Weinergate

So, he signed up to follow 1000 beautiful women on Twitter and one of them received a tweet from him of somebody in their underpants which he says he can't say with certitude isn't him.

Not a very convincing story.

"I'm reluctant to say anything definitively about this because I don't know to what extent our system was hacked," he said.

WEINER: I can tell you this. We have a firm that we've hired -- I've seen it, it's -- I've seen it -- a firm that we've hired to get to the bottom of it.

I can tell you this, that photos can manipulated. Photos can be of one thing changed to look like something else. We're going to try to get the bottom of what happened....

BLITZER: Well, we just want to resolve it once and for all. You would know if this is your underpants, for example.

WEINER: The question is -- I appreciate you continuing to flash that at me.

Look, I've said the best I can, that we're going to try to get to the bottom of what happened here. But you know, I just want to caution you -- and you understand this, you're a pro -- that photographs can be manipulated. Photographs can be taken up from one place and put in another place, photos they can be doctored. And I want to make sure that we know for sure what happened here.

It certainly doesn't look familiar to me, but I don't want to say with certitude to you something that I don't know to be the certain truth....

BLITZER: Have you ever taken a picture of yourself like this?

WEINER: I can tell you this, that there are -- I have photographs. I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me. I don't know what things have been manipulated and doctored, and we're going to try to find out what happened.



If one hasn't been standing around in one's underpants for the camera, you certainly would be able to say with certitude it wasn't you.

Stay tuned as Weiner's story is still a moving target.

I thought Weinergate was about Barney Frank.

Kelly, there's something disturbing about the whole thing. As a mother of two young women, if he is a pervert, I don't feel very good about letting him cover it up.

Carol: I don't feel very good about letting him cover it up.

I'm shocked. Shocked! You mean you would have preferred he expose it? :-) :-) :-)

(You set me up for that one, didn't you?)

How do these slimeballs get elected? It's totally depressing. Especially since I wasn't among the "Raptured". :-(

Carol McKinley said...

Jack O'Malley!

You're too funny. From the sounds of it, this slimeball didn't leave too much to the imagination?

He's a dink.

What?

Carol McKinley said...

God has a wonderful sense off humor, doesn't he?

Maybe he'll go on American Idol with a new version of "Pants on the Ground"?

(in my best Urkel voice)
Did I say that?

It's getting harder and harder to follow his story...


....what?

Carol McKinley said...

You are a funny dude.

Jack O'Malley said...

I think Weiner should stand erect and come clean. No more pussyfooting. What a limp Member of Congress. Typical. Not even a prick of conscience.

Carol McKinley said...

Jack, I had a hearty laugh at your post this morning but as the day progressed, I realized it was actually rather prophetic!

Jack O'Malley said...

Thanks, Carol. Let us hope that for Weiner it's also rather prophylactic!

You are a funny man, sir. 8^)
