While Americans were celebrating the Memorial Day Weekend honoring our fallen heroes, visiting family and friends and gathering at barbecues, a political scandal was unzipping. New York Congressman Anthony Weiner (D) is accused of sending a lewd photo to a woman in Seattle. Weiner has claimed his Twitter account was hacked into.

So this of course, set off a flurry of ribald messages among my friends:
Couldn't happen to a more deserving blowhard.
...I would revel in a Weiner roast!
The next step would be for organs of state security to get involved.
It might be a hard case, though...
Well, if they can stand up to the challenge, this whole thing could be consummated in short order.
This will be a brief story. I don't expect any penetrating coverage by the media.
Indeed the media has most certainly shot their wad on this already.
