Anthony Weiner is seeking counseling. Anthony Weiner is probably going to take a leave of absence. Anthony Weiner’s wife is standing behind him, (or isn’t she?). Anthony Weiner is losing weight, overemotional when talking to friends on the phone, distraught. (NYTimes, “Pelosi Calls on Weiner to Resign”)
This all makes perfect sense to me.
This, however, does not:
“His scandal erupted at a particularly bad time for the party, as Democrats had briefly regained momentum after a surprise victory in an upstate New York election, and put Republicans on the defensive over a proposal to revamp Medicare.”
I apologize if this is a stupid question, but what do Anthony Weiner’s sexual proclivities have to do with the Democratic party and their momentum towards revamping Medicare?
Maybe if the media didn’t act like we were complete idiots unable to differentiate between these two vastly different topics we wouldn’t all act like complete idiots unable to differentiate between these two vastly different topics.
Maybe it’s just me.
