Andrew Breitbart Breaks Promise And Releases Weiner’s Full-On Cock Shot

Yesterday, “Matt Drudge’s bitch” Andrew Breitbart said “we will not be releasing all of the material [surrounding Representative Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal] because some of it is of an extreme, graphic nature.” And we said “one way or another, those photos will somehow find themselves online soon enough.” That day has come… and it is shamefully tasty.

Dan Savage live-blogged Weiner’s live press-conference on Monday in typical Savage style:

He says he’s not going to resign.

And why should he? Clinton didn’t, Craig didn’t, Vitter didn’t, Weiner shouldn’t.

Sometimes I hate reporters: “Why would you do this after you were married?” Um… because members of congress, like members of the press, get horny sometimes. And sometimes male members of congress, like male members of the press, think with their dicks. And sometimes men—married men—rub one out with an assist from the World Wide Web. Film at 11. Weiner was horny and went online and flirted and beat it a few times. He created his own porn, his own interactive porn, like millions of other Americans have done, and continue to do, every damn day. And the Internet provided Wiener with the same thing it provides for tens of millions of other men in monogamous relationships: needed release, safe variety…

A reporter asks if Weiner was drinking or using drugs—if he has a problem—because only a man who has a drinking problem or a drug problem could get caught up in something like this. Do reporters know what men are like? (And lots of women too?) This desire to pathologize behavior that isn’t sick—that is, indeed, very common and human and completely and instantly understandable—is itself pathological. Weiner does not have a problem. He has a computer. The whole world has Weiner’s problem: same old horniness, brand new box.

Cord Jefferson from GOOD said that journalists should stay out of the story since Weiner isn’t a “family values” hypocrit:

If you look at Weiner’s eight terms in office, not a single one has been bolstered by his commitment to “family values.” If anything, Weiner has made it his modus operandi to destroy pieces of legislation that would infringe on people’s civil rights, especially when it comes to issues of sexual orientation and gender. NARAL Pro-Choice America gave Weiner a 100 percent rating for his reproductive rights voting in 2006. He’s also voted no on a bill to ban gay adoptions and a constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage. For more than a decade, in fact, Weiner has said that LGBT people should have the right to get married outright, a stance he says he says is “noncontroversial” in his mind.

Compare Weiner’s legislative decisions to that of Senator David Vitter, who once equated gay marriage to natural disasters after he himself had visited numerous prostitutes. Or former Senator Larry Craig, who chastised the philandering Bill Clinton as being “a nasty, bad, naughty boy” but was later arrested for trying to have gay sex in an airport bathroom. If you try to legislate morality, you should probably be squeaky clean in your own affairs. If not, you’re not just lying to the public, as Weiner did, you’re also lying to yourself. You’re holding yourself to one standard while trying to pass laws that would hold the rest of the country to another. That’s much more dangerous than a legislator trying to cover up a sleazy Twitter exchange.

Today McSweeney’s also released “Fragments from Weiner! The Musical”, a show that includes the verse, “I have been struggling as of late/ deciding if it’s right or wrong/ To use these social network sites/ To send a picture of your schlong… Well, not even the schlong exposed!/ But inside boxer briefs and posed/ To look much larger than it is/ So gasping, they’ll say “Is that his?”
