Really, New York Times?

The New York Times prints unfounded, vicious gossip about Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin.

Sipping sparkling water by the bustling patios of Bryant Park on Wednesday afternoon, the young women touched on the usual topics of lunchtime gossip: men, work, relationships.

And it’s apparently Upper Middle Class gossip. The Times does understand that Weiner is running for mayor of all of New York City, not just the Upper East Side, right? Is print in such trouble that it can’t afford to spring for a cab to Harlem?

As her companions nodded, Noebeth Toro, 30, said she could understand how Ms. Abedin chose to stand by her husband in 2011 when he was first discovered sending explicit messages to women online. But she was puzzled to see her beside Mr. Weiner once again on Tuesday, defending him despite new revelations of more recent online encounters.

“Fool me once, shame on you,” Ms. Toro said. “Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Her colleague, Jessica Marrocco, 26, suspected another motive.

“I think she’s really just doing it for the publicity, and she wants a husband in office,” she said. “Because no self-respecting woman would stand up there and say that something like that’s O.K.”

Abedin, I’m sure, appreciates that Toro “understands” why she did something that’s none of Toro’s business. Meanwhile, her friend Marrocco accuses a perfect stranger of being a shameless attention seeker. And she comes to the conclusion thanks to sparkling water and the fizzy substance inside her head.

The Ballad of Carlos Danger…

anthony-weiner-i-regret-not-telling-you-when-lewd-sex-chats-happened
In the middle of the night when his wife has retired
prowls a disgraced politician whom we once admired
With his long wooden pipe,
fuzzy, woolly palms
he trolls the Internet and everybody knows him

Carlos (Carlos)
Carlos Danger
He’s only three feet tall
Carlos (Carlos)
Carlos Danger
The bravest little flasher of them all

Now Internet predators are creeps you know
They don’t like to hurry and they take things slow
They don’t like to travel away from home
They just want to expose themselves and be left alone
But one day Carlos decided to go
on a big adventure to the city he knows
to help the Democrats get back the mayorship
that was stolen by Giuliani in the days of old

Carlos (Carlos)
Carlos Danger
The bravest little flasher of them all

Now his poll numbers have sunk and he might have to retire
that disgraced politician we all used to admire
just sittin’ alone as his campaign hopes ebb
flashing his pipe on the World Wide Web

Carlos (Carlos)
Carlos Danger
He’s only three feet tall
Carlos (Carlos)
Carlos Danger
The bravest little flasher of them all

Weiner Setback…

Reuters reports that Anthony Weiner’s sideline as an amateur porn star has not been good for his mayoral campaign:

New disclosures of explicitly sexual online chats have cost former Congressman Anthony Weiner the lead in the New York City mayor’s race and helped City Council Speaker Christine Quinn pull ahead among Democratic voters, according to a poll released on Thursday.

Quinn is openly gay, so perhaps New York is so sick of Weiner’s penis, they not only prefer a female candidate but one for whom any possible sex scandal will not involve a penis in any capacity.

However, it is still possible for Weiner to win the primary but only if he legally changes his name to Carlos Danger. Who wouldn’t vote for that guy?
