Janeane Garofalo: Hey, let’s make Weiner mayor of New York

posted at 7:15 pm on June 11, 2011 by Allahpundit

Yeah, why not? He’s completely untrustworthy, crippled by tragically poor judgment, willing to lie to an almost pathological extent to cover up his transgressions, and fully prepared to smear his political enemies if he thinks he can profit from it. He’s narcissistic, nasty, and yet somehow so insecure that showing him idle flattery on Twitter might earn you a photo of his nob. Oh, and by his own admission, he’s apparently unfit for work in the private sector. So then: Why not let him run the country’s biggest city? More power, not less. Because he is, after all, a fightin’ liberal, which clearly impresses sophisticated progressive Janeane Garofalo. He fights. He never really wins or achieves much by doing so — his weakness as a legislator is one of the reasons Democrats have been so willing to run him over — but he hates those wingnuts and isn’t shy about saying so, which is reason enough to let him govern America’s financial nerve center. Skip ahead to 3:00 and drink this in, bearing in mind that she’s hardly alone in her Weiner admiration, even now, among the lefty base.

She gets a smattering of applause from Maher’s audience too, of course, just as a reminder that there really is no idea so stupid that they won’t cheer for it. Exit quotation from an incisive Matt Lewis, who succeeds in perfectly, er, sizing Weiner up: “Being a political rock star isn’t what he does for a job — it’s who he is.”

What a b*tch.

Sorry. That’s harsh. But it really is how I feel about her. She’s a complete scumbag.

nukemhill on June 11, 2011 at 7:18 PM

Just one of the boys.

OldEnglish on June 11, 2011 at 7:18 PM

Doseny New York Cith already have a mayor who is a weiner?

VegasRick on June 11, 2011 at 7:18 PM

Sorry Allah, I just remembered I don’t click on his links.

csdeven on June 11, 2011 at 7:18 PM

This is the face of liberal women. Case closed.

carbon_footprint on June 11, 2011 at 7:19 PM

Probably the only Weiner she likes.

Oh good….the “Skank Contingency” weighs in!

I think this is why she likes him. It would be like voting for herself.

Kataklysmic on June 11, 2011 at 7:21 PM

She really should be at the end of a rope tied to a man with an organ grinder, collecting coins from the peasants. Oh wait… she’s too short.

afotia on June 11, 2011 at 7:22 PM

So the non-Oscar winning Janeane
wants the next Mayor of NY
to be a Wiener

Electrongod on June 11, 2011 at 7:22 PM

what could go wrong?

ted c on June 11, 2011 at 7:23 PM

Tim_CA on June 11, 2011 at 7:24 PM

Gawd, She’s Brill-Yunt.

I got a better idea.
Weiner goes away.

TimBuk3 on June 11, 2011 at 7:25 PM

She has nothing upstairs.

boomer on June 11, 2011 at 7:27 PM

Skip ahead to 3:00

You can embed a YouTube video so that it starts at a specified time instead of asking readers to skip ahead: for example, this will start the video at that very point:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW-dKAojwR4&#t=180s

with #t=180s telling the video to start at 3 minutes (180 seconds) in.

whatcat on June 11, 2011 at 7:30 PM

No clicky clicky, Maher and Godawfulho would give me syphilis just from listening to them.

Seriously, this is the best that Maher can do, a C-List, washed-up, human ashtray that couldn’t get picked out of a one woman line up? Well….Maher isn’t exactly prime time material himself so I guess it’s a wash.

I might as well query the young kid that bags my groceries, I would probably get better political insight than gutter snipe Jeneane could offer.

Bishop on June 11, 2011 at 7:31 PM

Weiner as NYC mayor? Great idea Janeane! Every time we call City Hall we can “talk dirty” the switchboard operators.

MaiDee on June 11, 2011 at 7:32 PM

Make her a deal! We make Wiener the Mayor but she has to service him every day. Next sentence out of her mouth, “Hang the Bastard!”

Old Dog on June 11, 2011 at 7:34 PM

She’s sorta’ less attractive and less charming Joy Behar, I’d say.

If that is even possible in this crazy world of ours.

SteveMG on June 11, 2011 at 7:35 PM

Maher’s audience morons…..ask Christopher Hitchens.

Dr Evil on June 11, 2011 at 7:37 PM

Next you will be hearing that the Heinz family along with Obama’s 57 states will come together and invite the Wiener to the New York Friars’ Club.

Electrongod on June 11, 2011 at 7:38 PM

Oh piss off Janeane!

mizflame98 on June 11, 2011 at 7:39 PM

Hey, Janeane, please take a long walk on a short pier. The cold water couldn’t hurt, one way or another.

Love This!

Tim_CA on June 11, 2011 at 7:43 PM

Just a sampling of just how stupid liberals are.

New Yorkers would love a pedophile as their mayor? God help us all. What’s next? Pedophile rights? Whose children will be sacrificed to appease their nauseating desires?

This country is going to hell, and liberals are leading the way.

capejasmine on June 11, 2011 at 7:43 PM

You know.. once upon a time liberal comedians actually used to be funny.

Illinidiva on June 11, 2011 at 7:45 PM

Where does the USA get these people such as Janeane Garofalo?!?..*facepalm*..:)

Dire Straits on June 11, 2011 at 7:46 PM

She might be the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen and I mean that in every sense of the word.

Janeane Garofalo: Hey, let’s make Weiner mayor of New York

Hope you showered off after you went slumming Allah.

canditaylor68 on June 11, 2011 at 7:49 PM

Monica Lewinsky is also endorsing Anthony for mayor. “Who needs a cigar when you got a Weiner?”

MaiDee on June 11, 2011 at 7:49 PM

Think of how much entertainment Weiner has provided in the last two weeks – I for one am all for Mayor Weiner, but I don’t live in or visit NYC. So there’s that.

Tim_CA on June 11, 2011 at 7:50 PM

Works for me…(parts of)NYC elected him to Congress so let them suck it up (maybe I shouldn’t use this expression) with his as the Mayor.

Dingbat63 on June 11, 2011 at 7:50 PM

He’s completely untrustworthy, crippled by tragically poor judgment, willing to lie to an almost pathological extent to cover up his transgressions, and fully prepared to smear his political enemies if he thinks he can profit from it.

So what’s your point?

davo on June 11, 2011 at 7:51 PM

I wonder if they tape Maher’s and Stewart’s show before the same moronic audience. They applaud and cheer at anything.

50sGuy on June 11, 2011 at 7:54 PM

I have a Liberal friend who loves this b!tch. I think he’s thinking with his Weiner.

Is mentally defective politically correct? No rational person want someone like Weiner in a position of authority do they?

dogsoldier on June 11, 2011 at 7:58 PM

He’s officially a leftist hero now.

In the long run, this whole affair will do him well. There are only two places in America that admire a man for this sort of thing… SF and NYC.

mankai on June 11, 2011 at 7:59 PM

Whose children will be sacrificed to appease their nauseating desires?

capejasmine on June 11, 2011 at 7:43 PM

Obviously not theirs since they have been sacrificed on the high alter of abortion. I think that leaves yours or mine. I am a bitter clinger hope you are to.

chemman on June 11, 2011 at 8:00 PM

I understand she auditioned for the latest remake of The Adams Family but lost the part of Cousin It.

No talent.

I can see her bitterness.but what does she cling to?

One does coke, the other vodka, but both will say anything to get attention.

I agree with Ms. Garofalo and Mr. Maher.

They are my betters, and despite being smarter and wealthier than I, they want to look out for me and save me from myself.

I have only gratitude and appreciation for them.

Long may they rule!

Bruno Strozek on June 11, 2011 at 8:06 PM

You know she’s really just mad because her show was cancelled. And I am one of those who INTENTIONALLY changed the channel when it came on. I absolutely refuse to give this woman the time of day. I guess we speak with our silent and respectful, yet forceful, actions.

Sorry Janny, sucks to be you sometimes.

Yellowdog12 on June 11, 2011 at 8:06 PM

Unbelievable- it’s not Weiner’s fault it’s the Republicans?

Each time I hear another liberal feeling sorry for him, talking about what a good man he is or that everyone makes mistakes, I think about his wife, Huma.

What about her? Forget about what we are told she’s telling her husband. What this man did you his wife is reprehenisble. He knew that he was an out-spoken, political figure from a very populous state. He knew that if he were to get caught, there’d be no way to hide it. Regardless of his beautiful, innocent wife, his family, his collegues and his constituents, he did what he did anyway. Pig. For any one to give him a pass for what his big fat ego told him was his right, I say, “You disgust me.”
