Weiner Apologists Fall All Over Themselves To Defend Him

A few usual suspects:

Garafalo (JammieWearingFool):

"On the same day the lamestreamers are poring over Palin emails, she whines about the media being obsessed with Weiner. If only they had been two weeks ago he'd probably already be in rehab."

Barbara Walters (The Daily Caller):

"Walters also defended Weiner by attacking former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. She argued if Palin can make a bus tour and be considered viable for the presidency, then Weiner can get away with this and continue to be a sitting congressman."

Alec Baldwin (HuffPo):

"My thought on Weiner is that he is a very busy man."

Sandra Bernhard (HuffPo):

"Weiner's weiner is wearing you out!

" 'Haha, well not literally. I'm tired of this whole topic. Something had to have happened for this to get out. Somewhere along the lines he took a picture of his crotch. What the hell are you doing?"

Charlie Rangel (WSJ via Big Government):

"He suggested that other members of Congress had done worse things than Weiner, who admitted this week to sending racy messages and explicit photographs of himself to women he didn't know.

" 'I don't know what he did, who he offended. I know one thing: He wasn't going with prostitutes. He wasn't going out with little boys. He wasn't going into the men's room with broad stances,' said Rangel."

Charles Johnson (The Blogmocracy):

"Charles has posted 11 articles defending Anthony Weiner. He even had his minions conduct experiments to prove Weiner didn’t do the tweets. His culprit is some obscure website called yfrog!"

Weiner's constituents (NPR):

"But a new poll shows that a majority of the his constituents in Queens and Brooklyn want him to stay in office, even after the revelation that he sent lewd photos of himself to young women over the Internet and then lied about it. The poll also suggests that many of Weiner's constituents would vote for him again — if they get the chance."
