Anthony Weiner Declares Candidacy For Mayor, Asking For 'Second Chance'

05/22/2013

Ex-New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was forced out of office by a scandal, announced his run for mayor of New York City in the Democratic primary early Wednesday morning.

“Look, I’ve made some big mistakes and I know I’ve let a lot of people down,” Weiner said in a two-minute YouTube video released early Wednesday morning. “But I’ve also learned some tough lessons. I’m running for mayor because I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it for my entire life. And I hope I get a second chance to work for you.”

The Interfaith Baby Boom

We intermarried Jews are breeding like crazy.

The Israel-born actress Natalie (Hershlag) Portman, who is engaged to French dancer Benjamin Millepied, apparently just gave birth to a boy.
Since Portman has said in previous interviews that she planned to raise her children as Jews, I’m assuming this one belongs to the Tribe. Who knows? Maybe she’ll even decide to invite over that Monster Mohel featured recently in the disturbingly anti-Semitic “Foreskin Man” comic circulated by California’s anti-circumcision “intactivists.”

Then there is Anthony Weiner. Among other tidbits to emerge from the past week and a half’s round-the-clock Weinergate is that the congressman’s Muslim wife, Huma Abedin, is in the early stages of pregnancy. And presumably he is the father, unless in some dramatic twist of the whole aggrieved/betrayed wife scenario, he is not.

Wiener On Weiner: Two Intermarried Hot Dogs
