Anthony Weiner: A hard man to slap down

See also

(Satire): Just a couple of years ago, Anthony Weiner was an up-and-coming member of Congress who was admired by many people for his blunt, in-your-face criticisms of conservatives in Congress.

Then in June of 2011, even his stiffest supporters were disappointed when it was revealed that the married Mr. Weiner sent sexually explicit pictures of his private parts to several women.

After a hard battle, Weiner realized that he blew his load. Shortly thereafter Weiner softened and resigned from Congress.

Barely 2 years later, when Weiner plunged head first back into politics as a candidate for New York City Mayor, he indicated that his crude sexual behavior was a thing of the past that would not be repeated.

It looked for a while like Anthony Weiner had surged ahead by beating off most of his opponents when polls showed him as the front runner in the race.

Unfortunately Weiner’s old behavior has reared its ugly head once again. It now appears that he secretly continued sending sexually explicit messages to several women, using the name Carlos Danger more than a year after he resigned from Congress.

Weiner's support has shriveled so much that half of all New Yorkers want Weiner to pull out.

Weiner's head, who was his campaign manager recently resigned saying its time for Weiner to withdraw. But so far Weiner remains erect, holding his head up high, giving a deep throated defense of his mayoral candidacy.

With all the problems he’s faced and the withering criticism he’s received, you might think Weiner would just blow off this job, but he’s made it clear that when the rubber meets the road, he’s not going to shrivel from this latest challenge.

It may leave a bad taste in the mouths of voters, but for the time being, Weiner is still rigidly trying to come from behind and penetrate the political landscape of New York City.
