Skip to comments.A Man Without a Tribe - Why Anthony Weiner will get beaten hard.

Anthony Weiner had it all. Had. And will never have again.
As a powerful progressive congressman who never had a serious election challenge before 2010, he was considered the heir to Senator Chuck Schumers throne. He also had an early lead for the 2013 mayoral electiona position he had been vying for since his 2005 defeat in the Democrat primary.
And with one tweet it was all gone. Despite Weiners ambition to rise again to become New Yorks mayor, the electoral and demographic math simply isnt there...
What Weiner and all the other non-Quinn candidates are hoping for is a run-off where they can run to the left of Quinn.
But is there support for Weiner to even place second? The once strong population of liberal New York City Jewish voters, which would have been a kingmaker for the lone Jewish candidate several decades ago, are no longer as relevant.
The Weiner campaign belongs to a different time. To paraphrase from Enoch Powell, Anthony Weiners career, like all political lives, will end in failure.

Never underestimate the stupidity of Democrat voters. Especially New York Democrat voters.
He is part of the Klintoon mafia and that makes anything possible.
Well, you know, elections that last more than four hours, you’re supposed to call a doctor...
Beating Weiner is something many live for, so I hear.
Muslim Brotherhood of his spouse has a decent mutual aid program, Weiner won’t go without weiners.
“The Weiner campaign belongs to a different time.” Yes.....of course......without a doubt.
Acht!! That’s the last time you’ll slap you Willie around.
For the headlines alone that his entry into the race will cause, he should be horsewhipped.
So in other words, even simpleton liberal New Yorkers don’t cast votes for known perverts.
“...deceased Mayor Ed Koch, and feminist icon Gloria Steinem have already endorsed Quinn.”
I know dead folks VOTE in these elections, but they’re now endorsing candidates too??
Funny way to write that. I assume he endorsed before he died.
Did. they. really. use. that. headline?!?!?
Please. His constituency does the same thing he did and has absolutely no issue with it. NONE.
He was willingly underbussed by the dems knowing full well he would be brought back later as the comeback kid. This served two purposes. First, it made the Dems look good to the resistant older dems who have some measure of the old concepts of decency (some, not much), and second, to have a living wellstone moment where this lion of liberalism redeems himself and America loves redemption stories.
Chuck U's the gift that keeps on giving, from formerly NRA A rated Gillibrand to the reprehensible Weiner!
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
I'll pick up that edition.
>>Did. they. really. use. that. headline?!?!?
Can we start a pool as to when the Weiner jokes hit the 1,000 mark? Or maybe 10,000?
honestly, Wiener seems irrelevant except he gives headline writers a chance to print stories like this one, “Wiener will get Beat hard!”
I guess everybody still has a little of the 12 year old in him?
