Democrats Pull The Plug At Sexting The Underage: Pelosi Calls On Weiner To Resign, As InTrade Offers Free Money

Tyler Durden's picture




 

After it became clear that one of the girls that soon to be former Congressman Wiener [sic] was texting is underage, not even Nancy Pelosi, who previously said it is perfectly ok in her esteemed opinion for Tony to represent the people of New York, she has now done an about face and is calling for the man heading Weinergate to resign. Expect Weiner [non sic] to tender his resignation over the next 48 hours.

From CNN:

The head of the Democratic National Committee is calling for the resignation of U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to inappropriate communications with women online.

"It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign," DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement Saturday. "The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner's continued service in Congress is untenable.

"This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House -- and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important -- his and his family's well-being."

And House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel have told Weiner he should resign, a Democratic source with knowledge of the conversations told CNN. Both released statements also demanding his resignation Saturday.

And a free money offer from InTrade:

I just want to run my mouth. This Weiner shit is perfect! Think Fibonacci levels you traders you. We have hit a 'retracement' of perversion and sickness. The political left has on full display waved their flag of 'our pants are down, now look at how diseased we are'.

Remove morality from the equation and this is what we get?

Thanks Bill, and I sure as hell hope that "hill" gets that world bank post. (demon).

Idiots.

Both sides have been sufficiently revealed. Craven, lustful for power abusers of trust. Trust stolen, not earned. They are Rapist. They have raped US.

They ought to be held responsible for the crimes they have committed against YOU and even more so against your wives and children. They sell your future, OUR future for the 'luxury' of the comfort they have now while in the 'club'.

RAPIST.

That is what they are. Don't mince words and feebly attempt to be kind and play the game; these monsters are literally raping your wife, your daughter, your sons. They are evil.

All that is required for evil to prevail is for a few good men to do nothing.

We need to DO something. Violence will come (unfortunately) but in the time before that we can still afford to be passive and resist in simple ways like just take 15 damn minutes and transfer your direct deposit to a credit union.

Stop putting $$$ into a traditional vehicle. Buy 'junk' silver instead.

Blah, Blah.

I'm done with my little rant. I wish more people would just go off. This shit is in your face and as plain as day.

Act NOW or wish you had?

Don't be that guy.

 

 

Justice will come. That is the next Fib level to be hit?

Right on!  It is time to either shut up and color or start filling the sandbags. And "when the violence comes"  it's to late to fill the bags!  Put your money into the tangibles and watch the big banks crumble.  Support your local credit unions and let the family and community come first.  

You owe nothing to this current government it has taken more than it has been owed, and pissed it all away on lies and false flags.  

Boogger eating afganies at your door?  NO!  Any al' kyda threaten your civil liberties? NO!  How about Somali pirates,  Libyan guard, PLO, Iraqi republican guard?  No! Huh!  

How about the mexican mafia members two doors down that the police refuse to go after until they commit a "real crime" or the ZETAS that janet Napalitano refuses to admit are running military esque. hits in the good old USA! Don't worry about them, some cock sucker from NYC is tying up all our media molesting 17 year olds via twitter!  Really!  

Just keep drinking the kool aid america or you can do your part and be true American and stand tall and claim your title as the greatest nation ever.  Or fall like Rome and pick your slave masters while you have a choice!

I think we should use the debt-ceiling as the excuse to stop paying these guys, then leave them in Congress and let them do whatever they want.  It would be like a petting zoo of scumbaggery.

The Weiner has a long way to go to stoop to the level of drowning a young lady in Chappaquiddick, spewing DNA an a young lady in the Oval Office or having a homo brothel in a DC condo.

Those scumbags got a pass, so cut the Weiner some slack for just a few lewd texts.

You're shadowboxing with your own stupidity, here.

Describing a reality does not convey the personal judgement about the "acceptability" or "unacceptability" of that reality. 

I don't feel strongly about the fact that Congress is a bunch of liars because I don't believe they're that important or relevant.  If you want to elevate their importance in your mind and get upset about what they are, that's your choice.

Has nothing to do with me or what I believe.

so, omitting any position on this is pretty much the same as not giving a shit. You do have a position as it's not part of humanity to not care about something they comment on. Otherwise, why comment? 

State your belief or it's no more different than being indifferent, which is much closer to acceptance than not. 

They should be the examples here, not the exceptions; and quite frankly I'm tired of people, who think they're special, propagating this understanding that their actions are irrelevant because of their "status" in society.

After having read through some of the sexting messages, i must saying the most disturbing part of this whole episode was absolutely not the sexual content (limited imagination, boring), it was the hero worship the Rep Wiener required from these girls.

He constantly refers to himself as a superhero "came back strong" "tights and cape". In response to a question about what he was doing he replied numerous times "saving my country from teabaggers/republicans". There are many more examples.

It actually made me sick to my stomach that this stick figure who clearly was unable to receive his hero worship from anyone who knows better, sought out this narcissistic ego feed, from a constant stream of young women.

This type of pathological narcissism, combined with his lying (for a week about the incident) and cheating, is exactly what the entitled kleptocratic class is all about. You decide if those character traits impact his ability to serve in Congress (perhaps it makes him ideal to serve ;))

Nice summary, Lizzy! 

I would add that the sort of narcissism that drives a man like him to allow himself to dominate the much-too-willing Corporate Media "News" does very much impact his ability to do his job.  In fact, he's been proving it.

Not to mention how it has taken all the heat off both Congress and Barry.  A viable man (regardless of how naively he might get his kicks) would leave for that reason alone.  Surely he feels some obligation to his values/cause?

Makes you wonder if the drawn out crash and burn process is a requirement of his severance package.  And who might be paying for it.

small potatos (potatoes?  Dan Quayle here?), but to suggest that he's not committed a crime by his actions is a stretch.

The messages were about the 17 year old girl wanting to become president. She asked him and he encouraged her to do so.

In short, perfectly appropriate.

While he was stupid and lied about a private matter, he has done nothing illegal, nor too our knowledge has he slept with someone not his wife while married.

I am not interested in his sex life, sexual fantasys, nor pictures of his penis. Those of you who are, are the ones with a problem.

I'm just trolling, and apparently a better reader.  You're the guy looking at the Weiner pics who called me a "homo."

The only people I've known who've used the word "homo" have been high-school kids and gays. 

I don't think you should be defensive about it, though, there's nothing wrong with it--homosexuality is a natural part of the world.  It's not the kind of thing most folks brag about on these boards, but when you don't have anything interesting to say about finance or politics, it's fine that it's the best you can do.  I like your confidence.  You go, girl!

Comparing Isaac Newton to the modern university/government scientist is ridiculous. They just don't make them like that anymore. I mean seriously. Here's a shocker for you Copernicus, I'm a scientist. I've seen the widespread fraud in modern science first hand. Isaac Newton never had to worry about getting preliminary results for an R01 or getting papers published for renewal which his salary and livelihood depended on. Go back 50 years before government domination of science funding and the quality of papers on average is a million times better. Now you are better off assuming the authors' are full of shit when reading something in Science for crying out loud. That is the way it is. Anyone that tells you differently either doesn't know or is in denial (most professors).

The difference is "Republicans" _pretend_ to have standards, while "Democrats" don't seem to have any. They are only throwing him under the bus now probably because of polling data or maybe some further dirt. Just a few days ago Whatsername was adamant that this affair was a "personal matter". Personally, am definitely not a prude though not a congress critter either. These guys are supposed to set the example.

If the neighborhood creep was caught texting the under-age daughter next door, he'd be taken out behind the woodshed.

I'm surprised the House Ethics Committee actually is apparently conducting themselves with that ethic in mind. Tax evasion, adultery, and lying about until confronted, those are all OK.

There was absolutely no sexual references in the texts to the 17 year old girl.  She was simply a girl who texted him, and he texted back.  Police interviews yesterday with the girl proved that no sexual conversations took place.

I know nobody worries about such things anymore, however one of the reasons that those holding office and similar positions of trust and responsibility were to be held to high standards of conduct is because of the possibility of blackmail and other national security concerns.

"Cannot fund an Intrade account with a U.S. card or account."

That's a downer, but they'll take a check. (There's a delay while it clears, though.)

"Anyway I would sell here since he will eventually resign but this little exercise may go on for another 2 weeks."

But the deadline on the Intrade bet is Sept. 30. (I just bet on it at 65.8%.)

I think he'll resign once leading Dems tell him he's hurting the party in the polls. He may be holding out now in hopes of motivating some bigshot Dem to find him a job-offer to tempt him to leave.

The popular image of dims is that they're more in tune with the European groove, but in this case they're staking it all on comparisons with the publicons.

If he's sexting underage girls, charge him I say.  Likewise for Foley, the legislative champion of sexually abused children everywhere, for hussling underage boys.  This ain't so hard.  Where's fucking Joe Law, anyway?

It's funny how sexual transgressions are taboo. But looting the tax payer for $Trillions is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

Right. But I was thinking about the movie Idiocracy with all this stuff going on. There are mechanisms that even our political class are subject to.

Specifically in that movie, the CEO of the monopoly corporation for everything, has an issue where he can not stop dumping Brawndo on the crops. He says look, there is nobody here to do it! The computers fired everybody when they decided we did not need people anymore. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy

In congress, and the agencies, people have to be able to maintain certain security clearances. As we are finding out more and more of these people can not hold the positions of trust to do things like kill really bad people, and investigate some of the other bad stuff that is going on. Junior congress critters to not get breifed on things like the Bin Laden spec ops.

So yeah it is a distraction, but what happens when there is nobody in government who can hold the clearances nessecary to run the government?
