I’ve done my best to remain blissfully unaware of what it is Rep. Anthony Weiner did to get himself in political trouble. But I did note that as soon as the controversy, um, revealed itself, wise voices pointed out a simple way for Weiner to avoid having to leave office as a result — simply, refuse to resign.

Alec Baldwin is rumored to be eyeing Gracie Manor in a starring role as mayor of New York City in 2013 election. Congressman Anthony Weiner had been favored as the Democratic candidate to replace Michael Bloomberg, who will face term limits in in 2013. Sadly, multiple online philanderings may have shafted Weiner’s dreams. Baldwin, the star of NBC’s 30 Rock, has said he will retire from show business in 2012.

Weiner: Wasn’t hacked. Sent the tweet out, panicked and said he was hacked. Has had text and phone relationships with six women, some before but some after his marriage. No physical relationship.

I dunno why so many people are acting so weird about that picture that wound up on Mr. Weiner’s Bookfaced site or Witter or whatever it was. Funny, when Mr. Vitter’s nanny talked about how he still wuvvvs wearing diapers, the WaPo didn’t invite Chris Lehane to spend a few hours talking to people online about it.

You don’t often get a piece of cable TV this good, so it’s worth transcribing and posting in its entirety. In a rare and contentious eight minute cable news segment, Glenn Greenwald decided to set the record straight with Eliot Spitzer on MSNBC regarding the Gaza flotilla.

The biggest problem here is that the reconciliation bills passed by the House and Senate are almost certain to differ, and setting up a conference report would subject the fixes to the filibuster that the reconciliation process was designed to circumvent. One way or another, the House will have to eat some bad provisions, unless the Senate installs major party discipline on everything not already worked out by agreement.
