Weiner in the NY Times

Weiner’s lastest sexcapades have made even the NY Times.

What a loser. Why is this guy running for mayor if he still can’t keep himself from doing what got him in trouble the first time around? Is he stupid?

Doesn’t he know that you have to choose from only one of the following?

  • Indulge in weird sexual fetishes.
  • Run for public office.

And I’m not making any judgments as to which one is morally superior. I’m just saying that it’s a bad idea to do both.

  1. At this point, the issue is not the sex, its his character. He is obviously an inveterate liar and psychopath / sociopath. He is someone who feels comfortable with lying about anything including to his wife. The point is that someone of his character should not be in power. It has very little to do with sex, if anything.

      • The point is his reaction to being found out. Many people make mistakes and sin. Normal people feel ashamed or mortified when such things are made public. Weiner exhibits zero of such (normal) emotions. He is a careerist and a sociopath whose entire motivation is his own advancement. Granted this is true of many politians but it is exhibited (no pun intended) to a shocking degree in the person of Weiner.

      • I’m not sure about sociopath (aka antisocial). His lack of judgment borders on poor reality testing. I’m starting to think he’s certifiably nuts, maybe borderline or schizoidal. The compulsivity he’s exhibited is so severe he probably has OCD as well.

    • “I’m not sure about sociopath”

      I don’t think he’s a sociopath, either. Is there any evidence that he’s ever cheated on his wife outside of his online activities? This is probably his way of cheating without actually cheating; he probably wouldn’t be able to stand the guilt if he were really having sex with other women. I agree with AsianDude’s comment below. He sounds like your typical narcissist. I wouldn’t be surprised if he thinks he’s so attractive that this behavior is helping him win over female voters.

    Low future time orientation. Little impulse control. One would have to conclude such. He’s just glib.

    I feel sorry for his wife, though Hilary will find some way to capitalize off this.

  6. mayor bloomberg is like a demigod among men. it’s a sad state of affairs when a loser like weiner can even be a credible candidate for NYC mayor. you know it’s a low moment in your life when a website like “the dirty” (mentioned by NYT in their oped – a true sign of the times) can call you a “sexual predator” and be spot on in their analysis and facts.

    OT – i wonder if their marriage is really a sham. hollywood actors have marriages of convenience/publicity all the time. the saudis are not as stupid as you might think – and qatar has a pretty sophisticated intelligence operation. could a muslim woman stomach marrying a jewish guy, as long as he could keep her cover with the US secretary of state and the potential next president of the US. it’s not like she married anthony 10 years ago. wedding was 2010.

    alternative (simpler) explanation – weiner decided to make a move on huma so he could get closer to the clintons. he is like a dumber, less sophisticated version of bill.

    • The whole thing smells like an arrangement from both sides to me.

      Who knows what local connections Weiner has that Hillary needed. On top of that there were rumors about Huma being more than Hillary’s personal secretary, etc.

      This quieted all that talk and cemented an alliance.

      This, of course, assumes that Weiner had some NY Democratic machine pull – which I think is true.

      • Hillary Clinton profitted immensely from her husband’s cheating. Eveyone felt sorry for her after the Monica Lewinsky debacle, and she emerged as most sympathetic character. Bill Clinton was clearly no good, but the Republicans really burned themselves by becoming the sex police. In short, the only thing a lot of people could say was, “Poor Hillary!”

        I imagine the same thing could happen again for Huma. There were a lot of women I knew who wondered how a woman they saw as being so beautiful, accomplished and sophisticated could end up with such a vile creep as Weiner. We don’t live in Macbeth’s time, where a woman can only gain power through her husband: Huma can transmit public sympathy, especially from women, to make more ground in her career. I suppose she wilk be the one wearing the pants in her marriage.

  10. I just read that with this second woman (or third or fourth, who knows) Anthony again played that oh so subtle maneuver of emailing a picture of his penis. Given that this site is mostly devoted to explaining those things that seem inexplicable, could someone here offer an explanation for the emailed penis picture as a plausible courtship ritual? Do walruses do something similar? Some Asiatic tribe, perhaps? Where, pray tell, does a person come to the conclusion that emailing a photo of their penis will produce positive dating results? I’ve never met a person who advocated for the penis photo as a credible seduction device.

    • I, too, would like an explanation for the penis pic texting. Are women turned on by this peacocking, even if the penis is underwhelming? I think football player and family man Brett Favre texted a dick pic to a young woman and I remember thinking I would have kept that one under wrap.

      • It’s a bad move for a lot of reasons, but guys do it because they’re projecting — thinking that visual displays of genitals are as alluring to women as the are to themselves. Roissy has covered this game-killing behavior thoroughly.

        Dicks don’t photograph especially well, and mostly just look odd. Certainly not sexy. It’s not going to seal the deal, either. I’m sure Weiner’s sex chat partner finds it revolting and/or sad.

        But this is symptomatic of Weiner’s problem: he’s trying to reap the old-school rewards (and intrinsic motivation) of celebrity and power — sexual access to young women — in a modern environment that quasi-criminalizes such behavior. To wit: the website that exposed him is calling him a “sexual predator,” who is “luring his victims.” Absolutely absurd, particularly coming from thedirty.com.

        The conflict with his political ambitions is that, like David Patraeus, his desire to keep his infidelities secrete exposes him to potential blackmail — a vulnerability that has to be taken seriously. I suppose Weiner’s repeat exposure nullifies this to some extent, but I doubt he’s ballsy enough to play it in such a way.

        What disqualifies him in my eyes is that he’s apparently settling for masturbating to sex talk as a sort of “lesser sin” in place of an actual affair. The masculin ego is assuaged — indeed there are young women who would give it up to him, however, he’s not actually banging them. But in political terms, he’s paying the same price regardless, possibly worse.

        I’m sure that Elliot Spitzer could have trolled his socio-political circle for a young woman willing to be his mistress, but he knew that such women are easily spurned and oft vindictive, so he went the professional no-strings-attached route, as many many men do. He actually dealt with his nature in a fairly safe and discrete manner as prostitutes have a professional and legal obligation to discretion. He couldn’t have known the Feds were after his go-to escort service.

        In short, you have to make sure the counter party in every transaction — especially sexual transactions –has something to lose too. Weiner now has to leak her name to the press and put the focus on her. Let’s just hope she’s at least a 6.5.

      • I don’t believe that Weiner thinks that emailing a photo of his penis will lead to him having sex. He can’t be that stupid.

        I think that Weiner has some fetish which causes him to get very sexually excited when he imagines the girl at the other end looking at the photo.

      • “he’s not actually banging them”

        Wives might be desperate enough to believe that line but there’s no excuse for an objective viewer to fall for it. Without a doubt he’s been screwing at least some of these or other women. Or he’s not, because he’s telling the truth?

      • In all fairness to Brett Favre, the chick he sexted (Jen Sterger) is a younger, hotter replica of his fairly attractive wife. The resemblance is eerie. It must have turned him on (or turned back the clock).

      • “Dicks don’t photograph especially well, and mostly just look odd.”

        Weiner’s penis is larger than average and pretty photogenic. I’ve seen a lot of penises in my time and was surprised to see how small and weird looking most of them are. Six inches when erect is definitely not average, even for black guys, who really do tend to have larger penises than other racial groups. I’ve discussed this with a few female friends of mine and they usually have an “ewww” reaction to my suggestion that penis pictures should be a prerequisite to online dating. I mean, who wants to deal with most of these things? This was a mystery to me before I started reading Heartiste/Roissy. Women seem to value a man’s social alpha qualities much more than his in-bed alpha qualities.

      • It doesn’t matter how good things are now, it matters how much trama happened to his forming brain. Notice how lots of depression era kids remained ultra cheap or Ukranian immigrants of a certain age always make sure everyone has food (in a nation where obesity is a massive health issue) or that a huge swath of adult industry workers were molested? Many circumstances that affect a person in childhood/adolecense remain issues through adulthood no matter how much the circumstances change.

  13. I’m trying to imagine how Bill Clinton & JFK would have got on with cellphones back in the day 🙂 I’m not surprised that Weiner or anyone else would want to exchange ribald text messages with a younger woman. However, it does show an incredible lack of judgment given he had already been busted once.

  15. How are these New York politicians (Spitzer and Weiner) so stupid?

    If you are dying for some nookie on the quiet tip there’s much better, safer ways to acquire it. If you’re gonna show off your Weiner, at least let it be in person with some chick that you’re actually banging. Don’t risk your political career and marriage for some stupid outbound pictures of your member. And Spitzer should’ve known that those constant large $10k+ deposits/transactions would have attracted the attention of law enforcement, who would start monitoring him.

    There’s just incompetent horndogs. Bill Clinton was the ultimate performer at getting his clandestine creep on. Only the cynical smarts of fatass Linda Tripp could derail him.

    • Weiner obviously has some fetish in which he gets TURNED ON by the PROCESS of emailing the photo of his penis to a girl on the internet or by imagining the girls reaction upon receipt of the photo. Otherwise there’s no reason for him to do that.

      Sex with his Islamic wife apparently doesn’t give him the same thrill.

      • It’s very common for young attractive people (especially girls) to send people images of themselves. It’s a normal part of human sexuality to want to be desired just like it is to desire. It’s primarily feminists and their anti “sex object” crusade who say any differently.

        All of the people he sent images to engaged in flirtation with him. He wasn’t online flashing people, right?

      • “He wasn’t online flashing people, right?”

        My understanding is that he was. In the first scandal he’d do the reveal even if the conversation wasn’t sexual, and the birthday suit pics were sometimes used to initiate contact. I wonder if this was part of his courtship ritual with huma? Did he hound her for daily pictures of her heels?

  19. It’s my theory that Weiner married Huma for cover because in America, people will not vote a single man for an executive government position. I believe he copied Clinton’s playbook, right down to the have 1 kid and 1 kid only. If you pay attention to the timeline, they announced Huma’s pregnancy right after he got busted. At his age, he was doing roids not for lifting, but testosterone boosters to conceive. He had always planned on the mayor run; he just didnt think Twitter would ruin him.

    The porn star Ginger Lee (big Democratic/liberal supporter) claimed that Weiner kept contacting her through social media and turning the conversation towards sexual matters even though she told him repeatedly that she wanted to discuss politics only. She said he also sent her unsolicited photos of his member and tried to get her to exchange photos.

  22. On the flip side, assume for a moment he gets elected. Is anyone going to actually care about his policies? He can sell the Brooklyn Bridge to his cronies for $99, and if the newspapers find out, he just has to “get caught” sexting again, and nobody will care about any actual political malfeasance.

    Don’t believe me? Imagine how quickly most conservative media would drop all of the other Obama scandals if he got caught getting blowjobs from interns.

Of course he developed a weird relationship w/ hiis own weiner. I honestly feel sorry for the guy. Why his parents didn’t change their name, we’ll never know, but I wish they had for their son’s sake.
