Thought came to mind when I caught this on Instapundit: “JIM TREACHER: Weiner Tip #1: If you want to prevent a topic from becoming a distraction, call the person asking you about it a jackass.” I mean, just like Sheen, he’s melting down and is all over the media. Seems the Democrat has a similar saturation strategy.
Oh, and props to Anderson Cooper who does seem to be trying to be fair, tweeting this morning: “For those saying we shouldn’t cover the Weiner story, would u feel same way if this had happened to a conservative republican? Just asking?” (H/t Washington Examiner.)
UPDATE: Seems I’m not the first to come up with this notion. In Politico, Ben Smith writes:
“Watching Anthony Weiner’s twitter and press blitz is like watching a Charlie Sheen meltdown. It’s amusing, uncomfortable, and not necessary,” a Democratic leadership aide (not from Pelosi’s office) told me just now. “If Weiner really wants to get beyond this, he’ll shut up and let Democrats get back to their Medicare message.”
