The Wienie Weasel

Congressman Weiner seeks treatment after sex scandal

WASHINGTON | Sat Jun 11, 2011 4:24pm EDT
(Reuters) - Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, under pressure to resign after being snared in an online sex scandal, is seeking professional treatment and requesting a leave of absence from the House of Representatives, an aide said on Saturday.
Weiner's office announced the development shortly after top House Democrats publicly called on the 46-year-old lawmaker to step down.
In a brief statement, the congressman's spokesperson, Risa Heller, indicated that Weiner would remain in office at least until he receives unspecified professional help.
"Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," Heller said in the statement.
"In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well."

  6. While the Weiner Freak Show continues…the Scurf of Reporters sifting through Palin's emails are coming up short:

    The trove of more than 13,000 emails detailing almost every aspect of Sarah Palin’s governorship of Alaska, released late on Friday, paints a picture of her as an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.
    One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.
    If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as “an embarrassment for legacy media”.
    Mrs Palin, who suddenly resigned as Alaska governor in July 2009, is no longer a public official. She holds no position in the Republican party. Despite the media hubbub that surrounds her every move, she is unlikely to be a candidate for the White House in 2012.
    She is, however, viewed with a kind of horrified fascination by many in the media, who faithfully records everything she says and does while at the same time decrying her as ignorant and even evil.
    Whether or not she runs for the White House – and the solid consensus among Republican leaders is that she won’t – the scramble over the Palin emails confirms her status as a pivotal figure in the race to challenge President Barack Obama next year.

  14. Maybe Weiner should be gelded so that he can focus all his energy on taking down the Republic.

  15. They could. They do. Most breeding, now, is done that way, I believe. But, this is a horse that, I don't think, was very highly regarded. They might not have.

    Shit!!! Ain't that the truth! I didn't factor in the damned weather. Last I heard everybody was on the beaches soaking up the sun and bullets.

    Mucho had those new glue shoes on and the mud was ankle deep and at forty yards he was carrying an extre 40 pounds of stuck on mud and even Mucho Macho Man could not overcome it.

    My wife hit on the 24 to 1 winner, she always bets longshots, and my daughter lost on all her three bets.

    Shit!!!! I forgot to factor the weather.

  21. And, we got our three free Belmont Stakes glasses for my daughter's collection, AND she won one of five Belmont Stakes T-shirts in the drawing, so she can say At least I didn't lose my shirt like dad, in fact I won a shirt. Which is exactly what she said.

    I took a heavy hit, and I'm finished with Mucho Macho Man, and reading about sports in the Wall Street Urinal.

  27. One thing before I go to bed: I want to "come back" as a Democrat. Those guys have ALL the fun.

    And, "job security?" Wowsers (he's polling about 2:1 in his district, as we speak.)

    When Edwards (Crook, La) was running against David Duke (yeah, that D. Duke) he, famously, said, "the only way I could lose this election would be to get caught in bed with a live boy, or a dead woman."

    He was from the wrong part of the country. If he'd been from New Yawk he wouldn't even have had those worries.

  29. In successive statements, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged Weiner to conduct his rehabilitation outside the confines of public office. Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) the ranking member of the Budget Committee and former DCCC head, followed with the same request 45 minutes later.

    “Congressman Weiner has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents, and the recognition that he needs help," said Pelosi, whose word carries the most weight of the group. "I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a Member of Congress.”

    It would be interesting to see if the poll was taken before or after it was reported he was tweeting privately with a high school junior.

    If so, you would have to admit that those New Yorkers truly are liberal.

    Alleged plotter of 1998 embassy attacks is killed

    SANAA, Yemen — The alleged architect of the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa was killed in the Somali capital this week, removing one of al-Qaeda’s most notorious operatives and delivering a potent setback to al-Shabab, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia.

    Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, considered the most-wanted man in East Africa, was the third major al-Qaeda leader slain in six weeks. Osama bin Laden was killed in early May, and Ilyas Kashmiri, who was implicated in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, died a month later in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan...

    Obamacare has some good things in it, such as, the stipulation that insurance can't be refused due to pre-existing conditions. However, I personally have been opposed to is for three main reasons: first, because it was supposedly designed to cut health care costs; yet it is larded with assumptions on cost cutting that will never happen. Second, because I think it has provisions in it that are unconstitutional, mainly the individual mandate. And third, because of the IPAB, the independant cost cutting board that Sarah Palin referred to as 'death panels'.

    Time will tell whether Congress will ever follow through with the cost cutting they promised in the bill but I am not holding my breath.

    The 'individual mandate' provisions will soon be before the Supreme Court.

    With regard to the IPAB, I fear Palin was right in her characterization of it as a 'death panel'. At a minimum, if allowed to stand as legislated it will have a tremendous negative effect on the healthcare available to most Americans at some point in their lives.

    From what I knew of it, I was leary of IPAB from day one. However, George Will goes into a little more detail explaining what Congress has done to us in creating IPAB.

    The PPACA repeatedly refers to any IPAB proposal as a “legislative proposal” and speaks of “the legislation introduced” by the IPAB. Each proposal automatically becomes law unless Congress passes — with a three-fifths supermajority required in the Senate — a measure cutting medical spending as much as the IPAB proposal would.

    This is a travesty of constitutional lawmaking: An executive branch agency makes laws unless Congress enacts legislation to achieve the executive agency’s aim.

    And it gets worse. Any resolution to abolish the IPAB must pass both houses of Congress. And no such resolution can be introduced before 2017 or after Feb. 1, 2017, and must be enacted by Aug. 15 of that year. And if passed, it cannot take effect until 2020. Defenders of all this audaciously call it a “fast track” process for considering termination of IPAB. It is, however, transparently designed to permanently entrench IPAB — never mind the principle that one Congress cannot by statute bind another Congress from altering that statute..."


    Death Panels that can't be Legislated Away

    I was opposed to IPAB because if Congress chooses not to vote on an IPAB proposals, the proposal automatically goes into effect.

    This is a perfect out for any Congress that wants to wash its hands of responsibility on any tough decisions. Don't vote and then pompously blame the results on IPAB.

    What I didn't realize was just how difficult it would be to overturn an IPAB 'proposal'.

    And since IPAB has only one mandate, to cut costs, the ultimate impact of IPAB decisions should be clear to all.

    It's not your father's medicare kids.

    Quirk, you are firing on all eight cylinders tonight. I agree with everything you've said.

    And I think the USSC will find it unconstitutional. I hope.
