Well, he’s definitely ready for his future MSNBC gig.
Anthony Weiner’s clownish run for mayor ended like a three-ring circus last night, as he admitted to a crushing defeat at a campaign party that ended with him flipping the bird at a reporter.
“I have to say we had the best ideas, but sadly, I was the incorrect messenger,” said Weiner, who got only 4.9 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary.
He had the best ideas? Nothing like a little humility on his way out the door. Frankly, that 4.9% must have been gratuitous gag votes. Curiously, his wife was nowhere to be found, but will probably soon surface at her divorce lawyer’s office.
One person who didn’t show up was Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, who sources said was in the Hamptons.
We’re surprised she wasn’t at Hillary Clinton’s side as she picked up another undeserved award last night.
A small group of protesters gathered near the site, some shouting, “Hands off Syria.” Others carried signs that read, “Benghazi,” a reference to Wednesday’s one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. Some conservatives have criticized Clinton’s handling of the incident.
Only some conservatives? Really? We wonder if this AP “reporter” even knows the names of those four Americans.
