Great news from friends of Weiner: “There are a lot of offices where he can offer phenomenal service…”

posted at 7:21 pm on September 6, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

I don’t back down,” Anthony Weiner said defiantly earlier this week… after going completely berserk on a solitary heckler.

Quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City,” he insisted in an ad… as his name dropped sharply in the polls and his campaign began to crumble.

Not backing down and refusing to quit, when indicative of assertive righteousness, are all well and good — but “graceful exits” are clearly an unknown quantity to the one-man circus. Otherwise, he would have slipped obliquely out of sight a good long while ago — and apparently, he still might not intend to do so, even after the bloodbath the Democratic primary for NYC mayor next week is going to be for him. Via The Hill:

Bill Brandt, a close friend of Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, said Weiner’s campaign will clear the way for a future run for office.

“The truth of the matter is he’s been beaten up now for two months nonstop. When he does something for the future, it will be fair of him to say ‘asked and answered’” when reporters ask him about his personal life, said Brandt, who is also a long-time supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

“I’m pretty certain he’ll find his equilibrium and move forward from there. He is a quintessential New Yorker. When you talk about the politics of the city and the state, there are a lot of offices where he can offer phenomenal service,” he added. …

“I do believe he’ll stay in public service,” said Jim Sideris, a retired cop from Flushing, Queens, and one of Weiner’s most loyal volunteers. “I don’t believe he’ll ever back down. …

Weiner remains coy on whether he’ll run for office again, refusing to acknowledge his race for mayor has become a lost cause.

“I don’t imagine I’ll serve more than two terms so eventually I’ll have to return to something else,” he said. “Once you’ve been mayor, there’s no other job in politics that really adds up.”

Honestly, as absurd as it sounds, I almost wouldn’t even be surprised if he pressed on, maybe in some smaller race in the near-ish future. From whence he’d summon any amount of money and support after the degree to which he’s been so humiliatingly diminished, beats me — but given the level of egotistical delusion it’s currently taking for him to continue to convince himself that he’s fit for public office clearly knows no bounds.

It might clear away a future run, but a winning run? Doubtful.

I’m not buying Mr. Sideris’ assumption. Weiner’s not in public service. He’s in it for himself. Just another reason I now support term limits. Professional politicians offer nothing of value to the country.

EdmundBurke247 on September 6, 2013 at 7:26 PM

I’m sure his in-laws can get him a gig cleaning toilets in the muzzy bros offices.

Weiner should just shrivel away.

Don’t want to think what he’d do with the keys to the city.

TXUS on September 6, 2013 at 7:30 PM

He has to keep running to keep control of his campaign funds. If he retires it all goes back to the government. If he controls his campaign funds he can donate some of them to other politicians and voila “there are a lot of offices where he can offer phenomenal service” as they say. So if he keeps running he keeps his options opened.

These days they’re called Animal Rescue Officer and are issued a gun, taser, bullet proof vests and drive around in an armored car in teams. Getting kitty and Fido out of an abusive home is a lot harder than it used to be.

But not the Mayor Weiner Mobile.

He has a compulsive disorder. He will just go back to doing what he does best: sending dick pixs to young women. And who would employ him? Do you really want to have a guy who does that at work? And he will. I guess you could demand his smartphone but you know he would refuse to turn it over.

Doubtful, they probably want young meat in that industry….though he can probably pull off a ‘who’s yer daddy’ segment on some homemade amateur porn website :)..

He’d be the life of any office party!

Marcola on September 6, 2013 at 7:52 PM

Just think. When the election results are tallied, this fool will still have thousands of votes.

Thousands and thousands.

What the hell does that say about those voters?

BacaDog on September 6, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Service, huh?

You would think Huma would be entitled to an honor killing.

BL@KBIRD on September 6, 2013 at 8:07 PM

I hope these tools wear buttons that say, “I’m a Weiner supporter”. It is a matter of time before Huma divorces him – she is on a mission and Weiner is a loser… in more ways than one. Perhaps he can get on with Chippendales.

ghostwalker1 on September 6, 2013 at 8:13 PM

After the primary he’ll be out of the national spotlight, I pray!
He’ll try for local offices; city council seat etc.
Locally he’ll be a pain in the rear but this boil on the national butt will, I hope, be lanced.

Course with AP in NYC the Hot Gasers may well be subjected to Weiner unless Capt’n Ed bans Weiner news . . . . please Ed.

GO! And take that Fifth Column wife of yours with you, dirt bag.

teacherman on September 6, 2013 at 8:23 PM

Keep in mind that multiple felony convictions haven’t stopped Marion Barry. And being disbarred hasn’t even slowed Bill Clinton down noticeably.

Therefore, being a walking, talking d**k is unlikely to stop Weiner.

You can be sure of one thing; as long as he has that magic “D” next to his name, some “D”amned fools will vote for him.

This guy’s future HAS to be in public office. He has absolutely no shot at ever being employed in the private sector.

When he does something for the future, it will be fair of him to say ‘asked and answered’” when reporters ask him about his personal life,

His problem will be that between now and that day in the future Weiner’s addictions will lead him into new incidents of perversion.

He is an addict. He will fall off the wagon again and again.

So questions about his personal life will never be “asked and answered.”

slp on September 7, 2013 at 1:02 AM

And the amazing thing about this is that he continues to talk about his little problem as though it’s over, done, and will just recede into the dim past. “I made a mistake, but that’s behind me now” has been the mantra. The future’s so bright he’s gotta wear shades.

But really, there’s no reason to believe that he has any control over this behaviour at all, and in all likelihood fresh instances will continue to come to light. And each time, it’ll be treated as though there was no history, as though there were no predictions. Over and over. Lather, rinse, and repeat. It’s interesting to speculate that he may, in fact, have bottomed out already, and that there may actually be a floor below which it’s impossible for a Democrat popular figure to fall, no matter what he does.

He did sort of “enweiner” himself, didn’t he?

{^_^}

herself on September 7, 2013 at 3:31 AM

It’s not public service, it’s self-service. He’s not providing service to anyone but Anthony’s wiener…jerking off in public because it apparently gets him off.

He is the ultimate New York wanker.

The problem is that everyone knows what “equilibium” is for Weiner.
