“How long,” Michelle Malkin asks,”before Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner conducts his next meltdown press conference flanked by two adult-movie ‘goddesses’ a la Charlie Sheen? Like the delusional bad-boy actor, Weiner actually thinks his self-destructive act is ‘winning‘, too.”
And why boast (falsely as it turns out) that he has more Twitter followers than Paul Ryan? It’s almost as if his whole game now is about getting media exposure (well, not quite).
I had dinner last night with a friend who routinely votes Democrat and even he had trouble believing his fellow partisan from the Empire State.
Mr. Weiner is not acting like he has nothing to hide. Indeed, it’s almost as he believes making a spectacle of himself will keep people’s eyes riveted on the locked door to the closet where he keeps his secrets. If they keep looking at that door, he wants to believe, they won’t want to know what inside because it’s locked, you see. You know, like that scene in Star Wars where C-3PO and R2-D2 hide from the stormtroopers in Mos Eisley.
If he were indeed innocent of the charges leveled against him, he would:
- Say in plain and simple terms that he didn’t send the tweet in question
- Call for an investigation to see who had hacked his Twitter account
- Remain silent until said investigation was complete.
