Barbara Walters: If Palin ‘can ride around on her bus,’ Weiner can stay in Congress
daily caller ^ | 6/6/11 | jeff poor

Posted on 06/06/2011 1:57:15 PM PDT by Nachum

As revelations about a possible scandal plaguing Rep. Anthony Weiner continue surface, the Democratic New York congressman continues to have defenders:

On Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” co-host Barbara Walters went to bat for Weiner and proposed that the picture in question was intended for his wife and not for whom it was sent.

“First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture,” Walters said. “This is my theory – this doesn’t mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who a lot of us know, who the chief of staff to Hillary Clinton and she travels a lot. And it may be that he took that picture and sent it to his wife to say this is how much I miss you. That’s possible.”

That drew laughter from even “The View” co-host Joy Behar, a staunch liberal whose politics fall in line with Weiner’s. However, Walters also defended Weiner by attacking former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. She argued if Palin can make a bus tour and be considered viable for the presidency, then Weiner can get away with this and continue to be a sitting congressman.

What does Palin riding around on her bus have to do with Weiner? Is this really how Babba Wawa wants to end her career, as one of the commie propaganda hacks?

She must be taking tranquilizers about now - after Weiner’s admission of guilt.

Mentioning Sarah and Stick-man in the same sentence is blasphemy.

How does a warped mind like BaBa Walters connect a subject like Weiner taking pictures of his crotch and Palin riding on a bus in in any way related.

The liberal mind connects dots that logical, reasonable humans don’t connect.

The liberal mind is a terrible thing.

Does Baba have Alzheimer’s or something? Her “view” is certainly skewed. As a woman, you would think she would be frightenly angry at Weiner for what he did to his wife. Instead, she tries to cover for him. Libs are truly mentally challenged when it comes to morals and right and wrong.

Of course - slaps head - why didn’t the rest of us notice how comparable riding on a bus and sending pics of ones junk to young women was?

Well, that there is just another example of why people like BaWa are better than the rest of us.

I wonder what Barbra will say after she hears what Weiner is saying now at his press conference. The Weiner has a mental problem. He needs help and should resign, but he says he won't.

After three decades of keeping mum, Barbara Walters now says she had a past affair with married U.S. Senator Edward Brooke, whom she remembers as "exciting" and "brilliant."

OMG what a knuclehead.

Weiner admits he was cranking his weiner and Walters equates that with Palin going on a bus tour?

The presstitutes are losing their minds~!!

They are NOT USED TO not getting their way. As little as 5 or 10 years ago they would have swept this under the rug and no one would have heard of it.

They were even powerful enough to get Obama elected- but I think that was THE LAST STRAW~!

People realize they HAVE BEEN HAD by the liberal media and Obama was the biggest insult yet.

First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture...


Not that anymore proof is required that the main stream media is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, but even for them this is stretching it.

The media has spent every waking moment trying to find something, anything on Sarah Palin (and making stuff up when they can't, but let a liberal Democrat do something truly weird they rush to defend him. Not only that, when his own excuses are too unbelievable for them to defend, they try to make up excuses.

I will not even comment on her lame attempt to bring Sarah Palin into this mess.

Hey Barb! Wiener is a congressman who is being paid by the tax payers. Palin is a private citizen. Makes no difference to you thought, right.
