Chalk up another analytical victory for Ace of Spades. When stripper Ginger Lee expressed excitement at getting a DM (direct message) from Anthony Weiner, Ace said:
[S]he does not appear to be, like many strippers or porn actresses, perpetually drunk and stoned. In that video appearance, she’s stone cold sober.
The video appearance, by the way, is this one.
What a cute accent. Back to Ace:
So, this woman is at least fairly intelligent (I would say above-average intelligence) and does not appear to be boozehound or smackwhore.
Now, you tell me: Would this woman confuse an automated blow-off like “Thank you very much for taking an interest in Anthony Weiner. Please visit AnthonyWeiner.com for further news about Anthony Weiner” for a DM worth getting excited about, and talking about, and calling a “trifecta of win”?
Would she get from that “pro-forma” message the idea that he “likes her blog”?
If I got the sense from her that she is very dumb, or very substance-compromised, I could buy that.
But I get the opposite sense. I do not believe for one red hot second an intelligent, clear-minded woman could possibly mistake “Drink More Ovaltine” for a genuine personal message from Anthony Weiner.
Guess what? Ace was right. The Daily Caller proves it. The evidence? Any pro-forma Weiner message, as Weiner claims Ginger Lee got, would have occurred on March 3. Her excitement over a Weiner DM was 10 days later.
So, Weiner sent her a personal message. Not an impersonal, pro forma one.
Which he denied. Which just means he lied. Again.
But you already knew that.
