Without a doubt, Barack Obama's favorite thing in the entire world this week has been Democrat Congressman Anthony Weiner's weiner.
Because that's seemingly all the news media wants to talk about, despite the fact that every conceivable economic indicator went straight into the toilet this week. Home prices are falling, home sales collapsing, joblessness remains through the roof, the GDP is lifeless, consumer spending is down, and debt ceiling talks are at an impasse.
In fact, the only rising indicator in Washington DC appears to be in Anthony Weiner's jockey shorts.
Hope n' Change has found Mr. Weiner's "defense" to be spectacularly unconvincing, as he claims that some total stranger somehow hacked into his Twitter account to email a photo which the Congressman, after careful review, concedes may be of "Little Anthony." Moreover, rather than file a criminal complaint against the alleged hacker, Weiner's office is now calling the cops on reporters who ask questions about his Kodak moment.
Inspiringly, Congressman Weiner is now suddenly obsessed with working on the serious challenges facing America...for the first time in his career, as nearly as we can tell.
For that reason, Hope n' Change thinks that if we could get our hands on more pictures of Democrats in their fruit of the looms, our nation's legislation might look less like the fruit of the loons.
