Who Will Rid Me of This Troublesome Weiner? Hillary, Fearing a Storyline Mentioning Her Own Tammy Wynette Act, Sets the Democratic Dogs to Weiner & Huma

It would take a lot to make me sympathetic to Anthony Weiner. As a German thief said to Hans Gruber, it might even take a miracle.

You asked for a miracle? I give you the H. R. C.

Schiessen Sie den Fenstern.
Shoot. The Glassss.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.

“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.

Ho ho ho, now I have a vast rightwing conspiracy. But I'll return to this later.

Remember two things:

Until this second wave of Weinermania broke, it had been said -- for years -- that Bill and Hillary Clinton consider Huma Abedin to be like a second daughter.

Remember that as you read the following. She was a Second Daughter. Now she's a threat that must be destroyed.

And also remember the Democratic Party is not a party, it is The Collective, and The Collective has a rigid hierarchy, as do colonies of insects and other meaner, lesser creatures and vermin. The Collective protects all member-insects of The Collective, until that member-insect becomes a threat to The Collective, at which point it is repeatedly stung until it is dead or driven away from the hive.

So let's check in with Second Daughter Huma:


“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”

Her actions were different because she got higher on the Marry Your Mealticket ladder of success?

No, her actions were the same, if not worse -- well, they were worse, period, but I'll get to that. No, this is explicitly a Status Not Action argument -- Hillary's actions are different because she is Higher Status.

The Collective works like this. This is not a controversial statement within The Collective.


“Hillary didn’t know Huma would do this whole stand-by-your-man routine, and that’s one of the reasons the Clintons are distancing themselves from all this nonsense,’’ the source said.

Democrats have gotten rather paranoid about Huma's alleged attempt to chain herself to the good ship Hillary:


For instance, Abedin, with her husband at her side, declared last week, “Our marriage, like many others, has had its ups and its downs.’’

“Who didn’t think Huma was referring to the Clintons when she said that?’’ asked another prominent Democrat.

No dummy, I don't, not really, and even if it was intended it is two things:

Subtle as a whisper and true as daylight.

And there's more of this; Allah's quotes of the day is essentially a digest of enormous explosions going off on the roof under the feet of Huma and Weiner. You need some bodies for the getaway, you know.

Anthony Weiner has lost his mind.

At least, that’s the conclusion most Democrats have come to…

The liberal Christian Science Monitor:

What remains intriguing in this mess of indecency and indiscretion is whether the stink rubs off on his wife, Huma Abedin, who before doing her version of Tammy Wynette last week was one of the most respected and influential operatives in Democratic politics. Now folks are questioning her morals and motivations.

Ah, Tammy Wynette again. How she doth keep popping up. How fore in the minds of liberals she is.

I wonder why that should be. Politico:

The feelings about Weiner in Clinton-land are unequivocal, according to someone close to the couple: “Everyone’s done with him.” Multiple sources familiar with the Clintons’ thinking said they would be delighted for him to disappear from public consumption.

Clinton insiders and allies insist they don’t believe Abedin has become a liability for the former secretary of state, who is widely known to be considering a 2016 presidential bid....

“There’s anger with Anthony, but that anger is because we love and admire Huma,” said Democratic strategist and longtime Bill Clinton adviser Paul Begala.

I could feel the love when Democrats dismissed her as a do-nothing parvenue not fit to be mentioned in the same sentence as Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“I respect Huma’s decision and admire it to stick it out and make the marriage work and such. But still, you can’t deny that people who love and admire her will be … furious with what he has put her through…

“It’s not a problem now,” said one senior Democrat. “But every day that this goes on brings increasing risk for the Clintons.”

And that's the name of the game, isn't it? This is a troublesome Second Daughter now and she must be purged. A very term abortion, if you will.

Taranto has himself a proper gloat at the claim that Hillary's Tammy Wynette act is nothing at all like Huma's Tammy Wynette act.

Indeed that's true in two different ways:

1, Bill Clinton did much, much more than Anthony Weiner did,


2, Hillary Clinton lied to protect Bill Clinton (or at least told falsehoods), whereas Huma Abedin's defense was... well, let's be charitable and say "mostly true." She didn't claim a vast rightwing conspiracy, at least. She did fudge on when Weiner quit sexting (though who knows when she actually knew as as far as that), but that's nothing compared to Hillary Rodham Clinton's absurdly false denials.

Let's check out what Hillary said in 1998:

The great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president."

Quite different from what Huma said. While Huma asked for forgiveness and indulgence, Hillary asked for an investigation into her husband's truthful accusers.

Taranto trips through history, noting that Sally Quinn, for example (who?), finds Huma now a setback for feminism, but was much more indulgent of the compromises Hillary Rodham Clinton was forced to make.

He quotes Tina Brown, again making the real concern quite evident:

The trouble with Carlos [Danger, Weiner's nom de net] and his ilk is they're not just a danger to themselves, but a danger to everyone else. One look at the humiliated face of the elegant Huma Abedin, spear-carrier for Hillary Clinton's women's-empowerment message, will tell you that.

Taranto does note there is one major difference between Weiner/Abedin and Clinton/Rodham:

So Hillary is admired and Huma maligned because Hillary married better. Isn't feminism wonderful?

Now I have no idea why suddenly Monica Lewinsky's decades-old Sexy Recorded Messages to The Big He have now leaked, but I will note the tapes portray Ms. Lewinsky as seductive and sexually forward -- why, it's hardly any wonder poor Bill was unable to resist her charms.

Unlike that dastardly Carlos Danger, who did this all himself. The Monster.

More: Here.

I'm starting to become pro-weiner. yes he screwed up a bunch. That's no reason for the entire media to start treating him like a Republican.

Oh, and Bill and Hillary's devoted Valkyrie Maureen Dowd joins the hunt.
