Mediaite Liberal Hack Spins For Weiner | Main | On Coincidence And Conspiracy

Washington Post Breaks Embargo, Spinning, But Noting the 545InSeattle Time-Chime

They continue getting the timeline wrong.

They keep seeing that he tweeted about the Tivo eating his hockey game, in a tweet that comes closer to the top of the twit-feed.

But the tweet-feed is in reverse chronological order, duh. The Tivo/Hockey tweet came four minutes after the dic-pic, when Weiner had discovered he was "#Hacked!," as he claims, and when he really should have been on the phone with the police and the Congressional IT/security people about a serious electronic intrusion.

But instead of doing that, he decided to make a joke about all the malfunctions he was having with his electronics. #WhoCanISue?, he wanted to know, about Tivo eating his hockey game, rather than the more typical, "I have been hacked. Heads will roll for this. I am in contact with the FBI's director of cybercrime division as I type this."

But no, it's a joke, "touches" and "they can't stop with the Weiner jokes."

Here's a question: The Chesty Undergraduate receives a dic-pic, publicly, from a man she calls "my boyfriend," whom friends she has a "crush" on. She is on Twitter at the time.

Here's what I would expect her to write, if she weren't expecting this little package:

@repweiner LOL dude, what the hell is that? You trying to tell me something?!!

That is the reaction of someone surprised to see a dic-pic.

Instead, here is what she writes, publicly:

She writes nothing at all publicly. Just goes silent.


Because she was writing to him privately in a DM.

A few minutes later, when confronted about this by one of the conservatives who saw the dic-pic, she denies having seen it in the first place.

Really? Your boyfriend, whom you have a crush on, who just time-chimed to you, and suggested that watching Maddow and him at 545 Seattle time, saying it could be a good "friday night date, sorta," just sent you a dic-pic, publicly, when you were on Twitter...

...and you missed it?

Sometimes you just block them out.
