Oh, Spirit Airlines. The company is advertising “The Weiner Sale” with “Fares TOO HARD to Resist.” I say they should only be able to advertise this way if they offer hot dogs as snacks on flights. Have you seen other companies cashing in on the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal? If so, send the ads my way. [BuzzFeed]

Wow, Cosmopolitan sure has a knack for featuring politicians in embarrassing interviews and photos before they made it big on the national stage. Not only did they snap Senator Scott Brown in the nude back in the day, they also apparently featured Anthony Weiner as one of their “101 Gorgeous Real Life Bachelors” in 1996. In the interview, he said, “I was born September 4, 1964—the same day ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand,’ by the Beatles, was released.” He also revealed what he wants in his future “First Lady.” “Someone smarter than me. I want to be sucked back into the the throes of love.” Hmmm, I think he better focus on sucking his wife back into the throes of love after it’s come to light that he sexted with six women, sending one the infamous photo of his bulge in gray boxer briefs.

I was a complete wallflower in high school and therefore did not earn enough — or any — attention from the yearbook staff to be given a senior superlative. But Gennette Cordova, one of the women linked to Rep. Anthony Weiner junk tweeting scandal, sure did. Freakishly accurate! What was your senior superlative (if you were cool enough to get one)?

UPDATE: Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted in a press conference today that he had sexual conversations over Facebook and sent scantily clad pics of his penis and his chest to numerous women, whom he thought were his “friends.” Weiner said he had inappropriate conversations with six women, some before his marriage began and some afterwards. Weiner claims he never met any of the women in person and didn’t have sex outside of marriage. His wife, Huma Abedin, who is the top aide to Hillary Clinton, was not beside him at the press conference, but Weiner said the couple has no plans to separate. His voice cracking, Weiner repeatedly apologized to his wife and his constituents, but said he has no intention of resigning. You can read quotes from Weiner’s press conference and watch it from the beginning at Talking Points Memo.
Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s weiner isn’t the only body part he may have photographed: today a shirtless pic of Anthony Weiner’s bare chest hit the web. As promised, conservative wonk Andrew Breitbart has been leaking saucy pics of the Democratic rep all day. Big Government posted one image this morning depicting Weiner, fully clothed, sitting next to his cats. He sent it from his AOL account along with the title, “Me and the pussys.” This newest pic of Weiner shirtless (above) makes us wonder, 1) does he wax and 2) are there more pics to come where he’s taking it all off?

In the wake of Weinergate, perhaps it would be an appropriate time to make a confession to the men of the world. Dick pics don’t really turn us on all that much. In the universe of nudie photos, bulges, hard-ons and the like don’t do the same thing for us that vaginas and boobs do for you. Sorry, to break the news, guys. We are turned on by the thought of you rubbing one out in our honor, but women are not as visual. We don’t need to see the evidence. According to an article in The Washington Post, a study found that dick pics do nothing for women, sexually speaking. Researchers found that men operate under the golden rule of sexting, “I think it’s hot, you should too.” But they are amiss in their logic. The kind of things that turn us on are way different. When women were polled about what kind of pics would get them all hot and bothered, some answers included a man folding laundry, a home cooked meal, and a guy’s alphabetized bookshelf. Um, yes. Sexy! After the jump, some pics you fellas out there could send us that would get you laid for sure. Keep reading »
In case you are not already acquainted, meet Anthony Weiner, a Democratic Congressman from New York. On Friday, a strange image appeared on his Twitter feed—a photo of a man’s crotch in a pair of underwear taken on a Blackberry. The image was addressed to a 21-year-old student in Seattle named Gennette Cordova (who says she never met the Congressman, though is a fan) but was visible to all Weiner’s followers. “I was pranked, I was hacked, I was punked,” Weiner explained when the press caught wind of the story. “Someone sent out the picture. I’m an easy name to make fun of, and I think that’s what happened .. I didn’t send that picture out. I can’t say with certitude [the picture isn't me]. Pictures can be manipulated.” Weiner explained that he had hired a private security firm to look into the hacking and where the photo came from. “We’re treating it as a prank, not treating it as a national security invasion or anything,” he said. He also said that hackers have attempted to access his Facebook and Twitter accounts before.
At first, Weiner seemed defensive here. But as yesterday wore on, he seemed to take a new tactic—making peen jokes. And he has gotten in some pretty good ones, which I guess shouldn’t be too surprising considering that the man has had the last name Weiner all his life. After the jump, his best jabs. Keep reading »
