His ego has no bounds.
In a dazzling display of arrogance, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner is trying to insert himself back into politics -- calling power brokers and would-be candidates for his old seat, hoping they'll let him play a role in choosing his own successor, The Post has learned.

Seems there os some tongue in cheek humor in this article. nyuk, nyuk.
os = is
spellchek? waht be that?

It sounds painful.
Having trouble maintaining a reaction....

Not in time for the nwe season of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew”
nwe = new
I swear I really will use spelchek some day.
It took a while, but Weiner did submit a letter of resignation.

When we’ve come to the point where it is the kingmaker which has no clothes, the bar is set pretty low for the new king.
King maker? I fancied him more of a bishop polisher...
The shame is that you, Mr. Weiner, served dishonorably. Now, disappear into oblivion where you deserve to be.
You R@t Ba$turd, slime ball!!!
