Whither Weiner's Weeny?

David Seaton's News Links
Weiner's New Yorker cover
Asked how he would explain the incidents to his son, Weiner said "First of all, the kid's going to grow up in Gracie Mansion. So I'm going to say, 'Kid, don't complain.'" Huffington Post
The saga of Anthony Weiner is beyond caricature. What redeeming feature does this poor creature possess that anybody should be obliged to read about him, much less be asked to vote for him to take possession of  one of the United State's most important elective offices? The Democratic party letting him run in their mayoral primary reminds me of when the Roman Emperor Caligula made his horse, Incitatus, a senator.
America has always had a wacky side and the world has always been packed with creeps exposing themselves, but what really worries me is that there are people in New York -- supposedly the world's most important city -- who were willing to vote for this guy and there were people donating money to fund his run.
What ever happened to "a decent respect to the opinions of mankind"?
Or is this just New York City's way of flipping the world the bird? DS
