All Weiner, All the Time

Weinergate has moved into that special hypernews category where a new groaner comes out every five minutes or so. Yesterday we learned that the full x-rated weiner was indeed tweeted; that Democrats are stepping up calls for his resignation; and his wife, Huma Abedin, is three months pregnant.

We also learned that Weiner wrote pages of raunchy emails to a Nevada blackjack dealer -- and was making plans to meet her. And that young women were warned about Weiner by a conservative Twitter group months before the scandal broke.

Thank goodness nothing else has happened this week!
