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

Fantastic headline! Then again AS is part of us here at FR.
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?
Only in Japan...
Sounds like the basis for a new Merit Badge!
yes, Tiny Tony Wiener is still pounding away at earning that merit badge, it seems.....
Just, whatever ya do, don’t do what that schoolgirl said to Clinton that time and ask him what kind of underwear he has, because he *will* show you.
Thanks for the ping!
Nah. Too easy.
The Egyptian brotherhood strategized on how to invade America and got the tight-skirted Sphinx infiltrator Huma Abedin married to a truly up and coming politician. Now he has been branded for life as an up and coming politician. That might be enough to put him over the top in future elections, as well as erections.
If you run to the “left” of Quinn..you’d be in New Jersey..
