Overnight Open Thread (6-16-2013)

Anthony Weiner: A Grower, a Shower, and an Utterly Worthless Congressman

You might know him for his cock-tweets to young girls and his current campaign for Mayor of New York but there are other less well known aspects to his prickitude as this devastating NYT profile lays out. Here are just the opening paragraphs:

When President Obama needed every Democrat in Congress to back his health care plan in 2009, Representative Anthony D. Weiner threatened behind the scenes to torpedo the package in favor of a more sweeping measure. He backed off after he was promised a bigger share of the spotlight during the highly watched debate.

The previous year, when advocates of immigration reform invited Mr. Weiner to a round-table discussion with business leaders and more senior New York City members of Congress, he demanded to turn it into a hearing, featuring himself in a gavel-wielding role. Rebuffed, he failed to show up.

In 12 years in Congress, he sponsored and wrote only one bill that he steered to enactment: a measure pushed by a family friend who gave his campaigns tens of thousands of dollars in donations.


Quote of the Day

I don't have to listen to your phone calls to know what you're doing. If I know every single phone call you've made, I'm  able to determine every single person you talked to - I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here is what do they do with this information that they collect that does not have anything to do with al Qaeda? And we're gonna trust the President and the Vice President of the United States to do the right thing? Don't count me in on that.

  -- Joe Biden, May 2006

Well in Slow Joe's defense he may not even be aware of what the VP's office is up to these days.

"Call Me Wolfking Awesomefox"

Edward Snowden wrote this while supposedly working for the CIA under diplomatic cover:


How did a geeky douche who could write the above without a hint of irony ever get access to our national security secrets?

Meanwhile no one knows where Snowden's girlfriend is and it turns out she used to live in China and may already be in Hong Kong.


Heh:  "I have NO confidence whatsoever that some sort of gun registry doesn't already exist, in light of the NSA revelation, IRS revelation, AP wiretap revelation, etc." Don't be ridiculous. A gun registry would be in violation of federal law. Our law enforcers would never break the law.

Meanwhile in other news the NLRB is ignoring the law.

Completely Unsolicited Political Advice from Moe Lane

  • Don't appoint your gay adulterous lover to a key position in your state government.
  • Don't be in a position where you have evade wire transfer laws in order to pay off your hooker debts.
  • Don't go and get one woman pregnant while your wife is dying of cancer.
  • Don't send pictures of your penis to girls that you know only from the Internet.
  • Don't grope your staff in an election year where Jesus Christ would have difficulty winning a swing district on the Democratic ticket.
  • Don't dress up as a tiger and do. anything, really.

SWF Seeks Roommate, Must Be Into Walruses

No rent if you meet certain conditions:

Hello, I am looking for a lodger in my house. I have had a long and interesting life and have now chosen Brighton as a location for my retirement.
I have, over the last few months, been constructing a realistic walrus costume, which should fit most people of average proportions, and allow for full and easy movement in character. To take on the position as my lodger you must be prepared to wear the walrus suit for approximately two hours each day (in practice, this is not two hours every day - I merely state it here so you are able to have a clear idea of the workload). Whilst in the walrus costume you must be a walrus - there must be no speaking in a human voice, and any communication must entail making utterances in the voice of a walrus - I believe there are recordings available on the web - to me, the voice is the most natural thing I have ever heard.


The Modern Police State: Sweden Proposes 'Total' Ban on Bestiality

Sweden on Thursday proposed legislation that would completely outlaw bestiality, tightening current rules that only prohibit sex with animals that causes mental or physical harm.

...Until now, bestiality was illegal in Sweden only if it could be proven that the animal had been subjected to suffering.

Starting on January 1st, 2014, however, any sexual act with an animal will be punishable by a fine, a maximum prison sentence of two years, or both, even if the animal shows no sign of injury or suffering or is a very sexy walrus.
