Weiner explodes over sexting questions


Anthony Weiner, running for mayor in New York, got into a shouting match at a stump speech in an exchange over his sexting scandal.  The entire exchange is interesting and if you are an outsider to this election (not a New York Democrat), humorous.


I recommend you reads the whole thing, but here's an excerpt;
Mr. Weiner interrupted, shouting over Mr. Strauss. “I’m gonna tell you something! Here’s what I recommend you do, if that’s your question, that’s your concern, here’s what I recommend you do: I recommend you say to them, ‘You know what? We have a lot of voices in the Democratic Party,’” he said, arguing that all ideas should be considered, no matter where they come from. “Ideas matter!”

He went on to say that, regardless, he was going to win.

“I’m going to win this election, OK, and I’m gonna govern this city really well,” he declared. “If you don’t think I should even be standing here today, I certainly would respect that. I mean, you’re supporting another candidate who’s not gonna win.”

Talking to reporters after his appearance, Mr. Weiner was still on fire.
I just couldn't resist posting this. The opportunities for locker room humor and a bit of schadenfreude are too numerous to ignore.
