Anthony Weiner Latest Recipient of the Ol' White Powder Envelope

PEOPLE JUST HATE JEWS, AM I RIGHT?Just as the Awl Editorial Board has come around on Anthony Weiner (D-New Yawk), and yes, we are pretty pro, after years of finding him unlovable, today perhaps the wingnut right has just now cemented our position: "Law enforcement officials say a package with white powder was sent to Congressman Weiner's Queens office today. A preliminary review shows the letter in part complained about the historic health care legislation passed by Congress this week, according to the source." American terrorism! I guess they had to go the extra mile because the letters calling him "Shlomo" weren't enough, apparently. (Hey, also, remember when the right wing talking point was always "ALL MUSLIMS MUST LOUDLY RENOUNCE THE TERRORISM OF THE (40 or 50 TERRORIST) MUSLIMS?" Anyone? Because… So… You see… Oh never mind.)

First impressions are always correct, at least in this one case.

Democrats showed they have a spine. Now it's time to follow-up. Seize this opportunity like the crazy-wing-nuts would and get every member with a D after his name on the Teevees yelling about why hasn't every Republican member in congress renounced these acts yet? so it's the only god-damn thing we can hear for the next 3 weeks. It's crass, calious and completely childish – and it will work like a charm. Please please please pay them back for all those years we were being called terrorists. Please.

The President's line today in Iowa City, re. Republicans running on a promise to repeal health care reform: "My attitude is, go for it! If they want to have that fight, we can have it."

Hooray for good ol'-fashioned politics. And by that, I mean "balls".
