Okay, how many people just had a heart attack?

Relax, I'm fuckin' with you. How many times do I have to tell you he did it? If you're still doubting that, that's on you.

The headline is accurate. It's also deeply misleading.

Weiner’s Office Calls The Police After CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer Asks For An Interview


So CBS 2 political reporter Marcia Kramer decided to go to his office on Capitol Hill to try to get you some answers.

You’ll never believe what happened.

Kramer tried to get an interview with the six-term New York Democrat and as a result had the cops called on her.

Kramer walked in to Weiner’s office, announced herself as being from CBS 2 in New York City and said she’d like to see the congressman. Those few words created quite the stir. Doors slammed and people pretended she wasn’t there.

Finally, brave press secretary David Arnold arrived. The following is the exchange Kramer had with him:

Kramer: “All I want is for him to say something to his constituents, the people who have to vote for him.”

Arnold: “I don’t think you can say he hasn’t said anything to his constituents. He spoke for nine hours yesterday.

Kramer: “But not to anyone in New York. You know, this is the sort of in-the-bunker in the capitol, not to anyone in New York.”

After Kramer left Weiner’s office, his staff called the Capitol Police.

Ohhhhhh... So this pitiful strutting bantam of a semi-man does know the number of the Capitol Police....?

Gee, I thought he didn't have it.

Why didn't he just hire a "private security firm" to take care of the desperado Marcia Kramer of CBSTV?

And I thought... he was avoiding calling the police in order to spare the hackers the glare of the media spotlight?

And yet he just put poor Marcia Kramer in that glare.

I don't know... this is awfully confusing...

OH! Do note, there's video at that link.

Thanks for Patrick, who asked "Can't you embed the vid?" And I said no, no I can't. Then I see at Hot Air that Allah has embedded it. So I realize, Gee, maybe I should have clicked those buttons on the thing, huh?

Yeah. I'm like that.

I think people are freaking out because he's so obviously guilty that people are starting to think, "No one can be this guilty. Even Charles Manson is less guilty than this. I'm being set up. This is some big master scheme to draw us all in."

Relax. He's not that smart, either.

He looks guilty because he's guilty.

He acts guilty because he's guilty.

He talks guilty because he's guilty.

He doesn't call the cops on the hackers because he's guilty.

He calls the cops on reporters because he's guilty.

He doesn't deny the picture is his because he's guilty.

This is not complicated. This is not Twin Peaks.

Oh, And Here's Something: Bret Baier noted NBCNews embargoed the whole story, despite their own little-kid boy reporter Luke Russert making Weiner look bad, and despite their own Chris Cilizza saying in TheFix that Weiner had the "worst week in Washington." But apparently NBC Nightly News didn't think it was a story.

They did think that Chris Christie's helicopter nontroversy was a story, though.

Giggle. The Make Believe Media thinks it's 1997 again, I guess.

And, Surprise! Look at who joined the NBC Team!

Yeah, that's not too obvious.

And Oh! George Gooding awoke from his eternal blog slumber to debunk the already pretty well debunked "Yfrog hack" silliness that gripped the left these last 24 hours. But do read.

I skipped that because, see, at this point I am beyond technical details.

He's guilty. Period.

But yeah, for Lee Stranahan and "Cannonfire" and even ABC News, which, shockingly enough, republished a bogus claim they found on a left-wing blog: Do see George's post.

The Left Turns? Skip down to the end of Allah's post to read TNR calling Weiner skeezy.

JackStraw and JeffB. say they take the blowtorch to him.

It's time: It is time.

Ehhh... Having read that Chait piece, I think it's off the mark.

Presumably he was single at that point, yes? So he's allowed to pick up on pretty young things. We do not demand that Congressmen live as monks. I guess he had a kind of sleazy charm and young girls responded. Eh. It's not like anyone was forced to do anything they didn't want to.

In reality, every single pick-up/hook-up looks sleazy, and is sleazy, really, except to the people involved. And oftentimes, to them too.

So I'm in the odd position of having to tell someone on the left to chill out on the moral scolding of a Democratic Congressmen. Yes, the anecdote report is... ugghhh... but that's what these things tend to be. That's why we euphemize them with some kind of telephone metaphor. Few people say, "I had sex with a near-stranger."

That said, it does add to our picture of Weiner as a -- I can't believe I have to write this again -- ahem, ladies' man, and he might have found that marriage interfered unduly with his hobbies.

You know what else adds to our picture? The fact that someone accused, accurately, of sending a dic-pic to a 21 year old student not his wife, is making dick-jokes about it in interviews.

And even more dick jokes, to supporters and reporters.

Yes, that is the right Pantomime for someone supposedly criminally violated.
