Anthony Weiner who spoke with vigor and passion for the people made some terrible mistakes that were a minor offense in the context of his brilliant career. It was not news that the Republicans would damage his life and career for their own political means while not purging their own sexually wayward kind. It is not a surprise for the mainstream media persecute him relentlessly like gossipers at the Supermarket check-out stand. They have a pulpit, and they need to fill 24 hours every day and it does not matter at whose expense. In my opinion, it is the classic definition of a street whore.
What bothered me is that Brutus in the name of Obama, Pelosi, the majority of Weiner's own party and those on MSNBC either as broadcasters or invited pundits, all took stabs at Weiner every day. It was like the Ides of March, like the Last Supper, like the 8th ring of the 8th chasm of Hell that your own blood turn on you.
Today, after Weiner resigned, the same MSNBC media tried to expunge the blood by blaming the Republicans. Out damn spot, but in my mind, the blood stains are indelible and clear.
The loss is the American people's. There are no other Anthony Weiners. The Republicans are licking their chops. Female reporters seem to smirk at bringing him down. Democrats just want to forget their actions at the Forum and call for getting back to work.
They are all trying to put their lynching behind them. They all take a high road after a couple of weeks in the gutter. I hope Current TV will offer Weiner a spot near Olbermann's new show. At least he will be able to be heard.
For those who think he was disgusting, just look at your own laundry. Then see if you can throw the first stone.... thanks for reading.
