Skip to comments.Weiner Clams Up, Has Hard Time at Press Conference
Posted on 05/31/2011 11:58:28 AM PDT by ImJustAnotherOkie
Friday night Anthony Weiner, Democrat from New York City and Client Number Nines successor in the House, had a problem on Twitter. His account, @RepWeiner, had posted on it a rather inappropriate message.
The Twitter post and the image on YFrog have since been deleted. To attempt to be delicate about it, the linked photo (posted under Weiners YFrog account) was of a man in in somewhat tight-fitting underwear, with just that area of his body visible. Big Government has the photo if you want to judge for yourself.

Hard time.... Ha. Weiner?
He had trouble performing.
LOL they said hard LOL..no wonder the guy is such a commie lover..can you imagine him in high school being teased by all the other kids “Hey your such a weiner” LOL
Did he click a pic and tweet it?
Weiner Has Hard Time at Press Conference...lol
If you can’t stand the heat, get off of the weiner grill.
Will it stand up in court?
Boy! Talk about jokes taking on a life of their own! LOL
We won't know until the judge examines his briefs.
Tomorrow he will tell everyone to “take a deep breath”.
Divorce in 6-8 months.

This jackass is guilty and everyone knows it...
LOL these jokes never get old LOL
You mean he didn’t shoot off his mouth like always?.................
Here’s the smoking, err, gun in all this twitter mess:
On Twitter, famous people tend to have tens of thousands to millions of followers but they themselves follow only a fraction of that amount.
Rep. Weiner is a man of national prominence, a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently on TV, a past and likely future candidate for mayor. He knows and is known by thousands of movers, shakers, members of the press and politicians on the city, state and national levels.
Yet, as of yesterday, he was following fewer than 200 others and, with all those famous folks to choose from, one of the few he followed was Cordova, a 21-year-old college student who lives nearly 3,000 miles away in Bellingham,Wash.
Run that though your head for a second and at the same time remember two important facts about Twitter:
1. If two people follow each other on Twitter, they can send private messages unseen by others.
2. The difference between a direct message, seen by only the recipient, and a public tweet, seen by the world, is a single character.
The biggest problem for Weiner and his defenders on the left is not bloggers from the right. Its the details of #weinergate can be understood by millions of ordinary people in 140 characters or less.
Maybe the questioning will scare him straight!
