Democrats need Weiner

Weiner’s tweets are embarrassing. But they didn’t cost taxpayers a dime.

It is because Weiner has been such an effective opponent of GOP attacks on Social Security and Medicare that Republicans, and even some Democrats, want him to resign. Republicans can’t respond to his withering rebuttals that leave their “talking points” in ashes.

I can’t help but feel that some Democrats now urging Weiner to go feel a bit guilty they aren’t standing up for their party’s ideals the way he does.

Some pundits liken Weiner’s scandal to former New York Republican Rep. Chris Lee, who posed shirtless for an ad on Craigslist and quickly resigned.

Lee who? Comparing Lee and his legislative “career” to Weiner is like comparing a Hagerstown utility infielder to Albert Pujols.
