But it appears they’ve had enough.
Wow. Just wow.
So NY Congressman Anthony Weiner, clearly one of the intellectually smartest members of Congress (and a hero to progressives everywhere) was lying after all. Here is the always interesting New York Post’s take:
Here’s the naked truth about Rep. Anthony Weiner — he’s an Internet perv.
A “deeply ashamed” Weiner openly wept during a news conference this afternoon in Manhattan — admitting that he made “terrible mistakes” in sending lewd pictures of himself to women he met on Facebook and Twitter over the past few years.
Weiner, who choked back tears several times, also said he was “not resigning” — but took “full responsibility for my actions” over the last few years.
So not only was he lying, but he sent erotic pictures of himself standing in front of framed photos of him and his wife and political confidantes, including President Bill Clinton (no irony there!).
In my mind, this should have been between Weiner and his wife IF Weiner had come clean from the beginning. Now it’s all about the cover-up.

I love how she just bumbles her way through this without even stopping to think about what is coming out of her mouth. She really is a marvel of unprocessed input/output at times.
“And, ya know, right after that, they all met up at Gettysburg in Charlestown where George Washington flew his famous kite and discovered the very thunder we steal, dontcha know, from the lamestream media!”
OK. She didn’t actually say that. But she could have.
Some people’s lives look far more interesting than mine will be this weekend:
