Weiner Was Set Up!!!!!! Liberals Prove It!
So, the big story is that Joseph at Cannonfire has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Anthony Weiner was framed, and Case Closed!!!!!!1!!!!!
Folks, I need your help! Reader milowent offers the most intriguing possibility to arise out of this entire case:
easiest way to pull off this as a hoax would be if you knew weiner’s yfrog email address. email a blackberry pic to that email address with (@subject) in text and you’d create exactly what happened here.
would require no password hacking (you wouldn’t even need to know his password to do it).
the chance that somewhere along the way that weiners yfrog address had been leaked? pretty damn high. it would happen if weiner or an aide simply forwarded a pic he emailed to his yfrog account to anyone else (thus showing the yfrog email address in the chain).
And they played around with all this, but, there seems to be one little problem which no seems to have tried to replicate: the Tweet in question was directing that crotch shot directly to a specific follower, not as a general tweet.
The proofy screencaps of Joseph attempting to replicate how easy it would have been to add the crotch shot in fails to demonstrate the addition of someone else’s Twitter name.
Still, Gateway Pundit destroys CANNONFIRE’s (ever notice that Liberals love to name their blogs in all caps? Like they’re screaming all the time) narrative, and even Rachel Maddow agrees. Just One Minute piles on. As does Red State. And Jammie Wearing Fool writes
Let’s face it. Everyone on the planet knows what happened here. It’s just Weiner and his desperate left-wing blogosphere fanboys don’t want to admit it. Anything that in their minds that would ostensibly give the right a “victory” just cannot happen, and they’ll be happy to sacrifice every last shred of credibility to have their way
Were Weiner a Republican, he would have already been forced to resign. For myself, I could care less if Weiner tweeted a crotch shot to a follower. That’s his business, regardless of being a sitting Congress Critter. I really do not expect “better behavior” from a Congress-person. The fallout should be between he and his wife. All in all, this is no big deal, except in the notion that the MSM would have simply destroyed a Republican had one done this. There’s a true double standard.
Just substitute, say, Senator Coburn [I picked Coburn because he has been a strong voice on health care] for Senator
So much for Hollywood’s days of the sweeping Biblical epic, I suppose, but a film director and author of a
