    I like the one from TMZ:
    "Boehner Tells Weiner to Evacuate Prematurely"

    Or, after he decided to resign,
    "Weiner pulls out"

    Its going to be pretty hard for him to come back after this - he'll need a bit of time to erect a new platform, not to mention the fact that he's got stiff competition in his district.

    From all indications, if he tries to run again Weiner's going to get eaten for lunch by his opponent.

      I thought the polls suggested that most people in his area did not want him to resign.

      He should just let it go since he's marked for life.

      He made me laugh a lot.

        Ironically, Weiner is pronounced (WINE-R)! EI is a dipthong in german that is ALWAYS pronounced as a long english I, like it is in EINSTEIN!(TWO examples of it right there!)

        But Wine-r might have seemed doomed to ridicule ALSO!

        And GEE, one of those pictures looks like he is trying to SCARE women. I mean look at his face and expression. YIKES!

          It maybe pronounced that way when you're IN Germany, but pronunciations change, especially when they cross national borders. He is a representative in the U.S. and has chosen to use the wee-ner pronunciation (or maybe someone a few generations back chose to do so).

          Look at Steven Colbert for example. He pronounces it col-bare, while others in his immediate family pronounce it as col-bert, with a hard 'T'. Which is correct?

          All the best,
          Michael

      It's got to the point here where the late night shows don't even need a joke.
      As soon as any of them say "and congressman Wiener" the audience just roar with laughter.

        LOL,that is true.

        Most people have no idea what he actually did but his name and the words "sex scandal" have been put out there so many times people don't care,just seems guilty after so many times seeing his face and hearing "underage" and "sexual" associated with it.

            Given the current circumstances "Droopy Dogs" may be a better name. I'm sure his ego is a wee bit deflated right now.

    OK, EVERY time I hear the word "gentleman"/"gentlewoman" referring to a politician, I think of THIS The Distinguished Gentleman (1992) - IMDb comedy! That is UNFAIR, since eddie murphy plays the part of a conman gone straight!

      I was laughing out loud yesterday watching John King on CNN.

      He was in the news mode of the day - frantic excitement - going to be a resignation - news conference in a few minutes - joy, joy - and his tongue tripped over his tooth.

      After saying the name "Anthony Weiner" about 6 times, King transposed to "Congressman Weenie" loud and clear and had to correct himself. Truly a prime news moment!

          At least here in NY we try to keep the rest of the country laughing.
          I mean a congressman named wiener.
          A governor who was busted with a hooker after he busted hookers as the A.G.
