I Loved Anthony Weiner

Now..not so much.

Yeah, I read the Facebook posts at Radar Online  and viewed the penis photo at Gawker  that Breitbart has on his phone.

And I was shaking my freaking head: I thought Rep. Weiner was fairly intelligent but truth is his obvious smarts are overwhelmed by a need to what? Display his penis, talk dirty on social media and participate in phone sex?

I wanted to believe that Rep. Weiner was telling it straight when he said his Twitter account had been hacked because I loved his passion for progressive politics and his sense of humour.  I still do: can his supporters separate the perv from the effective politician?

Maybe. Only the lies he told are hard to accept. Do the lies take away from his effectiveness as a politician? Are his online adventures best kept in the family: between Weiner and his wife?

I’m torn between losing Rep. Weiner’s voice and his obvious personal problems. Were Wiener a Republican would I be sitting on the fence? Would you?

Whatever: vastly disappointed.
