Posted on 05/22/2013 11:47:22 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Anthony Weiners run for redemption is officially on.
The ex-congressman whose career imploded in a rash of raunchy tweets two years ago said in a YouTube video announcement late Tuesday that hes in the New York City mayoral race. Hed said last month he was considering it.
The Democrat is jumping into a crowded field for Septembers primary. Hes arriving with some significant advantages, including a $4.8 million campaign war chest, the possibility of more than $1 million more in public matching money, polls showing him ahead of all but one other Democratand no end of name recognition.

Weiner lets it all hang out.
Why not? The current one's certainly a dick.
It's not just his name that everyone in the country recognizes.
Great picture, looks like he was mentored by one of the best liars in politics.....
Can’t wait for the campaign video
“Stick a Weiner in Gracie Mansion”
You know what the tragic thing is? He’ll do a better job than Bloomberg. Hell, Marion Barry could.
Well, let's see, Bloomberg has the "no-soda for anyone" thing locked up.
I can't think of anything that does not end with "free hot dogs for all!"
I’d already rather live in Detroit where I can eat or drink what I want, smoke, and most important, legally defend myself.
A neighbor of mine visited relatives in Detroit the other day. He went out to dinner at a local restaurant and had an after dinner smoke right there at the table despite the law. The owner said he doesn’t care about any idiotic laws telling him how to run his business.
Weiner - In your face governance
This crud has no shame....Oh the complete arrogance of this man defies immagination! But then he knows how stupid the general public is or he wouldn’t even had attempted this.
How about “Weiner - Up for the Challenge!”
I think it’s going to be hard for Weiner to rise up.
wow, where did this come from? did this just spring up?
I gotta keep up the news more often.
Just goes to show you, any Tom, Dick or Harry can be come Mayor of NYC.
is Weiner the thrust of the article?....I dont want to plunge in, again and again on the these threads....because i walk away unsatisfied, sleepy and all sweaty
Replacing a D!CK with a Wiener
“, including a $4.8 million campaign war chest, the possibility of more than $1 million more in public matching money,....”
How much of that goes directly to the candidate? Is running for office a lucrative occupation?
If ya send him a contribution for his campaign,
Ya think he’ll maybe send you a picture?
Anthony Weiner to join the Sausage Party.
“Hey, Baby, I’ve got yer Big Gulp right here...”
Not necessarily. But once you get elected the first time, you can tap into all the special interests that you help out, and they are more than happy to donate to keep you in office.
Remember Weenie served 7 terms in congress, never got less than 59% of the vote, and didn't have to spend much on getting re-elected. Combine that with the "market crushing" stock market returns typically scored by Congress members, and you have some real dough.
Weiner: “I spit in the face of those who mock me”!!!
I know, that’s seriously crude!
His campaign song should be Led Zeppelin’s “Hot Dog.”
What I sensed from the commercial was that he wants everyone to forget about the photos of his willie.
He always reminds me of little birds with their mouths open waiting for mother bird to feed it...he’s a disgusting piece of crap imo...looks like a dang bird....and needs to be a jailbird for all his antics.
He was toppled from his throne and now wants it back....and the people are just stupid enough to give it to him.
his slogan! ELECT LITTLE DICK.....
ELECT LIMP DICK.......
DON’T SCREW WITH WEINER.......
You get the government you deserve, NYC. You get the government you deserve.
Huma says..... Where is the beef?
“How much of that goes directly to the candidate? Is running for office a lucrative occupation?”
They get to use it to put pals on the payroll for the campaign (easy to set up no-show jobs). I believe the “war chest” has to be used within a certain period of time or he forfeits it; it can be used for the same BS. Some people run for office for the temporary exposure, which then lets them sell books and such; others have to simply burn up the war chest. I don’t see this freak as having any chance, an NYC-area radio host was referring to him as “Anthony Pen!s”.
Unlikely. Bloomberg pushed through all sorts of bad precedent.
Remember Weiner’s support of the United States National Health Care Act (the move to give Medicare to all Americans regardless of their age)?
“Weiner takes hard task in hand!”
Good. Let’s see how full support of Muslim Brotherhood (his wife Huma Abedin’s whole family) and him being Jewish? will meld.
New York...New York
If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere...
Here’s to you... oh New York...
Keeping it interesting and parodying everything wrong in America, especially New York - thanks Anthony for the lighthearted satire of vested interests and self-referential, willful, callously oblivious, shockingly irresponsible protected political classes. Keep the laughs coming, we could sure use them right now.
Check his photo on drudge...left hand side...looks just like a bird!
This creep sees himself as a gift to woman.....Yulk! He’s anything but that!
Known for his outbursts and nasty demeaner....am not surprised he’s married to the woman he is....
Here he is sexting his face.
Weiner is Huma's beard...their marriage is an accommodation.
