Reports are circulating that Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, might be pondering a political comeback.
This can’t be happening. Can it?
Weiner’s congressional career came to a screeching halt when it was revealed — no pun intended, honest — that he had emailed photos of one of his body parts to female acquaintances. Once the word got out, Weiner at first denied it, then admitted it, then quit the House of Representatives.
He sought — he said — to heal his marriage. Weiner went into hiding, more or less.
Then he returned to run for mayor of New York. Weiner professed to be cleared of his addiction to this kind of disgraceful behavior.
But wait! Then reports surfaced that, yep, he was doing it again — under the name of Carlos Danger.
Late-night comics went ballistic. Once their jokes took off into the stratosphere, Weiner’s poll numbers tanked.
He finished far back in the pack of the New York Democratic Party primary.
And then he was gone again. Or so some of thought — and hoped.
He wrote this on Facebook: “What’s next? I’ll keep you posted on my plans. But I hope we keep the band together.” He thanked his friends, apparently leaving the door slightly ajar for yet another foray into public life.
Spare the country, please, of the bad jokes and puns. Please?
