The Anthony Weiner escapades have been front and center since he came out of the men are pigs closet two days ago and admitted what we all knew, he was lying and is a pig…I added the “was a pig” part. But here is the thing, most of the left is trying to defend this guy or downplay this as just between him and his wife, all but one person and that’s Ed Schultz.
I’ve lit Ed up over his vitriol in the past but will admit I’m a fan. He can get a little ahead of himself with the angst and it comes out like it did a couple weeks ago. However, this guy stands on very, very principled ground when it comes to being consistent about political figures behaving badly. He called for many political figures to step down as he has here with Weiner Sausage and I admire that about Ed. He is also taking some heat from the kookville lefties that want to just dismiss this, turn it into some history lesson on when XYZ did this in 19ABC, or worse of all just say men behaving badly is acceptable if they do a “good job”..i.e. Lawrence ODonnell from the same network.
I applaud Ed for being the strong voice over at the Obama network for calling this like it is and verbally kicking Weiner right in his…..well, his Weiner! The real issue here is the damage Weiner did to so many lives by his selfish and arrogant behavior. Now besides the obvious damage to his wife, the young girls, and a porn star he is just killing the Democrats with this. As an admitted conservative I must say that even I can’t take joy in that knowing the victims here in this mess. It’s time for Weiner to go today and props to Ed Schultz for calling this 100% correct.
Ed, I’ll light you up again I’m sure about an issue but stand with you on principle and your courage of convictions. As a union kid from the mills of Northwest Indiana I have a soft side for you and must say you’re the only guy over there on MSNBC I don’t turn off because of cowardice in broadcasting. Till we joust again….bonum certamen certa!
