53. He's a sinner, he needs to purge himself of his afliction.
The Dem. Party has officially demonstrated it's fundie creds.

Still hoping for a pat on the head from the far right fringes. They are truly spineless.

A party that now views sex as something to be ashamed of.

A party that takes its cues on who needs to be tossed overboard from Andrew Breitbart.

How many have they betrayed for him now altogether?

A party that we know will never stand up for you once Andrew Breitbart declares you 'persona non grata'

There was no hope of the party backing him once Breitbart decided he had to go. Not a single Democrat has ever survived a Breitbart attack that I am aware of. Who is this guy working for?

Weiner should ignore them all, he should stay and he should make it a mission to expose the Breitbart smear machine for what it is.

We are on our own also, as the party caters to Corporate America. So he is not alone at least.
