Separated at Mirth?

Okay, a former government official who wears pants.
Some women just seem to make a pattern of forming relationships with unsavory characters who can't be trusted. Such is certainly the case with Hillary's right hand woman Huma Abedin, who has just announced her separation from husband Anthony Weiner, whose right hand is usually someplace we'd rather not talk about.

Weiner was caught sexting for the umpteenth time, but hit a new personal low (as far as we know) by sending his cyber-slut girlfriend pictures of a tentpole in his BVDs taken while Weiner's infant son was snuggling against him in bed. And yes, we just threw up in our mouths a little.

What puzzles us is why Hillary hasn't advised Huma to simply issue a statement that her husband is  the victim of a vast Right wing conspiracy?  Then again, when Hillary originally made that preposterous statement, she still needed her husband to have a shot at reaching the White House.

The infinitely ambitious Huma doesn't, which is why she is now free to just enjoy the Weiner roast.

Sometimes, words just aren't enough.
On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry opined that "perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn't cover (terrorism) quite as much. People wouldn't know what's going on."

And of course by "people," he means voters - who really shouldn't know what's going on if it will hurt Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming president.

Then again, maybe the media really would do us all a service by cutting off stories dedicated to desperate attention seekers. After all, that's how we got Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter, the Video Music Awards, and Kim Kardashian's ass.

Which would be the biggest ass on public view if John Kerry didn't hold the title.

Hey, don't blame us for the cartoon above - Gene Wilder wrote the joke for the grave scene in the incomparably wonderful "Young Frankenstein" and we thought it appropriately inappropriate to use it to remember his genius.

We were huge fans of Wilder, who seemed equally able to portray roles serious or comedic, gentle or frenzied. There was no one else like him, and we're grateful that this fine man left us with such a wonderful body of work at a time when laughter seems hard to come by. He will be greatly missed.

Oh, the Huma man-ity!

Regarding the late Gene Wilder, my cousin in Australia reminded me of the rainstorm, thunder and lightning scene in the Frisco kid movie.

Fred Ciampi said...

Ah, yes, the politicians would be quite happy if there were no news reported other than what they wanted known. Then they would be called, 'dare I say it? Yes, dare, dare', commies. Or something equally as terrible. And I watched Blazing Saddles last night and will watch Young Frankenstein tonight. Or is it Fronkenstien? Gene left us with a wonderful legacy.

john, john, (who spent 4 months in Viet Nam) just because you do not know what is going on does not mean we do not know.
Of course as voters without security briefings it is more important that we know what's going on than the fricken Secretary of State? ( how did we ever reach this state?)
john do you really think the muzzies trust and do not know a Czech Jew with a fake Irish name? Your grandfather is rolling in his grave. Do you really think the Arabs haven't googled you? That somehow by selling your Jewish roots down the drain that you will be the only one muzzscum like? That they don't hate you and play you like the buffoon you are?
john you are fake as your Irish name and your awards for self inflicted wounds.
An with a slobbering media willing to help in anyway possible you still blow it?
Heaven help us.

I miss Gene but also miss Marty Feldman too. Mel Brooks (a WWII vet? yes he was) was blessed with some of the finest actors/ talent ever to grace a set.
A case where "they just don't make em like that anymore" truly fits.
Sad to get the verification that an era has passed and that we now live in a damned near humorless period of the PC monster.

Thanks Doc for fighting that monster.

If I want to know what's not going on, I'll watch CNN.

Chuck Baker said...

Watched Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles yesterday. Today I have The Adventure Of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother on my schedule. Gene Wilder left a legacy that will continue to entertain for generations!

Kitty said...

Simply sublime, Stilton. You play ALL the notes on the keyboard with today's fabulous entries.

Geoff King said...

We have certainly lost a record number of great entertainers this year. Perhaps they are the lucky ones in that they will not have to watch the further erosion of our country and society in general.
I own and cherish the Gene Wilder hits Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Silver Streak.

Fritzchen said...

...and Gilda Radner. Two bright comedic lights we could use now!

Re. Gene Wilder....please don't forget the original THE PRODUCERS. He (and the entire cast) were fabulous in this gem of a Mel Brooks movie!

I suspect that Huma Abedin aspires to be the Valerie Jarrett of the Clinton Administration....

Sortahwitte said...

Pete, I think val expects to be held over. After all what difference does it make at this point? One traitorous hummy-hummy goathumper is just like another.

One of the consistencies in life I've observed over the decades is how women who consider themselves "feminist" always seem attracted to the sleaziest sort of guys. They then make the assumption (or rationalization) that all men are just as sleazy, when in fact the problem is that it's only the guys they find attractive that are sleazy. The men they otherwise reject outright for various, usually superficial reasons are just fine.

Guys like Weiner usually don't turn that way overnight. My guess is that there were plenty of signs that he was a creep long before Huma married him, but for whatever reason she ignored those signs, or might have even found them attractive in some way. The only thing that depresses me is that they brought a poor, innocent kid into the middle of this dysfunction who gets these two losers as parents.

But this may in fact be a small price to pay for Huma, as it gets the various investigations regarding her multiple roles at the State Department and the Clinton Foundation off the front pages. The media will much prefer to spend the remainder on the campaign season on this than the transparent corruption of this crowd.

So very Kerry: He's just demonstrating that 4-to-8 years of a Kerry Administration would leave the world just as f-ed up as it is under Obama.

But he's right. Life for the Progressive elite would be much easier without the media conducting what little actual journalism they do documenting the left's multicultural nightmare. He's no doubt jealous of how the leftist-dominated media in Europe is doing it's part by ignoring the obvious.

Of course, the logical result of this level of journalistic malpractice has led to the rise of the totally out-of-control and hated "Alt-Right" media. That's why their next priority needs to be to get a lid on the Internet itself.

I'll say this about Lurch Kerry. Give that man a segative! Does he entertain notions of keeping his alleged job if Bat-shit-crazy Clinton is elected? If so, I suspects he best just get used to being "Mr. Teresa Heinz" after blatantly stating the liberal disdain for a free press. Did Lurch and Joe Biden go to the same, bargain basement "How to be a Politician" seminar or something?

Gene Wilder will be sorely missed. And, thanks to Mel Brooks for spotting that talent and sharing it with us. Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein are my two favorite movies of all time, and I'll join y'all in watching them both for the umpteenth time, and laughing my ass off yet again.

That, sir is FUNNY!

re: Gene Wilder, he's with Gilda now

Re: Huma, she married 'the weiner' for the same reason Hillary married Bill, to ride on his coattails; weiner attractive, blick!

tom hull said...

An older movie "Start the revolution without me" was also one of his great performances.Great artiste,will be missed

Granny said...

A forgotten gem in Gene Wilder's career is the cameo he did in Bonnie and Clyde. (He was the guy who sat in the backseat of his own stolen car.) His legacy will live on.

chef621 said...

Well, I snorted ice tea for the first time, over "Lurch". It fits perfectly. Also reminds me of Gomer Pyle, only Jim was acting. (Sorry Jim) Gomer was actually much smarter.

Hat tip to "The Frisco Kid" (the scene where he's arguing with the old Indian about God making rain)?

A friend from Boston related this to me. A late night radio program wanted people to call in with their best john kerry story. The winner: A line of people were waiting to enter a movie theatre. Kerry's limo pulls up and his posse gets out and goes to the front of the line. Everyone starts yelling at the line cutters. Lurch says loudly: "don't you know who I am?" A voice from the crowd hollars back: Yeah, you're a gold-digger and an asshole.

Colby Muenster said...

In retrospect, isn't it sorta ironic that we are discussing Young Frankenstein and John Kerry in the same blog post? Slap a couple of bolts on Kerry's neck and he's damn near a dead ringer for the Boris Karloff version. Abby somebody indeed....

Geoff King said...

Here's a fair, albeit short, compilation of Gene Wilder's brilliance:

QuesoGrande said...

@JohntheEcon, not only were there SIGNS, there were newspaper articles. He'd already been outed as Carlos Danger before they married.
