Up Next, They Plan to Set off Tornado Warning Sirens in Joplin

Assholes:

 

The state director of the conservative group Americans for Prosperity offered no apologies today for papering homes in Detroit’s Delray district Monday with fake eviction notices.

 

Bearing the words “Eviction Notice” in large type, the bogus notices told homeowners their properties could be taken by the Michigan Department of Transportation to make way for the New International Trade Crossing bridge project. The NITC is the subject of debate in Lansing, and Americans for Prosperity is lobbying heavily against it.

“It was meant to startle people,” Scott Hagerstrom, the group’s state director, said today. “We really wanted people to take notice. This is the time that their opinions need to be heard. We wanted people to read it.”

The fake eviction notices sparked outrage in Southwest Detroit, with State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who represents the area in Lansing, complaining that the tactic has created chaos among the district’s residents.

 

Seriously, is there any other place in the country except for maybe Vegas, Cleveland, Maricopa County and parts of Florida where it would be a worse idea to put up fake eviction notices than Detroit? What the hell is wrong with these people?

Who cares about the sex 'content' of Weinergate?

It's the lying and the week of avoidance tactics, it's the psycho-political exhibition that matter.

Understanding Weinergate

How social media felled a rising star, and how his Jewishness was involved

Anthony Weiner at his press conference yesterday.

Anthony Weiner at his press conference yesterday.

Last October, sportswriter Bill Simmons tweetedthe following message: “Moss Vikings.” Having not meant to send this to the world—having, rather, meant to send it as a private “direct message” to just one person—he deleted that tweet, and then, realizing that at least one of his literally more than one million followers may have seen it, he tweeted a mea culpa: “Sorry that last tweet was supposed to be a DM [direct message]. Rumors swirling about a Pats-Minny trade for Randy Moss.” Everybody quickly began reporting on what would have made for the blockbuster trade of the football season. The following day, the New England Patriots traded Moss to the Minnesota Vikings.

For those of who remembered this story, it was not shocking at all when Rep. Anthony Weiner, Democrat from New York and heretofore one of the brightest rising Jewish political stars, yesterday admitted that racy photos seemingly from him, which appeared on his Twitter account, all stemmed from a single instance in which he had, yes, meant to send a direct message to one follower and had instead tweeted the picture to the world. Which meant he has been lying for the past several days in saying vague things about his account having been “hacked.” He added that he had had similar exchanges with roughly six women, mostly before he was married (to Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin, who is, notably to some in the Jewish community, a Muslim woman), some after.

Interesting (and very witty) insights from Hitchens on Weinergate and the John Edwards affair:

 

Anatomy of a Scandal

How Anthony Weiner and John Edwards lost control of their private parts.

 

In one of the routines from his heyday, Richard Pryor would enact the anguish experienced by a man who cannot get his male organ to rise. In this redefinition of the whole concept of standup, he ended by practically seizing the torpid member by the throat, howling plaintively, and demanding to know, "Whose dick is this?"

Comes now Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., who might be described as a sitting member. His sad story is simply told and requires an answer to the same question. A 21-year-old female student, who follows the congressman's doings on Twitter, received an unsolicited photograph from that same account. It showed the genital area of a male, lightly draped in hybrid boxer briefs and apparently taken by the owner of the pudenda himself. Weiner denied all knowledge, suggesting that he was the victim of a hoax or prank. But he modestly declined to say whether he had any … connection to the subject matter. Indeed, since there are only two possible answers to the question, his nondenials had the doubtless unintended effect of a confirmation. "Stuff gets manipulated," as he told Rachel Maddow. "Maybe it started out as being a photograph of mine" that had been "taken out of context." With CNN's Wolf Blitzer he elaborated by saying, "I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me." Continuing with his ill-advised choice of metaphor, he added, "I don't know what things have been manipulated." When Luke Russert inquired whether Weiner could suggest another possessor of the manipulated organ, he rather lamely replied that he "couldn't say with certitude" that it was somebody else's.

Pausing only to pity the poor penis, so shabbily half-disowned (does Weiner think it has no feelings at all; that it must conclude that its owner's right hand does not know what his left hand is doing?), we move to the week's other Democratic scandal. Former senator and potential presidential nominee John Edwards now admits that he financed the concealment of his mistress and his then-unborn child with generous funds given by a credulous centenarian named Rachel "Bunny" Mellon. But he denies that this was an improper diversion of money given to his campaign. As the New York Times summarized matters: "The Edwards defense is that the money was used not for political reasons but for personal reasons: he wanted to conceal the affair from his wife."

About Palin, a polite and erudite professor  of history from Suffolk College near Boston was interviewed yesterday on NPR.  It's worth listening to.  With grudging politeness, the prof seems to support the thrust of Palin’s assertions--that bells were rung and that, indeed, Revere intended to warn the British regulars and the less-happily-British colonists that the soldiers were indeed slyly intending to move by night, thereby to deprive the colonists of their arms.

Good points, Adriana.  This is very disappointing.  As someone said yesterday, he used to be one of the good guys, and now he's just a guy.  That's a long way to fall.
Comment by Adriana on June 6, 2011 at 9:56pm
I'm really disappointed in Anthony Weiner, not because of the wiener pics per se, but because he was (is) a true champion of the right causes,  and now a wonderful opportunity to see him grow (no pun intended) has been lost. I'm glad he fessed up, like a man, and that he is not resigning. I'll still vote for him, because I like his political ideas, but it sure is a childish character flaw to exchange pics of your happy boner when you're in public office. At least he didn't do anything illegal and wasn't hypocritical.
