Take heed Anthony, Hebrew National is looking for a new spokes Weiner.

ProgBlogJunky

He should resign. Peelosi shuld force this pervert out. If he lied about this to escape embarassment, who to say he is lying about the age of some of the other girls he tweeted. Quit protrcting this guy. Throw him under the Weinermobile already.

Puget Sound Blathers


Gotta admit, taking over the news conference before Congressman Weiner showed up was chutzpah.

You had Congressman Weiner's staffer running down the hall yelling 'Brietbart's Here, Breitbart's Here'


Breitbart took out ACORN, he made the Obama Administration look silly/inept in not even listening to the tape and Firing Shirley Sherrod, and now he took out one of the Lions of the Left after getting said Lion to apologize.
The Left won't forget and they'll keep score. My advice to Mr Breitbart is that he best be careful...I'm just saying.

sparky

Breitbart gloated all of about 2 seconds before launching into his I Am A Victim speech. I can understand why some of you like him now.

Puget Sound Blathers

America, is this a great country or what?


Chick

Agreed, any man talking dirty on the phone or sending thick boner pics should arrested and feed to woman.

Jovita doesn't twitter

Maybe it's time for the media to tell what they know about the currant Speaker of the House?? Hmmmm?? I know our side will take a 9" Wiener over a limp Boehner.

Posted by: sparky | June 06, 2011 at 08:33 PM

I thought he launched into his "America is a victim speech", to which he made some points about a political class taken over by perverts, rubes and scumsuckers.

Breitbart not only should lawyer up, but also have a few henchmen to protect him from the lunatic fringe.

Boehner may cry too much, but I don't think he tweets.

Jovita doesn't twitter

Didn't the Enquirer promise a story about his mistress? And why has Coburn gotten a pass for his involvement in the payoff to Ensign's little dalliance and her husband? Oh that liberal media!

Totally Stupid Conservative

I stiff mah neighbors pantys all the time,so I don't see whats wrong with brightbart doing this. .

joanie

Only the Sound-bite could make Obama responsible for the corrupt feeding off Sherrod. Unbelievable.

I think Weiner should resign. I"m sorry. That kind of craziness isn't good for the left right now. It isn't good for government in the good ol' still-puritanistic US. It was dumb. Anybody that dumb and risk-oriented needs some therapy and time to pull his marriage and life together.

He's smart and he's a good Progressive but he's not good for Progressives right now. And Anthony, you were my kind of Democrat.

Pelosi is investigating. Also, no kudos for Breitbart. After the Sherrod and ACORN and all the O'Keefe fanning, the right should have sent him packing as well.

On Ring of Fire, a guest has written another book about how rightwingers and leftwingers think - brains and all that. When Sam asked why they don't care about facts or why they can't be won over with facts, the guest said: "they counter with their own facts."

Well, there are "neener neener" facts and there are contextual facts. The right deals in one and the left in the other. We are at an impasse.

To stay on topic: I think we all remember that during Clinton's affair of the blue dress, what was Gingrich doing? According to Craig: Clinton was the "naughty naughty boy" - and where is Craig today? Such hypocrisy. We can call our own on their dumbness while you guys go "neener neener."

General Mills

I bet Boehner's wiener looks like a Cheetoh.

joanie

Rachel's got it well in hand tonight with her X-Y axis of creepiness and prosecutableness.

We lose good ones: Spitzer and Weiner. What a shame.

KS

If the Dems forced Weiner to resign I would have at least an ounce of respect for them.

Posted by: joanie | June 06, 2011 at 10:11 PM

The left is all about hiding context - Media Matters and MSNBC smears are purposely out of context for the desired effect and looks for how to expand their cause. The right gets rid of their own and loses track of the political consequences. Too much narcissism going on and too many scumsuckers in political office. Too bad some of the better politicians on the left are found to be scumsucking pigs (Spitzer, Weiner). That sends a poor message.

Conversely, how often does the left throw Larry Craig, Bob Ney, Vitter and Ensign back at the GOP's and go neener-neener ? Vitter is the only one still in office.

Totally Stupid Conservative

I hear ya KS If vitter wants to wear a diper then it reflects how babies and the gop are reflected by the media.

joanie

Just finished watching Rachel. Showed a part of the U2 concert in Seattle and they featured Mark Kelly from outer space! You gotta watch it. So cool! Cosmic Log on MSNBC - Maddow

ProgBlogJunky

Lets look at somke Progressive facts on Weiner. From our own Sparky.

"Brietbart has some sort of personality disorder that allows him to keep doing this kind of scam stuff and thinking people believe him."

Posted by: sparky | May 31, 2011 at 04:49 PM


"Brietbart is back at it too. Friday he tried to sell his readers on a really bad copy/paste item that purportedly showed Rep. Anthony Wiener tweeting a picture of an erection inside boxers to a woman. He wanted everyone to ignore the different colored background on the tweet of Rep. Wiener's profile picture and heading than the rest of his message..but that doesn't stop him from threatening the Congressman that he has much more damning pictures. What a moran."

Posted by: sparky | May 29, 2011 at 09:18 AM

Nopw what was that about making up thier own facts there Joanie.

Puget Sound Blathers

"Only the Sound-bite could make Obama responsible for the corrupt feeding off Sherrod. Unbelievable."
Posted by: joanie | June 06, 2011 at 10:11 PM

Hey Joanie, if you think the Obama Administration covered itself in glory in the Sherrod matter by initially firing her without giving her a chance to defend herself then you are dumber than I thought.

Geez, what a maroon.

KS


Joanie, Sparky and the usual suspects are busy chasing their tails and becoming more practiced in defending the indefensible of their brethren Rep. Weiner and reiterate Sherrod is a loser...

Inquiring minds would like to know how they will attempt to support their above quotes as displayed by PS and PBJ. Stay tuned for today's episode of kabookie theatre, blatherwatch style.


Mama Coiler

OMG!
AFter years of being stuck with limp old Congressman Jim McCermott I see what Anthony Weiner is sporting.

Now THAT is a Representative that Represents.

HOOOO----ooooooD?

"There's is something missing, here, but if we're wrong about this, we'll say so. Stay tuned." Jun2, 2011

As Bill O'Reilly said last night at exactly 5:06pm PST, "Weiner stood up and took the beating." He had no apparent clue about the double AHN-tawn-DRAY.

Darksecretplace

MamaCoiler,

do NOT go to lemonparty.com to see Jim McDermott. It is NOT him! I repeat, NOT him.

Darksecretplace

i meant lemonparty.org
do NOT go there! it's not McDermott.

PBJ I already admitted that AW was guilty. But that doesn't change a thing about the character of Breitbart, nor my understanding of why his blogs hold great appeal for you and the others here.

That was National Enquirer..your source of record for the John Edwards story.

really, it was all over the D-Kos, Demo Underground, etc etc. Nice to see their source, eh? LMAO

Posted by: sparky | June 07, 2011 at 05:21 PM

The kabookie theater is in session - defending the indefensible. too many yeah, buts..

I thought AB handled himself well enough on Today with Matt Lauer. The thing that angered the left the most was that AW apologized to AB. No sympathy here, Sparkles - as long as the left has Soros donating profusely to the darkness of the progressive cause.

Breitbart is to the left what George Soros (the financier of the leftwing smear media) is to the right.

KS

But that doesn't change a thing about the character of Breitbart,nor my understanding of why his blogs hold great appeal for you and the others here.

Posted by: sparky | June 07, 2011 at 04:29 PM

Likewise I have no understanding why media matters, the Daily KOS and other leftwing smear sites appeal to you and others here. Are you all that shallow that the only the end result matters but not the truth ??
One would likely not exist in the media culture without the other and then combine it with the double standards of the lamesteam press and you have media FUBAR.

I'd challenge that AB has more ethics than the Soros funded smear sites but no less tenacity.

Andrew

Breitbart is a gambler - he wins some, he loses some. Just like the National Enquirer unearthing the John Edwards scandal. Every once in a while you hit the jackpot.

It's more fair to compare Soros to the Kochs. They pay for things, but they don't put their names on them.

joanie

You see, Sparky, KS just responds with his own "facts." They aren't really but as long as he believes them, they are his facts.

So, you're saying, Andrew, that Breitbart is in the game of throwing information at the wall and seeing if it sticks? He has no responsibility to verify? At least the National Enquirer investigates. I think there's a difference.

Sarah

Hang in there Mr Weiner, your indiscretions on a personal level has nothing to do with your astute political talents. This will only last while there's nothing better to talk about. If your wife (who is reported to be with child) can forgive you so can I. Don't be railroaded out of office. Make it right with your personal loved ones and continue on, having learned a lesson. You are a talented politician and you should continue your career.

Chucks

The guys wife is pregerz and he is slutting around? What a douche. The guy doesn't have the character to be a leader in our country.
There are plenty of rat bastard commie lib progressive with ethics and morals to do that job.
Weiner needs to flushed down the crapper with the rest of the turds.
A liar and a sleaze. Your standards don't require much there Sarah. Reach a bit hire woman. There are millions of better people in the democrat party. Even in New York City you can find libs with high standards for themselves.

ProgBlogJunky

Sarah, again you are wrong. If Weiner was a talented Politician, he would not have been caught in one of his lies. Since he was, he needs to go or the Progressive Party will suffer unprecendented losses next election. Even as a newly converted righty, i for one would not like to see the right take all of the houses of Government again. Give him up to the dogs like you would any other over burnt Bbq'ed weiner.

joanie

... pregerz ... slutting around? ...douche. ... rat bastard commie lib progressive ... flushed down the crapper ... turds. A liar and a sleaze. ... libs with high standards for themselves.


Posted by: Chucks | June 08, 2011 at 05:11 PM

Maybe she should shoot for a lib with the high standards with which you write. Ya think?

joanie

Randi interviewed John Nichols about the Wisconsin mess and he sounds pretty upbeat. He sees real history in the making that pushes all the frivolity of penises and revisionist history off the charts for people paying attention: mostly lefties.

However, the republicans in Wisconsin got together and are planning to run spoilers: Republicans who will register as Democrats and split the vote in primaries. That just about says it all: if you can't win fair and square, corrupt the process and steal the election. That is so Republican.

Talk about ethics, lying and sleaze. It all equals that umbrella word that describes the right: hypocrisy.

Hypocrisy: (Hi-Po-Cris-y) See "chucks" above

ProgBlogJunky

Alpha Joanie, looks like the RepubliCONs have taken a page from the Progressive playbook.

joanie

From now on, I expect you, lowly PBYJ, to address me as Alpha Joanie. If you wish to continue on this blog, you are required to use protocol. Got that, sunny?

joanie

Make that, sonny. Over and out.

KS

Let the Democrats shun Weiner and do nothing allowing Anthony to twist in the wind. Then they will have clearly demonstrated that they are the party of NO standards.

Then the GOP needs to get down to business and sweep the weinies and sausages out of the way and refute the lies from the Democratics about Obamacare and the Ryan plan or the Pawlenty plan OR another similar economic road map/plan they believe in and communicate it. Time to show some cajones and go for it.

KS

You see, Sparky, KS just responds with his own "facts." They aren't really but as long as he believes them, they are his facts.

Posted by: joanie | June 08, 2011

Do you have anything credible to back up that lame assertion ? Your tactic of baseless screed has been snuffed out once again. you're all hat and no cattle.

PBJ - Why do you refer to her as alpha
Joanie ? You are being far too charitable - has she ever been charitable to you ? If you call her anything - try Joanie bluster.

BlackRhino

Alpha Joanie,
Looks like Brightfart has others to thank for his sensation, but he won’t admit that to the lame stream media. He’ll take credit and bask in the full light of the lameness but not credit the folks which did the leg work. Except on his websites.

Congratulations on your promotion.

KS

He has no responsibility to verify? At least the National Enquirer investigates. I think there's a difference.

Posted by: joanie | June 07, 2011 at 07:54 PM

Is that all you've got ? You are out in left field - JB. The National Enquirer was not being compared with Breitbart. I think the Enquirer has more integrity than the NY Times and WaPo editorials and Time Magazine.

The original premise was; I'd challenge that AB has more ethics than the Soros funded smear sites but no less tenacity.

Jovita thinks KS needs to prove it

So KS, you made a lot of statements up there about lies and such, but I see no credible facts to back up what YOU say. Since you are requiring that of joanie, I think it only fair that you lead by example.

ProgBlogJunky

KS, she is the alpha. The leader of the pack of Progressives.

"The Alpha"

He/she is the conspiracy theorist. Believes in Global Warming.
That 9/11 was ordered by President Bush. The Iraq War was only to
finish what President Bush 41 didnt. They can make the best
righty go nuts by taking any debate and directing it 20 different
directions only to declare victory by blaming the righty that they
came full circle. They can easily add "ler" to any last name and
make it stick like glue. They are always angry and filled with hate
for anything right of center but loves all things left of it and
swear they are Independent. The leader of the blog.

joanie

The Alpha finds Rookie PB&J guilty of paranoia, dissociative amnesia, and dementia and hereby sentences him to treatment for life at a Bush-infested unknown location in Crawford, Texas, without possibility of parole. (Except to Paraguay.)
