Never underestimate the potential dumbness of politicians.

So, Anthony Weiner. And his weiner. I don't really have much to say.

But it occurs to me that the best way out of the "should he resign/should he not resign" question is pretty simple. Presumably he knows someone, very possibly someone who works as his campaign manager or something, who shares his political views but has not recently been caught sending pictures of his crotch to college aged girls. He should ask that person to run against him in the next primary, without animosity, to give the voters in his district a chance to be represented by someone who won't be held back by a scandal. Or the voters can opt to tolerate the scandal in order to keep their representative who's established himself as someone who can go head to head with Fox News types. My guess is that he'd win, and with renewed credibility.
