When I saw the headline I thought it was something Slew would make up.
First Mark Sanford and now Weiner, what's wrong with these voters. Is this really the best we can do?

Wiener's poll rising? I didn't think pictures of his poll rising were what got him into trouble.

The closest anyone comes to pointing out that Weiner will need to provide a reason beyond his own emotional well-being to get elected mayor is a quote from an anonymous political consultant who reasonably points out,“Sure, voters can get past his scandal. But why do they have to? There are four established candidates. Who are the voters who say,‘I need Anthony Weiner back?’”

The fact that Weiner can even consider a comeback—and be taken seriously by the likes of the New York Times—is further evidence to support my contention that the political-sex-scandal-as-autom atic-career-ender is a thing of the past. But that doesn’t excuse a disgraced politician from the basic demands of running for office. One reason Weiner has so few friends is that most members of Congress, including his fellow Democrats, regarded him as chiefly concerned with his own aggrandizement—he spent more time shouting at Republicans on cable television than legislating. Given how that turned out for him, you might imagine he’d be especially eager to show some substance. You’d imagine New York City voters would want to see that, too.
