"Weinergate" -- Forget Gunwalker, THIS is the kind of scandal the media LIVES for.
Schumer protege Anthony Weiner with his wife, Hillary protegee Huma Abedin.
Was it, or was it not, Weiner's wiener?
Congressman Weiner, a long-time protege of Charlie Schumer, is alleged to have sent a Washington state co-ed (self-described as a "progressive" and "humanitarian in the making") a picture of his underwear-clad but obviously tumescent wiener on Twitter.
Weiner claims it was a hack, the girl says she's never been to DC or New York to meet Weiner, but the media, unlike the Gunwalker scandal, is all over this. From the lefty Village Voice to the Washington Post and Associated Press to the London Daily Mail, the media is all atwitter about Weiner's wiener tweet. (Say that five times fast.)
I suppose that the Gunwalker scandal would be more popular with the press if it involved the ATF-sanctioned cross-border smuggling of powerful semi-automatic lithium battery-operated dildos to the notorious Mexican Spanish Fly cartels.
