OOST: Let’s Have Fun w/Weiner-gate

Out Of Stater Tater: Can we please, please, PLEASE have a faux headline contest for Congressman Anthony Weiner? Pretty please! It’s like a once in a lifetime coincidence for a politician with the name “Weiner” to be caught in a sex scandal! With so much depressing news out there, everybody could use a little comic relief. THINK OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES! They are endless!

Question: Against my better judgment, I present the back story of the viral story re: Rep. Weiner and the lewd photo tied to him via Twitter over the Memorial Day weekend. Democrats insist "Weinergate" is no scandal. What do you think?
