If you haven’t been following the clusterfuck online, Weiner just did a presser where he admitted he sent the photos. Prior to that, Andrew Breitbart randomly showed up and hijacked the presser for twenty minutes, crowing about how he deserves to be vindicated because of Leftist smears. Then Weiner took the stage, did the old Lewinsky two-step, complete with crying.
For fuck’s sake.
So to recap: It was Weiner’s junk; He’s had many inappropriate online relationships with young women; Breitbart FTW; Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
So now what?
As of this afternoon, no one in the MSM has bothered to report on the Clarence Thomas connection. I fully believe that Breitbart’s cronies knew for weeks about this Weiner business and timed it to distract from the real issue which, as Allan Brauer pointed out last week, is CLARENCE THOMAS. Whether or not Anthony Weiner is a dipshit for lying about his junk photos (and in my view he is, not because I give a shit what goes on between two consenting adults and the lies that inevitably result when a person is busted for their sexual chicanery, but because he wasted TEN DAYS that could have been spent finding another Democrat to pick up the Clarence Thomas ball and run with it), the fact remains that he is the only Democrat who was making a stink about the Friday evening Thomas financial document dump.
So now the MSM is going to kiss Breitbart’s ass while he crows about how awesome he is. And by the time the dust settles, not one person (besides Allan, apparently) will have examined just what the fuck is going on with Clarence Thomas and his Teabilly wife.
