So Weiner loses his career & wife in the same year
I've certainly had worse years than that. He's a pussy.
He lost his wife?
I'm sure his wife will leave soon enough.
I bet if Hillary told her "leave him and you're back in my good graces," she will leave Weiner.
"I bet if Hillary told her "leave him and you're back in my good graces," she will leave Weiner."
If Hillary Clinton, of all people, said that to Huma Abedin, it would be the most ironic ultimatum in the history of the planet.
It would be, R6, but Bill actually has a career/power - that's the difference.
I'm sure Hil would tell her in private.
Isn't this premature? There's been no gossip yet she's left him.
She hasn't been seen since her husband's press conference with Mr. Wilson in the
background. Apparently she never publicly
voted yesterday (maybe mail-in?) as is usually
done by candidates and their families.
I suspect the latest sexting scandal was the last straw. And Spitzer's wife has never divorced him, though apparently they don't live together anymore. Politicos' wives (and presumably their husbands if they are women elected officials playing around) have less reason than ever to stay married to the bum.

Maybe she's washing her hair.
As long as my cell phone cam works, I'm good.
Weiner = total loser!
She's staying away because she works for Hillary and Hillary doesn't want his loss to taint her run for President.
Carlos, you in danger gurrrll
He lost his career a couple years ago, it just took until this year to prove it.
What kind of job can he get now? What type of business would hire him?
R17 He can do an ironic/humorous ad for a cell phone company. Or he can become the celebrity spokesperson for an upscale sex-addict rehab facility in Connecticut or Malibu. In a few years he can hawk the PosT Vac penis pump on late-night television.
He can open a faux-suave restaurant called "Carlos'"
Or a lower-market chain called "Carlos' Wiener Hut".
Sitcom idea: Spitzer, Weiner both thrown out by their wives, move in together, start wacky political consulting firm. – Commentary‘s John Podhoretz.
I wanted Spitzer to win. Whatever character flaws, I never doubted his dedication to fighting Wall Street.
Or he can jump.Off one of many NYC bridges. Buh-byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, asshole.
I don't understand the over-the-top hate for this guy. Arrogant politicians are a dime-a-dozen. When you compare him to others, he isn't bad at all.
He has a really cute kid.
R21 has it.
...and hilarity ensues.

An over-the-top hatemonger is loose at R24 - doesn't have the intelligence to know the difference between "hate" and "dislike." He thinks stating facts about Weiner (liar, can't be trusted) is equal to "hate."
Confidential to R24: Just because I'm saying you're stupid, doesn't mean I "hate" you.

Maybe we are just tired of seeing the Weiner?
He can get a job peppering Internet message boards with posts about how much better the Nokia Lumia is than the iPhone.
We don't hate him. We consider him a figure of fun.
R29, Weiner definitely has that poster's demeanor but does he have its persistence?
Weiner was a rotten congressman and he had the highest staff turnover in congress.
She wasn't at his election night party and he didn't mention her in his concession speech.
He can always go on Dancing With The Stars.

On March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that Spitzer had previously patronized a high-priced prostitution service called Emperors Club VIP and met for over two hours with a $1,000-an-hour call girl. This information originally came to the attention of authorities from a federal wiretap. Spitzer had at least seven or eight liaisons with women from the agency over six months, and paid more than $15,000. According to published reports, investigators believe Spitzer paid up to $80,000 for prostitutes over a period of several years while he was Attorney General, and later as Governor. Spitzer first drew the attention of federal investigators when his bank reported suspicious money transfers under the anti-money laundering provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act and the Patriot Act.. The resulting investigation, triggered by the belief that Spitzer may have been hiding bribe proceeds, led to the discovery of the prostitution ring.

Are you serious? I bet she's getting a divorce from him.
Maybe he can do Celebrity Apprentice?
Weiner can cum and stay with me, I love a bad boy.
He's quite homely.
He can open a law firm if he's an attorney. There are lots of sleaze balls who would be happy to avail themselves of his services.
[quote] but Bill actually has a career/power - that's the difference.
Not only that, but Bill Clinton was a brilliant politician and knew how to survive every misstep. Anthony Weiner is a guy who will never learn from his mistakes and blatantly allowed the country to see what a douchebag he is.
omg Huma is a muslim!!!!!
The despised right-wing talk-show host Michael Savage's real name is Michael Weiner.
Maybe Anthony Weiner should follow suit and become Anthony Brute, and start a left-wing talk show?
In the meantime he should become a cock double in porn for guys who can't keep it up. He do have a purdy pecker.
He didn't lose anything, he threw it away.
Ms. Leathers showed up at his election party in a low cut dress. Sounds like she's saying she came to gloat.
Love his excuses as to why Huma wasn't there:
“She’s on a call. She will be voting today also,” Weiner said. “She was in Washington late into the night. She’s got some meetings and some calls and some stuff she’s working on too. She’s got her own busy thing going on.”
I'm sure if he's strapped for cash, he can get a quick $10,000 in one of those celebrity porn deals.
[quote]Isn't this premature? There's been no gossip yet she's left him.
Rumors of a divorce are already swirling around NYC, as they are for Spitzer.
When it comes to Weiner, all the reporters said that Huma Abedin was not at Weiner's campaign headquarters last night for his concession speech, nor did he apparently even mention her in his speech.
Both papers had pics of Huma yesterday on the day after the election. She was luminous. The NY Post hilariously had front page pics of both Huma and Mrs. Spitzer, also glowing
Implication being they're happy their husbands' careers are destroyed? Hard to believe.
they r lesbians, lol.
He may have lost his career and wife in the same MONTH. Has she been seen anywhere near him since the Priary? He took the baby to Union Square alone to use the swings and had one of his now famous meltdowns. Just sayin'.
And Hillary's put stern screws on Huma: Either him or me. Wow! Two tough ladies.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
