Reid to Weiner: 'Call somebody else' mug.cnnpolitics By: CNN Political Unit

Washington (CNN) – Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid gave embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner no love on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

"I know Congressman Weiner and I wish there was some way I can defend him, but I can't. OK?" Reid said.

And then there was this exchange with reporters:

Q: You didn't say whether you thought Congressman Weiner should resign. Reid: I'm not here to defend Weiner. Q: What do you think he should do? Reid: That's all I'm going to say. Q: Senator Reid, what advice would you give him if he asked you?

Why would he call Reid anyway. He is in the House. Reid is in the Senate. The only folks who can help Weiner would be the House members.

A little testy there, aren't we Sen. Reid?

Don't be to hard on Sen. Reid. He's having a bad day.

Forgot to not look in the bathroom mirror this morning; been one thing after another ever since.

Sen. Reid...nice job with the responses. As we all know:

The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer people back to it.

If he needs another PR guy for advice, I hear you can get them pretty readily from the House staffers.

Harry's just upset 'cause nobody's sent him any penis pictures.

My guess is that there is an underaged girl involved..hence his disclaimer that he thought all were adults.

Harry refused to pull the Weiner out of the fire. Tells Weiner he'll have to pull it out himself. When the going gets tough, the rats get going.

The Democrats most affected (Hillary & Huma) will arrange a nice cushy job with (1) a cable News network or (2) a Wall Street investment firm with deep Democrat ties. It’ll be a do-nothing job that will nevertheless be well compensated and keep Rep. Weiner in the public eye in NYC.

Then, in a few years, they’ll trot him out to run for political office in NY against some weak RINO. He’ll win comfortably and (1) most people won’t remember this incident, while (2) the MSM will wink & chuckle that this is all confirmation that their world-view is correct (Laws & Morality are for Stupid People or Republicans).

Why would this chick say she KNEW he’d never send pics. My bet is she KNOWS he did send pics because he sent them to her. She was trying to get him to call her so she could blackmail his butt.

That was my first thought...then it occured to me that if he has photos of them then he might be in possesion of child porn? Things like that just don’t go away because you deleted them.....

He’s in the same dillema that every leftist gets in.

They can’t claim to accept or reject anything based on any moral standard, because that would invalidate their ideology,

yet they know that the majority of people in America do ascribe to a moral standard.

"I know Congressman Weiner and I wish there was some way I can defend him, but I can't. OK?" Reid said.

Come on, Harry, you can do better than that. Where's that good old Reid combative spirit? Do what you normally do. Ignore the issue at hand and simply lie or attack Republicans. How about:

Reporter: How would you defend Weiner?

Reid: I'd remid everyone that Republicans want to push grandma off the cliff with their Medicare plan, and they also want to starve children. That is much worse than sexting, isn't it?!?!?!!!?!

I hope he stays and drags the Rats down even further. Maybe the GOP gets a pickup in that God forsaken district if he’s foolish enough to run again.

My speculative theory is that Weiner sent Twitter photos to girls in order to take some of the heat off someone digging into his true salacious interest. ("See? I'm not what you thought I was. I like lots of girls! I'm a veritable Tiger Woods, baby!")
