55. Gawd - how many apologies can be made for his lying and radically stupid behavior!?
Edited on Sun Jun-12-11 11:19 AM by RiverStone
It's hard to accept that one of our own, particular a fighter as articulate as Anthony Weiner, fucked up to this degree - but if he was a teacher, he would be long fired. I can't fathom why some assume its OK for him to remain in office where now he has simply made a fool of himself! This distraction needs to end ASAP.

And yes, I have heard the meme that other dickheads (David "Diaper" Vitter) remained in office - he should have had the guts to resign too! 2 wrongs...
