Newsflash: Dumb politician cheats on wife, behaves inappropriately, lies about it, gets busted anyway

Weinergate erupts.

Idiot.  I don't know how anyone in the public eye these days thinks they can do this kind of stupid crap and not get busted, and history has proven time and time again that getting busted and trying to cover it up never works and in fact makes it significantly worse.  Now we're in the "ok I did it but I'm not resigning" phase.  Next up: resignation and a divorce.

Also, the hacking story?  Weak.  Easily disproved.  I have to say that this is a massive disappointment.  I count on our elected leaders to be much better liars than this.

Only upside I can think of is that now the mainstream media has to address Weinergate as a legitimate story of wrongdoing and not as a non-story fueled by crackpot right-wing extremists.  So thank you for that, Rep. Weiner.

6/7/11 Update: Just when I thought this story couldn't get any better...Weiner's wedding was officiated by Bill Clinton.  Seriously.  Who in their right mind has one of history's most notorious philanderers marry them?
