Hey, do you think the New York Times and Washington Post can ask a few of those readers they’ve enlisted to sift through Sarah Palin’s emails (an effort that’s going nowhere, by the way) to help Breitbart and Patterico as well as Michelle Malkin and others get to the bottom of the story of a member of US Congress sending several messages to a 17 year old high school girl?

The girl’s mother got a visit from Delaware police investigating Weiner’s messages.

The New York Times is doing what has become a pattern among the dinosaur mainstream media, which is following up on news that bloggers are breaking about public figures:

Representative Anthony D. Weiner said on Friday that he exchanged at least five private messages on Twitter this spring with a 17-year-old Delaware girl who became an admirer of his after hearing him speak during a high school trip to Washington.

Mr. Weiner’s spokeswoman, Risa Heller, did not provide copies of the messages, but said they were not inappropriate.

“According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent,” Ms. Heller said..

Anthony Weiner has proven to be a beacon of truth and integrity, so let’s just believe his account and move on.

Read the rest of the story though, because Weiner was almost certainly trolling for another “prick pic” victim. Weiner’s spokesman said the messages “were not inappropriate,” but also put yourself in the shoes of the girl’s parents and ask yourself if you would have thought it was appropriate or not.

What do you want to bet that Anthony Weiner has the gall to say, “You see, things like this are the reason I sponsored the Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators Act!”

Actually, I can’t believe Weiner never thought to take the Pete Townshend approach and claim he was simply doing research so he could improve subsequent legislation intended to safeguard the Internet from people like, well, Anthony Weiner.

In other Weiner news, yet another woman was in contact with him. She wrote to Weiner, “this week I have been extremely hot for you.” Are we talking about the same Weiner?

Weiner also reminded her that he’s busy because “I’m a very important man.” A common trait among political pervs is that these idiots always think they’re indestructible and have a pitifully over-inflated sense of their own self-worth.

Update: A “weekend Weiner dump” is under way. Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others are now calling on Weiner to resign. So what took these “staunch feminists” so long? (Rhetorical question… don’t bother answering…)

Update II: What a pitiful human being:

“Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person. In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well,” Weiner spokeswoman Risa Heller said in a statement released this afternoon.

If this doesn’t fly he’ll probably request time off under the Family Leave Act because his wife’s pregnant.

Seeking treatment would imply a disorder of some sort? So what’s the clinical name of the disorder that makes you take pictures of your d*#k and send it electronically to random women?

I’d intended to cover other topics today, but Weiner just isn’t letting me.

    For some reason I'm reminded of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, " what's your name?"

    This little episode of my favorite weiner might be enough to end his pathetic career.

    If he said anything to this 17 year old girl that might have the slightest sexual innuendo he's done.

    Not even a democrat can recover from that.

    On the other hand, if he had paid for her to have an abortion they would put his face on mount rushmore.

    I see over at Newsbusters CBS had a panel on this morning and THEY were dissing the MSM over their obsession with Palin and the emails. Ya know it's getting bad when the liberals see their own bias and question the stupidity of it all!!!

    I hope Palin just keeps pissing them off – it shows them what fools they are – haaaaahhaaaahhhhhhaaaaaaa. Love a good belly laugh first thing in the morning!

    Nasty Pelosi and the DNC chairwoman DWS are now saying Weiner must resign / go ! How things change ! Ha ha !

    Of course, the most ethical and morally upstanding Charlie Rangel says that since no little boys or prostitutes were involved, Weiner can and should stay ! Is this a line that won`t be crossed by the dems ? Does he mean that there ARE standards for the left ? Is this line "moveable" ?

    A dem and a rep decided to have a race in the desert. The dem said, "If I get there first, I`ll draw a line in the sand. If you get there first, rub it out !"


    A good belly laugh at any time is one of the few things that is as good as chocolate !

    Doug, your cartoon reminded me of when my Daughter was 2 and just talking really well. We had gotten our first cable service shortly before and we "thought" we were doing a good job preventing her from hearing the dirty words on HBO. She was standing on the couch singing and talking to me while I cleaned house before her Mom got home. Out of the blue, little Miss G. Carlin rolled off "the 7 dirty words not allowed on TV." We dropped HBO the next day !

    A little girl after my own heart!!! SPG – as the daughter of a truck driver I know and have personally used all seven words you couldn't say on TV at the time and a few more to boot. I still have a potty mouth. Needless to say – so do my three daughters – but we know the proper time and context to utter those words – usually within the confines of our home – not for public consumption. It does make for one hell of a family dinner though!!!

    BTW – the whole going for treatment thing – what a FU*^%G cat's vagina Weiner is. Man up Weiner! Listen to Johnny Cash's song – A Boy Named Sue – and figure it out. For someone with a loud mouth and a case of little man's disease – he sure is wimpin out!!!

    SOON to be be an addition to the "Unexpected growing unemployemnt list"…wiener one (pervert, Kommie, and all around asshat)

  9. Marshall_Will on June 12th, 2011 12:36 pm

    "(pervert, Kommie, and all around asshat)"

    I'm w/ Doug on this one. A-Wad should have taken the PTA ( Pete Townshend Approach ) and he'd have been in the rotation to play at the SuperBowl! Little Anthony and the Wankettes.

    I can't tell you as lifelong Who fan how disappointing that was. Moon's antics and Entwistle's life ending BLOW-binge weren't embarrassing enough for what for a time was the greatest band that ever played..?

    All this and The Left's incessant DEMAND for non-stop partying ( read funding ) has made 'Research' a dirty word. Cruising around the South Pacific w/ scantily clad co-eds looking for the "Swirling Mass of Floating Garbage The Size of Texas" ( for added fear-inducing effect ) sounds like a HOOT to me too!

    I believe him when he says he never said anything to this child that was "neither explicit nor indecent,” It's called grooming, it's what predators do. Grooming her until she's 'legal'. after all, he IS "a very omportant man" He praises them, gain their trust….and pounces like the venomous snake he is. let's see those emails.

  11. SignPainterGuy on June 12th, 2011 10:37 pm

    Now up at Weasel Zippers, Weiner is getting ready to commence to begin to think about considering that it just might be time to contemplate resigning ! And he is surprised that it took 2 weeks for the House Gym pictures to surface !

    I tell you, this guy is an absolute Wizard of Smarts ! It`s such a shame that just one district in NY has him all to themselves !
