Janeane Garofalo: Hey, letís make Weiner mayor of New York
Hot Air ^ | June 11, 2011 | Allahpundit

Posted on 06/11/2011 7:51:11 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Yeah, why not? He’s completely untrustworthy, crippled by tragically poor judgment, willing to lie to an almost pathological extent to cover up his transgressions, and fully prepared to smear his political enemies if he thinks he can profit from it. He’s narcissistic, nasty, and yet somehow so insecure that showing him idle flattery on Twitter might earn you a photo of his nob. Oh, and by his own admission, he’s apparently unfit for work in the private sector. So then: Why not let him run the country’s biggest city? More power, not less. Because he is, after all, a fightin’ liberal, which clearly impresses sophisticated progressive Janeane Garofalo. He fights. He never really wins or achieves much by doing so — his weakness as a legislator is one of the reasons Democrats have been so willing to run him over — but he hates those wingnuts and isn’t shy about saying so, which is reason enough to let him govern America’s financial nerve center. Skip ahead to 3:00 and drink this in, bearing in mind that she’s hardly alone in her Weiner admiration, even now, among the lefty base.

She gets a smattering of applause from Maher’s audience too, of course, just as a reminder that there really is no idea so stupid that they won’t cheer for it. Exit quotation from an incisive Matt Lewis, who succeeds in perfectly, er, sizing Weiner up: “Being a political rock star isn’t what he does for a job — it’s who he is.”

He fights.

Yeah. I remember watching Megyn Kelly kick his @$$ all over TV one morning a few months ago. He needs to stick with his sicko "sexting" thing.

I honestly have not watched Maher’s show but I’ve read a lot about what has transpired there from time to time. Does anything good ever come out of that show?

Just say "Democrat"; it's quicker.

Bet she’d be singing a different tune if Weiner had sent one of his photos to one of her lezbo lovers.

Janeane Garalfalo can't sit on it. Tell me how your brand new Criminal Minds spin off turned out? Oh yeah, it was canceled because you are totally unwatchable you vile leftist POS.

Janeane, please, do us all a favor. Take a shower, clean that grimy sheen off your skin, perhaps treat yourself to a touch of Chanel No.5, then sit down and shut your gob. I find it difficult to believe this cow has ‘friends’ and that anyone really gives a gnat’s a** about what she thinks.

It shows that people who vote for democrats are idiots. And I mean that literally. You can’t reason with them. Their brains don’t function correctly.

She is just a media whore. She is so far down on the rung of the ‘A list’ they had to invent a new letter. She went past Z. And now she is screaming, ‘Look at me! Look at me! I say weird stuff!!’

She needs a job...

I wouldn’t be willing to bet against it. A couple of months in rehab, the MSM completely forgets the lying before I fessed up, and the incredible stupidity of the average New York city resident ... no I would not put any money against it.

"He’s completely untrustworthy, crippled by tragically poor judgment, willing to lie to an almost pathological extent to cover up his transgressions, and fully prepared to smear his political enemies if he thinks he can profit from it. He’s narcissistic, nasty,"

Weiner embodies the liberal mindset so well that he has a shot at he DNC presidential ticket one day.

Boy 2ndDiv. I am really enjoying your tag lines. Alexander Haig. Fantastic quote. He was a great guy and the left just hated him for no reason. He wore a suit better than anyone else and he is the reason I had my dad buy me double breasted suits with french cuff shirts in High School. Thanks for the memories. (Cuff links are a real pain in the ass to buy anymore.)

If Weiner were a Pubbie, Garofalo would be calling him a misogynist, a psycho, a pedophile, and a racist. ....and of course calling for his immediate ouster (at minimum).

What Dems are essentially saying is that they don’t have to have any morals, only Republicans do. Morals are for chumps say the Dems. Let’s see Obama go with that slogan next year, and see how well it plays in Peoria.

I worked for him in his presidential campaign as an advance man, fund-raiser, driver and guard. I used to love his white collars on a different color or striped shirt. Used to wear a lot of those when I wore suits. He and his wife were very classy people and super nice.

He meets all the qualifications: sleazy, corrupt liberal garbage.

He’d fit right in.

Dear Mr NoLibZone:

I have been trying to envision a memorial that would embody the liberal mindset, but I have had little success. In my frustration I resort to browsing Free Republic and Voila! Your post provides the perfect design for a Weiner Memorial Statue.

Central Park would be a perfect location to erect a Granite Weiner that would lasting inspiration to all the perverts and muggers who congregate there every night.

Of course the inscription would have to note that funding came from stimulus money provided by Barak Obama. And maybe a donation by Janeane Garofalo could be accepted on the condition that she back off from her Weiner for Mayor damands.

The picture on the right is older. She went from looking like the picture on the right (circa 2004) to the picture on the left (circa 2008). I will admit she was fairly attractive in the older picture. Nice curves. The later picture, bleh.
