    Weiner Announces Candidacy for Mayor in Video



    This should be an interesting race.Who is running that's more qualified?


    <Anthony D. Weiner, once a rising star of New York politics whose career cratered over revelations of his sexually explicit life online, announced an improbable bid on Wednesday for the job he has long coveted: mayor.>


    <Although his tenure in Congress has often been derided as unproductive, in the video Mr. Weiner says he won money to hire police officers in the city, fought for assistance for first responders to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and helped win the battle to pass a health insurance overhaul. >


    <But Mr. Weiner’s raw talents, as a tireless political tactician and verbal jouster, are hard to discount, making him a formidable opponent even in light of his troubles.>


    <His political philosophy has always been something of an anomaly in the city’s more liberal Democratic world. He has called for a single-payer health care system and pushed for hybrid taxis even as he has proposed tax cuts and voted for the war in Iraq.>

    Both cheated on their wives, and are scum for it, but Weiner was texting seductive bare-chested photos of himself to girls on the internet.

    Does that sound like the mayor of New York......LOL?

    Never mind, it probably does.

    By golly, I think you're on to something.

    Let the placards read, "56K Weiner: How bad could it be?"

    If Anthony Sausage is the most qualified person in New York to serve as Mayor, what an indictment of New York City politics.

    Let's not forget, Anthony Sausage's wife was pregnant at the time.
