Anthony Weiner

Kristin Chenowith performs “Popular” as advice to Anthony ‘Carlos Danger’ Weiner

A tribute version of the Broadway musical Wicked’s “Popular Song.” Lyrics include:

“You will be popular, the right kind of popular”

“I’ll teach you to zip your fly / You won’t be that guy with a camera down his pants.”

Stay classy, New York City

My favorite Twitter politician, Anthony Weiner, is back, and considering a run for mayor of New York City. Former US congressman Weiner used Twitter to get inappropriately close to new digital, female friends. It’s unclear to me whether he loved himself or his fans too much. As another great politican would say, you be the decider.

Remember the video with super-hot Jane Lynch and Bill Maher reading the Weiner testimony?!

Google image results tell more than you need to know

It’s remarkable how a Google image search for “anthony weiner twitter” produces such a rich set of visuals that tells more than enough: vanity, tears, arrogance, underpants, wife, user-generated content, hairless muscular chest, high school photo, the american flag. Of course he’s now finally heading for therapy and its inevitable political outcome, rehab. Godspeed, Mr Weiner, and thank you and Google for making our world more louche and understandable.

US Representative Weiner’s Twitter photo

Since I regularly watch Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, maybe I thought everyone knew about US Rep Weiner’s underwear shot that was tweeted from his account to a young woman who is not his wife. Well, the hubb hadn’t heard yet.

Weiner denies sending the Tweet, but cannot say with certainty if that is his underwear and member, or not. By sexting standards, this is pretty vanilla. While seemingly large and suggestive, his wiener is concealed, draped, and less explicit than most ads for men’s undies.

Do you agree with my mom that Rep Weiner’s career is “over”?
