Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) called on the White House on Monday to detail conversations it allegedly had with Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) to try to convince him to drop his Senate bid.

Weiner said that allegations that White House officials had offered Sestak an administration job in exchange for his dropping of his primary bid against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) had become a growing political liability.

Fake support by Oscar Meyer in order to make Sestak look clean and honest and victimized?

I don’t know whether it is fake support or not. Of course, expecting a truthful comment from der Leader or his gang is beyond the pale. Perhaps he is trying to make himself look good.

Yep, AND to somewhat distance himself from Obama, who is becoming an anvil around their necks.

Time for Glen Beck to eat another hot dog on TV. Maybe Rep Weiner could get Kobe Yashi or Joey Chestnut to be his spokesman...

Hmmm...

I can’t ever keep track.
Is the “independent prosecutor” in vogue or out?

Oh... wait!

I remember -
Republican admin - IN vogue
democRat admin - DEFINITELY OUT of vogue

My thought as well. Could this be the first real salvo in the “dump Obama” war to come?

What's the alternative? congressional committee hearings? I'm sure those will be unbiased. /sarc

Impeachable offenses have probably been committed by the kenyan.

He is just mad because the Jewish guy lost. He is also angry because he has come to the belated realization that Hussein Obama favors the Muslim fanatics over Israel. For all that, Weiner remains a worm. He joined the rest of the Party of Disloyalty in siding with the corrupt foreign boss Calderon over the beseiged and desperate people of Arizona.

I suspect that this is the beginning of a carefully scripted fake investigation that leads to complete innocence of everyone involved.

They have to do something.

Its fun watching the non-interest of the "mainstream" press over this actual federal crime and compare to it all the manufactured "scandals" like Valerie Plame and the firing of the federal prosecutors and Dick Cheney's "secret" energy meetings and Halliburton, and on and on.

PS, FYI: "Fair Game", the movie retelling of the Plame Affair premiered at Cannes over the weekend, but garnered no awards (sniff).

I think Weiner is a Clinton disciple.

It’s certainly a corrupt system at this point with all the Washington insiders doing everything they can to protect each other so they don’t lose their own personal power base.

ALL of the “journalists” on Morning Joe were giving EXCUSES for this!! If this had been Bush or Cheney, the indictments would be handed down...even according to Mika and Joe!!
