Democrat leaders call for Weiner resignation

Posted By on Sat, Jun 11, 2011 at 1:28 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Steve Israel have called on Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign. News that his social media chat buddies included a 17-year-old apparently motivated the triple blast, though all reports indicate this particular dialogue didn't dip to crotch level.

If it's OK with David Vitter it's OK with me.

Speaking of resignations: NBC ought to force one for Tracy Morgan. Tina Fey's response, including friendly humor for the hateful "comic," was disappointing. Norma Bates' commentary on last night's open line says it all.

UPDATE: No resignation yet. Instead, Weiner has announced he's taking a leave of absence to get "professional treatment."

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
