New York Post ^ | May 15, 2013 | DAVID SEIFMAN

Posted on 05/15/2013 6:29:55 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Anthony Weiner’s bid to rise from the political dead is ready to begin in earnest — the disgraced former congressman will announce he is running for mayor as early as next week, according to sources.

“He’s definitely running,” one Weiner ally told The Post.

After weeks of hinting at a run, Weiner has taken a major step toward firing up his campaign by hiring a manager to guide his mayoral bid, according to a report.

I have to think this is really just all about making money. The only way Weiner has ever made a dollar is in politics. And I suspect he knows that a person can make just as much money losing as they can make winning. Maybe more. Especially if you never pay off your campaign debts.

And here I thought the cause of his resignation from congress was the inability to keep his erections off the front page . . .

If he can remain rigid and shaft the competition,
stiffing it out for a win, it will be
a huma of a mocking year for Leno and his followers.

Headline writers like to run with seedy jokes whenever the editor is not paying attention.

Still have an old copy of the Pittsburgh Press at home with a story about some Greenpeace nuts who went over to Russia on a boat and got captured. Their release had been negotiated. The headline: Release of Seamen Expected!

The old Marine Master Sergeant who taught the section on writing headlines and cutlines for photos at the Defense Information School in 1970 told us to read and reread everything we wrote with the dirtiest possible mind because if we didn’t someone else would.

Islamist pitching for ‘First Lady’ of New York City?

… Make no mistake,whether Abedin has Brotherhood sympathies or not,her mother –Saleha Abedin –is a leader within the Muslim Sisterhood and would undoubtedly view such a reality as a symbolic victory on par with the construction of the Ground Zero mosque. It seems that both Huma and Weiner are itching to get back into public life as well.

… .. If Anthony Weiner is elected mayor of New York City,the first lady of the city will be the daughter of a leader within the group that serves as the umbrella group for the one that brought down the World Trade Center.

And Huma has neither denounced that group or her mother’s role in it.

Your old Sarge was right - gave good advice. But in this case - this head doesn't seem to require too close a reread... Funny stuff... thanks for sharing.

This one got by because the writer and the editor did not properly read the headline or take the proper editing steps. Back then everything was manually typed and the copy was taken to a typesetter, either linotype or one of the first computerized type setters that produced single-line tape that you then waxed and stripped onto the flat. It was easy to miss things back then among the thousands of words. In one case we missed a sports team headline that read “Center Women Run Around” instead of “Center Women Run Aground”. The worst was when we redid the masthead that listed the publisher (the commanding general), the public affairs officer and myself. I almost missed the mistake in the first proof page prints that listed my boss, the PAO as the “Pubic Affairs Officer”. I kept copies of that set of proof pages after we corrected the error and I put one of the proofs around the rest of the base paper for that week and gave him that copy when we got back to the office. It only took about a minute for him to howl in horror over the crap he would take over that mistake but was laughing at the joke after it was explained to him.

But willingly. They WANT the jackboots on their necks. Tax and spend liberal freedom haters don't get elected by accident. They're elected because they represent the view of the majority of the voters who elect them. This is GOA's rating of NY kongressthieves. Note the high number of "A" rated reps. Oh wait that's the high number of "F-" rated reps.

Brilliant! Put a sexual predator in charge of the one place with more young chicks that just about anywhere else in the world. He’s probably giving his wiener a constant workout just thinking about it.
