BREITBART HACKS PRESS CONFERENCE
Pic Sent To Comely Coed Was A... Joke
| Main | So, is the Twittering Weiner vulnerable in 2012? »

New Thread: "WERE YOU FULLY ERECT, CONGRESSMAN?"

I'd say that was a first for a press conference, wouldn't you? Audio here; I'm told that was a member of Howard Stern's Wack Pack.

So, in "coming clean," he lied a whole bunch of times, and continued to evade.

IT CONTINUES.

ABCNews Reveals the Latest Woman, Or Is She Even The Latest? One of May's two models (that we know about).

Breitbart #Hacks! press conference.

Chris Matthews: "He finally told the truth." He did? We're just accepting that? Again?

We're just believing him again, huh?


Let's See... All of the girls were "over 21" except for the Comely Coed?

And that was a... joke?

He sent her the same pic as a joke that he sends for cybersex?

That's odd.

I would have sent the cat pic, myself. Not the erection pic. But that's just me.

Goldberg's Reaction: Eh, giving a little too much benefit of the doubt.

Watching the press conference was extremely uncomfortable at the outset. He’s clearly humiliated and apologetic to his wife. I think his critics should acknowledge that much (though judging from the Twitter reactions, many do not).

It was also good for him to apologize to Andrew Breitbart and “anyone else he misled.”

But that’s not what he did wrong to Andrew Breitbart and others. He encouraged people to make Breitbart et al into the villains in this story. The sin there is not misleading but a kind of bearing false witness, a variant of slander.

The tide turned against him when he was asked whether he knew if all the recipients of his communications were of legal age. I suspect that tide will not recede imminently.

When anyone gets caught and is faced with the stern glare of group disapproval, he cries. It's a natural human reaction. It might even be hardwired as some kind of submission/mercy reflex signal.

That doesn't mean he's sorry. It means he's sorry he got caught and has to go through this ordeal.

And the fact is, I can't say in that situation I'd be crying more for the people I'd hurt than myself. I strongly suspect I'd be mostly crying for myself. Not proud of that, but I make a point of being honest, except when it's in my tangible interest to not be.

So I don't rush to buy this "he's sorry" crap. Why? Because he squirted a few?

As for the girl's ages-- Good Lord, if the media goes to sleep on this one...


Headline: Weiner Didn't Communicate With Underage Girls... To the Best of His Knowledge. Well, that's just wonderful.

Color me relieved.


Sit down, sit down. Look at these pictures.
What's this a picture of?
Do you know how old the girl was you sent this to?
"To the best of your knowledge" she was over 21?
To the best of your knowledge?
Yes, you can go now.
But I have to warn you, there may be other men,
men outside, who have more questions for you.
