No, it’s not a joke. At least . . . it’s not meant as one:
After having learned of your sudden and compelled resignation from your Congressional post, I would like to make you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in our Internet group.
Hahahahahahahaha. And he’s not kidding:
I cannot emphasize enough the genuineness of this offer. We are a serious corporation which, as you know, has been heavily involved in the political environment of this country for over thirty-five years. . . . Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers.
This is the second Weiner-related post today that sounded like it was coming straight out of the Onion. The first?
Reports on Twitter say that the Capitol police have Weiner’s office and the corridor in the Rayburn Building closed because of a “suspicious package.”
Oh, you’re not giving that package due credit.
