That’s the place where apparently you say and/or do anything you want, and complain about bad press coverage after. I admit “Yes he did” was the only thing I’ve been thinking on Anthony Wiener. I tried to avoid discussing it. Even the jokes get old.
When Wiener’s road show seems to hit a dead end, he adds a few more rings to his circus. I mean if you thought he was raunchy, he just outdid himself… or his campaign upstaged him. He must be hiring from his personal email list.
Turns out his communications person for the campaign is a walking talking x-rated gaffe-master, sorority girl in her own right. That must be common for him because one of his disgruntled intern staffers wrote a tell-all about Wiener’s campaign.
But just as you think that is bad enough to have a staffer spilling the beans on the x-rated candidate, the reaction from his spokesperson was even worse. She called her a bitch, the c-word, the t-word, and finished her sorority smack down by calling her a “slutbag”, which lit twitter on fire. Is the whole world laughing yet? She also said she was going to fire her but the staffer begged for a second chance. ( Didn’t I hear that one before?)
Apparently everyone around the globe is now waiting for the definition of “slutbag”
Talking Points memo said:
TPM called Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan to discuss an unrelated story Tuesday and she went off on a curse-filled rant about Nuzzi, describing her as a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Morgan also called Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “t**t,” and “c**!” while threatening to sue her.
Imagine that, Nuzzi sucked at her job but she kept her. Now I’m really confused.
Yesterday you had Clinton’s pissed off at Wiener. Is there anyone left he hasn’t offended? Yet yesterday he also took to the air saying: ‘Quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City’. And how we heard from his spokesperson, any questions? So we just had to see the way Anthony Wiener rolls.
Unlike Wiener, by tomorrow I’ll be embarrassed that I posted this.
Update to the story: Wiener’s communication director apologized for her language thinking it was off-record. Duh, a campaign has a communications blowout and she thought it was off record? Does the DNC need a new communications person?
Welcome to Wienerworld, where anything can happen at any time – apologies to follow.
Good thing his spokesperson is a woman, or he might have had a real problem.
As Led Zeppelin’s song by the same name goes:
“Communication Breakdown, It’s always the same,
I’m having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane!”
