in a modern-family sort of way.

I mean come one, *** is a driving force in our species, our societies and surely our leaders (they be virile!). It's rather disingenuous to pretend it's not.

Is that what everyone's doing?

I think the general issue (certainly not mine, IDGAF) is his lack of discretion, a quality valued in leadership.

The general issue is whether or not Nyers care about electing a known pervert.

Why did you leave out the pee?

We're all perverted in our own little perverted ways.

No we're not. If there is no way to measure how can you expect to distinguish between what is and isn't normal?
Earthwindfireandpoop shall be the standard upon which we measure normal.

Well, that and what he's doing is so moronic, one wonders why he's continuing to do so even after suffering negative consequences the first time. I mean, I get someone having an affair. It happens. I get people with drinking or drug problems. But what the **** kind of compulsion must someone have to continue to send pictures and sexually explicit text messages to people? The first time, you could even possibly chalk it up to him being stupid and not realizing that he was using quite possibly the most likely to become public medium in existence to do things that most people might not approve of, while working in an industry where you want people to approve of what you do. Ok. Could just be dumb as a rock. But to continue to do so after losing his job for it the first time?

All he has to do is *not* send sexually explicit pictures and texts. If he's got such a lack of self control that he can't manage that, maybe he's not such a great choice for Mayor (or any position of authority).

He's an exhibitionist. He's probably at home getting off right now about the idea that the national media is so interested in his *****.

Not really any different than those girls on Reddit/GW, or the guys on Chat Roulette. Other than he's a politician.

Like I said, lack of discretion. Really doesn't require so many words to define.
