Because Mike Bloomberg has more money and name recognition, and you, like all New York Democrats, are scared to actually take him on and end your comfortable career?
No, of course not! It's because Anthony Weiner can better serve New York in the House of Representatives. You know, the place where progressive legislation basically passes without much trouble. He wouldn't want to give up his important seat to some other Democrat who would vote the same way!
Here are two randomly selected sentences that sum up why Anthony Weiner bugs the shit out of us:
- "I WAS the kind of New York kid who played stickball in the street, made pocket change working at the local bagel store and handed out leaflets on Election Day."
- "As a native of Brooklyn, I'd be lying if I said I didn't savor a good scrap."
WE GET IT WEINER YOU GREW UP WITH THE FUCKING DEAD END KIDS.
