Daily Caller editorial board endorses Anthony Weiner for mayor
The Daily Caller ^ | September 9, 2013 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 09/09/2013 9:40:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Anthony Weiner, the People’s Choice

Mr. Weiner, the former congressman, offers voters more than a decade of accomplishments in his fight for the city’s middle class and those struggling to make it. Blessed with a beautiful wife, natural charisma, the friendship of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and a sack full of policy ideas, Mr. Weiner is clearly the hardest candidate in the race for his opponents to beat off.

The Daily Caller joins many across the city of New York in kneeling to endorse Mr. Weiner in Tuesday’s Democratic mayoral primary.

Mr. Weiner is not without stiff competition. Mr. de Blasio, the city’s public advocate, has run a spirited campaign appealing to a demographic that largely stopped following politics after the imprisonment of Lyndon LaRouche. His campaign emblem, the trademark de Blasio “hammer and sickle,” can be found displayed proudly in the underrepresented barrios, jam-band concerts, and UFO conventions that Mr. Bloomberg’s administration attracted bad vibes for ignoring.

Ms. Quinn, endorsed by both Mr. Bloomberg and the New York Times, is the undisputed champion of the waste-management industry, the tomato sauce manufacturers, and the adult entertainment nightclub owners....

Mr. Weiner is always in (Carlos) Danger from his challengers. He has stiffened his resolve and will make sure to show this stiffened resolve to any who want to test it.

After all, Danger is his middle name.

. . . . Mr. Weiner is clearly the hardest candidate in the race for his opponents to beat off.

Considering his sexting scandals, they might have wanted to re-word this.

“Considering his sexting scandals, they might have wanted to re-word this.”

I’m sure they worked very hard to come up with that wording.

I think you’re missing the whole point of the article.

If you continue reading you’ll see other efforts pointing in the same general direction.

“The Daily Caller joins many across the city of New York in kneeling to endorse Mr. Weiner”

“Mr. Weiner is not without stiff competition.”

“Only Mr. Weiner’s tech-savvy campaign throbs through its veins with populist sentiment. The former congressman lasted even when his competitors told him to finish early. His moderate leadership will offer the city protection. Unlike past mayors, he will reach around the table to deal with both parties, rather than passing reforms through the back door. This man is firm in his beliefs, and he is not afraid to sweat. When he unloads his policy ideas, people swallow. The voters of New York are swallowing his message whole.”

I’ll stop there.... I think you probably get it now.

It’s junk like this that make me refuse to take Tucker Carlson and his crappy outlet seriously. Is this a news organization or a college paper? I guess it doesn’t matter, shitty satire doesn’t work for either

I think it’s funny. Running an alinsky right in their face. Laughing at them is a weapon. And weiner deserves it if anyone does.

Two points: First, satire is supposed to be funny and not solely consist of dumb penis oriented double entendre; and second, anyone wishing to be taken seriously as a journalist has to act like they mean it. This fails both as satire and as journalism, exactly what I’ve grown to expect from Tucker and Co.

Weiner is a certifiable jackass poling at 7%. He would be a footnote if people let him, but the Daily Caller has to fumble for the lowest hanging fruit there is. Stupid.

One weiner replacing the current weiner. Sounds right. Plus, he will get votes from the “hard” left. Wish they’d get a grip.

Anthony Weiner was a democrat congressman from NY.

He resigned after photographing his penis and sending it to several women he wanted to “date” while in office.

You may make up your own mind about what that summary says about democrats, democrat politicians, new york voters, new your political reporters, mainstream reporters, and the general quality of those who Obama wants to work with.

I think you are onto something. This can be taken a step further. There are so many laughable inadequacies in this administration, it is time to use the Alinsky tactics against them and beat them at their own game. Pun intended.
I can’t count the number of times Robert Gibbs, and now Jay Carney feign amusement at questions from conservative reporters. Time to start mocking.

It could be the NEW TREND for low information voters.

Elect the silliest, most inadequate candidate and then enjoy the show as a result.

Same as watching your weekly situation comedies and reality shows now on TV.

I hope NY elects Weiner. I could use some GOOD COMEDY ENTERTAINMENT without all the commercial breaks.

“This fails both as satire and as journalism, exactly what I’ve grown to expect from Tucker and Co”

First I think you must have little to no sense of humor and no appreciation at all for the fine art of satire. Second, the Daily Caller has broken more news that the mainstream media has not than most internet news organizations. Third, I happen to really like Tucker Carlson, who in my opiniion is an excellent spokesman for the conservative cause, is extremely intelligent, has a good sense of humor, and is eager to pursue breaking news and breaks a lot of it himself through the Daily Caller.

He is also an excellent family man with four children and loves his wife. He also loves dogs, animals in general, loves to fish, is pro-gun and loves the great outdoors. What’s not to like? kCheck him out on Fox & Friends Weekend, as he is one of the co-hosts. I think you know very little about Tucker Carlson. I think your analysis of Tucker and Co. is dead wrong and has no value.

You're right, I do. I previously stopped reading after the part about his opponents beating off. I should have read further, but I'm really over Anthony and his Weiner.

Thanks for setting me straight.

No, I defended my comment before some other FReepers pointed out that, had I read the article further, I would have seen the rest of the double entendre's. So, it was my bad.

However, in my defense, I am fairly sick of both Anthony AND his weiner and didn't want to read anymore than I did. I was just curious why anyone would endorse this pervert for anything other than a prison cell with a guy named "Ben Dover"!!
