Patterico's Pontifications


Anthony Weiner’s Rehab Continues!

Filed under: General,Humor — Patterico @ 4:36 pm

P.S: Just so it’s clear, there is no proof this is actually Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account. I just thought the screencap was funny.

And hey — maybe it is him! On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.

  1. Why does Weiner still have the @RepWeiner account, btw?

  2. I’m itching for another monster thread. Can we have another one of those, do you think?

  3. I don’t think so.

  4. I just happened to Google where Weiner was during the NY-9 race last week, and Spectator amusingly, if not ironically, observed,

    Yet where was Mr. Weiner during this race? Well, The American Spectator has had its investigative team following him and they report from posh Positano, Italy, along the Amalfi coast, that last week he dined with his wife Huma Abedin and a very cosmopolitan party at a very upscale restaurant, La Sponda. Mr. Weiner appeared subdued, but Huma was rather vociferous and denouncing the prudery of America to her polyglot companions. She objected to the provinciality of America, talking about the country as though this were 1924 and Anthony Comstock were burning licentious books. Apparently her dinner mates approved of her husband’s hobby. Maybe it was an international photography club for exhibitionists, though our crew reports that all were fully dressed.

  5. Wow. I guess she’s standing by her man.

  6. Why does Weiner still have the @RepWeiner account, btw?

    Good question. Is he still planning a big comeback?

    Patterico (f724ca)

  7. She’s not standing by her man but rather on her man…in sharp spiked heels, and he doesn’t dare make a move without her permission. And if he wants to maintain the peace, Yes, dear will be his refrain. After all, what is an unemployed pervert to do?

    Dana (4eca6e)

  8. Well, if you look at it that way, I guess it’s a good thing.

  9. I’m confused. According to the Post, Weiner was in NYC this week. Movingf out.

  10. elissa, this is from last week.

    Dana (4eca6e)

  11. American Spectator, Sept. 16, 2011.

    It was a busy week for him?

    Dana (4eca6e)

  12. My favorite blog post from Tuesday NY9 election coverage–

    In a report, it says that Weiner “showed up alone, wearing jeans and a blazer.” It’s bad when news reports need to emphasize you were wearing pants…

    elissa (865f7b)

  13. Because of the Internet, everyone knows Weiner is a dog.

    Karl (37b303)

  14. And this is my second favorite quip– Ny9 winner Bob Turner pledges to only use his twitter acct when fully clothed.

  16. did Weiner know that
    Monica available
    when marry Huma?

    elissa (865f7b)

  17. gift keeps on giving
    making fun of Weiner man
    never will get old

    elissa (865f7b)

  18. Is this Weiner? I don’t know. Scientific inquiry is called for.

    Proposed methodology: Create false Twitter account for “Cindi LaRack, 21, Drama Major, UNLV.” Send suggestive tweet to questioned account, using photo culled from Examine response, hiring forensic urologist if necessary.

    Ken (ab0ae5)

  19. So…I guess it is good that Weiner’s tweets are protected?

    Sorry about that.

  20. weiner waggin’ just
    strange compensation for his
    narrow urethra

  21. It’s likely that James Taranto’s retweeting old Weiner tweets to great comic effect last Tuesday has something to do with Weiner’s new-found modesty. Here’s a prime choice by James. Here’s another.

  22. Weiner is a Weiner.


    DohBiden (d54602)

  23. I love that his seat was lost. =)

    Is this a new or old account? If it’s old I would guess it is really him. Don’t people in the public eye always grab their names from whatever site starts up?

    Noodles (3681c4)

  24. I do NOT want to “Stay in touch with Anthony Weiner.”

    htom (412a17)

  25. It’s interesting, Patterico, that some “experts” in Weiner tweetage haven’t chimed in on this one, huh?

    Simon Jester (f5a576)

  26. I never knew that “Gaylord the Dog” was gay, but he does “come with a bone of his own.”

  27. Comment by Dana — 9/17/2011

    I just happened to Google where Weiner was during the NY-9 race last week, [American Spectator said in Italy]

    I think that was the previous week (Labor day week)

    The New York Post reported Monday (on its front page) that Anthony Weiner was taking the last of his possessions out of his Queens home and they had a picture of him carrying a cardboard box (and said he now has a place in Greenwich Village) and the Daily News reported Tuesday or Wednesday that he had voted in the election (although New Yorkers do this, if you have moved you’re not supposed to vote at your old address)

    So also says New York Magazine:

    Anthony Weiner Voted for David Weprin Today

    * 9/13/11 at 4:12 PM

    Peggy Noonan reporting about Michael Daly’s reporting (I thought Michael Daly wrote for the Daily News)

    The best day-after reporting came from Michael Daly in the Daily Beast, who accompanied Mr. Weiner as he voted in Forest Hills. At one point the former congressman saw a woman with her arm in a sling and asked what happened. She said she’d fallen down some steps. “Just a little advice,” said Mr. Weiner: “Come up with a more dramatic story.” She said that she’d been taking care of someone’s dog when it caused her to fall. Mr. Weiner suggested she change it by saying she and the dog had been chasing a bad guy down the street. “Heroically,” Mr. Weiner added. He said his advice was from “a politician.” He caught himself and said, “a former politician.”

  28. Lorena Bobbit call Huma Abedin.

  29. Anthony Weiner and his 0.5 inch cock voted for David Weprin.

  30. “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.”

    That would explain a lot, now that you mention it. Because I’m thinking that really, see, there was this alien space ray? And that it was focused on two places, and it was supposed to let one of the aliens temporarily occupy the minds of one of our national leaders? But, uh, like, then — on accident, ‘k? — Anthony Weiner the Congressman got in one part of the ray, and instead of an alien, like, just then an earth dog jumped into the other part of the ray. So that the earth dog’s mind got inside Anthony Weiner the Congressman, like? And you know, dogs can lick themselves. And they do, because, like, they can, you know? But the dog-brain inside Anthony Weiner the Congressman couldn’t get his body to do that, so it was really frustrated. And then, you know, well it was like: Hey! Every time I have to make a decision, the dog brain says “Do this!” And I have to, because otherwise I’ll have to rip off my pants and run around in smaller and smaller circles trying to lick …. See, get it?

    I think that’s what probably happened. Probably.

  31. I cannot afford private insurance so that leaves me with medicare.

    DohBiden (d54602)

  32. I’m very sorry. That last comment by me was defamatory.

    To all dogs, everywhere.

    Beldar (297c12)

  33. Dogs are smarter than Weiner.
