How can you be a non-religious household and have a strong sense of Judaism? Judaism is a difficult religion. Unless you put in hundreds of hours studying and practicing it, it is impossible to have any sense of Judaism, let alone a “very strong sense.”
I’ll be so sad to see this guy disappear from politics.
About 10 p.m. last night, I figured we had enough facts that I should put together a “Joe Friday”-style straight-news version of the WeinerGate saga, which I posted at The American Spectator:
The Internet was abuzz Saturday after it was reported that Rep. Anthony Weiner had apparently sent a lewd photo to a Seattle-area college student. The New York Democrat quickly asserted that his online accounts had been “hacked” after Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com reported that Weiner’s Twitter account was used to send the photo, which shows the pelvic area of a man in gray undershorts with his tumescent penis bulging. . . .
Read the whole thing. By the time I got that story finished and online,Jonathan Allen and Ben Smith of Politico had this: “Weiner’s office did not respond to a request for comment on whether he has contacted federal authorities to report the alleged cyber-attack, which could fall under laws prohibiting cyberhacking and impersonating federal officials.”
That’s crucial. By claiming that his accounts had been “hacked,” Weiner was asserting that he was the victim of a crime, which he would obviously want to report to the proper authorities. And Weiner’s claim is now a matter of public record, reported by the New York Post:
“Anthony’s accounts on both Facebook and Twitter were hacked,” said spokesman Dave Arnold. The photo does not belong to the Democrat and wasn’t taken by him, Arnold added.
…Anybody who looks at this is going to notice things like Dan Riehl noticed and Moe Lane noticed. I guarantee you reporters at the New York Times and the Washington Post are already sniffing around this story.
What does Joe Scarborough and who follows or doesn’t follow me or Ms. Garrett have to do with Congressman Anthony Weiner of NY 9th district andhis claim that someone hacked his twitter and photo accounts to send a photo of an erect penis in underwear to a young lady? Everything!
Congressman Weiner’s district is in NY. He is a man of some national prominence, a liberal who is not afraid of taking on conservatives directly. The phone message at his national office is personable and friendly. He is a regular guest on Morning Joe and is not shy about appearing anywhere. His national prominence dwarfs mine of course.
As of this moment 10:03 a.m. EST he has over 45K followers (45737 to be exact) I’m not one of them. He also follows only 194 people.
Until 48 hours ago one of those people was Gennette Noble the young lady who is at the center of this interesting event.
Just to remind you. Gennette Noble is a 21-year-old college student in Seattle Washington. She writes for the college newspaper. She seems a fairly attractive young girl and until 24 hours ago I knew absolutely nothing about her. I doubt many people on the net did. It would be fair to say that her prominence compared to me is of the same proportion of my prominence compared to Joe Scarborough.
