Weinergate Funnies

As the controversy surrounding Rep. Anthony Weiner and the origin of a lewd picture sent from his Twitter account continues to make headlines, comedians are taking advantage of the  entire situation and pundits are writing witty commentaries about it.  In what has been dubbed as Weinergate, the congressman has declined to acknowledge that the picture is not a photo of him.  If not him, who is it?

In an article appearing in the Lifestyles section of the Washington times, writer Monica Hesse dispels the notion that women are attracted by such pictures.  "Weiner, or someone pretending to be Weiner, apparently assumed that women would enjoy seeing photos of bulging briefs via Twitter."

According to Hesse, Weiner is not the first man to consider photographing his nether region can be seductive.  She writes:

"Over the years, a handful of famous men — and a boatload full of unfamous, Craigslisty men — have landed in the news for sending women photos of their artfully framed packages. Brett Favre allegedly had a special delivery for Jenn Sterger, a sideline reporter for the New York Jets. Kanye West allegedly provided some of his female MySpace friends with some extra-friendly pictures. There are entire Web sites, aimed at men, teaching them the etiquette for public displays of private parts."

Where or how the saga of Mr. Weiner's "Twitter" will end is yet to be determined.  Attorneys have been retained, and there is even talk that Mr. Weiner's plans to run for mayor of New York City are being put on hold.  In a week when we have been bombarded with a series of disturbing news; the stock market's decline, unemployment numbers rising, and the economy not recovering as predicted, we needed something to make us smile.

Until the news of Weinergate broke, the representative was better known to us as the congressman who'd engaged Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in a rude and heated shouting match during a live interview.  His attitude during this particular situation has put him on the defensive, and he has been described as belligerent and arrogant. 

Political Cartoonists, beginning with our personal favorite, Michael Ramirez, have taken to their drawing boards with the story.  We hope you enjoy the following cartoons as much as we have.






                      






In Cartoonist's Daryl Cagle's Cartoon Web Log, he offers the following commentary: 


"It’s been an odd spectacle watching news coverage of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, as he fields questions about a lewd photograph that was sent from his Twitter account to a 21-year-old college student. Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked, but when asked directly whether the bulging boxers in question were his, Weiner said that he couldn’t say “with certitude” that it wasn’t."

"A politician with the last name Weiner unable to deny a lewd photo was him? That’s all cartoonists need to run away with the story."  "Here’s my take…"
