Weiner: Hopes to Penetrate

Weiner: I Hope 'Ideas Penetrate'

Politicians can survive sex scandals. Politicians can succeed with the last name "Weiner." But it remains to be seen if a politician can survive both.

Disgraced former-Congressman Anthony Weiner is already seeing his hopes of becoming the next mayor of New York City go up in smoke. Thursday, New York governor and fellow Democrat, Andrew Cuomo, spanked Weiner, saying "shame on us" if we elect him. Tuesday, no less than The New York Times published a high-profile article slamming Weiner for his lack of a campaign infrastructure.

Usually the Democrats cirle the wagons around their fallen comrades.. but maybe not.

    I’d be surprised if New Yorkers selected a man based on the fame of his underwear. However, with favorite TV shows about sex in the city and desperate housewives, who can tell?

    politically, he was one of the good guys, but what a screwup otherwise . . . nothing would shock me, but if he has a comeback that might at least surprise me . . .

    If Sanford can run and win after deserting his job to see his Mistress on the people’s dime, well then, anyone can get elected.
