Weiner Goes Down Swinging;
Flips Bird to Reporter Leaving
Concession Speech

PJMedia, by Ed Driscoll

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 9/11/2013 7:35:49 AM

“Sadly, I was an imperfect messenger,” Anthony Weiner (D-NY) noted tonight in his long-awaited concession speech, perhaps the only honest thing he has ever said:Anthony Weiner conceded defeat in the race for New York City mayor Tuesday night.As poll results came in showing the former congressman in distant fifth place, Weiner took to the stage at Connolly’s Pub in Midtown and put an end to a once-promising campaign. “Now, sadly, we did not win this time,” he said. “But I could not be more proud of the campaign we ran.” “

Weiner is good friends with the Clintons and Jon Stewart. What does that tell you about them and Democrats? Will someone ask the Weiner´s how they are going to pay for that million dollar apartment they live in now that he has gone down. He brought down the entire Party.

These two election losses could be sign that even Dems have reached the end of their incredibly long morality rope. Could be tectonic shift for 2014 and 2016, with decent, pro-growth Repubs having better than average chances of winning.

Next up is the NYC mayoral election, with a radical leftist, former ACORN executive, DeBlasio, running a tax the rich, bash the police, love the illegals campaign. Republican candidate is a former senior aide to Rudy Guiliani, Joe Lhota, who has gotten zero media coverage during GOP primary. Go, Joe!! NYC needs a normal mayor far more than it realizes.

Great Ed Driscoll article. (I love the man´s 40´s style masthead too!) The man gets the details. Huma Muslima was nowhere to be found, was not referred to in the concession speech nor his family, and Miss Sydney Leathers crashed the party. You cannot make this stuff up...

I rarely post here, but when Carlos Danger entered the race I predicted he had little chance, but he was being urged to do so by Huma to benefit Hillary--the $4 million in his use-it-or-lose-it campaign war chest plus whatever he´d raise was directed to Hillary´s backers, researchers and general dogsbodies to keep them loyal till the 2016 run kicks in. Now that it is spent, Huma will kick Weiner out of their friend-of-Hillary subsidized pad, he´ll go home to live with Mom, and Huma will be working officially with Hillary. The only question will be if Weiner will have any kind of political future (he may wind up on some commission with a Mayor DeBlasio--it´s NY) or pull a Donald Manes.

How appropriate that in his last public appearance, he used a symbol that will always be associated both with his name and legacy.

Cheer up tiny one, you can always go back to being Carlos Danger. Maybe a made-for-TV movie or your own sitcom awaits.

Weiner is a despicable little man with a perversion that will only get worse. It is a slippery slope he is going down. Unfortunately for him, he´ll have to finance it himself from now on instead of having the taxpayer pick up the tab for his sexual perversion.

With all the people in New York to draw from, why aren´t the candidates for public office of a better quality?
I have only visited NYC twice, but it seems that there are just a tremendous number of decent, smart people there, any of whom would be a better candidate than this.... what should we call him.... jackass, fool, POS, pervert, embarrassment?
Come on, New York!

Talk about a sore loser. He´s forgotten the old adage, never flip off someone who buys ink by the barrel.

I´m thinking if he moved to San Francisco, he would be a shoo-in for at least getting elected to a House seat.

Weiner is out of publick orifice... sure...
he couldn´t cut the mustard... he couldn´t ketchup... but only for now...

As the loser he is, maybe he´ll follow good ol´ Bob Dole and make product endorsements...
there´s always Viagra... Cialis... Trojan...
and don´t forget K-9 Jelly!

He could make a music video go viral on YouTube... (or... EwwwwwTube) by Twerking
and lip-syncing to "Whip It" by DEVO...

He could always go two-sies with Monica Lewinsky and jointly endorse America´s
most famous hard licker...

He could perform a mu-sick duet with Monica, who, after all, once had the Number One Thong
in America...

Weiner has a short fuse... it´s obvious...
But his earnings potential and marketable future is through the roof...

Just picture him as the Spokes-Weiner for "Between The Buns" cafe in Phoenix, AZ...

And for his next publick orifice?
Once Huma enters the White Hutt living quarters with partner Hill-err-ee-ass Herself
you can expect Weiner to join them there for at least some comic relief...
It´s not over yet... and ol´ Billyboobboob Klintoon won´t enjoy sharing the slimelight.

Folks, Weiner won this race. His objective from the first was to keep control of his campaign funds. If he hadn´t run for something this year he would have been declared retired and he would have lost control of his $5 million nest egg. This way he´s still an active politican. And as an active politican he can use some of his left over funds as donations to other active politicians. And THEY will then owe him a favor. Say hello to the next assistant, deputy, vice-chairman of the upper New York outer Great Lakes advisory board.

Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
