If you thought losing his campaign manager was the worst of the fallout for sext machine Anthony Weiner, you clearly haven't seen this blazingly heated exchange between the mayoral candidate and a retired Staten Island teacher named Peg Brunda.

In addition to refusing questions on the topic of his sextual activities, Weiner may soon be forced to stop taking questions all together, after Brunda took him to task over the double standard inherent in his political ambitions.

"[H]ad I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yours, my job would have been gone," Brunda told a visibly stirred Weiner, who expected Brunda to be supportive of his run, given her Democratic affiliation.

But the veteran educator, who taught for 21 years and spent another 9 as an assistant principal, wasn't quite done taking Weiner to school.

I don't quite understand how you would feel you have the moral authority as the head administrator in the city to oversee employees when your standard of conduct is so much lower than the standard of conduct that's expected of us.

Not surprisingly, Weiner was none-too-keen to respond to Brunda's inquiry, replying instead with a variation on the familiar Big Lebowski line, "yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, ma'am."
