It is not an issue of hypocrisy.
it is:

his extremely poor attempt at dealing with a lapse in judgment.

He's a partisan pitbull who uses any and every opportunity to slam the other side and now it is his turn to be on the receiving end.

The yfrog stuff is pretty compelling regarding a frame job. BUT he still won't deny that's its not him. Taking the pic in the first place is as equally creepy as sending it out.

It's not a photo, it's a cartoon. Therefore your political party is WRONG.

It's called "sexting," and all the cool kids are doing it.

There really is no excuse for this. Cameras with high magnitude optical zoom have been available for quite some time now.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

This might be the goofiest political scandal of the 21st century. How much time and energy is going to be focused on this nonsense? If it's him, so what? If it's not, who cares? Bottom line is that if it is him, there's no crime being committed, and god knows that being in Congress carries no morals clause. The only person who has the right to demand any answers here is his wife. The rest of us should have better things to do.

He could've ended the "scandal" within the hour it broke by simply telling the truth. The problem is that he doesn't like the consequences of telling the truth.

Telling the truth would not end the scandal. That's ridiculous. People enjoy this sensational garbage and we would continue to see this story in the media until some other interesting scandal pops up, regardless of any truthful or fabricated response from Weiner.

Of course telling the truth ends the scandal. Because in spite of how good a liar someone is, nothing holds together as tightly as the truth. Show me a scandal where the truth was admitted up-front that continued to garner sensational coverage for any length of time.

...then look at the scandals that kept on going until the truth was revealed. Thinking that perpetuating a lie will help a scandal die is the thing that is ridiculous.

And relatively quickly came back to his 'ministry'. He's been making millions off fools again since not too long after the scandal.

He's just positioning himself for a run at the Big Office in 2016. Publicity Hound!

I'd have to do some exercising & lose some gut in order to get the thing properly framed.

Seriously (sorta)...re: his not being sure if it's his weenie or not, how many of us (who have a qualifying appendage) could actually identify our own junk if asked to pick it out of a lineup?

And, if you could...please don't share specifics of how you'd be able to do so. TMI fer sure.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

I could recognize my junk. But that's not what this was a photo of. It was underwear. Unless I knew for sure I took the photo, I'd have no idea if a crotch was mine or not.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Good news. Weiner has finally called the police.

Quote:
Weiner’s Office Calls The Police After CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer Asks For An Interview

Congressman Anthony Weiner said Thursday he’s finished talking about the lewd photo sent from his Twitter account. But he still wouldn’t say whether he’s the one in the picture.

So CBS 2 political reporter Marcia Kramer decided to go to his office on Capitol Hill to try to get you some answers. You’ll never believe what happened.

Kramer tried to get an interview with the six-term New York Democrat and as a result had the cops called on her.

Kramer walked in to Weiner’s office, announced herself as being from CBS 2 in New York City and said she’d like to see the congressman. Those few words created quite the stir. Doors slammed and people pretended she wasn’t there.

After Kramer left Weiner’s office, his staff called the Capitol Police.

The more I see of the "evidence" against Weiner, the more I think he's innocent. On the other hand, the more I see of Weiner's "defense," the more I think he's guilty.
