Two polls out this week, while drawing modestly different pictures, demonstrate that former Rep. Anthony Weiner is going to be a big — maybe deciding — factor in this year’s mayoral election.

Obviously, this is a town where voters will put up with anything.

NYC also will allow sexual predators like Democrat Vito Lopez to again run for City Council in NYC (and for Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver to get clean away with paying hush money to keep the women harassed by Lopez quiet).

There are millions of them. But they’re sadly outnumbered by even more millions.

New York is in a stage or a phase. Probably happened to other cities like Sodom and Gomorrah.

Maybe some New Yorkers like to vote for people with lower moral character than themselves to make them feel good about their status.

No one condemns bad behavior any more. They want to be able to do the behavior themselves.

The worst most slanted polling outfit in the country .
It’s sad how the state run media peddles well known liars .

The author of this piece misses an important point. Anthony Weiner may be a "pervert," by the author's measure (and I would agree with him 100%). But he's running for elected office in a primary race where the front-runner is an oversized lesbian whose politics are identical to Weiner's.

Is Anthony Weiner any less of a "pervert" than Christine Quinn?

Honestly , who cares. New York is a crap hole and they
deserve a Weiner. All I ask is that they stay there.
It’s worth the transfer of wealth, through federal taxes,
from Texas to subsidies New York if they will just stay
there and not come here. They vote for the
clown-santa who promises a free ride and when it all falls
apart they move to the next green pasture and foul it up
and move on. Liberals are worthless and New York is full
of them.

American politics: The fix is in. Who is the worst possible person to put in office? Declare them the winner regardless of how the sheep vote.

“but I’d probably get slapped with a “cease and desist” order”

If you do, switch to “Would you like a little mustard on that?”

If that gets the “C&D” order, go with “No relish for Weiner”

And yes, I’d be grateful for a percentage of the millions you are going to rake in on these button slogans!

I think the "political" problem with the other contenders is that they are borough presidents or council members who don't have any appeal outside their own boroughs.

The truth is that the entire slate of Democratic contenders is that they're like the cast of characters in the Mos Eisley cantina scene in Star Wars. That's why Anthony Weiner is at least a serious contender in the race. Greedo may be a weird character, but compared to some guy with a giant white head and beady black eyes playing a flute in the cantina band he actually seems kinda normal.

I guess after Bloomberg they may want a mayor they don’t have to take seriously.
