Weinergate

It’s been an odd spectacle watching news coverage of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, as he fields questions about a lewd photograph that was sent from his Twitter account to a 21-year-old college student. Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked, but when asked directly whether the bulging boxers in question were his, Weiner said that he couldn’t say “with certitude” that it wasn’t.

A politician with the last name Weiner unable to deny a lewd photo was him? That’s all cartoonists need to run away with the story.

Here’s my take…

I thought it was particularly funny that St. Louis Post-Dispatch cartoonist R.J. Matson would drag the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile into this…

Taylor Jones' caricature of Weiner’s misplaced briefs made me laugh…

As did this cartoon by Eric Allie showcasing Weiner as an “unintentional” flasher…

Sadly, Weiner is only the latest in a long line of Congressmen that have over-exposed themselves, as Adam Zyglis of the Buffalo News notes…

They may all be “Congressional Weenies,” but he’s still the only true Weiner in Congress.
