A Man Without a Tribe - Why Anthony Weiner will get beaten hard.
American Spectator ^ | 6.3.13 | Ryan James Girdusky

Posted on 06/03/2013 5:22:43 PM PDT by neverdem

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 Schumer’s throne. He also had an early lead for the 2013 mayoral election–a position he had been vying for since his 2005 defeat in the Democrat primary.

And with one tweet it was all gone. Despite Weiner’s ambition to rise again to become New York’s mayor, the electoral and demographic math simply isn’t there...

--snip--

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 Weiner’s career, like all political lives, will end in failure.

Never underestimate the stupidity of Democrat voters. Especially New York Democrat voters.

Beating Weiner is something many live for, so I hear.

For the headlines alone that his entry into the race will cause, he should be horsewhipped.

“...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.

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.

You know soon that the post will lead with "Quinn beats Weiner" or worse.

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?

If articles this early in the race are any indication, Weiner’s going to have to work real hard to stay up in the polls.

As opposed to getting beaten soft?

No way I'm gonna believe the author wrote that line unintentionally.

I think the women voters will be disappointed if he peaks too soon.

Wonder if he has a doctor working on his campaign?

Of course, his opponent could run an ad about how “If you think about voting for Weiner for more that 4 hours, seek medical help immediately.”

If he gets a money raft he’ll do much better than this article suggests. May not win, but will place or show.

Weiner doesn’t have a tribe? Maybe he can join Paleface Lizzy Warren’s tribe. I think she belongs to the Whitefeet tribe.

So, some believe that Christine Quinn is going to “choke” weiner’s chicken? Is it not possible, that with the advent of viagra, Weiner may just rise again?
