Weiner Lovers are Insane

New york Democratic rep. Anthony Weiner could have easily stopped the burgeoning "Weinergate" scandal in its tracks with a simple statement:

"I did not send that tweet. It is not a picture of me. Law enforcement has been notified and we will prosecute the person who sent this photo to the fullest extent of the law."

But as we all know, Wiener had the opportunity to say those things and instead imploded. He refused no less than four direct appeals by the media to deny that the erect member in the photo belonged to the belligerent member of Congress. Instead he evaded, hemmed and hawed, looking all the more guilty with each and every second.

Miraculously, there are still hardcore progressive zealots on the interwebs still insisting that Weiner is absolutely innocent, and that conservative firebrand Andrew Breitbart is somehow to blame.

Really, folks?

We've referred to the far left as the "community-based reality" (a play on their claim to be a "reality-based community") for a long time because of their penchant for concocting and then following conspiracy theories with religious fanaticism. Their contortions to blame right wing "hackers" for Weiner's unseemly tweet and spiraling collapse of evasions and non-denials, however, really drives home the fact that some are simply insane.

Investigation? If the twitter account is through the congressional IT department I'm sure there was a rapid and comprehensive investigation already which has definitively determined exactly what happened. All the when and wheres of IP addresses, MAC addresses involved and number of packets sent via what protocol. I'm sure the IT department was informed immediately when a congressman claimed he was hacked and that a lot of them worked over the weekend to find and fix/patch the whole in their network. Which means they have already run to ground what happened and can either confirm there was a flaw that' been patched to reassure the other representatives, senators, committees and their staffs--- or that there was no flaw to reassure those same folks they were not vulnerable or compromised.

It's a yes or no question. The answer to a yes or no question is not, "I'm not going to be distracted." When you refuse to answer a yes or no question, it's an admission that the answer is very bad for you.

Charles Johnson has become the King of Insane Leftists in this matter. People are weird.
