• Ever Wonder How Anthony Weiner Will Teach His Son About Sex? Well, So Does He

    There’s an interesting read over at The Politico, titled Anthony Weiner: Done With Politics, Not Life. Even though there’s likely a million things that you’d rather be doing with your time than checking in on the status of the disgraced former congressman and mayoral hopeful, you have to admit that he’s still an interesting case study.

    The “thrust” (pun intended) of this interview was a discussion about Big Anthony raising his Little Weiner, Jordan, who is about to turn 3-years old. While it doesn’t seem like the most fascinating of subjects to tackle when questioning this particular specimen, Politico revealed the reason why:

    Two subjects remained firmly off limits: the role of Weiner’s wife’s in a possible Hillary Clinton presidential bid — and whether he’s still messaging women.

    In other words, the two most interesting things anyone would possibly want to discuss as they relate to The Weiner were taken off the table. It’s rather telling that he refused to discuss whether he’s “still messaging women.” I’ll take that as a “yes” then.

    When you’re a politician, maybe you have a right to ask me that stuff,” Anthony explained. “Now, you don’t have a right to ask me about that stuff — or, not that you don’t have a right, you have a right to ask me and I have a right to say, ‘I’m not going to tell you.’

    Wow, that’s convenient.

    As for his former job in Washington (which he refers to as a “little hokey town”), the 50-year old Weiner said, “Realistically, my political career is probably over.”

    “Probably”? Heh. I guess “absolutely” isn’t in his vocabulary. Not that I’d expect it to be.

    The only job I ever wanted more than Congress was mayor, and I don’t think that either of those two jobs are going to be available,” Anthony explained. “So, no, it’s not like, ‘OK, how do I get back in?’ I’m not thinking that anymore. I think I kind of took my stab at that.”

    …among the many other things he took a “stab” at, of course.

    After some exposition about the restaurant he plans to open, Weiner was eventually asked about the inevitable conversations he’ll have to have with Jordan about sex someday…and what it will be like when his son discovers daddy’s public foibles on Wikipedia and beyond. “I know that if people can walk up to me on the street and say, ‘Thank you’ for something or say, ‘We love ya, run again!’ or ‘I voted for you,’ I am quite confident that my son will have the ability to look at the totality of the experiences he has with his father and the record that I’ve got and judge me appropriately,” The Weiner proclaimed. Pretty wishful thinking for a guy who got busted for his cyber-sex addiction not once but TWICE.

    Maybe, you know, it teaches him a little something about adversity and everything doesn’t go great all the time … I got the birds and the bees I gotta worry about.”

    It’s at this precise moment that you should all praise your lucky stars “Carlos Danger” is not your father. Apart from the obvious reasons why, I’d imagine that “birds and the bees” talk would be a fate worse than death.
