Some People Never Learn!

By now, my great and glorious readers, you have
no doubt heard of the latest sexcapade of former
U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (SO aptly named!)
who is now a candidate for the office of New York's
Mayor. And it's the same activity which caused
his first scandal, causing him to relinquish his
seat in Congress! Indeed, it seems that the boy
just can't keep it in his pants and off the 'net!

The New York Times ran a reproachful editorial
on July 24 chastising the veteran Democrat for his
repeated disgusting behavior, even urging him
to quit the mayoral race in the Big Apple.
The Times Editorial Board wrote:
"At some point, the full story of Anthony Weiner
and his sexual relationships and texting habits
will finally be told ... in the meantime, the
serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his
marital troubles and personal compulsions
out of the public eye, away from cameras,
off the Web and out of the race for mayor
of New York City." Sound advice. Your
skeptical Peasant doubts, however, that the
former Congressman will heed it.

The strong words from the Times came a day
after Weiner had, once again, publicly
admitted to his sexual misadventure. If you
are a liberal politician and you get into a nasty
enough scandal, and the ever-left Times tells
you to hang it up, then you know you're
through! "A Web site called The Dirty had
another woman's story, another round of sex
texts, and another picture of Mr. Weiner's
penis," the Times continued. "The marital
trauma that Mr. Weiner and his wife,
Huma Abedin, had said was behind them was
not as far behind as we thought." Well, not
when the serial perv indulges in a new round
of sexual adventurism. Continuing with the
editorial scolding, the Times stated "Mr.
Weiner and Ms. Abedin have been saying that
his sexual behavior is not the public's business.
Well, it isn't, until they make it our business by
plunging into a political campaign ... To those
who know his arrogance and have grown tired
of the tawdry saga he has dragged the city into,
this is not surprising." OWWW!

And how about Mrs. Weiner, a Hillary Clinton-
esque figure to be sure! She, like the former First
Lady, seems willing to suffer whatever indignities
that her husband puts her through with his tawdry
dalliances just to steer him to political power (and
herself as well). If she has designs on public office
as Hillary has it remains to be seen, but time will
certainly tell. Like the Clintons, they are a truly
gruesome twosome!

The other major daily newspapers in New York
City have joined the Times in calling for Weiner
to get out of the mayoral race. But wouldn't you
know, Weiner has already said he will stay in the
race. Perhaps, though, something will prevail upon
him to see reason and exit the fray after all. We
can only hope. In the meantime, we are witnessing
another case of a politician all caught up in him-
self, thinking he is invincible where all from
criticism to scandal are concerned. Pride and hubris
always come before a fall; this is such a simple
lesson to learn, except for those who are long on
ego and arrogance while being short on smarts
and sense.
