The first five seconds made me gasp.
My issue, turns out, is not what Anthony Weiner does behind closed doors. With the doors wide open, he’s vile.
Imagine if there was a Quinn, or a DeBlasio, or a Thompson video containing disrespect toward a voter (or anyone really, without that kind of political power). Watch the press attack their character, their motives for speaking out of turn.
But Weiner? We expect him to be miserable, arrogant. He carries it like a badge of honor.
Anthony Weiner will likely lose the mayoral. The magazine covers will continue. A news network will call. And we will reward him his self proclaimed outsider status with even more attention.
And perhaps, who knows, his show will tank and he can run for comptroller instead.
