Steny Hoyer: "This Could Happen To Anybody"

I agree now too.

I thought it was news when a Congressman tweeted a picture of his erection to a 21-year-old coed, but I've been reliably informed this is all just a misunderstanding not worth pursuing.

Carry on.

Via Thanks to StarChamberMaid.

Byron York Notices That Weiner's Non-Responsive Answers Aren't Very Convincing: But he's wrong, this is not a story.

As the distinguished gentleman Rep. Weiner says, it's time to "move on" from this "distraction" which we are "loathe" to pursue any further.

Also Noticing: Taranto, but this could have happened to anyone, and who are we to judge?

Move on, stupid bloggers. This is not a story.


Let's Give Rep. Weiner A One-Free-Boner Pass

Because God knows he'd do the same for you.


Some video of the fair-minded, honest Rep. Weiner below. I could link a thousand of these.

But he's a nice guy. Let's go soft on him. Let's give him every benefit of the doubt.

It's the right thing to do.

Like the NYT says, spinning on its own authority, this was probably just some unnamed staffer pulling a prank.

Yeah, that's it. That must be it. We've gone from hack on Friday, prank on Sunday, "staffer malfunction" from the NYT on Monday, and pretty soon we'll be entering "Please respect my family's privacy," so yes, let's just continue to pretend none of this has happened.

Welcome to 72 hours ago. Let's set the WayBack machine to Friday at 10:00 pm.
