There is a distinct smell coming out of Washington these days and it is hard to tell if it is from the stagnate waters of the Congressional swamp or the decaying flesh of dying-on-the-vine-Congressional people, but it definitely reeks. And nothing stinks more than the vile actions of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) who has made a name – and career – for himself by being one of the most vicious attack men in Congress, beginning with his first race – 1991 – for Councilman in NYC’s 48th District in South Brooklyn
Weiner entered into the political arena as an aide to NY Congressman Charles (Chuck) Schumer. Having tasted the political opulence, Weiner wanted in and, at the encouragement and suggestion of Schumer, he went back to New York where he threw his hat into the political ring in the heavily Jewish Brooklyn neighborhood. Almost totally unknown, he wasn’t the favorite; but, the all-knowing-ever-brilliant Schumer protege` pulled a dirty trick and anonymously issued a flyer implying that his opponents – Michael Garson of the Brooklyn Democrats and Adele Cohen of the progressive/labor coalition – were involved in the Crown Heights riots which had occurred just a few weeks before. His flyer indicated the other candidates were tightly connected with Jesse Jackson, who had called NYC “Hymie town,” a hideously derogative term for the Jewish constituents. It was only after Weiner won the election that he admitted his campaign had done the deed.
But doing deeds is something Anthony Weiner is quite good at. Thirteen months ago, Weiner went on attack against Glenn Beck and his affiliation with Goldline, an advertiser on the Glenn Beck Fox program. The attack was as vicious, base and stupid as the one he had presented years before in his first NYC Council campaign, and it got him droves of media attention, all of which made him meaner and allowed him to perceive he had been granted more power.
The sickening little man full of pride, arrogance, and self importance thought he could do anything. Little did anyone know that, behind the scenes, the small man was sending sexting pictures of himself to women across the United States. At this writing no one knows for sure just how many pictures were sent to how many women, nor how many filthy texts or tweets were being sent from the privacy of his Congressional office, which he denies just as he denied the sexting. But we do know one thing for sure, Anthony Weiner is not an honorable man. As much as he says he didn’t do anything wrong – at least in the eyes of Congress – we know he is and will be held accountable in the eyes of God. If it is wrong for children – junior high and high school – to be sexting pictures of the private parts of their bodies and they, in turn are being charged with and found guilty of porn and placed on registries, then why-oh-why would a Congressman be less guilty.
To sum the situation up, there is a tiny little Congressman from NYC who lives in Washington with his practicing Muslim wife who is in very tight with the Clintons (Hillary’s right-hand-lady) and he is flaunting himself across the country … hopefully, it is only in the United States and those-things-which-should-be-private aren’t going around the world. Then, this is the day of high technology when everything moves with the speed of lightning and poor little Congressman Weiner has gained a fame that he never imagined.
Perhaps Princess Nancy will actually drain the swamp a little and send the Congressman home for a long and permanent rest with disgrace branded across his face. Or better yet, maybe one of his Muslim wife’s relatives will do us the honor of taking him out for a long, never ending ride and demonstrate Sharia law. Either one is just fine with me.
One thing is for sure, as he toddles off to his chambers at night, maybe visions-of-accusations-past will creep through his head as he tosses and turns in his lonely bed with re-runs of the assaults against Garson, Cohen, Beck, and whomever else he has targeted. Somewhere in the silence of the long nights, maybe he’ll remember words that he surely must have heard at least once in his life…”what goes around comes around”… Have fun grabbing for the brass ring Rep. Weiner for you truly are one.
