Video: Weiner Refuses to Answer Questions About Nontroversy
On CNN, Rep. Anthony Weiner tells reporters he isn’t going to talk about the incredibly dumb “Weinergate” nontroversy. Do you think this is the right way for him to handle the situation?
I don’t know how I’d handle it, but I do know that this is exactly what smear merchants like Andrew Breitbart count on. If they can get their target into a position where he has to deny their accusations, there’s just no way for the target to look good. If he denies, he looks like he has something to hide, and if he says he won’t talk about it, he also looks like he has something to hide. He can’t win. No matter what Weiner says at this point, it’s going to be used to make him look bad.
