Just when you thought Weinergate was going to fade away, along comes President Obama who all but guarantees A. Weiner will be back in politics as soon as he "comes to grips with his little personal problem!"
It was obvious with his televised remarks at the Weiner Wake, that Obama came to praise Weiner, not to bury him, thereby leaving the door open for a return for the now unemployable ex congressman to make a big comeback.
Now that the embarrassment is gone, and safely out of the way in the run up to the 2012 election, praise continues to ooze from the lips of liberal talk show hosts, and some of his fellow democrat office holders.
Among the terms now being thrown around in the build up to the BIG COMEBACK, are
'loyal, effective, pragmatic, dedicated, a man of the people, hard working, beloved, passionate, and detail orientated."
What's not being said, at least in public are "narcissistic, self absorbed, socially inept,
infantile, insecure, know it all," and a diva known for his tantrums in front of any microphone or TV camera.
A day after his resignation under pressure, his new life is already mapped out by Pundits who say he's in line for a $500,000 lobbying job, replacing his $164,000 taxpayer funded congressional seat, a lucrative chair as a talk show host for MSNBC, unless he joins Al Gore's or Oprah's new network to gain experience, although wags said he's already quite
proficient on how to puff up his persona in front of a camera.
He's already received offers to be a spokesman for an internet Swinging Site, and now Hustler Magazine chief Larry Flynt has offered him a '20% raise' to take charge of his internet marketing arm.
Surely, an appearance on the View, Piers Morgan, and Saturday Night Live can not be far behind.
And then there's over $4m in his campaign coffers to run for mayor of NYC, and another million or so for his 2012 cpngressional re election campaign. Pundits are not ruling out he will relaunch himself for his old office in 2012 since 56% of his constituents say they ardently support him saying, "Anthony is the complete package we love!"
Meanwhile, there is no longer a mention of checking into rehab, as he and wife Huma were off to the Hamptons to vacation, and according to Weiner's new PR and Marketing Agent,
"straighten out a few things between them."
Only In America!
