'Cubicle guy' behind Weiner captivates Internet
Yahoo News ^ | 24 Jul 2013 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 07/24/2013 7:37:17 AM PDT by mandaladon

Anthony Weiner found himself in a familiar position Wednesday — standing in front of the cameras at a hastily called press conference, asking for the public's forgiveness after another sexting scandal.

But the mayoral candidate and his sexting pseudonym, Carlos Danger, weren't the only things trending on social media during Weiner's latest mea culpa. A "mystery" man who emerged from a cubicle behind Weiner during the press conference quickly became a Twitter sensation. The identity of the "mystery cubicle guy" — initially thought to be a Weiner staffer — was debated on Twitter as the embattled candidate and his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, spoke.

It turns out the presser-bombing "cubicle guy" is Jeff McKinney, a reporter for New York's WOR radio, who had no idea he was stealing Weiner's spotlight and becoming a viral sensation in the process.

"'Cubicle guy' had no idea that he was 'cubicle guy,''" McKinney, referring to himself, said in an interview with Minnesota's WCCO radio, where he used to work. "'Cubicle guy' was just there. He was taking notes. He was standing behind Anthony Weiner, because that was the only available spot to him, because 'cubicle guy' was late to the news conference."

McKinney added: “I didn’t realize I was becoming famous as I stood there, taking notes and doing whatever I was doing.”

Star (and crescent) crossed lovers. Why doesn't Weener show her his cucumber?

The muslim isn't bad looking but Weener looks like a weasel who needs a hair cut.

I wonder if Huma keeps a Kosher kitchen?

We already knew The Weenie himself is a perverted idiot.

But what is wrong with Huma?

She is supposed to be smart, yet she lets herself be dragged in front of the cameras to be disgraced on national TV as her husband admits for the second time that he was involved in nasty sexual texting.

...later, the press will praise her for her devotion and that will help Hillary.

Indeed, and if a conservative woman stands by her man in a similar situation, boy howdy, would the reporting be different as she is scourged for being a placemat, being walked over by her philandering man. . .

Huma needs the beard, Weiner needs a “standby me” woman.

Nice going Anthony-—dragging your wife out as a political prop. How’d that work out for ex Sen-Gary Hart?

Acolytes of Satan are running America.

Those two adepts are rising to the helm of NYC.

Sometimes to often, I think Weiner is subconsciously trying to save himself from what has him by doing what he's been caught doing.

These are animals we’re talking about. “Dragging the wife out” is expected. This is a marriage based on power and money. “Love” does not enter into it. Just like the Clintons, the Kennedys, the Kerrys, etc.

Politics. "Standing by him" earns her sympathy and other votes of confidence. It's all about power with these people.

What’s wrong with Huma? Same thing that’s wrong with Hillary. Co-dependency to get to-and stay at-the top of the political heap.

He is suffering from a form of cancer that has rotted away his mainframe. He is fixated on that cucumber he shoves in his shorts to impress young girls. Well, it’s either a cucumber or Huma’s dildo.

Weener mis-pronounces his name.

If it is truly spelled Weiner, then it should be pronounced Winer.

When you have cable and can't find something good to watch. You get depressed.
When you get depressed you get into politics.
After you get into politics you run for Congress.
When you get in Congress you think you have power.
When you think you have power you start waiving your "Weiner" around.
Don't waive your "Weiner" around.

Her political associations got $8B for her Muslim Brotherhood/Sisterhood back in Egypt. People, especially women, do things for money—world’s oldest profession. Her alternative, when she’s not lying to Westerners, is to wear a burqa, have her genitals clipped, have a 35-year old husband that paid two goats for her when she was 10, never go out in public without him and have to follow three steps behind her man until he dies. $8B! She knows she’s top of her class(lessness), whether he pix or porks sweet young things or not.

There's a perv who's screen name's Carlos Danger.
To everyone he Tweets he stays a stranger.
With every sext he makes, another chance he takes.
Odds are he will be elected Mayor.
