I had a very busy day today in real time and I have just now watched the Weiner resignation. It is almost like watching something from Bizzaro World. Here is Weiner talking like he is some wounded champion who can no longer fight the good fight for the people. Please! If Weiner's top priority was his constituents and his family he never would have found the time to play Captain Hook Up on Twitter. If he was half as conscientious about his job as he claims, he never would have wasted everyone's time with all the lies and the sideshow of not resigning sooner.
I think what really happened is his wife came home and laid down the law. She probably asked him why the heck was he continuing to humiliate her by dragging this sordid saga out.
Think back to Chris Lee's fooling around on Craigslist. Basically he was doing the same thing as Weiner. However, Lee resigned ASAP and thus we can scarcely remember his name. Anthony Weiner on the other hand drew out the saga of Weinergate for almost a month. The result will be that Weiner will be a national joke for the rest of his life.
On a side note, did you check out that jeering? I loved it! Especially when that guy shouts out "bye-bye pervert". It was like a nice dose of reality in the middle of Bizzaro World. You can read more about the heckling at The Blaze.
I am a black conservative from a black conservative family. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and finally settled in New Jersey. Throughout my life I knew I did not share many of the common beliefs of other American blacks.
For starters, I never took to the term African-American. I have meet too many real Africans who are now Americans, to ever with a straight face say we share something in common other than skin tones. Their history and culture is truly a unique and is a completely different experience from my own. My culture is distinctly American, from the way I speak, think, dress and act and you know what else? I love it! So for me, I will always be an American who just happens to be black.
I put myself and my beliefs out here in cyberspace, to show my fellow blacks that there is something more. That one need not accept the false promise of the next social program, the belief in government as savior or the next Democratic candidate will right all wrongs. That true Hope and Change comes from belief in yourself, in a nation that allows dynamic movement if you are bold enough, smart enough and brave enough to make it happen.
