Did a guy from the Howard Stern show just call this guy a pervert? For a little Facebook jerking off?
Still can't decide if I feel bad for Weiner or not. I don't think I've ever seen a politician humiliated this bad but I keep going back to how dumb he was. Normal affairs would have been a lot safer.

Howard Stern's response here:
Apparently Benjy was not the one who called him a pervert but the rest of it shocked Howard. Basically Benji is an idiot.
While this bullshit was going on, Nancy Pelosi was trying to have a serious press conference about creating jobs, but hey FUCK THAT I want to about this guy's dick some more!
(and yes, the first question Pelosi was asked was not about the job creation plan, but about Weiner)
how many jobs bills has the 112th congress voted on so far? not even passed, but simply voted on? oh, zero? okay
Lets just say the Democrats lost more jobs.
I dunno how many times you can show this graph without conservatives getting it but here goes again:
Say it ain't so... Did he do something actually horrible? Like sexually harass people? Or rape them? Or make them feel uncomfortable at work because of sex? If not, I don't care.
He initially didn't do anything horrible, but then he lied to the public. He violated our trust.
"It's not that what he did had any bearing whatsoever, it's that he LIED about it!"
I'm not going to pretend I know about behind the scenes politics, but why should he resign? What possible repercussions to himself and the Democratic party as a whole could come about if he stayed? Do his constituents care enough that they'd swing Republican? Would fallout seriously carry over to Democratic candidates in other elections? Assuming the last two are true, would resigning really erase that stain and repair the damage?
You know, because the whole thing reeks of the status quo wanting to find any excuse to excise an outspoken politician calling out all the bullshit.
Right FLABIO, because the same thing wouldn't have happened to a Republican caught in a similar pickle. (pun intended)
Possibly because a good chunk of the Republican platform is their fascist espousing of "family values"? It's the hypocrisy that people care about. Nobody but hateful reactionaries truly gives a fuck where politicians put their Weiner, just like nobody would care if Rush had only been caught with illegal painkiller instead of being caught AFTER advocated mandatory life sentences for drug users.
This is also not taking into account that it's fellow Republicans who tear apart their own kind when caught in a sex scandal. What the fuck is this "it's only fair that it happen to you too" garbage? Don't lump me into the goings on of your shrieking party of demagogues.
and jesus christ, "FLABIO?" You couldn't even make the stretch to FLABBY-O? Glenn Beck is a better rodeo clown than you.
Yeah Cena, like all the repercussions that one of my senators (Vitter) got for actually breaking the l... err... "sinning."
LOL you intended to use a pickle pun! god I had you all wrong. come here you
He was actually fairly unpopular with a lot of party machine Democrats who he called out for cow towing to corporations and Republicans, and any egotistical politician was certainly not happy with his ability to steal the spotlight.
Note how differently the mainstream Democrats reacted to Charlie Rangel's actual scandals.
