Today’s guest post by the one, the only, Will Durst:

THANKSGIVING 2013

Ahh. Thanksgiving. Best Holiday Ever! Love it all. The fact that a national holiday falls not on a Monday but a Thursday. How wacky is that? A regular Thursday in dead solid center fall. Where the weather could be 80 and sunny or 20 and snowing. Or, in certain parts of the Midwest, both.

Love the fact that its all about food, family, friends and football. 4 of the 5 Fs. Remain seriously amused by the winking obsessive conspiracy that binds an entire nation together concerning the specifics of the ritual burning of a large flightless bird. Free range. Brine. Air chill. To stuff or not to stuff. Seriously, is that the question?

You’d have to be a third stage tertiary Grinch not to love a parade featuring 80-foot helium filled balloons. Snoopy bouncing off a light pole. Ending with the season’s first appearance of the corpulent bearded one in the scarlet suit.

Don’t forget the silly creeping madness of Black Friday, which now begins early Thursday and threatens to encompass the entire week. People camping out for days. To save, what… six bucks? But for those tented hours, they are adventurous pioneers. Marvel Super Consumers.

And love the way that though this pageant of greed and gluttony lasts 4 whole days, when all is said and done, even amidst the drunken family brawling, sometimes moments for reflection can still be found. And you can bet that this round- headed political comic has much to be thankful for. Among them being:

--The 113th Congress, which has the unique ability to make hysterical lunacy seem so ordinary.
--Barack Obama for finally making the Presidency mock-worthy again.
--Sarah Palin who refuses to shut up no matter how tightly irrelevancy embraces her.
--Vice President Joe Biden for gaining immeasurable respect just by shutting up.
--The Cheney family who apparently feel about each other the same way the rest of us do.
--Ted Cruz for not only grabbing the national right- wing nut job baton from Michele Bachmann but waving it high.
--Pope Benedict for his inability to hide a scowl whenever Pope Francis does… anything.
--Chris Christie for so generously providing such a large target rich environment.
--The Tea Party for waving their arms in the air like they just don’t care.
--Alec Baldwin for truly embodying the phrase… “he who lives by the sword, dies swallowing the sword.”
--Mitt Romney for disappearing so completely, we’re left to wonder if he really ever existed at all.
--John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell for their strict adherence to the musical advice, “don’t go changing.”
--ObamaCare because who can’t appreciate a website rollout that “could have gone smoother.” An anvil studded with titanium spikes could have rolled smoother.
--Walter White for altering the calculus of what it means to go out on your own terms.
--The NRA and the NSA for just being themselves.
--Anthony Weiner for his series of continuing comebacks. May he experience many more.
--Rob Ford for proving that California is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.
--The GOP, waging an internal war for it’s very soul. GOP Soul. Short book. Put it on the shelf right next to Barack Obama Leadership Skills. Paula Deen at the Apollo.
--Vladimir Putin for proving that Toronto is not the source of all political wackiness in the world.

VIDEO: Weiner v. Hannity aka Baby v. Infant

kids fighting

Anthony Weiner, if you didn't want to be on Fox, then you shouldn't have accepted their eleventy-third offer. And if you've been even semi-conscious for the past decade and had some idea of the lunacy you'd be up against, then maybe you'd have realized what a colossal waste of time this was.

Seriously, when Sean Hannity spends a good part of the first four minutes of an eight minute segment asking if the rumors are true that Weiner "hates me," what's the point?

And when Weiner asks, "What am I, a potted plant?" then it doesn't take a mental giant to see that the interview is going straight downhill from there...

...including the part where Hannity deluded himself into thinking he had the upper hand by taunting:

"You're auditioning for MSNBC. You want Chris Matthews job! I can tell! You want to ask the questions! You wanna be Chris Matthews! You never shut up like Chris Matthews, either!"

neener nanner tv

To which Weiner retorted as any self-respecting toddler would:

"YOU always have patsies on!... Fox apparently has much lower standards!"

That little back and forth took up most of the final four minutes.

Moral of the story: Don't go on Fox unless you're prepared to be insulted, baited, and dismissed as nothing more than a novelty act. And if you still insist on crossing onto Hannity's turf, then don't stoop to his infantile behavior.

So if you are able, if you are so inclined, please donate. I'm currently using a just barely hanging on 10 y/o CRT monitor that is about to keel over. Gotta have the monitor to get the posts up! Site maintenance, and every day expenses add up and we can't do this without your help.

Thank you ahead of time for your consistent kindness and generosity. Without you, there would be no us.

PhotOH! Dep't. of Class Acts: Anthony Weiner ends campaign (and career) by flipping off reporter

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

stay classy

anthony weiner flips off reporterLink

Yesterday I posted a video of the most cringe-worthy interview in recent memory. That bizarre interview was conducted by Lawrence O'Donnell who managed to make his subject, Anthony Weiner, seem almost sympathetic.

Almost.

It was the perfect cap to an increasingly embarrassing series of increasingly creepy examples of Weiner's increasingly bizarre behavior.

Or so I thought. Leave it to Gracious Anthony to utterly demolish an already classless image.

Via The Hill:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) ended his campaign for New York City mayor by giving a reporter the middle finger through his car window Tuesday night.

Weiner was caught on camera gesturing at local NBC reporter Shimon Prokupecz, who had been covering the candidate’s primary Election Day watch party.

VIDEO: Make it stop! The most cringe-worthy interview in recent memory

make it stop smaller

Lawrence O'Donnell:

Anthony, I think there is something wrong with you.

And that concludes another in-depth interview with Anthony Weiner.

Did you see The Last Word last night? If not, please... Watch. The. Video.

That had to be the most worthless excuse for a conversation I've ever seen on a cable Tee Vee "news" show, with the exception of any given Sarah Palin Moment, of course. It had no value whatsoever, unless you consider humiliation a plus.

When I heard Lawrence repeatedly tease his Anthony Weiner segment, all I could ask was, "Why? Why was he invited on? He has no chance to win the mayoral race, he's a laughingstock, and nobody cares."

No, seriously, nobody cares.

I watch The Last Word nearly every night, and there are peaks and valleys, as there are on every show, but this particular segment... Seriously?

Pseudo, unintentionally comedic psychobabble trying to mimic analysis, followed by endless, self-indulgent rants intended to get ratings but accomplishing literally nothing else...

Seriously?

Not so much as allowing Weiner to answer a question? No, check that. Not so much as posing a question...

Seriously??

Interminable accusations, smackdown after smackdown, out and out bullying...

Seriously??

Lawrence sounded insane and Weiner sounded like an asshole. Or vice versa. Or both. Yet I somehow found myself rooting for Weiner. Now that's an accomplishment.

And after enduring seven minutes of meaningless, unproductive badgering, I never did find out who Weiner was lobbying for. That is, if he ever was a lobbyist.

Here's the superfluous, nearly as cringe-worthy online sequel that for some unknown reason, Weiner agreed to partake in. If you ignore it, I applaud you:

Weiner:

Bigger guys than you have tried to knock me down.

O'Donnell:

The ever-delusional Anthony Weiner.

UPDATED VIDEO: Includes racist remark about Huma Abedin. Anthony Weiner explodes at voter.

weiner vs voter nyc

This is the original post. The updated and corrected version is below.

Weiner must really want to lose this election, because he has gone out of his way, repeatedly, to shout down and/or belittle voters who dare to challenge his infamous Carlos Danger Moments.

This video was shot by a correspondent for Yeshiva World News at a bakery in Brooklyn:

The Hill has the story:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) berated a Jewish constituent on Wednesday after the man accused him of being a "deviant" and said he should not be running in New York's mayoral race.

The tense shouting match occurred as polls show Weiner's campaign floundering less than a week before the Sept. 10 Democratic primary election.

Well, I guess if there's nothing left to lose...

Here are some highlights:

Voter:

“You’re a bad example for the people."

"You’re behavior is deviant. It’s not normal behavior.”

“How could you do this to your wife?”

Weiner:

“You’re a perfect person? You’re my judge?”

“What rabbi told you that you’re my judge?”

“By the way, I have fought very hard for this community and have delivered more than you will in your entire life."

This particular "clever" comeback by Weiner got my attention:

"Where do you get the morality to judge me?"

Seriously, Carlos?

UPDATE and CORRECTION! I was unaware of the segment that was missing in which the voter made a vile, racist comment. My apologies!

Voter to Weiner:

"Married to an Arab..."

Via Global Grind:

Turns out Anthony Weiner wasn’t just screaming at a Jewish voter in NYC because the dude thought he was disgusting. According to this video, which his camp posted on Vimeo, the voter was upset with Weiner because he married an Arab woman, Huma Abedin.
