Anthony Weiner: I'd Probably Be Mayor if Not For the Internet

(Ben Yakas) The clock may be resting perilously at 14:59, but Anthony Weiner is still finding ways to stay in the public eye, whether it means submitting to interviews with Sean Hannity or throwing tantrums over little kid's pee.

Like, if I was running in 1955? I’d probably get elected mayor.”

The piece, "The Year of Living Carlos Dangerously," pointedly starts with reporter Marshall Sella offering Weiner his theory about sexting and the hypocrisy of the electorate: "Weiner mulled over my generational theory, then called it 'overly simplistic,' which is what people always say when they want to gain the intellectual high ground on a topic." Even after he's been ridiculed in public for his arrogance, even with the opportunity to put a final spin in one of the last post-mortem pieces on his failed campaign, Weiner can't help himself.
