Evening Open Thread

Buzzfeed identifies Weiner's accuser, who wanted to remain anonymous.

Swiped from Hot Air, which reminds readers of Kristen Powers' 2011 assessment of former-brief-boyfriend Weiner as "sociopathic." He's definitely compulsive, given to junkie-like cravings. It's pretty astonishing that after being forced to resign from Congress for sending out pictures of his penis to a few too many women, he was sending out pictures of his penis again almost immediately after.

I think that's like junkie behavior, right? What does a junkie do after his intoxication causes him to do something horrible that causes him a catastrophe? Well, he returns to the crack pipe, even harder.

Heather MacDonald deems Obama's Big Huge Race Speech empty of everything except cowardice.

Bill O'Reilly sounded some similar notes last night, accusing the media and black leadership of doing everything possible to avoid the black community's actual problems in order to focus on the one convenient scapegoat, White Oppressors.

Allen West discussed it too.

Greg Gutfeld earlier today had a good term for that sort of talk: "Hatefacts." What you're saying is a fact, but it's a Hate Fact, because the dominant cultural gatekeepers don't want to hear it and will call it "hate" to get you to shut up about your impolitic truth-telling.

Okay, today actually was sort of exhausting. I don't know why -- it would seem like it was all easy content, just dick-jokes and "Here's what's on TV," but for some reason it was pretty tiring.

Rick Tempest out.*

Bonus! @rdbrewer4 sends this under the slugline Husband Records Wife's Temper Tantrum, Files for Divorce. I haven't watched it yet, but it must be good.

* For those of you who were wondering -- now do you get why I called myself Rick Tempest? I just thought it was a fun, ridiculous, obviously made-up name, something you'd see in a bad detective novel or, well, an Anthony Weiner Jerk Circle.

I didn't know I'd get topped by Anthony Weiner's "Carlos Danger," though. Or "Sydney Leathers."
