Keepin’ It Real Tuesday: Rep. Anthony Weiner
Matt | On 31, Aug 2010
I’ve seen outspoken Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and a few other C-Span clips of note. He even made it to Prune Juice Media back in February for an outburst on the House floor. He pulls no punches and is CLEARLY from the state of New York.
The Congressman took to his Twitter account this week to seemingly lash out at Republicans with his idea of a Campaign 2010 slogan. He said:
“It takes a great man to build a barn. Any jackass can kick it down. Campaign ’10: You with the builders or the asses?”
That’s my kinda language!! Simple, to the point, and accurate as hell in 140 characters or less. Later, Weiner said that he wasn’t attacking Republicans. But since he put it in the framework of a campaign slogan, you gotta use common sense to know who he was talking about.
I do find it somewhat ironic and funny that a Democrat would use the “asses” metaphor. The donkey is the symbol of the Democratic party. Also, you gotta love a guy with a last name Weiner making a fuss about anything. I’m sure he’s taken his fair share of jokes over that one.
