Am I The Only One Who Anthony Weiner Didn't Dick-Dial?

I'm beginning to think there's something wrong with me.

Am I not worthy? What, I don't rate? (Now that I think about it: Hat tip to Dom Irera. That's his joke.)

More pictures of Weiner. Oh my dear sweet raging schadenboner.

Now he's taking semi-nude and nude pictures of himself at the Congressional gym.

I'm linking the full-nude holding-his-package pic. It's actually pretty safe for work. You can also see it at Weasel Zippers if you'd prefer to give them the traffic.

But it's hard to pick a favorite. Oh wait, no it's not.

TMZ has confirmed the pics were sent online to at least one woman.

I'm going to make a philosophical point here. Please do not mistake this for "going soft" on Weiner. (Believe me, I'm not gettin' soft at all, IYKWIMAITYD.)

Think about where Anthony Weiner was 15 days ago. Puffed-up bantam of a partisan venom-spitter -- a liberal cockatrice -- and a big fightin' hero on MSNBC and Daily Kos and partisan hate-rallies (like the Wisconsin rally he was scheduled to attend). Generally considered to be the prime contender for the next mayor of New York City.

And after getting serious executive experience... who knows what next.

Think about where he is now.

Now think about what caused this.

No, don't say "immoral behavior" or "reckless sexual compulsiveness" or "hubris" or the "entitlement of the putative elite" or "the need of high-functioning, modern men to take the edge off."

Yes, those caused this, but they weren't the immediate cause of this. He was doing that stuff for years without any problems arising from it.

No, what caused all this was.... a typo.

The Typo From Hell. Possibly the worst typo in the history of politics.

Not saying he doesn't deserve it -- he does -- but consider that but for a single clumsy move by an errant left forefinger, none of this happens.

The smallest error of a fingertip, and a man is wholly undone.

Just a little mindblowing.

I can't even comprehend how deeply that twitch of a fingertip is burned into his brain at this point. How he has revisited and revisited a single errant keystroke.

Thanks to George Orwell.
