Breaking News: Anthony Weiner To Resign

Reported by Ellen - June 16, 2011 -

Somewhere, you know that Fox News Bullyboy and Wieiner wiener-obsessor Sean Hannity is doing the happy dance (and pretending otherwise) along with Roger Ailes and new media's Joseph McCarthy Andrew Breitbart. The Democrats are undoubtedly telling themselves they've resolved the problem.

From the New York Times:

Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told House leaders and friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House, said a top Democratic official and two people told of Mr. Weiner’s plans.

...The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old congressman of his committee assignments, a blow that would severely damage his effectiveness.

I'm sure just about every Fox News Democrat (except maybe Juan Williams who did a terrific job pushing back the other night) will be patting him or herself on the back for their even-handedness - and probably getting props from their conservative colleagues - as they wring their hands over Weiner. Meanwhile, everyone else at Fox will hide their smugness as they put Weiner's scalp on their trophy shelf along with ACORN, Van Jones and some NPR executives. And, of course, Shirley Sherrod. What did they do wrong again?

The more important question now is, who's next?
