At the moment, there can be no more welcome news for besieged Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-icktweet) than to hear that a beacon of integrity and ethics like Charles Rangel coming to his defense:

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D., N.Y.) tells NRO that he stands behind Rep. Anthony Weiner “100 percent” as the Twitter drama unfolds in Washington.

Rangel, who has been beset by scandalous charges in recent years, says that Weiner is likely the victim of a smear campaign. “It’s some kind of political game they’re playing,” he says. “I don’t know who did it, but that’s what they’re doing.”

That settles it then. Weiner definitely did something wrong.

Update: In a desperate attempt to make me confuse Anthony Weiner with Charlie Sheen, a porn star/stripper has come to the defense of Weiner.

Update II: Maybe Anthony and Charlie should team up for a live show — the “Violent Weiner of Truth” tour.

Update III: No matter how fun the jokes can be, let’s not forget the real reason Anthony Weiner is to be laughed at:

null

Uh huh.

Update IV: The funny just keeps on coming: Weiner now claims he “can’t say with certitude” if the crotch picture was of him. Jeez, how many guys in their underwear were at Weiner’s house that night? Seems like he’d at least recognize the skivvies. You’ve got to look at a lot of crotch shots to forget what your own looks like.

Oddly enough though, he’s still sticking to the “hacker” story:

Update V: Remember who officiated Weiner’s wedding?

    This is the equivalent of the baseball team owner saying he is 100% behind his manager ten minutes before firing the sorry SOB. 'Bye, Tony!

    Tony ain't going nowhere – libs just add stuff like this to their resume. Ya know there is nothing wrong with taking a picture of your junk and sending it to an admirer and 44000 of your friends. And when you have the media standing in your corner cheering you on perhaps next time he will drop the tidy whities and send along a pic of the little johnson in the raw. His little general complex plays well with the lib media. And getting the backing of Rangel is a BIG badge of honor for the little man from NY.

    Better check to see if that photo is on Craig's List.

    Update VI – Weiner is still an a$$hole.

    But isn't having a Congressman standing behind you the same as having a professional pickpocket standing behind you?

    Thanks! Now I don't have to do any more updates because that says it all!

    Wow, there sure are a lot of leaches, oops, I mean cream of the leftist crop in Tony`s close circle ! Nothing but the most fine and upstanding members of society for ol` Antney !

    Long answer, yeeeeesssss !

    "Long answer"

    One assumes your comment is not in reference to the escalating Weiner weiner conundrum.

  10. Jimbo on June 1st, 2011 6:35 pm

    Given the thousands of erection pictures he files through in his private collection each and every day, of course he doesn't have any certitude. And distinguishing them from his weiner wallpaper, his weiner fine art, his weiner linens, his weiner upholstery, and his weiner sculptures… a hopeless task.

  11. SignPainterGuy on June 1st, 2011 7:01 pm

    Just the quickest way for me to cover the "long" AND the "short" of it !

  12. swede on June 1st, 2011 11:37 pm

    Thanks for the skinny!

    Old joke in Iowa, (John Deere country) … John Deere makes just one implement they won't stand behind… the manure spreader.
