Weiner News Conference Coverage

I don't have anything in particular to say about this; I didn't read a ton of coverage. I picked this article because it includes the truly surreal bit about supporting Arnold's love child.

I was obviously _very_ wrong when I said the conservative bloggers responsible for this were going to regret it. They _weren't_ responsible for this. Altho I guess it's still possible they'll wind up regretting it; politics can be funny like that.

TRMS did a "consequence-o-meter" bit on this, but in surreal terms, this is definitely beaten by the Jenrette incident which led to the name of the comedy troupe "Capitol Steps" (Jenrette's involvement in Abscam being less surreal, obviously).
