Irrespective of the fact I really couldn’t care what Weiner did online (he didn’t do anything illegal), and that I have low opinion of Breitbart, I still have to wonder how dumb a politician have to be to pull this kind of trick.
Come on! It’s 2011. The Internet is not a new phenomenon. Every public official ought to know that their every act and every word is going to be scrutinized, and could be used against them. It doesn’t mean this state of affairs is right, but it’s reality. People really ought to know better.
